MIDIbox Newbie

MIDIbox Newbie (1/4)



  1. Yes I did see that. And I did know that NG cannot make the full range of velocity. That's why I keep KB for now. Thanks for the answer !
  2. In the general idea of Midibox_KB : should we use it only as an interface from the keyboard to midi, and then make a separate Midibox_NG project to take care of all the other things (like buton and led ) ? If so, what should be the connection between the two devices ?
  3. Long story short : father in law did never talk again about the project. So I went to make a midification of my old Yamaha gear (Yamaha DSR-2000) but then the keyboard fall and is broken. Now, we are a year later and i come back to midi keyboard. A 4 octaves one. And it's working ! And right now, i see some issue... like... The screen... it take me so much time to have it working and i did see that it's useless ! haha. And I can have 4 analog input, that's great, but not more than 4. And worst, i will never have "octave up/down" button because I can't have button. So i should go to MidiBox_NG instead of MidiBox_KB, even for a simple nude keyboard. In fact, the only -really- missing things are the octave up/down, and being able to change the USB-Midi settings. Like I would like to have only two USB ports, one dedicated for the keyboard (with midi IN and OUT 1) and the other dedicated for Midi In and Out 2. Well. Just to say : still alive !

    Some pictures of what I've made.
  5. Hi ! I dont say that as a excuse for Windows but : we have to keep in mind that before and after a firmware update, it is not the same USB device anymore. And MIOS don't let the old one go, and don't show the new one. But well, I think a patch to correct this specific usecase will never happen.
  6. Thanks both of you for the complete answers ! Yes it will not be a complete DAW for sure, but you can put the song in your head quickly in, test some transposition and all and, after you had the big smile on your face that say "oh yeah that's it", export the result in MIDI to your computer and... Don't touch it for years because that's how computer-daw work. What is a "BLM" ?
  7. The link to the sources is... Intimidating. In this page : http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_seq.html the PDF from Features / MIDI Remote functions (near the end) have no "Layer D" but two "Track 3". No one see it since Midibox Seq V2
  8. Hi ! Can you tell a little more about that ? In the tracks, I choose my instruments so it's clear, but what about the scenes ? Is it the different parts of the song, Like intro - part one - refrain - part two - refrain - part three - break - refrain - end ? Didn't you lost two scenes during the development, you talk about 8 scenes on YouTube I think ? Thanks and have a great day (or night..) !

    Hi ! You can take this off your to-do list. The naked waiting keyboard hit the floor and have broken keys... So it is not my favorite keyboard anymore
  10. Lol, it was too early in the discussion maybe Sorry
  11. Take a look: There was no chance that I could find it with the search function but... By looking deeper and deeper in the forum I fall into this tread.
  12. Yes ! Theses are good tips ! I'll try by myself now with standard connectors. I have to learn and it's a useful exercise. And with the files you provided it will help too. Thanks !
  13. So... It take way too much time to start using eagle. What a nightmare for a such simple board: Note that i havent check the reverse/mirror pin thing yet because I have a question first: how to make the upper solder pads to touch the border of the board ? This way it will be possible to solder this board to a 90° angle to the LCD with no wire. And then I will find how to add the ribbon connector schematic..
  14. Hi ! I'm currently reading the Midibox NG manual. Is it helpful if I write some parts here that (in my opinion) could be changed ? Like in this page: http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_ng_manual_fs.html "Today we would prefer to use Fairlightiii's premade PCB solutioninstead - more informations about this once I get my hands on the PCBs! :-)" As theses PCB will never be reedited, it is no more relevant ? So. If comments like that is cool for you, I can continue. Or if it bother you, I can stop. But please note that by using my phone to read the doc and write on the forum, I have no way to format and use the code tool.
  15. Hi ! I'm happy to say that the core is okay, i've soldered my second LCD and... it's working GREAT ! See the lasts pictures ;) https://photos.app.goo.gl/5bR4r2ivZe5dgYYW9 @TK. I've added three of them in the Gallery, please fell free to use them if you like.
