Working with usb-host midi for arduino has been kinda bumpy. It’s hard to get it stable and its also a hassle with different USB ports depending on what Arduino i use. This could make it tedious designing into panels aswell since you’d have to use a OTG cable integrated into the design or something similiar.
So i’ve been looking at this little thing and might order one. It would be nice to just get that part out of the way when making stuff. You can order it pre-coded from “factory” so you don’t have to load the downloadable software onto it, although they say it has a built in bootloader.
