I've updated the USB MIDI page.

https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_midi.html

Hopefully I got all the new stuff in. Please let me know if you see any issues?

Hi, I just tried the USBHost for Midi send and receive works well. Thanks for all you hard work.

Libs removed: NewPing.
Is there a substitute for those wanting a "NewPing" function?
I am in the process of building a 2WD Arduino rover with an Ultrasonic sensor. I'm currently planning to use an Arduino UNO (came with the kit) but could upgrade to a Teensy 3.6 in the future since I have one.

No need for FOMO (fear of missing out). ;)

In Arduino, click Sketch > Include Library > Manage Libraries. Then type "newping" into the "Filter your search..." box. Arduino's library manager will give you version 1.9 (the latest).

Tim changed the license to disallow forks. In conversations on Arduino's issue tracker, he requested distribution via his repository (and presumably Arduino's library manager). Apparently he was suffering quite a lot of extra support burden by several forks people had made.

Even though version 1.8 was GPL license, which allows us to distribute, I removed it from Teensyduino when I saw Tim's conversation.

Thanks, Paul.
I thought that it might have been removed due to some incompatibility with the new Lib, meaning that "NewPing" couldn't be used.

Someday Arduino will probably do more to detect missing libraries and maybe install them automatically, or in a semi-automated way, or at least advise users how install the libs they need alongside the compiler errors. When/if that day comes, and assuming it actually works well, I'll probably remove several of the libs from Teensyduino. Long ago they all needed patches. Some still do, but now that Teensy is pretty well established in the Arduino world, most of the patches have been merged into the libraries. The only point to keeping them in Teensyduino is so programs "just work" rather than giving you a compiler error about missing .h files, and no clear instructions or clickable button to automatically install the missing lib.

Thank you very much for all the great new MIDI stuff!

I've installed this version and got my DAW midi controller (Teensy 3.6) up and running. Receiving SysEx messages (up to 119 bytes) on two cables is working perfectly. I'm using the Serial + MIDI x 4 setting.

Kind regards,

Gerrit

That is a LOT of hard work, Paul. Thank you! I've had a rough time over the last few weeks with a high-pressure project and albeit with a few hiccups(https://forum.pjrc.com/threads/49196-PJRC-store-corrections) the teensy platform hasn't let me down, including some after-sales support with shipping etc. I like the way your products are usually well-documented and supported, make things easy and are of high-quality. Please keep up the good work and thank you(& Robin).

I tried to install it (1.41 as downloaded today) with an installed Arduino "1.9.0-beta", but it didn't want to. What am I doing wrong?

Host: MBP with macOS 10.12.6.

See message #1

Changes made since 1.40-beta4:

Drop support for Arduino 1.9.0-beta34
You need to use the 1.8.5 Arduino release.

OK, thanks.

The download page didn't mention this, just that support for the beta was introduced. I'm using the beta because 1.8.5 loads very slowly. Guess I'll go install that now.

Again, thanks.

I dropped support for Arduino 1.9-beta based on the very negative feedback we heard during 1.41-beta3 (https://forum.pjrc.com/threads/49078-Teensyduino-1-41-Beta-3) and 1.41-beta4 (https://forum.pjrc.com/threads/49172-Teensyduino-1-41-Beta-4).

Turns out 1.9-beta has some pretty bad bugs, including a memory leak that causes lockups on Windows and annoying problems with keyboard focus in the search/replace dialog box.

If you *really* want to try 1.9-beta anyway, you could download the files from that 1.41-beta4 thread. They're still on the server, at least for now. Relatively few changes were made between 1.41-beta4 and 1.41 release. If you want those minor changes, just grab the latest versions of those libraries which were updated.

Indeed I'm still using the 1.90 beta and TD_1.41b4 combo - but thinking of reverting to 1.85 because the slightest code error is hard to find as the pre-processor mangles line numbers and never points close to where I dropped a semi-colon or whatever. And additionally the Ctrl-F focus is really annoying when not using external editor. Both make for interrupted work flow. And the big win of parallel compile is only BIG the first time when the whole core is compiled.

Even 1.8.5 has some bug, too. My program would not build with 1.8.5, but it builds just fine with 1.8.4 and either 1.39, 1.40, or 1.41.
That could be because I'm #including .cpp files, but still.

If you want me or anyone else to take a look, possibly investigating the bug to the point of a useful issue report for Arduino... you've got a show us the complete code so we can click Verify and get the error.

If the code isn't a proprietary secret, please don't be shy. Many bugs in Arduino have been reported due to investigation that started on this forum. The Arduino devs usually do fix bugs pretty well when they get a well written issue report.

Using #include literally? Or placing them in the same sketch directory and having the IDE include them? I've seen/used the 2nd way some - odd the newer IDE doesn't accept the same as the old though perhaps the sketch processor is getting confused if they are altering it - though it sounds like it worked under the 1.90 beta?

Can you make a header of prototypes for them so they look like a library in the sketchbook\libraries folder to better effect?

No, I do the inclusion explicitly. The additional files are in a "Module" directory, so I just have a few "#include Module\[some-name].cpp" in the .ino file. Works fine under 1.8.4... ;)

I'm not fully sure what you're asking for. I have all the function prototypes declared before setup(), otherwise the code wouldn't compile.
The reason I'm doing this strange inclusion because I really hate files longer than a few hundred lines or so. I do know that it's a somewhat (?!) peculiar approach, but as long as it works...

Will look into creating a simple, pared down code that exhibits the same issue. I also have another issue (probably programmer error :( ) that may need another set of eyes.

... not sure how the IDE concept of Library is fully realized - but if ...\'sketchbook'\libraries\"Module" were a folder with the module.h and associated .cpp files in it - Putting #include module.h in the sketch - the IDE could follow through and compile those external files as needed to get the needed code included in the end - without stuffing it into the .ino file where confusion reigns. There are likely rules about names and organization to make that work (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Hacking/Libraries) - but that is what a library is made to provide. And it seems the IDE may need to be restarted to scan that libraries folder to identify target code. Maybe this would be contrary to how you want to maintain the "Module" code - but it is how the IDE can provide it as a generic library ... AFAIK

That could be because I'm #including .cpp files, but still.

When I break up my code in that way, I simply put my cpp code into a .h file and call it from my main application code.

I should note that my ino file is completely empty (no setup, loop functions) and I have an own Main.cpp file where setup, loop and all other main code resides.
This way Arduino can do what it wants with the .ino file, I don't care. Obviously all cpp file are constructed following the common programming rules.
I call then 'external' code via include from main.
when I'm happy with code and need re-usability then I generate private library.

(caveat: I still use 1.83)

I also went the route @WMXZ did for some projects, like my Phoenix In Parts project for hexapods...

Where the main.ino you simply have a local header file with options and your main ino file that just includes everything like:

#define DEFINE_HEX_GLOBALS
#include <Arduino.h>
#include <EEPROM.h>
#include <ax12.h>
#include <BioloidEx.h>

#include "Hex_Cfg.h"

#include <Phoenix.h>
#include <Phoenix_Input_Commander.h>
#include <Phoenix_Driver_AX12.h>
#include <Phoenix_Code.h>

The init and setup functions are in the <Phoenix_Code.h> file... And there are different header files to include depending on which IO device you are using to control the hexapod and which Servo driver you need to drive your servos or the like...

At that time I gave up trying to figure out how to get the necessary configuration information into the different libraries, where I might have several different robots with completely different configurations and did not want to keep different versions of the code...

Add AudioConnection disconnect() (thanks b0rg3rt)


Does this allow for dynamic allocation of audioconnection objects with memory reclamation?!
