  1. Hi i have found this company selling 4X20 OLED displays for 30 Euros if we buy 10 or more pieces (unit price is 33.5 euros)               IMPORTANT READ CAREFULLY this display is not (yet) officially supported by the MB6582 project, it is the same size as the one used by Wilba in the first prototype and needs special attention in the construction design. There are 2 possibilities to make it fit with the provided front panel and PCBs. 1)using 6.5 mm spacers (can be accomplished by the use of several bolts) the LCD can be placed under the PCB with a final gap between the LCD and the front panel of 3.5 mm, but you ll need to use 8mm tall tactile switches and depending on the knobs used it may be necessary to trim the encoders shafts 2)following Wilba s original prototype, you can place the LCD between the PCB and the front panel but you ll also need to create 2 extra PCBs to support the leds and buttons around the display.It is possible to obtain the original PCB layouts from Wilba but also to create them with prototyping board. Solution 1) have not been tested on a real box so solution 2) is preferred. IT HAS TO BE CLEAR THAT THIS DESIGN NEEDS SPECIAL ATTENTION AND IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT IT IT MAY BE EASIER TO STICK TO A NORMAL LCD.PLED IS NOT A MUST AFTER ALL. I am going to buy 1 so i need 9 more pieces to get into the bulk order otherwise i won t probably even buy it myself, although i d like to. Please have a look at this thread: http://www.midibox.org/forum/index.php?topic=9723.msg70876#msg70876 Simone
  2. 1000 outputs for cimo

    Hi so I think that if the projects gets funded i ll use MIDIBox platform linked to vvvv with OSC/MIDI, I ve reduced the number of total outputs (for mental sanity purposes) to 352, each will drive a final stage of 48v at 20W, I know that makes a total of 147 Amperes, I am planning to buy half a dozen of Power supplies so that I can split the lines evenly. Lights: I d go for Halogen 12v light (group of 4 serially connected) but that fraction of second it takes to get to full brightness and back to off is a serious bummer, LEDs would be better but I need something that can spread the light rather evenly around. For the final stage I am probably going to re-use an already working system I used a couple of years ago: 2n3055 and a basic transistor to trigger the final stage. Is it possible to use a matrix system for the final stage too, or am I supposed to use one stage for each output? About modulating the power of the output will I be able to do it with PWM avoiding using Analog OutPuts? tx Simone
  3. 1000 outputs for cimo

    You thought you got rid of me! Not so easy boys... So today I woke up and decided I want to drive 1000 1W bright leds, what do you think ? It would be digital On/Off triggering and my software platform of choice would be http://vvvv.org . Seems like a huge task, and I d probably go for some already built hardware driver, any idea? How do you see otherwise the idea of building a 1000 digital outputs with MIDIBox ? Anybody tried something similar? So how s everybody doing ? Cheers from Tenerife! Simone

    Hola Jefe! tx for the offer, at the moment what "worries" me is what s the best solution for the final stage hardware wise, 1000 2W drivers is a lot of components.. I would probably go for some already built hardware if the price is reasonable.. it s not a problem for 16x 8x8 led matrices but it could be for the final stage.. dunno.. Simone
  5. 1000 outputs for cimo

    fixed.. no led walls, the leds will placed in plastic cans..
  6. Hey, haven t forgot about you good people.. and haven t been sitting in my balans stol doing nothing all this time, so here you get a few videos n links about what I am doing now... all in all there is always a stm32 beating inside this chest of mine.. and some more stuff here: http://vimeo.com/iolab/videos Happy new year ! Simone

  12. Hi has anybody ever come out with a solution to control the ssm filter bank (Seppoman project) with a simple stereo pot? You know it s time to put them to work somehow..

    nay! solo se refería al tamaño del notas.. :)
  14. Natural Disaster?

    I think that "natural disaster" stands for the level of organization of the society and the employment scene here in the islands... So UPS made it to my front door, now you would expect a dark brown van with a guy looking like Jim Carrey (o maybe Tom Hanks, all in all we are in island in the middle of the ocean), anyway, the guy came with a hippy-like old Renault van and looked more like the local dealer then an UPS employee. He s got my parcel but no money to change.. I sent him back to where ever he came from.. now I understand the meaning of "natural disaster" ...

    mm so I ve ordered some components from Mouser.. have a look at the first line, where it says STA CRUZ DE TENERIFE (that s where I live...) sounds scary...

  16. My very first exhibition

    ... actually my work is only the projections, I haven t painted anything..
  17. My work here is the two mapped paintings with projections
  18. My very first exhibition

    Hi the place is in La Orotava, Canary Islands (Spanish territory but a few hundreds kms off the Morocco' coast) and it is a gallery called Aperitivos Visuales, the exhibition is part of a festival named NumaCircuit, www.numacircuit.es The projections are programmed with vvvv (vvvv.org) on a 3Ghz PIV and an nvidia 6600gt, plus a wiimote. I hope I ll have some more detailed videos soon. Simone
  19. Dead OLED display ?

    Hi there so I friend passed by and I wanted to show him all the leds and bells of the most unused MB6582 on the face of planet heart, so i plugged the dusty thing in and ... no LCD happy welcome.. may I be a victim of the infamous OLED chicken waving voodoo...
  20. Looking for new Linux distro

    ... I see wide agreement here.. I think these days things can change really quickly so I may have to point out that I haven t used Linux for audio for over one year, so my advice "may" be outdated, yet I reckon the CCRMA packages/mailing list being very solid and decently updated. Being Linux the modular beast it is, a distro can be better than another also depending on the way you use it and your needs.

  22. Hi (long time uh?) I am looking for a simple cracklebox, noise mahcine little synth etc kit easily available in Europe (Spain) for a workshop. Alternatively a simple circuit I could etch myself with simple to find components. I am all ears. Simone
  23. Hi I am looking for more advice for a simple project: the circuit should light up 4 ultra-bright LEDs randomly, that s it, maybe being able to change the way it behaves would be nice as well.. tx
  24. URGENT: Random light circuit

    Hi I know that circuit, I ve actually won 2 years ago' pumpkin contest in Sahira school with a flashing blue and red pumpkin... scaaaryy The point is that now I need to flash a single light (4 leds in parallel) at random intervals .. tx
