MIDI Drum set using keyboard?

Im wondering if I could make some piezo drum triggers, run them through and Arduino or other device, and then send MIDI signals from the Arduino to a Casio keyboard I have.  The keyboard would play the drum sounds.  So basically the triggers send a signal to the arduino and the arduino sends a signal to the keyboard.  Is this possible?

I have a 55 gal metal drum that I want to burn in.  Does anyone know how to set this up?  I think I want to bury it a little so we don't have to stand up all the time.  Someone said to set on something in the ground for ventilation.  Everyone says something but I can't find anyone that just knows how.  Thanks for your help. I want to use the drum for outdoor fun.  Bon fire type of thing with an occasional marshmellow roasting.

Is it possible to make a bass drum kick pedal that runs on usb and would be compatible with midi? Answered

I've got a midi drum controller that I like using [and would rather not destroy for the project], but I would much rather use a kick pedal for bass than my fingers. I was wondering if there was a way to make a bass drum kick pedal that was compatible with midi live (for example usb or something), as opposed to having to convert the audio to midi and all that mess.

How to properly setup an undefined numbers of piezos for drumming ?

Hello everybody ! I'm currently into a really cool project which gives me quite hard times. To begin, I'm a big noob in electronics, but I'm decent in programming. So i'm able to understand, learn or correct myself easily when it's about code, but I'm really in the dark for everything concerning electronics despite the fact that I read so much about it recently... My projet ------------ My goal is to make my own MIDI drum kit. Not a new idea, but the difference is that I want to use lot of pads. I bought some WII, XBOX and PS drum kits that I disassembled to get just de pads. Then I bought an Arduino Uno, not a mega because I'm a beginner and I can totally start with a small amount of pads, also I wanted the perfect solution in terms of compatibility etc. STEP ONE : 1 pad -------------------- So, I first made a prototype with 1 pad, which was very easy to do, since there is billion of officials and unofficials tutorials about how to connect a piezo to the Arduino. So basically, on my breadboard its like that (except im on A0 not A2) : http://learning.codasign.com/images/1/1e/Piezo_arduino.png So I connected my pad to the Arduino with a 1 Mohm resistor in parallel and I made a program which function very very well. You can read it the : http://codeshare.io/VzUGn The only challenge here was to set proper threshold and delay so the signal is clean when I hit the pad with a drumstick, to integrate the MIDI library and finally to find a software that makes the informations i send available in any of my favourites music softwares (Ableton Live, Maschine, ...), this software is Hairless Serial to MIDI, btw. STEP TWO : X pads --------------------------- It's when I'm getting troubles. At first I believed that all I needed to do was to reproduce the same schematic but "duplicate it" x times. So I tried with 4 pads. I used the same strategy on my breadboard : each pad is connected in parallel with a 1 M ohm resistor, but all are connected to ground. You can see it there : http://oi57.tinypic.com/aymsli.jpg The code, take the old one, but just loop on the 4 pins : http://codeshare.io/8Tb6z So here are the 2 issues : - The pad on the left is OK, like with my 1st program, the second one is still ok, the third one I have to hit a bit hard, the fourth one I have to hit VERY hard. - When I hit a pad, it seems it send electricity in others pins, I say that because when i connect the Arduino to a music software, hiting a pad = having multiples notes at the same time. For the hitting force issue, I'vre tried to play with resistances, puting higher or lower values and I got totally lost with that : nothing seemed to be better. About that "leaking" issue, I thought it could be useful to put some diodes, as i heard diodes are usefull when you want to make the current going in one way only, but when i watch some others schematics, i see no diodes and only 1 Mohms resistors everywhere, so I really don't know what is wrong and what to do. Here is the MIDI xylophone someone made and posted on instructables : https://cdn.instructables.com/FB6/VMRG/H4AGICO1/FB6VMRGH4AGICO1.LARGE.jpg I have no idea why this is working and why there is ground directly linked to these analog pins, and many other things i cannot understand. Any help would be really appreciated ! :)
