USBMIDI

Mbed OS 2 and Mbed OS 5

This is the handbook for Mbed OS 2. If you’re working with Mbed OS 5, please see the Mbed OS 5 documentation.

The USBMIDI interface can be used to send and receive MIDI messages over USB using the standard USB-MIDI protocol.

Using this library, you can do things like send MIDI messages to a computer (such as to record in a sequencer, or trigger a software synthesiser) and receive messages from a computer (such as actuate things based on MIDI events)

The USB connector should be attached to

  • p31 (D+), p32 (D-) and GND for the LPC1768 and the LPC11U24
  • The on-board USB connector of the FRDM-KL25Z
