MIDI – experiments on a digital orchestra…

This post is going to mark a paradigm shift in my blogging. Most of my earlier posts seem to deviate from the point I try to make. I’m not promising all my posts will be to the point from now, but you can certainly expect to get a higher content to crap ratio. In this edition let’s discuss about MIDI.

Well, there is not much about it really. MIDI is a protocol used to for digital music instruments to communicate with each other and it’s host. It is a beautifully thought out system that works by transmitting events on a music instrument as serial commands. Professionally well done instruments can allow many instruments to be connected in a daisy-chain like cascade.

Morse Code generator using Arduino…

If you’re reading this, it is most probably because I referred you here. The important thing, however,  is we’re here to learn something new, or at most, upgrade your knowledge, or if you’ve done this before, provide me some useful critique. We’ll be discussing how I built a Morse Code generator.

This blog will mainly feature my work with developer electronics and most forms of computing. As most of you know, I’m currently doing BE in Mechatronics at MIT, Manipal. People would generally expect me to incline more toward the mechanical side of the branch, but conformity is just not my way. I have displayed an exceptional interest in Electronics and Electricals as well as Communication – electronic communication, mind you; I do seem to have trouble in real life communication. Having said that, let us get to what I’m going to discuss here as of now – my work with electronics.

Windows 7 – the feature that caught my eye…

Windows 7, the most awesome OS till date, was released unto manufacturing on October 22nd, 2009. About 17 percent of the people in the world were already using it within a month of its release. ‘Windows 7 definitely is a great improvement over Windows Vista’, but in saying this I’m actually paraphrasing the millions who love this OS. So, does that mean I don’t like Windows 7?

Google hacks – spend least possible time on Google…

I know! I know! Reading blogs totally suck, but I guess I could make it work. In this edition, we’re talking about Google.

Well, I shouldn’t have generalised it. Reading my blog sucks. Of course, what was I thinking? How could knowing something extra about computers ever help anybody?
