  1. Hello Obviously you have access to the core and NG files, so the first step seem fine. What say the debug mode ? edit: I just read again your post... you say your .NGC is called "Hello" without specific "load" command (you'll see later) MBNG at start-up ONLY load config files called DEFAULT.NGC and DEFAULT.NGR just rename your .NGC Best Zam
  2. Hello Can't say for MIDIO128... but for MB_NG it's in the .ngc parameter file. Best Zam
  3. Hello Thomas Look promising ! Best Zam
  4. It was both, EMI not acceptable regarding technical performance I requested then, with that particularity that I have low level audio signal just across the digital circuit, which is not a question/issue for 99% of pple using MF_NG. As acoustic noise that can't match the quality standard at user side I was searching for, in a quiet as possible "high-end" control room I can't work with a bunch of printer like sound, unfortunately a fader automation is not a tool that you can put in the machine room In a way both noises are linked.

  5. Hey Thomas As you notice I take another route long time ago, I'm not able to help you much about PWM handling I think I publish all my tries around PWM by that time, and there is probably other options to test today, including increasing frequency of the PWM (over audio range). IIRC mios8 on the pic can't do this ? Do you know how is handled the motor in the D-com ? Best Zam
  6. Hello I'm not sure you do wrong, this is probably intrinsically related to PWM driver Best Zam

    Nice catch ! Whit this I think we can definitely say this is a digital encoder implementation around a P&G "blank" fader The fader is just use as mechanical device to translate rotary to linear actuation We have here a 256 steps/turn version. Can't say how many steps it translate to the linear movement, this is defined by pulleys/axis diameter ratio, but we can expect more than one motor turn for a fader full travel. Best Zam

    Hello 6 wire to the motor...should be a step/rotary counter... The OP just say there is no resistive element in the fader, and you can see there is no wire going to the fader ! You won't find any taper resistance here nor touch sens. This is probably a rotary encoder/counter technology embeded in the motor Stagetec do broadcast console, I suppose there is no automation on it but recall and fader flip function where the encoder is enough to send fader at visual position (this is a remote) As there is probably a calibration routine at startup with such adv

  10. Hello AINSER modules have pinrange option which is basically used to add dead band at start and end of a pot. It can be considered as a threshold if you set value high. MAP definitions can also be used to achieve threshold functions. There is sensor mode too, but not used to it, so you have to look by yourself Best
  11. Hello Micha To understand the whole mechanism we need to know what do section 1 as you call it at the end of the section 2... Also your sender 4043 have key definition which is not relevant due to type=meta What about the buttons that select banks ? Do they forward to receiver 4042/4043 ? Best Zam
  12. Hello Baudrate setting is a mios32_uart.h But you obviously need to change this at both side of the wire, so won't work if you have a hardware synth where you can't change this setting. (31250 is a midi compliance) Only useful if you hook two midibox devices and you want to gain some data speed/density Have you try to change optocoupler ? I have vague memory to read around some issue with. But don't remember the context. I also notice timeout error in my early mios experimentations when the core is really busy. like lot of data IO stream, which can b
  13. Hello Micha Not a direct answer, but some observation at my side. I'm used to this time out message when in the past I play around with midi baudrate speed (for multicore direct connection in a project) what is sure is you need same RX/TX speed at both side of the midi wire, I suppose that's not your issue, but I also notice that wire length can have impact, in other hand the TX/RX quality and potential data lose. In your case I suppose you have optocoupler, investigating that side of hardware and data integrity might be an option. Best Zam
  14. Hello You can load files with LOAD command in .NGR And you can call the section with load command via an event in .NGC (meta=runsection) which can be a button. Now if you use let say an encoder with value change or a radiogroup button you can define a value to a dummy LED (NGC), value that can be the condition for each config you want to load. if value =1 load X if value =2 load Y You'll have to do this at all .NGC/.NGR you'll hypothetically load, to be able to "navigate" from and to each config files Best Zam
  15. Hello For some dedicated purpose I'll like to activate a DOUT pin depending of some midi activity. In fact lit a led if there is no incoming pitchbend data since 1 second, an turn it off as soon as new incoming data happen I think I can do this with NGR script, but as the script will run all time it's not an viable option (I have other run section in my NGC), I'll give it a try and see if I can accept script interruption. I don't see right now how it's possible with NGC only as I need a delay/timer, if someone have an idea ? Best Zam
