  1. [SOLD] Midibox kits / components / LCDs / cores / MF

    Bump! Still for sale..... Will consider breaking it up if you want more than a couple of components. 
  2. [SOLD] Midibox kits / components / LCDs / cores / MF

    This is still available!
  3. [SOLD] Midibox kits / components / LCDs / cores / MF

    Pending sale :)
  4. For sale is one whole heap of midibox related stuff. I’ll try to describe what’s available but I’m not for example going to count ~500 LEDs to give an exact number. I’d love to sell this as a bulk pack and as such the price I’m asking is obviously considerably less than what I payed for everything. I’m happy to remove components eg. the motorfaders and LCDs from the chassis if you don’t want the chassis. Documentation and design files are available - the original plan was a SeqV4+16x16BLM on left, and motorised mixer section on right. Along with the main components listed below there is a plethora of connectors, resistors etc.   Price is $300AUD for the lot, plus shipping.   Highlights of what’s available include: 4x (2x used, 2x unopened) Optrex character LCD (805-51850NFQJLGACN); 16x RSAO11M9 motorfaders (installed in chassis, never soldered); 1x full LPC17 (kit+PCB+LPC17) (unopened); 2x MF_NG kits (unopened); 3x Core8 kits (various stage of completion, PICs unopened); 2x Core32 (completed / used); various DIN/DOUT/SDcard/ETH kits (various stages of completion).   Thanks for looking, feel free to ask any questions :smile:
  5. MBBLM schematics and PCB discussions

    Yeah that's the corrected file. I have never tested that version, but it should be fine. Can always make new connectors using wire if it doesn't work out.

    Hey there, hope you saw this      on my wiki page before ordering  :happy:

    I've got no update to date recommendations for you, but these folks do: http://www.tonymacx86.com/home.php http://insanelymac.com/ I gave up on the idea, mostly because I run Windows for various non-DAW reasons and I'm not big on dual-booting.

  9. SEQ remote control for Lemur

    Here's a nearly fully functional Seq remote control for Lemur. It's early days yet, but LED, encoder, button and LCD are all working acceptably. Encoders are set for drag up and down to change. This required some slight mods to the SeqV4 app. I have included a compiled .hex based on the latest svn, as well as the modified source files. My edits are marked: "edited" in a comment. Beyond the mods to get this to work I've also changed the BLM handler for Lemur-BLM users: shift+extra column now selects parameter layer in grid mode. I think this may clash with hardware BLM users' shift+extra column - there needs to be a reliable check for hardware vs. software BLM. Issues: - Special LCD characters from Seq are not available at current, they are replaced with an empty space. - Any UI page with high update rate + content (like exit page while playing) results in large sysex output -> increased CPU usage + bandwidth. I may have to reduce update rate similar to what I did with the LEDs. - LCD text is slightly misaligned, I've asked Liine if they can provide a monospace font option to solve this problem. Instructions: - Import the .jzlib files to your Lemur layout. seq.jzlib is mine, blm.jzlib is TK's BLM layout. - Requires a spare midi port to the Seq. I'm using USB3. Select appropriate midi port in Lemur ie. MIDIIN3/MIDIOUT3. -- Select the appropriate midi target number in Lemur. TK's BLM layout uses Midi target 0. This layout by default uses target 1. -- To alter: change variable midiTarget, and the target for both scripts onNRPN() and onSysex(). -- You may need to reboot seq and lemur to get the setting to switch if it doesn't seem to be working. - The pins and shift registers need to be configured to match your MBSEQ_HW.V4 file. I have included mine for reference. -- Edit these in the receiveLED*() and initBtnPins*() functions. -- You can add your own LEDs/buttons as you wish. There is a limit to the length of a function in Lemur so you may need to add more receiveLED and initBtnPins functions. Future ideas: - Change encoder sensitivity? - New layouts, direct editing of parameters. This is a proof-of-concept mirroring my hardware as much as anything, and I'm sure it can be improved upon. -- I've developed a framework for direct editing of all the parameters of the tracks ie. channel, gate, note, velocity etc. -- I'm not quite sure, however, what the best way of laying that out in Lemur is. I'm yet to think of anything more functional than the BLM. --- Maybe a 'channel strip' beside the BLM? Enjoy! fb-remote-seq-0.1.zip
  10. Casting hard plastic panels?

    I and several others here have had good results with laser cut acrylic from http://www.ponoko.com/ They have a few different partners/outlets around the world, so one may be near to you for cheap shipping.
  11. Least clicky 6mm buttons for BLM

    Hi, no luck with the MEC. There are some other quiet switches around available with proper caps from E-Switch and a few others, mostly orderable from Mouser. However, they are also very expensive. I ended up getting Alps SKPG switches. They are cheap, quiet, and have a nice feel I think. Unfortunately you have to DIY caps for them, which can make them a bit noisier (not to mention being difficult).
  12. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    TK, I think I have stumbled upon a bug during my lemur interface creating..... when accessing the BUTTON_DIRECT_TRACK1...16 feature the track would only change if the new one selected was in the already selected group. I assume this is not the correct behaviour - here is my fix I'm using in my local copy: static s32 SEQ_UI_Button_DirectTrack(s32 depressed, u32 track_button) { static u16 button_state = 0xffff; // all 16 buttons depressed if( track_button >= 16 ) return -2; // max. 16 direct track buttons if( depressed ) { button_state |= (1 << track_button); return 0; // no error } button_state &= ~(1 << track_button); if( button_state == (~(1 << track_button) & 0xffff) ) { // if only one select button pressed: radio-button function (1 of 16) ui_selected_tracks = 1 << track_button; ui_selected_group = floor(track_button/4); //<<<<added } else { // if more than one select button pressed: toggle function (16 of 16) ui_selected_tracks ^= 1 << track_button; } // set/clear encoder fast function if required SEQ_UI_InitEncSpeed(1); // auto config return 0; // no error }
  13. My SEQV4 - Finished electronics !!!

    If you have already uploaded the Seq app to the core, check that J27 (Bootloader Mode jumper) is not connected.
  14. My SEQV4 - Finished electronics !!!

    The SD card won't show up in Windows unless you activate the MSD USB option from the SeqV4. You may try the mass storage device app from here http://ucapps.de/mios32_download.html if you want to test your SD card wiring. Have you verified your wiring for the LCD? Does the SeqV4 show up in MIOS Studio? You should be able to select the midi ports - see if the Seq responds when you type 'help' in the console there.
