  1. tutorial LC emulation

    Good idea! 7809 now added to my order list.  :)
  2. tutorial LC emulation

    Thanks for the pic d2k, that's exactly what I was after. When I get some time tomorrow, I'm gonna finish the MF module with any luck. I wanted to try your suggestion of a 10k pot, but unfortunately I don't have any 10k pots around, so I'm gonna have to order one when I get time... Finally, the powering thing. Now knowing that both the MF module and CORE module need their own power IN's, I was wondering if I could put my 15v straight in to the core module, or will I melt the 7805.  :o The scematic recommends between 7-10v
  3. tutorial LC emulation

    Ok, I'm actually having problems building the thing now. All my boards are done apart from my MF module. With my MF module, I have everything soldered up apart from the diodes. Now, I decided to test the PSU part of the board, the bit you are mean't to set to 8v. Now I'm using a laptop wall adaptor as my power in to the module, which gives 15.13v DC. The output was giving a voltage, but when I set the POT to give the highest voltage, I only got 6.3v, which falls a bit short of the 8-10 thorsten recommends for the ALPS faders. Finally, I'm a bit confused about power... Does the core module need it's own power source aswell as the MF module? or does the core module take it's power from the MF module. EDIT: One more thng, does anyone have a guide or photo on how to get the correct polarity for those 32 diodes on the MF module. They aren't really marked too well on the circuit layout.
  4. Good places for LED's in the UK?

    I need to order around 100 LED's here in the UK. Red ones preferably. The best price I have so far is £10 for 100 LED's... Can anyone suggest anywhere I can get LED's for less please?

  6. Where 2 get the Fortron/Source FSA55P31 in the UK?

    As per subject really... Tried farnell and RS with no joy. I need to powr my Midibox LC I'm building... so any alternative solutions would also be helpful. I'd rather not use a PC PSU if possible.

  8. Do I need a MidiMerger in my Midibox LC?

    Thanks guys. I'm gonna try using the MAX232 chip on the LTC module, then connect my Midibox LC to the serial port on my PC as suggested my mobius. I can then keep my Midi port on my PC free for my keyboard.
  9. I'm building a MidiBox LC, and I only have one MIDI IN and one MIDI OUT on my PC. Now... I'm also using a MIDI keyboard in my set up. Now, how do I connect this lot together, since my MIDI keyboard has no MIDI THRU. I want to be able to use the keyboard and Midibox at the same time. Will a MidiMerger solve my problems? Or will I be able to use an LTC module instead? I'd rather avoid using my serial port on the PC if possible.
  10. tutorial LC emulation

    Hi all, I'm about to start building one of these... I have most of the bits (only the MF module left to build). I'm a bit confused about some MIDI stuff tho. After reading the manual for the Logic Control unit, it says that a direct midi in and out connection is needed between the computer and the control unit. Now, I am also using a MIDI keyboard in my setup, but my computer only has one MIDI in and one MIDI out... Will I have to use the MIDI merger in order to use the Midibox LC and my keyboard at once or is there an easier way? My keyboard does not have MIDI thru but I have the LTC module which allows me to use a thru on the Midibox LC... I'm not really sure how MIDI thru works tho.  ???

    Dont' worry, I'm not annoyed. YGPM does indeed mean "You got Private Message", like YGM = "You got Mail".

  14. Newbie here - which Midibox to build?

    pay_c: Thanx for the links... I'll check out the MP3's goyousalukis: I see what you mean about the modular thing now - seems like a good way to do things. I've contacted d2k about those bits... It looks like these bits became avalible at just the right time!
  15. About to startgetting the bits for a Midibox LC together in the UK, but niether CPC or Farnell do Motorised faders... Where are you guys getting them from?
