A bedside reader is a book or magazine one reads before going to sleep. Usually which outlines a project like building boat or a house, or other complex thing (like a real or model engine or clock.)
I have an old clock repair book which states that these are typically books of plans and projects that one dreams of doing. Something one reads as one falls a sleep imagining performing the step of each task in order ...
I have a lot of MIDI code. Most of which is written in ASM. This uses the MIDI current loop hardware.
Now I am wanting to do more with USB MIDI and do away with the bulky and slow current loop optical transceivers. To this effect I have used commercial MIDI/USB bridges or FTDI serial/MIDI bridge.
LUFA on the other hand promises MIDI HID. Yet there are no getting started or bedside reader tutorials I can find. The auto generated documentation is not of any use. I can read the code if needed to find the API interface. I did download LUFA and it is ginormous where as I only want the MIDI stuff. This is not conducive to short term study between projects or on the side.
Is there a simple cetting started tutorial, which does not spend 99 percent of it's time teaching C make files and libraries?
Simple instructions that tells how to set up a project (preferably in studio 4) without a make file as a pure IDE project? Something like the old Heathkit and Popular mechanics magazines projects I learned from initially? Something I can download as a PDF onto my phone to read and study while traveling and during the commercial breaks of life? That can be digested in 5 to 10 minute chunks?
I am grudgingly using more and more C programming (to communicate with the file system on SD cards.) On the other hand I tend to think in ASM, which means I do not want anything between me and my bits that I want to twiddle.
