Now for the music. I've worked with FL Studios for years, finally decided to switch over to Ableton and i LOVE IT. I have a keyboard that my friend gave me because he doesn't use anymore and it has midi in/out on it so i use that in ableton as a midi keyboard. I really want to get the Akai APC20 and Akai MPK25, but i am very tight on money and cant either atm. Im under 18, no job, no way to really make money.
I've learned how to make PCB, altho i've nvr attempted it yet because i have no design to put on the board. I really would like to make a midi controller and hopefully use a homemade PCB to save some money.
Does anyone have some advice on a good PCB design i can put onto my PCBoard that will work as MIDI controller. I also have a pinpoint soldering gun and lots of tools and drills of my dads i can use. Im not looking to make anything fancy as my first project but eventually i want to be able to make something cool like Anders amazing controller. I know how to print out the PCB designs but dont really know what anything is and how to use it or how to make my own design because i dont know what any of the stuff on a PCB is. If anyone has any advice on at all on anything in this area, it would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I have 2 extra keyboards (a USB and a PS/2) and a logitech gamepad which I dont care about and dont mind using there PCB, but id honestly perfer to make my own PCB.
Thanks in Advanced!
