  3. Hi. I had an accident when moving and managed to mess upp my Midibox SID v2 (dual 6581 SID) completely. I have now fixed the damaged parts but had to get a new PIC since the original was broken. I have burned the PIC with the latest bootstrap and also uploaded the latest MIOS. I have also downloaded the latest MBsidv2 zip file and then proceeded editing the 6581.asm file to my liking. I am currently trying to build a HEX file without any luck. Last time I built a HEX was 2-3 years ago so I've updated myself using the info in this link: http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/windows_toolchain_quickstart All I get is and error message wich is displayed in this picture: sorry for the blurry picture I am using a Frost computer (Quad Core 3.4Ghz) running Win7 home. All related files needed for compiling HEX are installed at these directories: C:fmbs2rc18 C:gputils C:MinGW/MSYS C:SDCC Whats happening here? I must be doing something wrong, I just wonder what?
  4. just to let you know...

    Hahahahaha :D Getting anything built during all this RL-stuff?
  5. VIDEOS Foona live @ Dekår TungGung

    Thank you stryd! :) We had so much fun it should be illegal haha. Since this last gig I've felt i needed something more on the desk. I think i'll have to make a triggerboard very soon. Time to browse ucapps again! :)
  6. Hey people!!! I performed a gig at friday 29'th of may @ Dekår in Eskilstuna Sweden. Of course I was performing on my Midibox64 "Dubmasta". My gig was right after the Swedish famous band Kultiration. Brother Arize from the P.T.C-Crew was handeling my Soundlab dubsiren. Sebastian from Rebelmusic.se wrote about this evening and posted the videos on their blog site. Check it out: VIDEOS Foona Live @ Dekår [Rebelmusic.se] I seriously hope you will dig this! Love an' Blessin's /Foona
  7. Yes, it is a spring reverb! :) I purchased the spring tank from America using Ebay. And then i build the preamp and mixer and put it all in a wooden box with aluminum panels. Check out my blog post about this unit if you wish. Springa Blog post :)
  8. Hello Midibox Forum! I know it didn't go to well the last time i was here and i want to apologise for that. Without this forum and the members residing in it i wouldn't have been able to get this far. So i wanted to make up for it in some way, and this is what i did and constantly keep on doing. Everytime people ask about my DIY gear i make shure i mention the MidiBox forum and Ucapps, and there is also proof of this. :D I mention it on Youtube, Myspace and now also on my newly started blog. Foona's Offical Studio5 Blog I hope this can mend some of the stuff i said and did in the past. I really enjoyed being here and i hate to know that people resent me because of my previous childish behaviour. I have been away for a long time now and i wanted to tell you what I have been up to all this time. Iv'e mostly been busy producing music and working with my crew. I have however built a few new things but no Midibox related stuff, just basic analog stuff (not as easy for me to find new ways to brake). Iv'e updated my MySpace quite a bit, gotten some sponsors to work with me etc. Foona's MySpace Iv'e also reworked my studio, put up two videos on youtube where im using the Midibox Dubmasta and other DIY gear to dub tracks among other things. In one of the videos my Hamond Spring reverb tank can be seen and heard. Foona's Youtube Channel Yesterday my new Roots and Dub album "Foona's In'I Sound" was released finally! This is what i have prepared for all this time. Though im gonna have to dissapoint Stryd_one. There are no cowbells in my album, but i promise to include some in the next one! ;) The site is in Swedish language but look for a brown button att the bottom of the "Foona's In'I Sound" post. The text on the button says "Ladda Hem Albumet". To grab a copy of your own just go to: Foona's Album and Artist presentation @ Rebelmusic.se "The page might take a little while to load." I found out quite recently that i allready existed on Last.Fm so i created a manager account so i can manage that too now. Foona on Last.FM Well thats a little bit of what iv'e been doing so far. Again, BIG UP to all members that where there for my during my Dubmasta build. Your support will never be forgotten! The Dubmasta was one of the corner stones of what iv'e done lately, and we did it together. And that is what i feel this forum is all about! THANK YOU MIDIBOX FORUM!!!
