Dilicktal tutorial :

In this tutorial we will see how to control computer music software (Ableton, Traktor, Reason ...) with
Midilickuino and Dilicktal.
We will assign Dilicktal board buttons to computer music software to control via MIDI.


You need:
-1x Midilickuino
-1x Arduino
-from 1x to 8x  Dilicktal
-Arduino software (version 1.0 or newer)
-le sketch Dilicktal_Midi v1.0
-1x USB cable
-1x MIDI cable
-1x Computer music software ( Ableton Live Demo for the tutorial)


1-Start by connecting Midilickuino with Arduino and Arduino to your computer

 



2-Connect Dilicktal to Midilickuino BOARD connector
 

 


3-Connect Midilickuino MIDI OUT to your MIDI interface MIDI IN
(if you do not have a MIDI interface, another tutorial shows how to communicate directly via
  Arduino USB port: USB Dilicktal tutorial)
 

 


4-Open the sketch Dilicktal_Midi v1.0 within the Arduino software (this sketch is given as
an example, it can be improved, edit and optimize)

 

 


5-In the sketch set how many Dilicktal board are connected in series.
 

 


6-You can choose the MIDI channel, ControlChange number for all buttons
The button mode is an alternative way.
The first press, it sends ON and remains ON (LED will light)
  until the second he sends OFF (LED turns off)
Then save your own application by renaming.

 

 

 


7-Set Midlickuino switch S2 to position "PROG"

 



8-Start the upload by clicking on the arrow in the top left
 



9-Then run your copmputer music software (Ableton Live for tutorial) and go in the MIDI Preferences
  to choose the MIDI IN port on which you have connected the Midilickuino MIDI OUT port.

 



10-Press the MIDI button at the top right to assign buttons to Ableton
(mode of affection varies the software, you learn the manual
your software)

 



11-Click on the parameter you want to assign (here MUTE audio track 01).
Press the Dilicktal button you want to assign to the MUTE
(here the first button in the first Dilicktal board).
You see the value of the channel and assign CC: 1/20
Disable the affection MIDI and you can now control MUTE function with Dilicktal button
