MIDI-Makey-Makey

Concept

Turn Makey Makey into MIDI Controller.

Mod the Makey Makey firmware so that it sends MIDI Note signals instead of keyboard keys signals.
Use JSFX Effects to map this signal inside a DAW or VST Host without re-changing the Makey Makey firmware.

Detailed article: JSFX Effects for MIDI Makey Makey

JSFX

Cockos JSFX effects are effects in a script format, which allow quick development and maintenance.

Cockos'DAW REAPER handle them natively, but they can be embeded in other DAW or VST host for free with Cockos ReaPlugs ReaJS VST plugin.

  2. Copy the URL https://github.com/X-Raym/MIDI-Makey-Makey/raw/master/index.xml
  3. Open REAPER
  4. Extension Menu > ReaPack > Import Repository > Paste the URL
  5. Synchronize Package
  6. JSFX should be avaible in your FX list!

Other DAW and VST Host

  2. Download JSFX from this repo
  3. Open ReaJS in your VST Host
  4. Import JSFX
  5. Enjoy!

Notes

Other JSFX, included in REAPER or from online repositories, can be especially useful for Makey Makey MIDI workflow:

  • Fixed MIDI Note Length (native), prevent too close notes to be sent. Useful to avoid indesired quick note repetions.
  • X-Raym_MIDI Note to CC (from X-Raym's REAPER-ReaScripts repo), can help you map a MIDI Note to a MIDI CC event.

Backup

If you want to restore Makey Makey default firmware, use the Sparkfun firmware.
