MIDIbox Newbie

MIDIbox Newbie (1/4)



  1. http://vimeo.com/35184249?pg=embed&sec=35184249 Enjoy this live performance from Ici & Lui: a guitar, a trumpet, a sampler, 2 vermona synthesizers and a MIDIbox SEQ!
  2. url=http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_seq_lite.html]MIDIbox SEQ V4 Lite (in short: MBSEQV4L) is a minimalistic but powerful “MIDI sequence looper†which allows to apply various MIDI effects to spice up the original recording. The sequencer never has to be stopped! Even when a new sequence should be entered, loaded or stored from/on a SD Card, MIDI effects are added, etc. It will always run in sync with the internal or externally supplied clock.
  3. http://vimeo.com/27590820?pg=embed&sec=27590820 This is a demo of a MIDIbox based DIY project that emulates both PROG- and PCM-cards for the Korg Wavestation line of synthesizers. These units were produced in the early 90s. While they are not exactly collector’s items, the RAM-, ROM-, and PCM-cards for these are very sought after today. The DIY project demoed here aims at replacing a RAM/ROM (PROG) and a PCM (waveform) card with a little MIDIbox-based circuitry and software that allows to load the corresponding data from SD card. Of course, sound- and waveform-data can also be read from card(s) and saved onto the SD card…
  4. MIDIbox FM Desktop Variant created by Antix: See for details.
  5. sammichFM was designed to be the “no excuses†MIDIbox FM synthesizer kit – i.e. for all those people who want a MIDIbox FM but consider building it with modules too time-consuming, too newbie-unfriendly and/or too hard to design and construct a control surface. sammichFM therefore has the following design constraints/features, which support each other: looks a lot like sammichSID cheap (relative to fully modular MIDIbox FM with “pro-looking†control surface) small DIY newbie friendly minimal control surface single “walwartâ€/AC adapter supply, no bipolar PSU and mains power wiring! sandwich-style†stacked PCB design, no wires! laser-cut 3mm acrylic case by Ponoko, customization possible industry standard 2×20 character LCD, customization possible common control surface parts used, customization possible available as a complete kit, including PCBs, components, case, hardware and new OPL3 chipset! One Core module and one OPL3 module, fully integrated on one PCB with power supply. 4 simultaneous instruments of 6 voice polyphony each, plus drum kit. Each voice is a 4 operator waveform. Each instrument can be routed to one of four audio outputs, via two stereo 1/4″ phono jacks. Five “BankStick†slots, so you can store 5 banks of 128 patches, 32 “Ensembles†and 16 “Drumsets†Minimal control surface with up/down arrow buttons for fast menu scrolling. 2×20 character LCD with support for low-power (25mA) or high-power (250mA) LED backlight. Potential for future upgrade to 32-bit microcontroller via an undocumented “daughterboard†header. More details on this Wiki page, discussions in http://vimeo.com/20854289?pg=embed&sec=20854289 sammichFM Assembly video made by Siempre La Luna (featuring backing track by TK!)
  6. This awesome MIDIbox LC has been created by Alco: Link to Website (more pictures and a Video)
  7. Live jam using a MIDIBox sammichSID, Access Virus, Low-Gain LSDJMC^2, Yamaha RM1x and Mackie CFX12. Controlled my a rather delapidated Evoloution MK-149.
  8. After 350 kits sold (including 556 SIDs), I have finally got to the end of the waiting list. Woot! There will be a final batch of 50 kits in November. I don’t have plans to keep lots of pre-packed kits in stock, therefore, once the last batch is sold, YOU CANT HAZ sammichSID! There are still plenty of kits available in the final batch. Yes, this is some shameless self-promotion to boost sales so I can finish with my routine 50 kit batch and sell off all the PCBs and parts I have in stock. If you’re interested in getting a sammichSID, or want to find out WTF this thing is, all the information is here
  9. Made in Mexico by sineSurfer:

  11. Created by Ander aka. ALEXander aka. Wackazong.
  12. MBSEQ V4 remote controlled by my new Button/Duo-LED matrix prototype. The frontpanel hasn’t been created yet, and it’s difficult to push the mini buttons without button caps. But playing with this toy is already a lot of fun! The BLM firmware is running on a dedicated PIC based core module and communicates with MBSEQ via MIDI. The optimized protocol is fast enough to achieve high refresh rates between 350 fps (if only a single line is changed) and 20 fps (if all 512 LEDs are changed).
