  1. PCB for AOUT card

    Hello,   is there anybody who has available PCB of AOUT card (for TLV chips). I have seen it on homepage in USA but I need an European seller. I need 2 pieces!   Thank you in advancec!   Frank
  2. DAW integration of LED rings

    Is there any way to integrate the 8xLED ring+Encoder card to some DAW (In my case Gig Performer)? I want to connect the Midibox NG to the computer by USB and I need a complete interation in DAW, it means If I change the values in the computer, the Midibox NG will receive the values, and the LED rings will show the actual value in DAW. Also I want to make some buttons with the same functionality. Any idea!   Frank
  3. Ainser64 configuration

    I think that I will make 2 AIN modules, one AINSER64 to connect the less important pots with 8 bit reolution and one AINSER8 to connect the high resolution pots (VCF freq, VCO detuning, LFO freq). The AINSER64 is tested with longer cables(80cm) in 8 bit, and no jittering.  The J19 has 2 chip select bits. How can I connect the additional 16 DOUTs? I will need them, so I have to findnit out. Is there any manual there? 
  4. Ainser64 configuration

    Hello, I want to use Ainser64 module with 2 configurations. 48 pots should be configured as 7 bit and 8 pots should be configured as 11bit. Is it possible to configure it or I have to use another AINSER8 board for the 8 pots with 11bit configuration? 
  5. Ainser64 configuration

    The control panel is 90cm wide. Some pots will be 70cm from the 4051. Most probably I will do the connection with moltiwire flat cable directly from potentiometers to the AINSER board. Do you think can I manage this distance and solution without jittering in 11bit mode?  Is there a possibility to manage 1 Ainser64 board and 16 Aouts by one STM32 board (MBNG)? 
  6. Ainser64 configuration

    This is not a big problem, because I can add one Ainser8 module in higher resolution. The problem is that I need an additional 16 AOUTs. Other solution will be that I set all the inputs for higher resolution, but in that case I will have problem with jittering of all AINs. In 8 bit resolution rhe jittering is not an issue but in 10bit mode it will ne. 
  7. STM32 F4 AIN problem

    The modification was based on my request to add Load Snopshot without triggering.  I will try to add some resistors to the switches to lower little bit a voltage to prevent overvoltage on AINs.  Frank
  8. STM32 F4 AIN problem

    I am using the STM32 core with NG. I am starting to have problem that sometimes the AIN on the STM board stopping to respond. When it stopped to work I have connected the notebook to check what can be the reason (SW or HW). I have checked the parameters of AIN with the show id AIN:1. In both cases (the AIN is working and AIN is not working) all the parameters are the same only the Value parameter is different (when it is not working the value is 0, if it works, tha value is changing delending on the input). One important thing: When the AIN stops to work, the standard restart does not help (reset from the MIOS studio)  When I am switching off the whole controller for few seconds the AIN mostly starts to work.  Any idea?  Frank
  9. STM32 F4 AIN problem

    Thabk for reply.  Few answers: 1. The MPU doue not freeze because all other functions are running.  2. These AINs are working in switch mode, so they should be enough for that task.  3. There can be problem with the voltage of the input signal, because I am using th source which is coming from another STM32 board which is running MBKB. But in the last 2 years I had no any problem with it.  4. I am using the last (I think not released) version of MBNG which is modified by TK. (sysex handling as text in NGR, and modified Loadsnapshot which is not forwarding the values). But I have not recognized these problems earlier. The modification has been done approx. 2 weeks ago.  Frank
  10. STM32 F4 AIN problem

    F4 core and AIN (MCU).  There is also AINSER64 but this is working. 
  11. AINSER parallax mode

    Nobody uses the Ainser in Parallax mode eith succes? 
  12. AINSER parallax mode

    Hello,   I am trying to understand the parallax mode of AINSER. I would like to use it, but in my case it works exactly as DIRECT function. In NGC I am configuring the AINSER and the forwarded 2 SENDERs:   AINSER n=1 enabled=1 muxed=1 cs=1 resolution=7bit pinrange=3:10:4055 EVENT_AINSER id=3 hw_id=3 fwd_id=SENDER:3 range=0:127 no_dump=1 ain_mode= Snap EVENT_SENDER id=3 hw_id=3 type=CC chn=1 cc=43 range=0:127 no_dump=0 ports=1111110000000000 EVENT_SENDER id=103 hw_id=3 type=CC chn=4 cc=43 range=0:127 no_dump=0 ports=1111110000000000   Based on the actual status of one button in .NGR I am activating Sender 3 or Sender 103 and copying its value back to AINSER. It works correctly with SNAP function but if I change the SNAP to Parallax it jumps directly to the actual status of the potentiometer when I move with it (like the direct mode). Can it be connected with the think that the AINSER works in range 0-4065 and the CC works in range 0-127? What is a correct solution? Frank
  13. Snapshot nodump=1

