    Doggo approves!  
  2. Drum track -- just curious about defaults

    RS usually stands for Rimshot and is shared on the same channel as Claves on the TR-08. My guess is it has something to do with TK owning a MIDIbox 808? GM Percussion map  
  3. MIDIbox SEQ new frontpanel idea

    Who wants dust holes in their case? :P  Not everyone is Colin Benders who automatically cleans the dust with his hair when he jams! (Joke stolen from Hawkeye) Looking great, I *think* I like the brighter Blue of the prototype more but I might change my mind when I see the newer colour on the case.    
  4. MBSEQ V4 build with MIDI, CV and DIGITAL OUT

    Amazing work. It's like a "full featured" SEQ V4 with maximum functionality.  
  5. WTB: MB-6582

    Ah cool. didn't realise the base PCB was already assembled.
  6. WTB: MB-6582

    Why not go with the new Power Supply created by Altitude with those Recom voltage regulators so he could use any 12V 2A DC power supply, I use one that was for a Western Digital hardrive and it works fine. Should be plenty available.
  7. Sammich kits on eBay -- legit or bootleg?

    Maybe they bought the PCBs in one of the old group buys?
  8. MIDIbox FM

    Looks like a 2x40 LCD and a Pic based core.
  9. Looks like another MIDI looper popped up on my YouTube feed just now which was shown at Superbooth recently, however it's a far more minimal design than the LoopA v2.  Interestingly enough it almost looks like a MIDbox project with the use of the ALBS knobs! ;)   I have Gaz - (the guy who interviewed them) added on Facebook so will show him the LoopA V2 to see what he thinks. :)
  10. Amazing work guys! This idea was born when I was complaining about the lack of an existance of a  MIDI looper  which was easy to use and had deidcated controls,  I wished something like a Korg Kaoss Pad for MIDI looping existed. After discussing this with Hawkeye (and later with TK and Andy in Munich), Hawkeye started quietly developing the code for such a device. I had no other input into this project apart from the moaning and looks now like all the moaning payed off!...... With Hawkeye and Andy's hard work of course!  The project really has come a long way from the first version Hawkeye developed, pre-defining the clip length seems much more convenient than having to stop the recording after the desired length like in the old version, (like you do on a kaoss pad)   And Andy's hardware skills means we get some really nice mechancial RGB coloured switches in a compact design. If I remember correctly Hawkeye you're responsible for the lovely case design, maybe with some help from Andy? Its really beautiful and sleek considering you don't have much experience at creating cases! And also the note grabbing feature is genius, something I havent really seen in hardware before! I have to have this too and I think i've just realized the perfect use for it in my studio:   Since the hardware shelves are divided into 2 halves with a 4 octave keyboard each, I can have the MIDIbox SEQ V4+ on the left hand side for me to use (in place of where the black Kordbot is now) and the MIDIbox LoopA could be used by a guest on the right hand side as it has less of a learning curve (in place of where the Roland TB-3 is now). Allowing us to jam dawlessly with each keyboard with the aid of MIDI looping from both devices!

  12. Awesome video, I actually thought you were eating oatmeal for breakfast until I realized it was SMT components in a bowl! Don't eat those!

  14. MIDIbox SEQ V4Lite

    @Hawkeye has a finished unit that he might be selling, it just needs a case.
