  • Could you share the a view only version of your spreadsheet?

  • Does this include an IR led, or does that need to be added?

  • your code works great, thanks microtherion. changing pins 4 and 8 on the original sketches didn’t work, but your Real Time MIDI code does. I’ll have to look closer at how it works.

  • Thanks Micro, don’t know how I missed your previous post. Tech support helped me with figuring that out, but I’m not getting any sound. Is there something I missed to get this working?

    I’m using a modified version of the music shield sketch based on error messages the IDE gave me. Pin 4 is set to OUTPUT and HIGH. I changed NewSoftSerial to SoftwareSerial and mySerial.print(cmd,byte) to mySerial.print((byte)cmd)

    here’s a copy of the code.

  • Since the shield uses the VS1053 chip can it also be used as a synthesizer like the Music Instrument Shield? I tried some of Music Instrument example, but no success
