i video'd a bunch. I'm working on posting it for download.

We discussed three ways to integrate arduino with midi, on a computer.

  * hiduino
  * a bit of proprietary code that Moldover has
  * Hairless

We configured Hairless on a mac to work with an arduino, and set up a 
simple, working switch on the arduino, to send midi messages to  
Merlin's mac. Great job, Merlin!

To me, these methods make sense if you're controlling midi software. 
But, if you want to control midi devices directly from physical 
controllers, there are probably other ways of doing that which do not 
require a computer.

Anyone is welcome to hack with the midi controllers donated by Livid. 
There are soft buttons, controller boards, lots of nice sliders, etc-- 
you do not have to use them with midi, but please use this stuff for 
noise/music hacking. It's in a big cardboard box, under a table near the 
laser cutter.
