Default Midi-izing an acoustic marimba

A friend of mine is building me a 3 octave marimba. He will be installing piezos on each key. How's the best way to send midi out....that includes the specific note and velocity. I'm new at this.
thanks so much for any suggestions or past experiences with this. I will play the marimba and want to be able to trigger midi modules or send that info to my DAW (Cakewalk Sonar)

Hi Junglechuck, welcome to the forum.

One limitation of the MIDI CPU is that velocity sensitivity is not supported by the MIDI CPU. For now, a commercial "drum brain" for e-drums might be the best choice.

Getting started with some note output experiments will be pretty easy using the MIDI CPU. Since the MIDI CPU accepts logic input and sends MIDI notes by "factory default", you can simply wire things up and go.

Here is a wiring method for piezo triggers that I have personally tested using the MIDI CPU:

For a broader discussion of piezo sensor instruments, see this thread:

Hope this helps to get you started.
