“Pitch to MIDI Tracker”
How to build a microcontroller-based
audio processor with MIDI input and output
The base for a whole lot more...
This pitch tracking interface was originally created to add MIDI capability to a Vacuum Tube Theremin. It was only after it was finished that I realised it could be used as the basis for a whole range of different electronic instruments.
Featuring an ATMEGA328 microprocessor, MIDI In and Out ports, signal processing hardware and some clever software this device is able to track both pitch and volume from its audio inputs and output a stream of realtime MIDI data that accurately reproduces the sound using a MIDI equipped synthesizer.
(I've been asked if I can provide a kit - I would need to get at least 15 people to commit - so far 4 have written to me to say they would - price point would be around the $100 mark)
Tested successfully with
the following Theremins:.
- PAIA Theremax.
- Moog Etherwave Plus.
- Keppinger Vacuum Tube Theremin.
