  1. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Hey some of us lazy beta testers were delayed due to components missing in the previous BOMs, just saying! ;) Also I'd rather wait to have my hands on the case so I'll know exactly how long to cut the ribbon cables or cables that connect the boards together.    
  2. midiphy SEQ v4+

    This question was asked on the midiphy Facebook Page. Anyone know the answer? Can you have different timings on each track?
  3. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Yup, you will need to build an AOUT module i think and connect it to the DB-25 connector on the back.
  4. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Finished the Hot Air Soldering for SMD Components video today, for those who might want an easier alternative to drag soldering SMT components, or who are just not confident or comfortable with it.     Its a bit rough around the edges but any feedback is appreciated.  When soldering the resistors theres a nasty shadow and I probably won't rerecord it but hopefully it helps people.    
  5. midiphy SEQ v4+

    It's only now I realised it has 4 midi ins and 8 midi outs after Hawkeye pointed it out to me!  I think originally Andy in the other thread you were going for 2 midi ins and 6 midi outs? Just wanted to thank you for giving us the extra ports. Now I can easily hook up 2 keyboards a drum pad and the LoopA V2 to the input ports when it's done. :)
  6. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Best way to buy Hawkeye a beer is to visit him in Munich! *2 beers maximum applies* ;) Guys, I was wondering if all the feature requests TK has implemented in the firmware have been documented anywhere besides on the thread? I haven't read through the MIDIbox manual on ucapps and the wiki extensively to make sure. It would be awesome to have an up to date manual for the SEQ V4(+). Since I've a lot of free time I could probably help out with that aspect.
  7. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Was just saying to Hawkeye that I might do an SMT soldering tutorial using hot air and solder paste if you guys think it would be useful. That might make it more accessible for people as I don't even trust myself with the drag method using an iron! Hot air stations can be bought for pretty cheap these days (about 30 euro) and it certainly takes less skill imo. It was actually recommended to me by Sauraen for the MIDIbox Quad Genesis and I quite like it.  I can't wait to build this guys, the MB-6582 set a benchmark for eye candy for a MIDIbox project, the eye candy and feel of the SEQ V4+ has set a new benchmark imo.   
  8. MIDIbox SEQ new frontpanel idea

    Excellent news! Poor Hawkeye is working so hard on this project and so late into the night, that he could barely message me yesterday! You know a German is really tired when they start adding loads of full stops instead of spaces!  That would not be tolerated normally with adequate amounts of rest!  The amount of hard work you, Andy and TK have put into the SEQ platform is immense, and I've no doubt in my mind that it will be worth it and will cause a spike in the interest and users of MIDIbox. Keep up the great work guys.

    Doggo approves!  
  10. 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  
  11. 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.    
  12. MBSEQ V4 build with MIDI, CV and DIGITAL OUT

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

    Ah cool. didn't realise the base PCB was already assembled.
  14. 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.
  15. Sammich kits on eBay -- legit or bootleg?

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

    Looks like a 2x40 LCD and a Pic based core.
  17. 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. :)
  18. 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!

  20. 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!
  21. [S] Midibox, Ambika and assorted

    Message sent re: the Ambikas.  
  22. MIDIbox SEQ V4Lite

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

    The files you need are in the mb-6582 Wiki.   http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=wilba_mb_6582
  24. MIDIbox SEQ new frontpanel idea

    Ah cool, a panel that blanks out the holes is a good compromise.  The real fun of the early release design will begin when we’re giving feedback on fonts for the labeling! 
  25. MIDIbox SEQ new frontpanel idea

    Hi Andy will there be an option for just the holes at the back of the case and none underneath? For those of us who want a desktop only version. I'd imagine its slightly cheaper too to have only one set of holes cut out too.
