MIDILodica - Open Source 3D Printed Breath Controller

DIY project to build yourself   22-May-23

Wind or breath controllers are very much in the minority when compared to standard keyboards, knob/fader arrangements and button-based MIDI controllers. If you have a 3D printer and source the parts listed, you can now go about making your own MIDI wind controller - the MIDILodica! You'll find a great overview in the video, along with some build instructions - available in detail on Github here. More info form youtube: 

The MIDILodica is a breath-controlled, 3D printed, open-source MIDI device that features a pressure sensor, 35 reassignable note buttons, a softpot strip potentiometer, full menu navigation with a 320x172 screen, and underside button for additional MIDI and octave manipulation. This repository contains all the files needed to 3D print and manufacture the MIDILodica.

To accomplish this project, you will need:

  •  Basic knowledge of the Arduino IDE.
  •  Basic knowledge of and equipment for soldering.
  •  Access to a 3D printer.
  •  All the electronic parts listed below.
