Arduino USB-MIDI Theremin

This allows you to control midi music instruments and computer music programs by waving your hand above the sensor. It uses a ultrasonic distance sensor to determine a number between 0 and 127 (the midi range) and sends either a note-on/note-off sequence, or a CC (change control) to control some other parameter of your music. The difference between this and other projects, is that I reprogrammed the Arduino UNO's USB chip to appear as a USB device, allowing it to be plug and play on Windows, Linux and Mac.
