  • The MIDI Breakout board gives your Arduino or any other microcontroller access to the powerful MIDI communication protocol. The MIDI protocol shares many similarities with standard asynchronous serial interfaces, so you can use the UART pins of your microcontroller to send and receive MIDI's event messages. The MIDI Breakout provides both MIDI-IN and MIDI-OUT connections, as well as a MIDI-THRU port. The MIDI-IN port is opto-isolated to prevent ground loops. The MIDI Breakout board can be mounted directly on top of an Arduino like a shield, connecting the MIDI-IN/THRU to the Arduino's hardware RX pin and the MIDI-OUT to TX. All of the Arduino's digital and analog pins, as well as power and ground busses, are broken out as well. The RUN/PGM switch allows you to program the Arduino over serial without having to remove the shield.

  • Mechanic Dimensions

  • 2.25 x 2.10 " (57.15 x 53.34 mm)


  • Hardware Installation


  • Firstly,we should program the arduino,attach the MIDI breadout to the arduino board,connect the USBtoMIDI cable to PC and MIDI breadout board,the PC can recognize the device,then open the HappyEO,press the buttom “option”,select the common item and select the USB Audio Device as the output device.Then select the MIDI input item and select the USB Audio Device item.

  • If you has select the USB AUDIO DEVICE item,select Wave table software synthesizers as the output device, you can hear the music with the ear phone from the arduino+MIDI Breakout board. And you can see the LEDs is flash.

  • If you select the USB AUDIO DEVICE as the output device,Happy EO can send the data and command to arduino when wo press the keyboard,the led will falsh when it receive data.

Test code

The code blew is standard code,you can change the code on the basis of your requirement.
