PICO MIDI – External Power Supply

It’s time to finally drop the warm embrace of our USB tether and help our Pico MIDI become independent. In this post, for our Raspberry Pi Pico based MIDI pedal, we go through how to use external power. In my previous posts I covered how to send MIDI commands, how to support footswitch and LED, […]

PICO MIDI – External Switches

Let’s continue working on Pico MIDI – a Raspberry Pi Pico based MIDI pedal. In my previous posts I covered how to send MIDI commands, how to support footswitch and LED and how to support external expression pedal. Today, let’s add support for external switches. I’ll demonstrate that with RC-500 Boss looper, but I also […]

MIDI Control Pedal – The Beginning

I’ll call this pedal Pico MIDI because I’m using Raspberry Pi Pico for this. And it’s also of diminutive size ?. I recently posted a teaser, took me maybe a day or two to get that up and running from scratch without really knowing anything about MIDI. While I’d love to brag about this achievement, […]

Choosing Display Option for Hybrid Pedal

As part of my Hybrid Pedal project in this step I’ll try out a few different display options. I got an application development board from Pimoroni crowd, and couple of LED matrices and LCD display breakout boards. If you want to keep an eye on the progress I’m making, be sure to subscribe to the […]

Getting Started with Raspberry Pi Pico and MicroPython

I started my Hybrid Pedal project. This is the very first step in the process: preparing my machine to do Raspberry Pi Pico programming in MicroPython. The original guides use mostly Linux and IDEs that I’m not familiar with. Since I am using Windows, I decided to prepare a short video on how to set […]
