  1. MBSEQ Similarities

    They are both beautiful ;)   But to be honest, they have developed independently and simultaneously. I own the Sequentix P3 (http://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/sequentix-p3) The Cirklon's OS was built on P3 OS v4.5 The P3 as you can see from this yahoo group (if you're a member) has posting back to 2003 (https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/analogue-sequencer/files) the Midibox seq shows: "Erstellt 2003-2004" They are different beasts. I wouldn't be building my Midibox Seq if it was the same as the P3/Cirklon.  But I also won't be selling my P3 when I have my Midibox Seq finished. I get completely different tracks if i load in P3 OS 3.0 vs 4.5.    Each sequencer has it's own personality, and those personalities bring out different music from you.    I personally couldn't live with a single sequencer.   FYI, a good majority of the P3 and hence Cirklon are built of of concepts and how the actual Notron (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notron)  worked , thanks to early P3 user and friend of Colin Frazer , Paul Nagle (of Sound on Sound fame), who kept making notable but specific requests for functionality.  But the P3 like the Miidbox, while having an excellent base, was built out of user requests. It has shown me what an able developer with an intelligent and creative user base can make an innovative product that would have never of happened without both.   The Notron precedes them both and is a DAMN fine sequencer!    So is the real question which came first, the Notron or the P3/Midibox... it's the Notron !  :)    Rev  1 came out in 96.  
  2. MPC style Note Repeat Function

    Don't forget MPC 16 Levels feature combined with Note repeat is a great secret weapon   Please implement that as well :)     The 16 Level feature, let you use the 16 pads (or buttons in the Seqv4's case) to select either 16 levels of velocity or 16 different Note values. So essentially you would make it so buttons 1 - 16 would trigger 16 different levels of Velocity. or 16 different Notes       When combined with the Note Repeat and 16 levels provides great live possibilities
  3. I added a few features to the Humanize function...

    +1 for Robotizer       though  "Secret Weapon" might be more like it :)
  4. Mixer Map# currently selected jumps

      I actually very much want this feature but my Midibox Seq is in mid build right now.  In the next month it should be done and I'll need this feature , so will report on testing it.
  5. LPCXpresso not showing NXPLPC1700 Projects

    Actually, it should be lpc1769 , so with that said... which selection under lcp17 do i select it has:   lpc175x_6x lpx177x_8x     ?
  6. LPCXpresso not showing NXPLPC1700 Projects

    Thx!  I wasn't sure if there was an LCP17  and LCP1759, so didn't want to assume, not knowing the NXP Products very well.   I see when that expands, it has an lpc175x_6x     I'm assuming the FreeRTOS under that is what I want to select.
  7. LPCXpresso not showing NXPLPC1700 Projects

    I attached a screen shot, but it seems to have disappeared
  8. Hello,   I am trying to get started with the LPC17 CORE module for my Midibox Seq v4.   I am following the instructions that are posted here:   http://www.ucapps.de/mbhp_core_lpc17.html     following the steps for installing the MIOS32 Bootloader   I've downloaded the LPCXpresso 5.2.6 and I have installed and registered.   It does say this now on the Splash Screen: LPCXpresso5 is fully activated.   The instructions on the above link indicates this:   "After the LPCxpresso IDE has been opened, create a new "FreeRTOS project" for LPC1700 controllers. This project is only used as a dummy to enable the flash programmer - you don't need to change something in the code template, it won't run under MIOS32 anyhow! (You will transfer a precompiled binary into the flash)"       But when I go to "Create New project" it doesn't show ANY NXP  option.       It says this: Wizard:   LPC11/LPC12 LPC13/LPC17/LCP18 LPC2x/LPC3x LPC4 LPC8xx     I'm attaching a picture showing the New Project Wizard?     Is there something I'm, supporsed to Import first? Should I be selecting New Project?  Is there different steps?     Thanks!

