Making machines play MIDI tunes !

Post by Denford Admin » Fri 03 Jul , 2009 14:06 pm

Inspired by Paul Bray's Waltzing Matilda Denford machine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uhe0pewoA04
I've written a rough and ready program that will read in MIDI files and create G-code to play the tune on a stepper machine (in my spare time of course :!: )

Here are a couple of g-code tunes I guess anyone could try out (they're in absolute values and only move the X axis back and forth)
(The Wild Rover is my favourite)

Enjoy :lolol:

Looks like you'll need a lot of X travel: from X+133.577 to X-635.230
It'll fit on a Router 6600

The shorter version will move from X+133.577 to X-285.991 which will fit onto a Router 2600
