Here's a DIY MIDI controller that can be used with Max/MSP, Ableton Live, and just about any other music software or hardware that offers MIDI I/O.
The project uses the MIDI CPU
, which can be used as a MIDI "brain" for DIY projects.
This zip file
includes the parts list (Open Office .ods), design drawings (Corel Draw .cdr & .png) and MIDI SysEx files (.txt and binary .syx) used in the project.
