MIDIbox Guru

MIDIbox Guru (4/4)



  1. I'm looking for a couple midiboxers who use Ableton Live and have an iPad. Currently, all my app does is trigger clips and do a few other functions (mute, solo, arm, loop clips) over network MIDI (using an excellent network MIDI library maintained by our own Kurt Arnlund). But I'm adding more features, such as automatic hardware remapping. It'll kind of work like the APC-40, except you could build your own midiboxes or controllers you've bought and automap them in a few ways using the app as an interface for it. You also won't be limited to a single controller, as any combination of controllers can be mapped to different functions and changed on the fly. For example: you could have a controller with 8 volume faders that remap with the clip grid to control volume for whatever group of 8 tracks are selected at the time. The knobs of that controller could remap to macros on each track. Then, another controller could become whatever device you have selected at the time, or be an aggregate of your favorite parameters from different tracks that you could "page" through to remap, or perhaps drag a parameter name from a list to a knob and remap it on the fly. The app isn't designed like LiveControl, where your main focus is on the app. Instead it's designed for people who are busy with their hardware. You can trigger clips without taking your eyes off of Live, because you can touch the iPad, drag to your clip (there's an on-screen preview showing which clip you'll trigger), and release to fire the clip. You can also navigate around the clip grid by dragging or swiping. Currently, it's not much different than other clip trigger apps on the app store, but i think the hardware integration might set it apart. I can't offer any kind of payment besides a free copy, but your ideas will definitely be heard and it's an opportunity to help make this app be something you'd enjoy using, especially if you're into building hardware and want a way to extend its uses. For anybody just interested in the existing version of the app, please find it through my website at http://www.sub-version.net (sorry for the shameless plug). For anybody interested in testing, please ask via private message. Any discussion of the app just post here. Thanks! ultra (a busy guy who can't wait to get back to midiboxing)
  2. I'll try it later tonight and let you know what happens. The .hex itself is what you upload to the core. ultra
  3. I'm kinda new to Mac and I haven't used xcode as anything but a basic editor. I have programmer's status, but my understanding of the toolchain isn't the greatest so I just follow the wiki instructions. ultra
  4. plz do! i'm using xcode and make -s from the terminal. i'd love to see my errors highlighted among all those warnings that i ignore for now and will get to fixing later. :P ultra
  5. still working on "midibox live" after 4 years. i'd have more done if i wasn't working so much. learning a lot more about c.

      i do, however, have quite a bit done. the pieces are in place. :)

  6. i've looked at their buttons before for one of my projects, but the button/spacer layouts aren't correct for me. it's an ableton live controller so i thought soft buttons would be cool, but i always return to the tact switch and led configuration. it's cheap and easy and works fine. i never noticed that the brain is $189. seems expensive compared the price of an LPC17.
  7. graduating college this week. my degree is 'electronics and computer engineering', and i wouldn't have taken interest in it if it wasn't for midibox.

      Haha, that can get cute fast...

  11. the best way to figure out how to do something you don't know how to do is spend money on it.

    i should add that this driver is unfortunately not for general use. im having some trouble making it open and also making it serve my needs. i also think that with a glcd, its difficult to do anything thats general use because it could do so many things. theres definitely a general structure to it that can easily be reused. perhaps ill make some skeleton app.

      Yes, it's amazing. But there's a lot of shit out there too. Luckily this forum has about as close as u get to zero of that crap.
