  1. Hi Julian, cool cases! btw. just recess the socket cap screws into the wood, it looks great and holds everything just the same. I took the idea from the sides of a  KorgMS200, buth they used phillips screws, not as cool.

  11. elSID stereo = semi-minimal CS layout

    Turns out sparkfun has now switches that I bet will work just fine with the C64 keys, if anyone tries let us know!: Spark fun cherry MX switches And another source for this tipe of switches: mechanicalkeyboards.com
  12. elSID stereo = semi-minimal CS layout

    Hi there fallenturtle! Sadly I don't have inside pictures but let's see if I manage to explain it well enough. I took off part of the cs64 keyboard structure (lots of dremel work) there, don't remember exactly but seeing the keyboard layout I guess it was the F keys + some of the top row  and flipped it. The hacked thing was put together screwed to a diy pcb with proper traces to register the keys, and pin headers to connect it to the core. Btw. later on I noticed I could have gone with single key switches from an office calculator, I bet the plastic thing that holds the key in place is the same size or close enough to glue the C64 keys in place. Search for replacement switches for calculators like this ones, they may work:
  13. MB6582 MIDI IN notes not working

    didn't have to update the bootloader, smash's labels say it is 1.2b   BTW. after my previous post I played a little with the synth, it turns out there are CAN bus problems with the slave cores, so I will start over with the mios 1_9g and sid app upload, just to be sure, am I doing things right?:   Upload mios 1_9g to each core, changing device ID in MIOS Studio and changing J11 jumper accordingly   Upload sid app to core 1, clone sid app to the slaves via restart + menu button   Or, as the last step seems to give errors, upload the sid app to each core changing device ID in MIOS Studio and changing J11 jumper accordingly   Btw. Are we supposed to upload or clone the sid app to each core?   Could it make any difference if I change midi interface for the uploads? I'm using the non-dead gm5x5x5 and every other synth plays just fine   Thanks a lot!
  14. GM5(x5x5) not working, is the chip dead?

    hiya!     1) Make sure the jumpers are set correctly <- they are 2) Check the voltages <- will do, but... where to start? 3) Is the EEPROM mounted? <- the socket is mounted (reverse way) but no EEPROM as I just went with the jumpers thing to differentiate each gm5     Thanks!
  15. MB6582 MIDI IN notes not working

    Hi TK, I checked the INS page, found 1 instrument other than #1 with MIDI channel assigned, switched it to -- and also:   SpL:C0 SpU:D#3   So I changed SpL to D#3   It kind of worked for a while, I could trigger notes via keyboard, but some notes were skipped or played in the wrong octave (way too low) then suddenly it went back to not playing any note at all.   While using the "play" button It does respond to external kb pitch bend, and patch change but that's it, no notes (also mios studio pitch bend works, but not the keyboard)     BTW. I uploaded mios v1_9g via jumper +id to each core again and cloned sid app... clonig to core 4 gave an error again :no:   What else can I test?   thanks a lot!
