The first step in making the new hardware work was stripping out unnecessary code and repurposing it so the new controls would act as expected. In the old logic, there were many different controls, but here only a few things are directly controlled by the user.

Two potentiometers were similar to the controls in the original code and the bare minimum for getting enjoyable output. In the video below, the device can only output a single instrument, a Grand Piano, and change the velocity (volume) and tempo (speed). Even though this is basic, getting a firm starting point is a significant step. While writing this blog, the output from the device is playing in the background.
