diy bluetooth midi module

this was a personal project utilising the official Tangible Waves diy kit. i wanted to build a simple module capable of receiving 4 channels of midi over bluetooth, and outputting 4x gates and 4x cv.

i discovered the TinyS3 mcu and realised it had the required capabilities in a very small form factor.

to get accurate cv i paired it with this i2c quad DAC from adafruit: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-mcp4728-i2c-quad-dac

and to raise the gate voltages from 3.3v to 5v i just about squeezed in this quad level-shifter.

the ultimate goal was to send multiple channels of midi from software such as the fantastic orca by hundredrabbits and also the multitude of interesting ipad sequencers out there.
