MIDI note player by Tom Igoe

This sketch shows how to use the serial transmit pin (pin 33) to send MIDI note data. If this circuit is connected to a MIDI synth, it will play the notes F#-0 (0x1E) to F#-5 (0x5A) in sequence. The circuit: digital pin 33 connected to MIDI jack pin 5 MIDI jack pin 2 connected to ground MIDI jack pin 4 connected to +5V through 220-ohm resistor Attach a MIDI cable to the jack, then to a MIDI synth, and play music. http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/MIDI

void setup() {
  // Set MIDI baud rate:

void loop() {
  // play notes from F#-0 (0x1E) to F#-5 (0x5A):
  for (int note = 0x1E; note < 0x5A; note ++) {
    //Note on channel 1 (0x90), some note value (note), middle velocity (0x45):
    noteOn(0x90, note, 0x45);
    //Note on channel 1 (0x90), some note value (note), silent velocity (0x00):
    noteOn(0x90, note, 0x00);   

//  plays a MIDI note.  Doesn't check to see that
//  cmd is greater than 127, or that data values are  less than 127:
void noteOn(int cmd, int pitch, int velocity) {
  Serial.print(cmd, BYTE);
  Serial.print(pitch, BYTE);
  Serial.print(velocity, BYTE);