  9. Commodore 64 Laptop

    I seriously need one to survive! :D
  10. Ah! So it's a secret. What ever it is your building, im sure it is craaazy! 8)
  11. Hey man! Nice to see your still here! Any news? Built something crazy?  :D
  12. :D Makes me more than happy you like my work guys!! Means alot to me!!! If you check my blog again im writing about a Dub colab i did very recently with a Roots group called "Ylijali". :)
  13. Thanks man! :) It feels like im making some progress. I just hope i can keep on attracting people with my music.
  14. Hey Guys! I can see that you all are working hard with your projects! And so have I with mine. I wanted to let you all know that I have updated my Studio5 Blogg. I am celebrating that my fans have given me 10K profile views. And to really celebrate, im doing this by giving away a free track. So far "Bring Em Down" has only been available on my Youtube and MySpace. If you want your own high quality copy, then go grab one. :) Foona's Official Studio5 Blog
  15. Thank you Goblinz! :) I am happy to be back!
  16. Stryd_one: Lets face it, i just couldn't stay away. Iv'e been lying restless many nights thinking about it. Im glad im welcomme back into the mix! Thank you! You can see a post about the Hammond spring tank i built on my Studio5 blog, and i'll be putting up a blog about a Dual Rebote 2.5 delay unit i build. More things to follow after that i promise. Cimo: life in Sweden is really nice now. Today snow started falling again, and i dooo loooove the snow! If there is enough snow i'll put up some pics of this cowboy building a snowman. ;) Things are really starting to look up over here. Im trying to make a new video to put up on youtube and right now my D.A.W is acting up. Im not too good with this "patience" thingy haha. But i learned a great deal about that during the Dubmasta build. :) Hopefully it will all go well in the end!
  17. UPDATE: 08-05-08 Title has been updated from "Want t make a Midibox 64, need guidance.", to "The Dub Master MIDIbox 64 -work in progress- New post showing some pics of my progress. ------------------------- Hello again people! As im waiting for my MIDIbox SID parts, im looking at the ucapps site. Iv'e decided that the MIDIbox 64 is the right midi controller for me. Im reading: "It is extremely expandable, you can use it as low-cost controller without display or buttons with just 8 or 16 pots (see here), or you can build a full-featured controller with LCD, 64 pots/faders, 64 buttons, 64 LEDs, a lot of BankSticks for using external banks" Are these the only options? All i need and want is 64 control elements (faders) together with full bankstick configuration, LTC for midi activity and midi thru option, and a LCD display. In this case i would only need a LCD, a Core with a PIC18F452, two AIN's and a LTC. Would this configuration work? Also, for the banksticks. 24LC256 or 24LC512?
  18. Well, this is my half finished box people. Hope you like the design. There are some stuff that im not too pleased with, but i'll be able top correct that later on. Either way, i present to you my "Mb DubMasta Cbs 3.978". "Cbs" stands for "Cowboy Style" hahaha :D Oh yeah, all i have is this crappy cam on my cellphone. This is why pictures differs in coloring and light..also a bit fuzzy.. Old school sloapig case design made out of oak wood. Stained with plain brown staining and then clear coated. Im telling you, this beast wasn't made for easy dusting haha. As you can see it's pretty much laid out as a mixing desk. 25 faders - Volume 1 fader for each channel on my virtual mixer + 1 fader dedicated for main mix/volume 24 rotary pots - Pan 1 panning pot for each channel on my virtual mixer 8 rotary pots - Fx These are dedicated for Fx remote, like tweaking reverbs or dub delays etc etc.. It's been noticed in one of my eralier posts, that the rotary pots are space to close together. And they are :D I'll build a new case when it's time for it, and when i have the dough for it. Also if i feel it's absolutely necessary of course. :) The ass of my Cowboy style DubMasta. Delicious isn't it? I feel like taking a bite out of it.. Main power panel. Simple switch and a DIN-5 connector. Main Midi in and outs, from the core. And the LTC MIDI connnectors and LED's. Im still very satisfied with the "Stryper-looking" cable. Goes together well with the box and PSU. Well, in this half working state, it's loaded with the MB64 app. I configured the pot mapping using mk_syx way. As Stryd pointed out to me, this is not the right app for this kind of