MIDIbox Tweaker (3/4)



  1. Congratulations on getting back into it! I'm in a similar situation to you - although I hadn't started gathering modules, I'd tracked down enough SIDs to build a full MBSID - though this was before the stereo option was added, so "full" meant 4 SIDs. Life very much got in the way, and now I'm back to building it once I've sorted out exactly what I need based on the BOM that was posted in the forum a while back.
  2. I too don't have anything really to add (my 6582 is in a similar state; I've got the PCBs and the SIDs and that's about it) but I can't wait to see how your build goes!
  3. That looks the business, well done. What's the deal with the upside-down monitor?
  4. I just got some very funny looks when I declared "Oh, that's sexy as hell" in the office.
  5. This isn't how velocity sensitivity works. Keyboards have 2 switches per key, a known distance apart that are pressed one after the other. The time difference between the 2 switches being triggered is used to calculate the velocity, which is sent as the second byte of a MIDI Note-on message. When you release the key, the keyboard detects this and sends a MIDI Note-off.
  6. The way I'd do it re: the keyboard is to get a cheapy MIDI KB, something like an old Evolution one. I've got a Commodore branded one made by Evolution that would be perfect and no, you can't have it :-P. The keys are a little undersized admittedly but it's lightweight and easy to rip apart.
  7. $50 for all the hardware for a monome clone? Sounds like a helluva deal for me, add in a few choice purchases from Smash and that's a sweet little piece of kit.
  8. I've looked briefly into stuff like this before now, and so far I've not found an easy way to turn a standard such as VGA or DVI into a vendor-specific LVDS interface - much less so a fairly old, low-res analogue standard such as S-Video. I'll be the first to admit that my research hasn't exactly been exhaustive but it looks like you're in for a hell of a lot of work. That said, if you figure it out I'd love to see it!
  9. That's awesome! Especially considering it's "made from bits I had lying around". What size LCD is that?
  10. I can't help you with your DC/AC woes, but if you're in the market for a new reverb I can recommend the Line6 Verbzilla, provided your setup allows you to use guitar effects. I picked one up a while back off a friend who was selling his music gear off and as far as I'm concerned it's the most versatile reverb I've ever used. Plus, it runs off 9VDC the same as pretty much every other guitar pedal - even a 9V battery.
  11. There's another thing added to my big list of stuff I wanna do but will never get around to. Hmm, Where I work there's a big pile of write-off laptops...
  12. You hooked your drummer up to a MIDI-porn sync?
  13. Very cool! I'm loving the gold panel and block fonts, very 70s-futurist style. Looks like something out of Logan's Run or suchlike.
