  1. Sweet thx! Very much appreciated!
  2. I'm looking to build my own custom board, but I want to make sure I have the core concept down for a basic DIN, before I move on to adding more components. Totally new at doing my own circuits, so any input would be appreciated! When I'm done I'll post it all, in case it's useful for anyone. Thanks! basic_din.pdf
  3. Oh, okay. That sounds good. Having the modules was just for a starting point to ensure I'm doing it right, since I've never attempted this before (want to try to squeeze everything I want in with less boards/cabling). I'll try my hand at tracing them and compare it to the files you have. Thanks Phatline & borfo!
  4. Okay, my google fu is not up to par, and this is my first go at KiCad, but: I've been trying to find schematic files I can open in KiCad (i.e. not pdf's) for the Midibox modules. How do you all do this? I "think" it's possible to import the .brd files in KiCad, if I use the nightly build. Not sure what's an efficient work flow.
  5. I had trouble with the MIOS_Studio download for Linux (maybe because I have the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 14). It just didn't work for me. So here's a tutorial on how to make MIOS_Studio (actually MIOS_Studio_Debug) on Ubuntu in case anyone else has the same issue ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Open a terminal. Make a svn folder, and get the recent mios32 repo: cd ~/ mkdir svn svn co svn://svnmios.midibox.org/mios32/ when it's done, unpack juce: cd ~/svn/mios32/trunk/tools/juce unzip unpack_me.zip Go to the mi
  6. Sorry I've not been on the forums in awhile, but yes! If you've got some code to share, I'd love to take a look. I've been trying to accomplish this via the NGC file, but haven't had much luck. I'm currently using the NG app which does everything else I need, just not the keyboard octave shifting... Thanks Robin!
  7. keyboard octave button

  8. Okay so I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how to take the current keyboard range and on each successive press of a button, shift it down by one octave. It has to be relative, because I also want an increment button as well. I'm assuming it'd be something like: event_button id=1 kb_transpose= current_value + 12 event_button id=2 kb_transpose= current_value - 12 Sorry if this has been covered before, (I looked but maybe I didn't search for the right terms?). Thanks for any help!
  9. Ah, forgot to add EVENT_KB... just when I thought I was getting the hang of things... :smile: Thanks TK!

    ...now to debug

    Thanks! It took forever to cut and bend the aluminum, I did it all with a dremel and a drill. Just wish I had put the pots on pcb board rather than screw mounting and wiring by hand. :smile:
  11. Okay. I'm getting closer. I have all the analog pots in place. Well, 64 of them. I still have the aftertouch, mod wheel, and pitch bend to deal with plus all the dio's. Right now I'm trying to figure out the fatar keyboard. I've tried swapping the connections, but for some reason I can't get the midibox to recognize it: In MIOS, I have this: KEYBOARD n=1 rows=8 dout_sr1=1 dout_sr2=2 din_sr1=1 din_sr2=2 din_inverted=0 break_inverted=0 din_key_offset=32 \ scan_velocity=1 scan_optimized=0 note_offset=28 \ delay_fastest=5 delay_fastest_black_keys=0 delay_slowest=10 Maybe I have the connections w

    My super synth project
  13. Ok. Thanks to TK, I've got everything running. My core shows up in MIOS Studio, uploading .hex files works, encoders on my DIN's transmit, and my AINSER64 looks like it's working when I upload the MIDIO128 project (albeit, missing a few pots I've not attached yet). However, when I upload the NG project, my little green LED doesn't light up at all, and nothing happens when I spin any of the pots, so it doesn't look like the AINSER64 board is being recognized. Do I need to do some programming at this point? Totally cool to dive into this, but I wanted to make sure I'm not missing something,
