Tutorial Bluetooth MIDI - chibi:bit with GarageBand iOS

BEATNVISION did a tutorial on how you can use the chibi:bit as a Bluetooth MIDI controller for iOS! This looks like a seriously fun way to play. Now we just need to figure out how to get one. Amazon Japan has lots of fun stuff! I couldn't find an American or European distributor for the chibi:bit, but I did find this thing.

Maybe you have better luck tracking the micro:bit since BBC let it expand out of its original mandate? It's a fun little device, including for musicking.

Actually, the micro:bit is available in quite a few places, including those listed here:

But it’s in other stores as well, including this one:

Got my full kit from Pimoroni:

Pretty rad, if you ask me.
Tried a few music-related projects. Will probably do more of that in the future.
