  1. Sammich kits on eBay -- legit or bootleg?

    This looks like one of them. apparently some issues with them ;) 
  2. Sammich FM

    Is this one of those eBay / Hong Kong kits? Anybody know what the deal is with those?
  3. TPD Dots

    Looks fine to me. Track 4 is selected. Half way in the length of the sequence.
  4. midiphy SEQ v4+

    It seems that my suggestion for a clarification about the name was not that stupid, because you all explain the SEQ V4+ a little different. How can the V4+ be the new UI/frontpanel when I am already running it with a Wilba frontpanel? The way I see it, V4+ is the firmware version that only runs on a STM32F4 core. It can be used with a Wilba frontpanel and a latigid on frontpanel just with a different HW file. Some new functions will work on both frontpanels, like it already does with CC layers for drum tracks, and some new functions will probably only work or work best with the latigid frontpanel. Therefor it makes sense to me to be clear about the name. From the changelog: MIDIbox SEQ V4+ is a special firmware variant for the STM32F4 core.  
  5. E-Switch TL 1100 failing

    Thanks Bruno, I might try those. :) 
  6. E-Switch TL 1100 failing

    I have a SEQ V4 with Wilba frontpanel. I bought the parts kit from SmashTV so I assume they are genuine E-Switch. Now I have to press some of them twice or at least harder than before for them to work. I see that others are talking about "failing buttons" and assume that this is the same problem they have. Is it the switch itself, or maybe the cap that "gives in" so you have to press harder? Could it be that I have a mix of switches with different operating force (F160 , F260) ? Does anybody have a suggestion for a fix or a replacement switch?    Cheers, Hal
  7. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Hi Bruno, I'm OK thanks, and you? OK, yes I see. But what can we call this version of the MB SEQ V4+ It's just to find a name so we can discuss and troubleshoot the different versions of the MB SEQ V4+ I did not mean to disrespect the webshop :)    
  8. midiphy SEQ v4+

    This is really great work guys. I am always impressed by all the talent, knowledge and creativity in this community. Could I suggest that we call this just the Midiphy, so we can differentiate between the Wilba and the Midiphy MB SEQ V4+ If I understand correctly the Midiphy is a new frontpanel. The MB SEQ V4+ relates to the STM32F4 Core and can be used with the Wilba frontpanel, at least that is what I am doing now. This is no criticism, I am just pointing out a possible area for misunderstanding in the future.   My buttons are staring to fail as well, and playing live this weekend it was a bit annoying.  I have a few questions: - Can I have my @ilmenator  TPD and BLM 16x4 connected to my V4+ with the Midiphy frontpanel? - Can I use my STM32F4 Core, 2x MIDI I/O, 2xQuad IIC and AOUT_NG with the Midiphy frontpanel? - Will there be a DWG/DXF/FPD cad file available to design and order custom frontpanels?   Cheers, Hal
  9. USB Host support for MBHP_CORE_STM32F4

    Yes this works with the V4 and V4+ Connect a USB MIDI controller with a OTG adapter to the STM32F4 core Micro USB and Bob's your uncle ;)
  10. MBSEQ V4 build with MIDI, CV and DIGITAL OUT

    Very nice!
  11. Congratulations! \o/ Very cool gadget. Looks super nice and "blingy"
  12. Record replacing notes...what did I do?

    I think this will fix my problem from here  http://midibox.org/forums/topic/20578-jam-mode-record-cc-filter-sweeps/ Is it possible to get this fix in an uncompiled version, or is it only in this precompiled version in the link? Cheers, Hal
  13. [WTB] OPL3 module PCB

    Hi, Does anybody have an OPL3 module PCB they want to sell me ? If you have chips with it, or it's already populated I am also interested Cheers, Hal  
  14. Low sound level sammichFM

    Thanks for the suggestion. I removed the 12 resistors for the voltage dividers, and replaced R52,53,54,55 with jumpers. Now it's louder, same level as my MBFM with your mod. I do notice some distortion with all 4 operators on full volume though, so nILS design make sense and is probably "cleaner". I guess I just got used to the sound and level of my MBFM. At least my patches now sound the same :) Is this maybe why the original design has amplification in two stages with the 3 TL074, to prevent the clipping and still get a high output level?       
  15. it sounds to me that you are into making electronic music, not electronics this place is mostly for those that want to do both I don't think anybody here do this to save time or money. For many of us MIDIbox is a hobby / passion / obsession ;) If you need a MIDI controller, Novation makes one for every need If you want a similar sequencer, Sequentix Cirklon seems like "the second best in class"
