I had fun making them! Thanks for taking a look!
Hello! You could use a Mega for the project. In fact I used a Mega before I learned to code with multiplexers for some other projects. A downside is that the UNO and MEGA don't have a native ability to plug in as a MIDI HID so you would need to run a Serial-MIDI converter software. Alternatively you could flash the firmware on the MEGA to have it become a MIDI class compliant device but I don't think you are able to change the code easily in the IDE after this is done. Good luck!
Hi Vuhahau, You can power the Uno by connecting a wire from the "VCC" pin on the pro micro to the "Vin" on the Uno and connecting the GND pins as well. The A1 pin from that line of code goes with the Uno board as it looks like it is part of the Neopixel code. Best of luck!
Check "Step 3" for a wiring diagram and Fritzing file. I hope it helps!
I don't have one written. I'll work on it and let you know when it is posted.

I used a laser etch over a spray painted pcb for this latest draft which gives better fidelity which is why the image isn't mirrored on this svg. If you make a version post a picture, happy making!

Yes, that is correct. I'm a bit embarrassed to say, but I did some copy-paste from a previous project where I used some of the MidiController library and I forgot to remove it. I guess it's just like all the cookies I ate over the holidays... A bit of extra weight and it serves no function. I'm a real novice when it comes to coding so when something works I really don't ask why most of the time! Thanks for your work on the MIDI Controller Library! It's my favorite one to use with Arduino!
Just finished a 2nd board with the C# using the capacitiveSensor.h library. I'll post an update soon.
The Teensy 3.2 only has 12 capacitive Touchsense pins and I wanted to complete the octave. I had to choose a note to leave out, so C# had to go. I think I can make my own capacitive circuit so I might try to add one more so I can make a complete chromatic octave for the next one!

Thanks for your question. I used a page out of a magazine that I taped to a normal 8.5x11in piece of paper. This method does not use any heat from a laminator or iron, just acetone in nail polish remover. This video helped me in the process:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVhSCEPINpM
I used the MIDI_Controller.h You can get it here: https://github.com/tttapa/MIDI_controller/blob/mas...Check the .ino file to see the code I used.
Thanks! It was fun to make!
