The connections have been made and some simple software has been written to map keys to notes. There are some issues that need to be sorted like transpose while pressing keys etc. The concept works! It is a very nice and cheap way to experiment with such a keyboard.
It feels a little flimsy though, pressing buttons against an unsupported perfboard so the top priority now is to find a case that will make the keyboard right at home! I will add some knobs too. There is much (programming) space for them
So, stay tuned for a first video demo as soon as possible. The only thing I need right now, is a little practice!
