  1. Wow, what a great device and what an amazing demo!  Congratulations Bruno!   I might have to remix that melody of yours too! ;)
  2. This may be useful for people for powering their music equipment while travelling or for mobile gigs etc... I was quite impressed and hope the company does well.
  3. Elrom Teaser :)

    Great work guys!
  4. Troubleshooting midiphy SEQ v4+

    A genuine Hakko 936 style tip works wonders over the Chinese clones also, really worth spending the extra money one from my experience.
  5. Troubleshooting midiphy SEQ v4+

    Got it! Removed the 3 Jumpers from the Waveshare itself, and changed the slider from USB to 5V  and now its working fine! Peter shows it here at 55:46  
  6. Troubleshooting midiphy SEQ v4+

    When i check the voltage between Pin 3 GND1 and Pin 4 (VDD) I get a negative voltage, i.e. -3.3V Black probe to GND1, and Red probe to VDD. I presume it should not be negative? Thanks for your time, Adrian.

    Thats a good question actually!  I wonder if Peter or Andy have a USB "doctor" stick to test, they're really quite handy.  
  8. Out-of-stock parts for midiphy BOM tool

    Found a really cheap source for the 19mm transparent Multimec caps / 1S11-19.0: 35 pcs = €13.00 Including VAT Plenty of Stock, and free Shipping to the UK and Ireland, not sure about other European countries.  RS Online would have cost me  €41.38 with delivery for 40, (multiples of 10) Found them via , which figured out that farnell had the .0 missing from the part number, never trust google alone!
  9. 8580 SIDs for Sale @ Meeblip

    Wow, brings back memories of the old SID Haul on here, where almost 10,000 (iirc) NOS 6582A chips were tested and sold by Wilba.  He sold them for less than 20 euro each too.

    Ah okay! Desoldering is usually the main cause of pads lifting alright. Hope you can hot wire it and save it! 
  11. Troubleshooting midiphy SEQ v4+

    Are you soldering the superflux LEDs at the recommended temperature of 300 degrees C? Going higher can damage them, and if the pads have lifted slightly it sounds like you're temperature might be too high.

    In case you or other MIDIboxers are distracted by social media like I am, we have a midiphy facebook page where we post regular updates such as stock statuses, new designs, news etc.. It would be great if members on here could give the page a like to show your support.

  13. Sync problems: Tempest & MPC5000

    To answer the original question some hardware is definitely later than others.  Especially in the case of the Roland Boutique series, there is a noticeable latency with each of those units. More info on them here:   If any Roland boutique owners could test this firmware changes to see if it can resolve delays it would be awesome.
  14. Sync problems: Tempest & MPC5000

    Would it be too much to ask members that request firmware changes actually take 2 minutes of their time to test them out and post feedback in the future?  We have 3 users in this thread who were interested in this feature and not one of them bothered to post a reply and possibly may not have even bothered testing it at all, not even the requester.  This must be incredibly fustrating for TK,  he took time out of a super busy schedule to implement this change and now we'll probably never know if it solved the issue since the OP has since sold their MIDIbox.  Also we now have a duplicate first post across 2 accounts from someone who's probably put off building a MIDIbox SEQ due to concerns about the tightmess of MIDI sync, for 3 years at least! /rant  
  15. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    Is there a polychain feature in the SEQ V4 firmware? In other words the ability to send the single notes from chords over seperate MIDI channels to mono synths. So one midi Channel per note. It would be awesome if there was a polychain setting that lets us selected which of the 16 chnnaels we want to send the notes to.  This video has a good overview of the ways to implement this:
