I got asked to make some sort of trigger pads for the foot section of an organ working over midi to a electric piano and my friend wants it to be pressure sensitive so we can program in the note velocity when he's not using the organ sound.
That is what I try to achive. I want the pads to not just be on/off but also be able to control the velocity of the midi note.
Im planning to use a Adruino Uno with a MUX Shield II from Mayhew Labs to get 36 analog inputs. Not exactly sure on the wiring yet but have looked at some guides and videos on google to get a feel for how it can be made.
All these 36 piezo-"sensors" is planned to register how hard you push the pedals and then send out a MIDI signal with a specific note correspondig to the pedal, and velocity to the electric piano so you can control the low notes with your feet.
Just like that but more pedals and a lot cheaper.
Will the Arduino be able to read the analog output of the piezo sensor even though it's going through a multiplexer?
