The MIDI Thing is a highly portable MIDI looper, designed to loop whatever you play into it back out through the output. This works on all 16 MIDI channels for many different MIDI phrases being sent off all over the place.
One of the more interesting aspects to the design is how it is controlled. You've only got 2 buttons on device, so the majority of the controls are handled via MIDI Notes.
The MIDI Thing get its instructions from what ever keyboard controller is being used for MIDI input. We thought that would make sense as you've already got a keyboard in front of you and you wouldn't want to have to navigate through lots of menus on a tiny box.