      This is one of the way the Sequentix P3 can handles chords.  You have an "absolute" chord where you name the Note (eg; d5).   Or you can choose an "relative" mode.   Where you specify the "offset" from the main note.   So if your main note is f4 and you  add a +1 then you have g4.   http://sequentix.com/pdf/p3-manual-v3.1.006.pdf (under Aux Notes section)   ----------> from P3 manual The difference with the relative events is that you can now transpose all the notes in the chord just by  changing the main note value on the step.     Let’s do the same thing, using the “aux note rel†event: · set the note value on step 1 to C5 using the NOTE knob · assign aux A to the event “aux note rel†· assign aux B to the event “aux note rel†· assign aux C to the event “aux note rel†· set the aux A value on step 1 to 4 using the UPPER knob · set the aux B value on step 1 to 7 using the UPPER knob · set the aux C value on step 1 to 11 using the UPPER knob In the case of relative events, the note sent by each aux is the main note shifted by the aux value. In this example, with a main note of C5: · C5 + 4 semitones = E5 · C5 + 7 semitones = G5 · C5 + 11 semitones = B5

    So in trying to answer my own question, I've been looking at the source code.  But that leaves me with even more questions.. :)   I see this here: (root)/trunk/apps/sequencers/midibox_seq_v4/hwcfg/wilba_tpd/MBSEQ_HW.V4   # set this value to 1 if each track has its own set of 16 LEDs to display unmuted steps and current sequencer position # or if you are using a button/led matrix for misc. button/LED functions BLM_ENABLED 1   So the LED's on the matrix will show unmuted steps and current sequencer position.   So we have 4 Rows... is that for the 16 steps of the 4 Tracks for the currently selected Group?   It's just not clear what each of the 4 Rows of LED's are showing.     Then we have the buttons: # set this to 1 if these buttons should only control the "step triggers" (gate, and other assigned triggers) - and no UI functions BLM_BUTTONS_NO_UI 1   So where are these assigned buttons made?  Is their a menu option?  When I go through the Menu pages in the User Manual, I only see BLM options for Scalar.   How does one set these buttons to control/assign the "steps triggers"?       It seemed that this might have been something that was with v3 Seq?  I went looking there in the archives on the website, but haven't found much, and the pic that I saw from there, showed a  17 x 4 row , the 4 buttons in column looked like they were spaced to help control the "function".  Is that what the 4 extra buttons are for on the other project, the TPD?     Just trying to get an accurate description of exactly what the 16 x 4 matrix controls and how one would set that up.     Thanks!
  11. MIDIbox SEQ BLM 16x4 Control Surface PCB

    So, sorry to bring up this old post, but I was wondering if somebody could give me further insight into the function and use  of the 4 x 16 BLM.      I understand the concept of the BLM, at least at that 16 x 16 x X level.     On the larger BLM it's actually a 17 x 17 BLM and the extra colum and row , is how you define the "Modes" of the BLM.     So with the simpler, 16 x 4 BLM.   How does one control the "Modes"?  Or is it a simpler BLM and only controls... ?      I see all the instructions on how to build it but just haven't found anything describing its use and function.     Thanks!

      Out of stock there as well:   Availability:  not in stock   Inventory: 0 pcs  
  13. MagJack SI-60024-F

        Thx!   I guess, I'll pay for shipping from Germany from: http://www.csd-electronics.de   since i don't want to wait until March....
  14. MagJack SI-60024-F

    So Digikey are still out until end of March.     I did find here: http://ucapps.de/mbhp/mbhp_core_lpc17_orderlist.txt   Reichelt doesn't sell the MagJack There are several hobbyist distributors for these components, e.g. http://www.csd-electronics.de o MagJack 8 polig print 4xLED (#015-54085) for 3.49 EUR   So I see that they actually have some now for 3.95 Euro.   But I'm still trying to find somewhere stateside to get these, do you think that these will work from Sparkfun?:   https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8534   here's the datasheet for it:   https://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Prototyping/MagJack.pdf     Can I use this for the LPC17CORE?     Thanks!        
  15. MagJack SI-60024-F

          Digikey is out of stock until March 2014, anywhere else?
