  1. AIN module (from old version midibox 64)

    Thanks to all readers for the great help. Happily I have now received a full set of excellent boards. Apologies for not replying earlier than this guys. Best wishes to all.    
  2. AIN module (from old version midibox 64)

    Hi gerald.wert. Thanks for the info it sounds good. I went to Mike's site, and I was happy with his stuff, but unfortunately he no longer offers the AIN board, rather, he supplies a later version which requires an analogue to digital converter, it seems to be for a later m-box. It seems that the world has moved on since I first started with my midibox. Thanks for the interest all the same mate, it is appreciated.   =============================================   Hi sparx, thanks for the interest and the offer (?). It looks as if you are my last hope before ditching the project. I live in Wirral U.K. which is a stone's throw from Liverpool. Please let me know the cost to you. Regards.  
  3. AIN module (from old version midibox 64)

    Hi gerald-wert Thanks for the reply and advice. I had looked at that source but was a little concerned: no images of the boards are offered (at least I couldn't find any). What do you think of the quality compared with, say, Smash Tv products?  
  4. Hi mid-iboxing community. A long shot but here goes: I'm looking for a couple of AIN boards  or modules. Smash TV no longer offers them. best regards to all.  
  5. 20 mHz clock Module vs crystal.

    thanks for the reply my friend
  6. hall effect joystick

    Hello.   Anyone tried interfacing one of these input devices?   If so what problems did you encounter?   Regards    
  7. Hello Marxon, thanks for the reply.   I used to know the place where Creative Labs hid gthe darn implimentation chart, but I cannot remember where it was.  I used to use kx-drivers some ten years ago, when I used Windows, but I transferred wholesale to Linux many years hence, and as the kx-drivers are Windows-only software, that option is closed to me. I think maybe its worth a look at that site again just in case they mention that card somewhere or other.   Apologies by the way for the delay in replying.   Regards
  8. Hello fellow Mboxers.   I am trying to obtain the MIDI implimentation chart for my sound card (Creative Labs Audigy 2 zs) and I am informed that it lies in a little file, on one of the disks that came with the card. But try as I might, I cannot locate that file. Creative support don't even list 'MIDI' under a search of their site.   Does anyone know where that particular file is located please?   Any assistance in this matter would help me avoid total insanity.   Regards    
  9. Long shot? PIC16F877-20 wanted

    You are a gentleman Nils.   Regards   Tom.
  10. Long shot? PIC16F877-20 wanted

    Lieber Nils. Der PIC16F877 kam heute Morgen (Di. 12. August). Ich mag deine Verpackung! Es ist sehr sicher. Vielen Dank für eine solche Art und großzügige Geste. Wenn ich Sie schulden kein Bargeld lass es mich bitte wissen, wie viel es ist. Meine besten Grüße an Sie   (apologies for such poor German) Tom.  
  11. Cleaning your Boards

    I have found methylated spirits and an old toothbrush does the job very well, but only as long as good quality solder is employed, because cheap solder uses crappy flux, and meths won't shift it.   A decent protective spray should be used when the boards is finally soldered and cleaned.   regards
  12. Why not use pc keyboards as input devices?

    Thanks for the input everyone.   Thorsten you are correct for PC keyboards, althought I seem to remember a long time ago that some keyboards actually had a lamp fitted to each keycap - admittadly the keyboard was probably designed for a special purpose .   Nasruden I agree, although I'm not sure if more than one button is ever detected in MB.  A small delay I could live with.   nILS you mentioned a name I have not heard for a long time: Cherry keyboards: I would love to find an old one to plug in my PC. Excellent action, and dpdt (double pole double throw) to boot! I have lots of analogue controls, but I am experimenting with the minumum possible panel space: use switches increment up down, depending on a 'shift' button.  Convert button presses into CC data. That sort of thing.   Regards all.
  13. The standard pc keyboard offers lots of buttons for controlling stuff, so why not use them?   Or has this already been done for the MB?    
  14. Flat IDC 40 wire cable wanted

    Found one!
  15. Long shot? PIC16F877-20 wanted
