I want to generate music/sounds for a video game I am making with my son (using an Arduino Mega and a 240x320 LCD graphical display). I have a basic understanding of the MIDI protocol. I've been a computer programmer for over 30 years. I read the MIDI implementation in the DSP-G1 manual, but I don't understand how to go from this to sending the right signals from the dev board to the chip pins.
Everything I find is about connecting a physical MIDI device. Can anyone possibly provide or point me to information on how to control the DSP-G1 programmatically/electronically? I think I need some hardware or software to serialize MIDI protocol bytes into a sequence of voltage changes, but all my searching leads me to info about a physical device.
