  1. Hi Sauraen, thanks for your quick reply. i think i will go for the Tracker/VGM-Player first (same Hardware for both, i guess?) and decide later on, how to continue. a: have fun with it and be happy and/or don't have time to continue b: take the hard way and build the full front panel c: try it the "soft" way; i.e. fork it, take/adapt most of your code, but implement a menu structure to access params with less control elements... well knowing this would in fact be the hard way , (as i don't have any mios coding experience yet,) but also the more interesting... will see.
  2. Hi Sauraen and All, very impressive work, WOW i'm itching to build one, but this gigantic frontpanel making it so impressive also scares and restrains me from doing so... It seems that building the frontpanel takes around 80% of the overall effort, cost and time, blowing up the project to a size too large to fit into my spare time and hobby budget. Also the panel itself... so far, i did my front panels from scrap sheet metal on a drill press (+little rework with jigsaw and file), but with this layout, that way would take forever, so the only realistic option is to buy the machined pa
  3. unfortunately, i did not find the solution; i rather gave up after all . Made more bank sticks instead but nice to hear i'm not the only one having this error. So if you find a solution, please let me know what has been wrong...
  4. no; the sidbox is my first midibox, so i only have the core8 that's in the box. But i don't think it's caused by the adapter, as i can receive patches from another synth with it, and the loopback test works (also with long strings in the mios terminal).
  5. i still could not fix this. i walked through most steps of the midi troubleshooting page (although this does not really fit as i don't have any issues with code upload; i recently uploaded a customized version with improved button debouncing and 4-line LCD support, so i skipped some of the tests). this is my screen when starting mios studio (indicating "everthing is fine"): but when i try to receive Patch A065 (or any other patch) from the sysex librarian, i get this error: trying to dump the same patch from the control surface also sends f0 00 00 7e 4b 00 f7 f7 w
  6. hi all, i posted this question in the troubleshooting section first, but jaytee recommended to post it here to call more attention- i have a strange problem with my sidbox; it seems it does not send any sysex messages. my setup: -macbook with 10.9.5 -neusonik im/one midi-interface (successor of the uMIDI/O22 on the whitelist, claimed to be technically identic) -sidbox (one core, two sids, latest firmware (v2_044)) Uploading the firmware works fine and i can also send patches from computer to sidbox (e.g. taken from the vintage bank). But if i click "receiv
  7. i have a strange problem with my sidbox; it seems it does not send any sysex messages. my setup: -macbook with 10.9.5 -neusonik im/one midi-interface (successor of the uMIDI/O22 on the whitelist, claimed to be technically identic) -sidbox (one core, two sids, latest firmware (v2_044)) Uploading the firmware works fine and i can also send patches from computer to sidbox (e.g. taken from the vintage bank). But if i click "receive patch" or "receive bank", the sidbox only sends short stuff like "F0 00 00 7E 4B 00 F7" or "F0 00 00 F7". Same thing when trying to dump with "
  8. ok, thanks. i added the pull-up and diode and it boots fine now... after i did not get correct sounds, i did the interconnection test and got weird results so i checked the wiring and soldering once again (no errors..), attached only one sid module and repeated interconnection test; perfect this time. So i stuffed the SID again and voila- works fine (but one sid only). next step will be to check the other sid module individually... edit: both work now. No idea why, but it works :-D -basically, i unplugged the connection wires, checked both SID modules individually and plu
  9. As my problem seems very similar, i'm writing in this thread. my hardware consists of 1 core and 2 sid modules, one 6581 and one 8580. Control Surface is planned, but not finished yet (so DIN/DOUT are not connected yet). PSU wiring is exactly as in this link, but only one core/sid/sid instead of four. A 4x20 LCD is connected and working. I omitted the pull-up resistor and diode for CAN-Bus, as i only have one core (correct..?). Uploading MIOS worked well, but the SID Firmware does not seem to work. When turning power on, at first a screen with MIOS shows, then the following message:
