Here Is What
You are going to learn:
The DIY MIDI Controller Workshop is a free three videos course that will teach you the first steps on how you can build your own MIDI controllers using the Arduino platform! The Arduino is a super low-cost, super powerful board, made for people, like you and me, without an engineering background. With an Arduino we can build an infinity of things, from robots to MIDI controllers! And... spending a fraction of the money you would spend in a factory MIDI controller. I promise it will be a game changer for you once you learn how to build your own equipment! So, if you are a DJ, VJ, music producer, audio engineer, multimedia artist, or any type of professional that works with music/visuals and a computer, you'll love this free course!

"The course was very important so that I could have the first impressions about programming and electronics. In fact, I bought the course in order to develop my thesis project in the area of MIDI controllers production for DJing, and it was what gave me a solid basis for the development of this project. In it, I was able to understand how the Arduino works, its components and the basis of programming for MIDI. Also, with the technical knowledge I learned in the course, I was able to find elements that were not present in the course for the development of my controllers, the way I wanted it."
