Note! We have received some concern about connecting "directly" from the Arduino to the MIDI in port of a HW synth. Although we have done this successfully with several different HW setups, note that LMP does not take any responsibility for any catastrophic results of this tutorial. In the next part of this tutorial, "Arduino and MIDI in", we will introduce the optocoupler.