box. And he's right. This is just a workaround due to the fact that my gig is in only 4 days now, and i need the pots and faders most of all. The PSU case is made out of oak wood and stained in plain brown stain. Just like the case for the DubMasta. Now i did not design this PSU case myself, a carpenter friend did that. I only provided him with the measurements. I told him to put some cutted tracks in it, but did not specify how many or where. So this is what he did, and im so pleased i let him design it himself. Yup, that's just beautyfull. And here they are together in harmony...half finished harmony. :D There are also 41 push buttons on the box, together with 24 LED's. (27 counting the 2 LTC LED's on the back. + plus the RED power LED in the upper right corner of the box) These are not functionall. There functions was supposed to be like this. 25 buttons - Mute 1 mute button for each channel on my virtual mixer 25 LED's - Mute indicators LED's dedicated to indicate muted or unmuted channel. Also collor scheme from the left to the right. 8 GREEN - 8 YELLOW - 8 RED - 1 YELLOW 16 buttons - Triggers These where meant to be used as triggers, for stuff like FX on/off. One shot samples, drummachine etc etc.. Iv'e installed 1 banckstick in there, cuz i have no need for more. Im using no menu buttons (DIN's don't work anyway haha). I just needed to set all the CC#'s once and then always use that setup. This is how i work. So there you have it people, my "Mb DubMasta Cbs 3.978". I humbly bow before the MIDIbox community for making this project come true. Now im signing of to go prepare myself for "the Dubbening". Respect to you all. /Foona
  19. Well, im not gonna get the DIN or the DOUT's ready in time for the gig, so im gonna use the box in the state it is now. The way it went today, im not even shure if i ever finish this box. At least i have the most important parts working, pots and faders. And that means i can Dub. :D This is the last MIDIbox project im ever gonna do, so i want to thank all of you that brought me tech help and support. I especially want to thank these guys: Stryd_one, Cimo, /tilted/, Bugfight, DavidBanner, buhler, Chuck, SLP, MTE, nILS Podewski, Seppoman, dstamand, Narwhal, TK, SmashTV, t_xen, baconjuice.. If i left somone out, it's not because im not greatfull for your support, is't just that my memory aint too good. Im just a simple cowboy. I wish you all the best of luck with all your projects. I'll throw upp some pictures of my half finished box as soon as i have time for it. I got a gig to go get ready for. ;) Love an' Blessin's /Foona
  20. I used my eyes only. I just looked at the pictures, and then i made the board. ;D
  21. I just built this http://nuxx.net/gallery/v/stuffivemade/dip40picadapter/ I hooked it up to my PicKit2 and uploaded bootloader to a PIC18F452 with success! :)
  22. I checked the tracking number for my package today, and it looks like im recieving the PicKit2 today. While i wait im going to make the adaptor board. Hopefully i'll have the box up and running later today. If i don't screw up that is. 8) <add-edit> I know add-editing is a bad habit, and im sorry stryd. But im only doing this to punish you for the fact that you turned my marriage proposal down. :P Update from the chatroom. Chuck was nice to test burning a PIC18F542 with his PicKit2, using a simple adaptor. Bootloader got in there alrigh. Chuck then procceded with uploading app using midi and this got throught too.
  23. sorry Stryd, haven't updated this thread. Im way beyond that now. I got a translator and i understood what to do. Either way i couln't get PC to find the PIC burner. Im going to borrow money and purchase a PicKit2, USB pic programmer. While i wait, im sending the brand new untouched PIC to the guy with the ICD2. Im currently trying to put myself into a trance, so i can procced with finishing the tracks, im supposed to be bombing at the gig. At least the MB64 wiring looks to be set now, so all i need is a brain for it. Thanx guys for your support!
  24. As soon as i plugged the MBHP PIC burner to my PC's paralell port, the RED LED lit up. And when i start the P18 software, i get the message that it can't find a programmer. So i went back to ucapps and read this: "If the "programmer detected" message doesn't appear, you can check the paralell port with a simple test adapter which is described in the help file of P18" Good good i thaught........NOT! The help file is in german, and i can't read it....
  25. bootloader is not working. PIC wont let me upload stuff.
