  1. Yes you usually need a metallized knob to make the touch detection usable !!!
  2. it's a conditional, it will activate the event according to value don't remember precise form, I don't write NGC since years now, but something like if_less=37, your receiver will forward only data from 0 to 36
  3. Hi Chris IIRC range= is not a split but a scale function, so range=0:36 change value 0-->0, 127-->36 and linear ponderation in-between. maybe try with conditional function, if_= Cheers Zam
  4. Hi Long time I don't talk here Your P&G have big (coreless ?) motor, I suspect you need way more power than MF_NG is able to offer, but I don't remember precisely what onboard reg offer, 10V 1A ? That's probably why it's not smooth. For those motors you probably need 24V, with probably more than 1A in stall condition...you need good protection/limiter otherwise you'll blow drivers About PWM "printer" noise, it's more or less intrinsic. There is a lot of PWM motor driver, you can probably test some others and have better result ? Side question, is't those Amek series loaded with VCA fader ? Best Zam
  5. hello you need to define MF events for each fader and associated midi event, which is different from the (fader) module parameter this is the partial NG template for motor fader ################################################################################ # Motorfaders ################################################################################ # we've a single MBHP_MF_NG module with 8 motorfaders # It has to be configured for Motormix protocol! MF n=1 enabled=1 midi_in_port=IN3 midi_out_port=OUT3 chn=1 ts_first_button_id=2001 config_port=USB3 # on motorfader movements EVENT_MF id= 1 type=PitchBend chn= 1 range=0:16383 EVENT_MF id= 2 type=PitchBend chn= 2 range=0:16383 EVENT_MF id= 3 type=PitchBend chn= 3 range=0:16383 EVENT_MF id= 4 type=PitchBend chn= 4 range=0:16383 EVENT_MF id= 5 type=PitchBend chn= 5 range=0:16383 EVENT_MF id= 6 type=PitchBend chn= 6 range=0:16383 EVENT_MF id= 7 type=PitchBend chn= 7 range=0:16383 EVENT_MF id= 8 type=PitchBend chn= 8 range=0:16383 # on touchsensor event (first id has been specified in the MF configuration above) EVENT_BUTTON id= 2001 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x68 range=0:127 EVENT_BUTTON id= 2002 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x69 range=0:127 EVENT_BUTTON id= 2003 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x70 range=0:127 EVENT_BUTTON id= 2004 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x71 range=0:127 EVENT_BUTTON id= 2005 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x72 range=0:127 EVENT_BUTTON id= 2006 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x73 range=0:127 EVENT_BUTTON id= 2007 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x74 range=0:127 EVENT_BUTTON id= 2008 type=NoteOn chn= 1 key=0x75 range=0:127 best Zam
  6. 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
  7. Hello Can't say for MIDIO128... but for MB_NG it's in the .ngc parameter file. Best Zam
  8. Hello Thomas Look promising ! Best Zam
  9. 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. Best Zam
  10. 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
  11. Hello I'm not sure you do wrong, this is probably intrinsically related to PWM driver Best Zam

    motorfaders

    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

    motorfaders

    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 advanced digital desk, the drift or miss count of motor turn for precise fader position is not a issue. As is it seem complicated to use this with midibox HW What you can try maybe is wiring pin 3-4 and 5-6 (assuming 1-2 is motor...) to a DIN in encoder mode and at least know how many count you have for a full travel, that data will give you fader accuracy and position. Then find a solution to use this data in place of analog input (from a resistive passive element) to handle data that will tell the motor what to do. Best Zam

    Off topic... J'avais oublié... ca pique fort quand même Zam
  15. 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
