I am currently working on a personal project with the goal to create a MIDI expression controller for my music production. I have the code working on my prototype and am currently designing the PCB layout using EasyEDA.
I now realized that it would be cleaner to mount the Arduino directly to the PCB, which isn't possible with the UNO, so I want to, instead, use a tiny Arduino Pro Micro (which my father gave me) that I can mount directly to the PCB. That cleans up the design and doesn't require a bunch of ribbon cables that connect the components to the Arduino.
With that, all said, I was not able to get my code to work on the Pro Micro. The Pro Micro is not available in the default board selection list, so I tried downloading some additional board libraries, but they didn't work either.
(by the way, I think the Pro Micro that my dad gave me is a Chinese knock-off – just in case that has an impact on what is required to make it work)
Can anyone help me out here?
