Code

CurieUsbMidiBridge.ino

Use with Arduino 101 + Hobbytronics USB HOST-MIDI

nRF52MidiWireMaster.ino

Upload to nRF52 breakout, and upload UsbMidiWireSlave.ino (see below) to the Arduino that is connected to the USB MIDI instrument.

BeanMidiWireMaster.ino

Upload to Bean+ and upload UsbMidiWireSlave.ino (below) to the Arduino that is connected to the USB MIDI instrument.

UsbMidiWireSlave.ino

Upload to Arduino ADK (or Arduino Uno + USB Host Shield). Reads MIDI messages from the USB MIDI instrument and writes them to the Wire (I2C) master.
