Is it difficult to complete Nanocontrol with electronic parts to be used with its functions, but without using an USB-Hub? It would be nice to use a midi- keyboard, connected its Midi-In with an DIY-Midi-Out of Nanocontrol, to use functionality of Nanocontrol without USB-data-through and without need of an USB-hub. Could it be possible to send data from Nanocontrol midi-formatted? Hi,
thanks for that informations.

It's much more then starting point. I believe the subject would be popular so it's good idea to move discussion to some forum. I'm just starting to know a little bit more about programming AVR. At this point i don't know - should i find some development kit for trying funny things or i can do it with my nano? Oooh! It’s much more then starting point.

They're not totally ready for prime-time, so to speak, but I put what I've got so far here: http://www.openmusiclabs.com/files/korgNano These are the things I made for myself while I was working, but I have had to put the project to the back burner while I'm super busy with another project at my day-job. There are three pdfs, one schematic, one pinout, and one labeled picture of the isp connector that I made to keep things straight for myself. The code in the zip file is an AVR Studio project folder which is made from code that I found on the net (after much much searching!) that works well with the specific usb chip that is on the board I have. I would recommend checking out AVR Freaks (the website) and poking around a little they have a lot of helpful people there. I also recommend googling 'getting started with avr' or something like that, the avr 8 bit processors are a big family with a lot in common, so learning a little bit will take you a long way. Doing usb and midi is a complicated beginning project, but if you work your way up to it you ought to be able to do it. A lot of the hard work is done, but there still remains to set up functions to control the hardware and bring in the analog data from the rest of the board. I'll set up a thread in the forum so we can put this discussion somewhere a little more public. Hi Alex!

I'm a musician - and i use nanoKontrol to control my sound plugins in realtime. So i extremely need some feedback to nano. I have a little expirience in programming microcontrolers (not Atmega) and i ready to spend some time for implementing my idea. But i need some starting point. May be you have some schematics, disassemled codes, links for programming ATMEGA32... Thanks anyway. You give me the chance to realize my ideas) Hi, again!

It is about as difficult as programming any other microcontroller, it takes time and effort, but is very rewarding, in my opinion!

Thanks for good information. It's very interesting for me. Is it difficult to reprogramm NanoKontrol to make it possible to recieve Midi messages and toggle its leds? Hi! Thanks for good information.
