Im working on a project that is essentially a giant knob that controls various parameters on my PC. Specifically in my DAW. I’d like to use a rotary encoder that my PC essentially sees as a mouse wheel so when I mouse over a specific parameter I can make an adjustment. I believe thats the best way as MIDI data works great but I would have to manually teach the software what the controller is outputting for each parameter.
I was wondering what you all would recommend for a board and how you would go about coding that idea. From some research I would think Id want the Leonardo as it has USB built in.
The build idea would be like this:
unless there are better suggestions for an encoder (looking for the smoothest and most accurate) and setup. Im all ears.
