  1. ledrings as meters

    Incredible !
  2. ledrings as meters

    I don't know if this has been answered yet, but is it possible to use the ledrings of a midibox64e or midiboxLC as meters like on the digi002 and the new tascam controller ?  On these controllers there is a swap buttons that swaps between normal encoder display mode and meter mode.

    The advantage of the midibox is that you can learn from the experience, and you can be proud to have done the thing yourself...

  6. Thanks, so If I understand that PDF well, the PCI board as a chip on it that will allow register level programming ?  If that's the case I think I'm in buisness :)  That means It would work under xp and with a PCI card using porttalk or the io.dll file. Edit : From the pdf : "Only experienced programmers should attempt register-level programming" That sounds funny to me, I'm not a programmer and sending bytes directly to the card seems way more simple to me :)
  7. Thanks, I will try both this and a dll a friend sent to me : http://www.programmersheaven.com/zone15/cat610/22947.htm This is a dll containing functions to acess IO ports from programs written in C, C++, Vb and other.  This might help me if I want to write an object in C for Max/msp. I guess that object in C can link to that DLL. (If I udnerstand what a dll is) The thing I wonder now is will that be possible using a PCI version of the card, the technical support guy told me that I needed to talk to a PCI abstraction layer or something like that before I can send bytes to the card.
  8. debug is there in xp when using the commandp prompt though, but it would now work right ?
  9. Thanks :)  I will check this
  10. I just tested with the debug command and it works great !!   The thing I wonder now is if it'll work under windows xp with a pci board instead...
  11. Thanks, I'm glad to see I can manage this using dos commands. I know the card upon reset of the computer is set as inputs only, so I'll have to find the command to set the ports as outputs. The next goal will be to write an external for Maxmsp in C so I can send info from max to the card.  I guess that will be the hard part...
  12. I got to talk with the person who installed the card, while he did not answer all my questions, he did tell me a few useful tips. The card is on an ISA bus in the PC and spawns 4 addresses (usually 300h,301h,302h,303h) The first 3 addresses are the digital inputs/outputs pins, so to send a message to an output, you send the adress and the proper byte (0-7).   Anyone has a clue on how to send messages to an physical address on a pc ? Thanks, Nat
  13. Thanks, I have a very basic question, In the electrical world, what is the difference between digital signals and analog signals ?  I assume that digital signals uses a pulse waveform to mimic the on/off paradigm, but this is just a guess. Thanks, nat
  14. that's a good question.  The I/O card goes in a big breaker box that is made by the same company. there are pictures at the bottom of the page : http://www.measurementcomputing.com/cbicatalog/cbiproduct.asp?dept%5Fid=142&pf%5Fid=668&mscssid=SHCRJS5VFSVE9GUF4F7JK392MSQ60DUD This is to drive normal lamps, 100watts maximum.  Dimming is a plus for sure.
  15. Moebius, thanks, Would there be an easy way to control lights with the midiio128 ?
