    MIDIbox Newbie
  1. SDCard Problem

    Hello, more on this topic :   first, last ng version in conjunction with the new beta version of mios studio seems to have corrected some issues I had: my midibox is now able to handle conditional events (with exact same ngc file used without modifications).   Now: here is the simple TEST.NGC file I was trying to get working (and which works now as it should): RESET_HW LCD "%C" ENC n=1 sr=1 pins=0:1 type=detented2 EVENT_BUTTON id=5 type=meta meta=UpdateLcd range=0:1 button_mode=Toggle lcd_pos=1:1:1 label="Mode #%d" EVENT_ENC id=1 if_equal=button:5:0 type=CC cc=16 lcd_pos=1:1:2 label="Enc %3d" now, in order to make it my default config when powering my midibox, I type the folowing in the command line of mios studio:   load test   save default   then, when I power cycle my midibox, I get a "READY" message at power on (like if "factory default" DEFAULT.NGC was loaded again". BUT: operating button #5 and encoder #1 make the unit working like it should in my TEST example. here is then how my DEFAULT.NGC looks like : # Reset to default RESET_HW # LCD message after load LCD "%C@(1:1:1)READY." # EVENTs EVENT_BUTTON id= 5 type=Meta meta=UpdateLcd range= 0:1 offset= 0 ports=1000100000001000 button_mode=Toggle lcd_pos=1:1:1 label="Mode #%d" EVENT_ENC id= 1 if_equal=BUTTON:5:0 type=CC chn= 1 cc= 16 range= 0:127 offset= 0 ports=1000100000001000 lcd_pos=1:1:2 label="Enc %3d" #

Isn't the new ngc file supposed to replace the former one when I save it under "default" name ? Am I missing something ?   anyway, this is now way more manageable, and VERY BIG THANKS to you, TK, for such a powerful and inspiring tool ! I have to think to "buy TK a beer" or several...   Laurent.
  2. SDCard Problem

    Just for more infos, on my side about this issue : on my first laptop (Dell D630, WinXP 32 SP2) I basically have the problems described by Duggle . -Barely no way to load any "big" NGC file in the file broser like default.ngc (the file opens in the editor once over 20 times) loading stays stuck at 98-99%. With a powered hub, it gets even worst, as it barely loads 6/7% of any file before it says "no response from mios32 core during reading operation".   -when testing config files (copy/paste of the "getting started" examples from user manual) nothing involving banks works properly : bank is allways 0 in the debug window when pushing the bank select buttons.   -The weirdest, With simple example files like "hello.ngc" : let's say I've got two files "hello1.ngc" and "hello2.ngc" with two different text strings just to differenciate them. I can manage to do :   load hello1 save hello2 and it works as it should. but after that, sometimes, when loading "hello2.ngc" in the editor, I get the surprise that the content of default.ngc has overwritten the original content of the file ! I've checked many times: it's not a mistake on my side...   load hello2 save default doesn't work. It says that default.ngc is saved but when loading it, it simply loads the original default file.   after that, sometimes, when loading "hello2.ngc" in the editor, I get the surprise that the content of default.ngc has overwritten the original content of the file ! I've checked many times: it's not a mistake on my side...   More revelant (maybe) : I just changed the "READY" message at startup in the default.ngc for "HELLO", just for testing purpose. So, when power cycling the NG, it says "HELLO", and not "READY". now, imagine me doing the dance of the victory on my couch, because it works ! So, lets go back to the "rotate me!" experiment on the getting started page, click, click, in my hello.ngc config, no problems. So, encoders are basically working, now let's load the default.ngc file again... Wich says "READY" instead of "HELLO"!!!!!!!  from what I understand, the NG just acted as if there wasn't any default file on the SDcard and recreated one new, erasing the previous one with "HELLO" as starting message.   By the way, on my other laptop, (an almost dead Dell D620, with no cpu cooling, very slow, that barely works 15 minutes before it freezes completly, with WinXP 32 SP1) I don't have any of those issues, file editing, bank creation, loading, saving, everything, so far, from what I can check in less than 15 minutes, works flawlessly... too bad it olny last so little time on a laptop with yoghurt and chocolate all over the screen and keyboard, so many missing keys, and a not working trackpad and buttons : My only midibox compatible computer is my 2 years old daughter's toy . Damn...   Laurent.  
  3. Hi, a little hotness is normal depending on how much power they have to dissipate. You might want to heatsink your regulators to correct this. refer to chips datasheet for it. Just remember you'll need an insulator for your lm317 because back of the chip is V out. Laurent.
  4. Audioengine Controller

    Hi, I guess you will mount your fader in a box at the end. with a grounded metal top panel, you will ground you fader's body by simple contact with it or with the help of the mounting screw. If you don't have a metal top panel, just pinch a piece of wire or a small ground lug between the panel and the fader at one of the mounting end. Regards, Laurent.
  5. Midibox LC strap down

    Hi, I'm a total newby here as well. But as I'm also interested about how the MBLC works, I will try to help here from what I understood: The DAW sends feedback to the mblc when either rec/play/... are engaged, in the form of a status led witch is wired as shown here: link You could then wire a relay instead of the wanted led as shown here : link There might be other simpler(?) ways to do that but that one should work for someone with no programing skills (like me) and very limited knowlegdge about midi implementation and protocole.
