DSP Synthesizers: MIDIfying the Korg Monotron

via DSP Synthesizers

"This project adds USB-MIDI control to the Korg Monotron synthesizer.

A Trinket is installed inside with a micro-USB connector at the back.

A custom version of the uMIDI2CV is flashed on the Trinket.

With USB plugged in the Monotron shows up as a MIDI device on the computer/phone/tablet
