  1. For me here in the UK the pricing and MOQ meant that i had to get a lot of things either from ebay or ali express as the pricing in the UK was far too much. For example i wanted some 6mmx6mm square led tact switches, in the UK they were almost $5 each equivalent. I got them from Ali express for $10 for 20 of them. same with the mini 7 segments, encoders and components. In the UK its V.A.T on everything, then customs etc and forwaring postage costs with VAT added. I just got a quote in for one of my pcbs, its a 4 layer pcb 250mmx250mm it was £90 for the pcb and then a further £140 for the
  2. perhaps you need to look at the blm then?

    mbng work in progress

    working on a 4 layer pcb in Altium, getting there, this is for my MBNG project
  4. hmm.. i probably ask more questions that I already know the answer to.. it just takes me a little while to catch up with my brain. So i am looking at the question, so am i correct in you want to build a controller to control a drum machine plugin in logic? Please bear in mind I dont use logic i use presonus studio one, i havent turned my mac on in years and its an old G4 mirror door!! You could have a look through my thread in the MBNG section, it shows me learning the basics and progressing slowly, making mistakes and asking for help. I dont always understand it straight a
  5. i had another go at trying to get the encoder to switch between each function as the buttons would however when the encoder changed to another function it didnt enable that as if i had pressed the button "on" i can go back and fore the 3 displays and then press each button to activate the corresponding value to change with the other encoder would i use a "soft" button or an event sender so that when i turn the selection encoder from its first point "lfo mod" to its second point "lfo res" and when it is on the second automatically put it in a "button on" state so i can then use the se
  6. slight issue. I have managed to hook up the individual leds tonight and check the code, its all working however using this: EVENT_BUTTON id= 4 fwd_id= LED:4 type= Meta meta= SetBankOfHwId:1 range=1:1 button_mode= OnOnly # "Bank 1" is fine, and the led it forwards to lights up, however when you press the next button: EVENT_BUTTON id= 5 fwd_id= LED:5 type= Meta meta= SetBankOfHwId:1 range=2:2 button_mode= OnOnly # "Bank 2" led 5 lights up but led 4 also stays lit, what would i use to turn off the previous led? in the past i used radio groups and maps leds.
  7. Decided to keep the buttons required for the selected item value change. It allows me to add space for a second panel to cater for these and also the menu system linked to a small oled. also a couple of other things i want to add now.
  8. put pictures of yours up, the front and back of the board, make sure they are clear photos. The only way to know if anything isnt right is by photos,of the pcb both side. are you sure have the right midi in and out selected in mios studio? Thnigs to do 1: take good clear pictures of the pcb top and bottom 2: what midi interface are you using? 3: screenshot of mios studio with your midi interface connected and the in out ports shown setup. 4: try sending the hex file and take a screenshot of the mios studio window when this is done if it fails or not. Then we
  9. i posted in your other thread.
  10. re flash the bootloader onto pic using your pickit2 fit the pic into your mb_ng make sure you have polarity correct pin 1 to pin 1 once you have done that you need to connect a midi interface to your computer, and connect the in and out midi ports to the midi in and out on the mb_ng module. MB_NG OUT----> COMPUTER MIDI INTERFACE IN COMPUTER MIDI INTERFACE OUT----> MB_NG IN open Mios Studio If you are using port 1 in and out on your midi interface then select the interface in the drop down menu for in and also for out then you load the mb_
  11. Ok this is working fine now i can use an encoder to select up and down over 3 displays. but I cant figure out how to have a single button replace the need for the three test buttons here: EVENT_BUTTON id= 4 type=Meta meta=SetBankOfHwId:1 range=1:1 button_mode= OnOnly # "Bank 1" EVENT_BUTTON id= 5 type=Meta meta=SetBankOfHwId:1 range=2:2 button_mode= OnOnly # "Bank 2" EVENT_BUTTON id= 6 type=Meta meta=SetBankOfHwId:1 range=3:3 button_mode= OnOnly # "Bank 3" What would be better is not to have a button and when the selection encoder ( encoder id 5) is turned to
  12. i had another idea on this, instead of having 16 buttons to select each 3 digit display...... is it possible to use an encoder with push switch instead of all the buttons? give each button a range value so its not just changing per indent step. using the buttons it works fine and has been tested. it also forwards to an Led to show its the active one Is it possible to replace the buttons with an encoder instead? or could I use a pot and set the values ranges per display? display 1: range 1-10 display 2: range 11-20 display 3: range 21-30 In effect it becomes

  14. Just to let you know I applied a variation of this example today, and it worked first time!!! i had to take the fwd to led aout for now as i only have the dout matrix running, but the selection for each 3 digit display from a button and a single encoder works.
