I'm thinking of buying a Cantini MIDI violin. The person from electricviolinshop.com says I would need to hook it up to a MIDI-controller/synth like the Roland GR-55 and then into my computer to get useable MIDI data.
Has anyone done anything like this? I want to know how the data would be detected in Pure Data. Would each string have its own channel # when using [notein]?
Also, [notein]'s velocity value is the amplitude, right? So it would change depending on the strength of the string's vibration, right?
