This is a DIY project that uses a normal analog volume pedal that you may already own and convert it to MIDI to use with the Mod Devices (and other devices as well).
This project is simple enough to allow any of you who do not have any experience with electronics to be able to tackle it and get some results.
Yes you will need to use a soldering iron but this is a great time to learn a new skill that will serve you over and over in the future.
I do not pretend this project will solve all problems discussed in other threads, and yes, there are readily available solutions on the market that can fit this bill but I know that some of us still like to thinker with stuff and build their own in the same manner that some prefer to write their own songs rater than play covers.
Although fully functional, this first version of the MIDI Volume and Expression pedal converter is very basic and uses minimal amount of parts. But future versions can (and will) expand it to suit many applications and special needs.
Let’s get into it:
You can find the documentation here: Arduino_MIDI_Volume_Expression.pdf
The source code is already included in the document above but here’s a link to download it separately if you wish: Arduino_Volume.ino

Note: I know this subject is sensitive for some and this is why I created a new thread, but I really hope that posts here will be kept to a civilized level.
