  1. midiphy SEQ v4+

    I Thanks a lot for the info. So one could also go for switch caps that only have a transparent indicator line, similar to the ones on the TR-909 or the Cirklon. I personally would prefer that, as it gives a more focused indication. A friend of mine has the TR-8, and when we used it live in a club, it was annoyingly too bright (IIRC there's a dimmed setting, though, but it was still very bright). I also wonder if both the Matias switches and the round buttons won't outshine the displays? I was asking about the labels because in the old thread, the idea for the transparent switch cap only came up in conjunction with the question on how to label the switches. Doing away with the Menu Shortcut names seems like a good idea, as these are shown on the screens as soon as you hit menu, and it will promote customization (on my Wilba panel, 16 is labelled "SYS EX" - not something I ever used, I put the remix function there). I for one would still like to see numbering from 1 to 16 in between the Matias rows or between the top row and the encoders. Anything that helps identifying a step at a glance is good IMHO.

    Is my understanding correct that the final production case will be printed with the functions of the smaller round buttons, and that there's gonna be a set of labels to put into the transparent Matias knob caps? How is the "light spill" with the fully transparent knob caps? Would one ideally paint the caps' lower section from the inside (like an R/C car lexan body) so only the top ( where the printed inlay is transparent) lets trough light?

    I will gladly help out on that, too! I saw pictures of Midibox meet-ups back in the PIC-days - are there anymore of those happening? If so, I would be delighted to join.

    Hey Peter, I measured 43,8cm x 15,7cm x 8,8cm (WxDxH) on mine, including the rubber feet. Encoder knobs top and the (rounded) edge at the back are just about the same height.  You are actually using very tall encoder knobs on the pics. The tapered, low profile ones on the other famous sequentixcer do handle very well i gotta add! Thanks for info and have a nice weekend, too! BTW, do you not drink beer? Otherwise you should add a "buy Hawkeye a beer" signature, too. I'll also buy you an Apfelschorle if need be.

    Could you post the dimensions of the unit? It looks like it might stand a bit taller than the Wilba Seq in the Heidenreich case, and in my setup (read: table with rack on top), there's not much spare room above it. When not doing music, I like to slide it underneath the rack. Thanks a lot!

    Well that's alright with me, too. Might be cool for spot erasing / overdub recording etc.

    Nice one - I often wished to have just a single trigger out 'on board' to trigger a ducking gate for some sidechaining on a mixing desk bus insert!

    Stunning work indeed. Are you planning an "Analog Expansion Box" with CV/Gate/Triggers/Clocks in the same design? And what's the green illuminated port underneath the USB B? And the 1/8" jack? Footswitch input?

    What have you set it to?

    It would also be great if one would be able to control track settings from within the track itself, eg. have a layer control the Delay Note +/- setting or the delay division. I find that using a second track to control a parameter of the first track eats up tracks fast (even more so if you use more than one, eg. with different lengths) and it's hard to remember which track did what. And the first step into that direction is, it seems to me, kinda taken already since TK added the transposition control for chord tracks from the same track. But maybe we have to hold back a bit with more feature suggestions (taking to myself, mainly ;-))!
  11. External CC control - PROBLEM SOLVED

    I don't think it's implemented, at least I didn't find it on the list here: http://wiki.midibox.org/doku.php?id=mididocs:seq:beginners_guide:start#appendix_4_mbseqv4_cc_implementation

    You mean some kind of meta-track that could control several other tracks instead of just one track? This would be great indeed! It would also be great to have some kind of a "horizontal mode" that would show one parameter for all 16 tracks. So EG you have all the dividers or directions or lengths or delays times at the same time - this might work well as an extension to the Mixer mode, I think. When I first got the Sequencer I actually thought you could use the Mixer for this, as in "just set to the appropriate CC that modifies the track parameter, eg. CC1 for controlling the Morphing on all channels".

    You are right, at the moment, the Note Off always gets sent when the note would finish without muting the track. An option to cut off the note immediately would indeed be handy!  On the same note: is there an Panic or All Notes Off button somewhere?

    You are welcome!

    So if you rack it, you'll have to do the labelling yourself on some masking tape or design a sticker. Maybe it's smart to have non-permanent port labelling: the function of some of the MIDI DIN-Plugs changed on mine when I exchanged the LPC17 Core with the STM32 and MIDI IO-Boards.
