  1. I have the same "IDC crimping tool" but favour simply using a bench vise. For micromatch MOW cables I leave the polarising tab outside and it works well for me. If you have different tools that work for you, all good! As far as testing other cable types go, there is a plan to build a "backpack"/"shield" that spans across the IDC16s. Then in theory any connector could be wired in. It's a really fun project to build and you can see it working straight away. :)
  2. Hi Alistair, Generally I would only populate parts where there is a silkscreen indicator. This is certainly a double-sided board and the Core is quite a basic circuit, so you won't need any jumpers I am 99% sure. All pin headers seem to be indicated with a J prefix. Any plated holes that don't have a corresponding silkscreen mark are probably vias that join the top and bottom copper planes. You will probably be able to see the copper tracks leading to the vias from the difference in colour. Or if there is no track, the via connects to a 0V/ground plane But yes, it is harder to make o
  3. I can't access your google drive. You can upload images here but the size should be less than 2MB and certain extensions (tiff I think) don't work. PNG/JPEG should be fine. If it has green soldermask and visible traces/copper on both layers I am pretty sure you don't need bridges.
  4. Is it a two-layer board with green soldermask? Then no bridges are required. If it is a single-layer board, find the "quickview" or .brd file on uCapps. Probably the red wires represent the top bridges, with blue as the bottom layer already patterned on the copper side. Feel free to post a picture of your board here to check.
  5. Just post here! I think you would make great friends with Mr. @ssp :)
  6. Here you go! http://ucapps.de/midibox_ng_manual_fs.html Have fun!
  7. You could write an NGR script to address LEDs in sequence: https://github.com/midibox/mios32/tree/master/apps/controllers/midibox_ng_v1/cfg/midiphy It is a very hacky script and could be much nicer with a few for loops. You can use the MIOS terminal command set dout all 1 (or 0 if the cathodes sink into 595 inputs). It really depends on your setup, whether you have transistors, whether you drive LEDs in a matrix etc. You will need a better +5V PSU though as whatever MCU you are using might drop out of regulation with too much draw.
  8. Wow, shiny forum! Nice!

  9. Not sure if it is supported as I think it expects a Standard Control Surface (SCS). To change the "LCD configuration" you first must upload the bootloader app and choose the appropriate LCD type (including OLEDS :) )
  10. Hi! @k2z3k0 does a lot of that though I don't know the exact workflow used http://midibox.org/forums/search/?q=k2z3k0&type=forums_topic&nodes=18 SEQ uses the concept of loopback tracks, so you can control a track with another one. Best, Andy
  11. @TK. makes sense! I tried to make the wCore etc. compatible with the DISCO so no surprises!
  12. Some people noticed that the LoopA can get stuck in booloader hold mode. As a potential remedy, install resistors R101 and R102. If you don't have the exact values it doesn't really matter. JPA0 should be left unjumpered except if you want to enforce bootloader hold. With the resistors installed the state of PA0 is properly defined rather than floating. If you don't notice the issue, no need to change it! The BOM is updated to reflect this.
  13. Congrats and thanks for the kind testimonial! Totally right about SMT not being the devil, well as long as it's conceived for hand soldering in the design. :) #36 is your serial number
  14. I'm very glad; that's a great resolution! :)
  15. Awesome job and thanks for the testing and feedback! Let us know how it goes with the light|shield flex :)
  16. I don't think a custom naming is possible and every synth will likely use different names. But how about editing the respective label file? https://github.com/midibox/mios32/blob/master/apps/sequencers/midibox_seq_v4/core/seq_cc_labels.c Then recompile the app with the change implemented.
  17. Nice idea! Are they 0402 parts? Were they soldered by hand or preassembled?
  18. I think we could use a beta tester :) Peter will be in contact!
  19. Very well done and thanks for the beers!?! Hope you can enjoy one yourself -- during the next jam? Best, Andy
  20. Great tip! Not sure exactly what temperature you need for heatshrink (maybe around 100°C is fine), but if you use a low airflow rate and just bring the nozzle as close as needs be you should be good.
  21. What other CAD software experience do you have? If it's all new and you'd rather not learn, Protocase is still okay. With the possible costs of e.g. a Fusion subscription and a few design iterations of the first attempts you do, probably that $340 is pretty good. If you want to develop your skills and do more case work in the future, definitely go down that route. Another option would be to design the panel as a PCB, have it fabbed and find a matching case for it e.g. the PT-10. Yet another option is to design an acrylic case that can be laser-cut in 2D and snaps together.
  22. For what project do you need an enclosure? Protocase is awesome and very reasonably priced for one-offs where they take care of everything for you. A great company to work with. The other way would be to machine your own but this requires tools and skills on your part
  23. Awesome job! Almost forgot your serial number #34
