I am building an FPGA-based Synth with a DIN MIDI input connenctor. So far I developed the DDS, mixer and MIDI serial interface. I am preparing a V2 of the synth and I would like to use a USB port instead of the DIN connector. This because all the main portable keyboards use USB. I dont want to increase the complexity of the design and I was wondering if I could use a simple FTDI USBtoUART converter in order to get the raw MIDI data. Do you think If I use one of the chip showed here http://www.ftdichip.com/USB.html, will a get the MIDI data straight away?
Thank you in advance,