    Are the parameters of event saved if I adjust nodump=1? I would like to save all parameters/events and load them but make no any actions when I am loading the snapshot. I would write a short procedure in ngr to axtivate all parameters strp by step in specific order.    Frank
  14. Loading snapshot without triggering

    The other solution of my problem could be the loading of only few defined parameters not all the snapshot. In that case I could load parameters which are sgoring the program change numbers which I need to send the sound module than load the whole snapshot and send cc numbers automatically at loading. 
  15. Hello, Is it possible to load snapshot without triggering the assigned MIDI command and witjoit executing of fwd_id? I need to do yhe following: 1. Load the snapshot (the defined values by no_dump) and do nothing - at the moment it is loading values than dumping, I need loading without dumping 2. Send 2 Progra change commands (based on the loaded values) one fkr ch1 and one for ch4 - solved in NGR 3. Wait 800ms - solved  in NGR 4. DUMP SNAPSHOT - it is working, solved in ngr 5. Activate and deactivate senders based on the loadwd LED values - it is working, solved in NGR   Is there any solution, or can I put it to wishlist for Midibox NG as Load_nodump_snapshot command? Frank
  16. 8x24 LED matrix

    Is it possible to make a 8x 24 led matrix from 4xDO board? There is an example for 8x16 but the 4th shift register is not used, but I will need it to extend the matrix. 
  17. 8x24 LED matrix

    Or?? DOUT_MATRIX n=1 rows=8 inverted=0 sr_dout_sel1=1 sr_dout_sel2=2 sr_dout_r1=3 sr_dout_r2=4 led_emu_id_offset=1001 it is 16x16 matrix, but basically should work too.....
  18. 8x24 LED matrix

    Just single color. 
  19. MIDIbox CV V2 Concept

    Thank you There is project.hex file in the folder... I think this is something else and I have to download only the midibox file.  Is there any list of NRPN messages and explanation how to control it without lemur?  Also I will need some instructions how to configure the CV outputs, LFO and EG parameters and mod matrix. Does anybody have some info?  Frank
  20. MIDIbox CV V2 Concept

    I am planning to use it in my analog synth. I will have potentiometers and switches for all functions I need to control. I will manage them by MBNG board. The NG board will store the presets and will manage additional 24-32 simple CV outputs controlled by the pots. The more complicated functions as CV for VCO, EG generators, LFO and mod matrix will be managed by the CV V2 board with 8 CV outputs and Gater/Trigger outputs. Therefore I will not need a control surface connected to CV V2 just do some mapping of CC messages or NRPN and sending them from MBNG board. Do you think is it possible? I do not understand ... is there somewhere the HEX file? Can anybody send me a link or send this file? My project is in the status of planning (analog structure, mod matrix structure) The case is more less finished, just I have sent the chassis for painting. See photo! Frank
  21. MIDIbox CV V2 Concept

    Is there any literature about midibox cv v2,  sw which I have to upload to the STM32 core, any configuration examples, etc. I have not found any information about it.  F  
  22. CV outputs in MBNG

    I am starting my next project, which is a patchable Model D clone controlled by CVs. I am adding extra LFOs controlled by CV. Totally I will need 48 8bit and 7 12bit CV, scan 48pots and 70 buttons in matrix, drive 250 leds, 50 direct outputs. Also I want to connect 4x20 character OLED display. I assume that for that number of IO I will need 2 NG boards. Is it possible to send MIDI CC parameters where 2 CC channels are merged and allowing of sending 8bit values?  The chassis is in progress.  Frank
  23. CV outputs in MBNG

    The CC outputs will be connected to ElectricDruid chips which have 8 bit input resolution and I want to use the whole range. Of course I do not need to solve this problem if I can connect 56 analog outputs to NG board but I think it is only 32/NG board, than I have to use another NG board and the remaining AOUTs will be connected to that board. There is possible to communicate via MIDI. If there is any solution to transfer 8 bit signal via MIDI this can be a solution (MSB+LSB).
  24. delay function

    Just one question about delay function and Sender/Receiver.  If I call delay function in NGR, are the Sender and Receiver working in the background during delay? It seems that during delay forwarding of midi events from Receiver to Sender are stopped.  Is there any solution to make delay between 2 functions in NGR without stopping of other running functions in the background?  Frank
  25. delay function

    No, I am sending sysex for switching On/Off the Break Is Make function. It causes that after switching the KB board is sending Note Off messages for all notes starting from 0 to 127. I do not need it but can do nothing with it.
