Disclaimer. I am not a software engineer, i have a degree in medicine, programming is an old hobby.
back in 2012when i was a poor student ii bought myself an Axe Fx II, it literally cost me everything. i had no money for foot controller. So i decided to build it myself. At this time i didn’t know anything about arduino. few months later i had my first prototype.
And in a month later it was inside a shoe box
Then with a working screen
Then in a metal box
And the latest and the tastiest - with reverceenginered stickers
The point of this story is to show that even with minimal knowledge i was able to build this kind of thing from scratch. 0 lines of code were used from different projects. If you’ll find the right person for writing the app -i am sure that the first beta could be done in less than a week.
