Mini OONTZ – 3D Printed MIDI Controller

August 3, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized 

In this project we’re building a diy midi controller that works with ios devices and analog synths. Say hello to OONTZ, the open source button grid controller based on the adafruit trellis. The mini OONTZ is a 3d printed case housing one trellis and 4 potentiometers ideal for a 16 button drum pad. OONTZ works with any MIDI software and hardware. No more virtual midi or serial to MIDI stuff, oontz is legit USB MIDI.

DIY MIDI Controller
Say hello to OONTZ, the open source button grid controller based on the Adafruit Trellis button platform.

The mini OONTZ is a 3d printed case housing one trellis and 4 potentiometers ideal for a 16 button drum pad. In this project we’re building a diy midi controller that works with ios devices and analog synths.

OONTZ works with any MIDI software and hardware. No more virtual midi or serial to MIDI stuff, oontz is legit USB MIDI.”
Adafruit Trellis
This PCB is specially made to match the Adafruit 4×4 elastomer keypad. Each Trellis PCB has 4×4 pads and 4×4 matching spots for 3mm LEDs. The circuitry on-board handles the background key-presses and LED lighting for the 4×4 tile. However, it does not have any microcontroller or other ‘brains’ – an Arduino (or similar microcontroller) is required to control the Trellis to read the keypress data and let it know when to light up LEDs as desired.
