I understand that some arduinos are capable of presenting themselves as a USB HID device to a PC.
I would like to use one to build a custom input controller that lets me read maybe 8 or so turn knobs that can infinitely turn left and right.
I am new to Arduino, but have cross-compiled avr binaries before.
Which arduino would be a good choice for this? And any additional parts that would help?
The end product would look like a MIDI mix panel, but it shouldn’t talk MIDI, just USB HID (to a linux PC.)
Note: there is an expensive, and out of stock, device that is similar to what I have in mind called MIDI Fighter Twister, pictured below, to get an idea.
