  1. JU60

    Salut Bruno ! Yes you'r right, that also my conclusion since I post this But I personally don't like the idea to swap the MCU I will probably go for the CHD solution Hooked at a midibox core (via J11) to have USB midi and 16 ch Ain/Aout (J19) to read/write analog pot and automate all parameters If only I have time and code skill, I'll design a full midibox HW and SW solution for Juno60 retrofit...

  2. MIDI Implemtation for EUCON

    Hello EUCON is proprietary and AVID (who buy it from Euphonix) don't let anyone manufacturing compatible HW controller. Even industry big name that offer digitally controlled desk with at least five 0 on the bill can't implement eucon... IIRC the only access is for soft dev that want to implement the protocol for they app, DAW or plugins (to be controlled by HW) I suppose you need a confirmed company to have access to SDK, and sign restrictive NDA. So my suggestion is... forget it Best Zam    
  3. daisy chain USB Midibox control surfaces

    Hello I'm here I use direct midi uart coupling between core at 10x speed, not optocoupler. For this you need: Same PSU for all core (my 3 core are in a 3U rack) Short wire between core J11 connectors Routing configuration at "master" core where midi i/o (to/from slave) go to USB midi 2 to 4   My protocol emulation is MCU   Now for your specific configuration, If cubase only allow 1 HUI device to be configured, I suspect all your controllers will be mirrored, whatever chaining/connection between controllers you use... Are you sure you can't use MCU protocol which usually allow 4 units (1master+3 extanders) to be configured in most DAW   Best Zam   ps @Antichambre any news about MCAN ?
  4. Upcoming MBHP_MF_NG module

    Hello   "Stall current" is the current consumption  when the motor is "lock", meaning want to move but can't, like mechanical stop end when you still ask him to move further. In short this is the max current the motor can ask. To move (without constraints) the motor should ask less that that... Your issue is somewhere else Best Zam
  5. Hello We can't call a resistor a decoupling device but you use " so it's ok. In this case I think it's a small voltage drop to ensure Vref stay below VDD, to avoid error at full scale, as I nether won't call 10ohm resistor a current limiting for Vref input with half an amp at 5V... If you use separate regulation you don't need this resistor. Best Zam
  6. Hi Tago I won't call someone who ask questions, trying to learn, as experimenting things an idiot ! Best Zam
  7. Hello Vref is your ref analog voltage, you need to provide the pot with the same voltage. Vref is the 100% value for analog inputs whatever voltage you feed.   Please check again the AINSER64, Vref connect to ADC as J6 to 13 for pots (and 4051 multiplexed analog switches)   Best Zam
  8. I'll say try both... it's cheap ! Best Zam
  9. Assign J5a/b core ports in .NGC

    You can mix IN/OUT at J10, but have to choose for a full row, a and b So if you want to keep spare for future SCS (at J10a) it's not an option... I'm sure someone can help you better than me for software side and J5 implementation Best Zam    
  10. Assign J5a/b core ports in .NGC

    Hey I can't help for J5 handle at lower level. Side question, did you already use J10 ? Best Zam
  11. Assign J5a/b core ports in .NGC

    Hello Tago Yes J5 ports are available at .NGC, as analogue input, EVENT_AIN with "ain_mode=switch" flag you can hook a button on it You have to enable the input pins with: Example: # AIN hardware AIN enable_mask=110000 will enable the J5A.A0 and J5A.A1 inputs. To connect LED I suppose you have to go deeper in mios32. If you use toggle switch (and not tact switch) you can solve this with a dual pole version, one for the AIN and one for a LED directly powered by the switch. Best Zam
  12. The whole datasheet define it more or less like a zener, so I suppose there is no voltage drop, but a "voltage limiter" behaviour. Just my guess, but you better try a 4.1 version (4.096V) because if your 5VDD go down below 5V for any reason, your "precision zener" at 5.000V will follow. With the 4.1V version you have 20% margin before issue at analoge Vref. Best Zam  
  13. I mean 1mV per bit or 1.25mV per bit (according to different Vref, 4 or 5V) won't change that much if you have a regulator that clean the supply below or around mV noise/ripple, you'll still have jitter at 12bit but clean at 11bit or lower, which is way better than jittery 7bit for the OP ! Best Zam
  14. Hello Use the digital 5V close to the MCP3208 (coming from J19) and don't forget to use the same Vref for your pots or faders, be careful about load as this regulators don't offer that much mA at output (don't drive anything but ADC and pots)   Have a look at MCP3208 datasheet page 19 for design notes and coupling with the precision regulator Best Zam
  15. Hello Dedicated regulator for AINSER8 Vref help a lot... Unfortunately it will be difficult to regulate 5V from a 5V USB power (usual voltage drop at regulator) With the proper design it's possible to run the AINSER8 at 11bit without jitter and 12bit low jitter. As already mentioned, 0V path is also a key to achieve this result. Best Zam
