MIDI USB Controller Anno 2014
I saw few topics on the forum about MIDI controller but I would like to ask the question again because I saw you have some new products out and maybe have new advice for me.
I need a micro controller for USB MIDI controller. It's quite a simple project. I need about 10 digital pins and 4 analog pins max. I am using 4051 to multiplex analog inputs and 4021/595 for more digital inputs. A clock speed of 48Mhz should be enough. It needs to behave as a class compliant MIDI device in any computer. I am using at the moment a developpement board with a M4 but it's really overkill (96MHz) and expensive.
I saw your new PSoC 4 CY8CKIT-049 kits. Would that be something for me ?
It looks really good, quite small and very affordable. I am producing custom equipement in small serie, so avoiding SMD soldering is attractive and have a ready-to-go circuit is easier.
And a last question, is there any other way to acces USB's D+ and D- than the USB connector ?
Thanks in advance,
