I'm literally as green of a noob as I can be at this moment. Been watching a ton of tuts as I plan my project, but can't seem to find anything about settings being uploaded from an external source, and then stored on the arduino.
I want to create a board with multiple buttons. I want these buttons to then transmit MIDI PC/CC based on customizable settings uploaded via a computer. So, I'll create an app that can "create" the settings (json?) for each button. Ideally, I'd just connect the board, create the settings, then upload it to the device.
I've been reading about storing things like this in EEPROM, but that has a limited life span (which scares me). So, do I store these variables in EEPROM, or do I just compile and upload the app that has the new values in the variables?
I'm just looking for a possible direction and links for research.
Thanks in advance.
