DIY Project: Hobbyist Conjures 3D Printed Electronic Wind Instrument – Supports MIDI Protocol

French music and computer enthusiast Xavier Dumont developed a fine wind instrument. The electronic wind instrument is not a new invention, but that does not diminish the value of Dumont’s project.

Dumont’s project on called MIDILodica. It is an electronic wind instrument housed inside a 3D printed case.

The product is played by blowing into it and using the buttons intended for playing. The pressure detection of the blowing and the finger sensor on the bottom of the device bring nuances to the sound, to which you can set, for example, Pitch Bend for stepless height adjustment.

The wind instrument supports the MIDI protocol, so you can play other MIDI devices with it. The instrument itself most obviously does not have sound output, but the sound itself comes from the desired MIDI-supporting source.

In addition, the player has a specially designed circuit board with the buttons in mind. The whole is crowned by a few control buttons and an LCD display.

The device is based on the Arduino Micro motherboard, which is soldered to a circuit board developed by Dumont. In addition, Dumont coded the software for MIDILodica.

The project has its own Its GitHub site for more information, if you are interested in doing the rebellion yourself. There you can also find the 3D files for printing the case. Video below.
