Lickogic tutorial via USB :

In this tutorial we will see how to control computer music software (Ableton, Traktor, Reason ...)
with Midilickuino and Lickogic directly with the Arduino USB port without MIDI interface


You need :
-1x Midilickuino
-1x Arduino
-From 1x to 6x  Lickogic
-Arduino software (version 1.0 or newer)
-MIDI Yoke (Windows only)
-Create a virtual MIDI port (MAC only)
-Hairless MIDI>>Serial
-the sketch Lickogic_USB v1.0
-1x USB cable
-1x computer music software ( Ableton Live Demo for the tutorial)


1-First download and install MIDI Yoke
 



2-Go into the configuration and set MIDI Yoke "Numbers of Ports 2" then restart your
computer. In order not to overload your MIDI application in virtual port.

 



3-Connect Midilickuino with Arduino and Arduino to your computer
 


 
4-Connect Lickogic to Midilickuino BOARD connector
 


 
5-Select using the jumper on the back of the board on which analog input 
Lickogic board is connected.
Warning, if you use multiple Lickogic, they must all have a different input
otherwise they will conflict.
Place the jumper in the order of Lickogic board connection to avoid conflicts.
jumper to 0 for the first, jumper to 1 for the second, jumper 2 to the third ...



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



7-In the sketch set how many Lickogic board are connected in series.
 



8-You can choose the MIDI channel, ControlChange number for all potentiometers
Then save your own application by renaming.
 



9-Set Midlickuino switch S2 to position "PROG"
 



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



11-Once the upload is completed, close the Arduino application and run Hairless.
  A window opens where you must choose on which COM port your Arduino is connected
by selecting "USB Serial Port" (COM3) or other according to your COM port
Select the MIDI Yoke 1 IN
Select the MIDI Yoke 1 OUT
 



12-Then run your computer music software (Ableton Live for the tutorial) and go to
MIDI preferences to choose the MIDI IN Yoke 1 as remote
 



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


 
14-Click on the fader audio track 1 and move a Lickogic board potentiometer
The value of CC is displayed (here 1/22) Channel 1 Control Change 22
Disable the affection MIDI and you can now control Audio 01 volume with Lickogic potentiometer
Have fun !
 
Note: You can not reprogram Arduino until the Hailess application is open.
Close applications in the following order: Computer music software then Hairless otherwise your software
may crash.
