  1. Starting MB6582 build

    Do you have a datasheet on the color-cycling LEDs? If a LED is matrix-driven with 1/8th duty cycle, that means on - off - off - off - off - off - off - off -on - off - ... - so they might actually reset their color cycling because they are powered up all the time again? Many greets, Peter

    Hi jingo, thanks, currently it is all only checked in to subversion (especially the hardware configurations), but I asked TK. if he could build a new release for the launch :). Until then, here are the hardware configs: http://svnmios.midibox.org/listing.php?repname=svn.mios32&path=%2Ftrunk%2Fapps%2Fsequencers%2Fmidibox_seq_v4%2Fhwcfg%2F I've also attached the STM32F4 "project.hex", that i've used for the tutorial, so you don't have to build it on your own. But it would probably be best to wait for the official release. Many greets, Peter project-hex.zip

    Thanks a lot, guys! All kudos go to TK., Andy and Adrian, they did all the work - i only had the video camera running while building a SEQ for myself and posted it on youtube, no big effort! :) There are also other good news: we managed to get hold of a stack of 1MB flash variant waveshare STM32F4 MCU boards - the standard is 512KB on the waveshare boards and while that is sufficient for the current SEQ v4+ firmware, Thorsten already said, that he expects to extend the firmware in the future, probably requiring more flash memory than 512KB. Now, as we want to make sure, that every midiphy SEQ v4+ is fully capable of running this awesome sequencer, also for years in the future, we will give away the new 1MB MCUs as a free "addon" to every original Core kit customer now purchasing a UI kit. So, you will have an additional "free" 512KB MCU in stock, that could be used for the LoopA or any other MIDIbox project later on. Thanks a lot for early supporting us, while the other parts were not available. You know who you are! :) Will keep you updated, when the cases are finally available. Happy soldering and many greets! Peter

    Good news! The second and final part of the video tutorial is now available. Thus, we also made the UI essential kit in the shop available, so if you want, you can start soldering the major parts of the sequencer now: https://www.midiphy.com/en/shop-details/119/28/midibox-seq-v4-ui-essential-kit   Regarding the cases, Adrian has finished the first batch of cases and will ship them soon to Germany. We are still missing the perspex windows (display protectors), but those will be sent via express, so we hope to make up a bit of time here. We will make the cases available in the shop, as soon as we receive them, it should be before the holiday season. Many greets and enjoy! :) Peter

    Yes, hard at work with finalizing the video tutorial, my biggest youtube video project ever with 200GB of input video material :-O and nearly 50 chapters! But it is looking very good! Will put it up as soon as possible, after it has been reviewed by Andy.  Adrian also has the first batch of cases in hand, the white case tops are already being printed/labeled, the bottoms still need painting, but it is all on the way. The final LED resistor value adjustments in the BOM are not mandatory, especially if you already ordered the BOM from mouser. They are just a recommendation to match brightnesses of the individual components across the unit better, i.e. we have very slightly reduced the superflux RGB LED brightnesses to match the OLED brightness, we did also reduce the MEC LED brightnesses to better match the superflux RGB brightness and needed different resistor values for the Beat LED, because the new diffused multicolor 5mm LED was a bit bright with the original values. All in all, nothing dramatic, just final touches :). Many greets, Peter

    Really good & uplifting, thanks for sharing! :)
  7. MidiBox 20 years Birthday what a run : )

    Yes, true! Happy birthday, Thorsten!  Many greets, Peter
  8. Starting MB6582 build

    Both are looking great! It is always good to see new MB6582s in the world and that there are still people not hopping on the VST bandwagon! :) Many greets and enjoy your builds! Peter  
  9. 6N137 on MIDI8 and MIDI-IO Boards

    yup, good info! very nice!
  10. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Regarding the wrong part number itself - it was not "wrong" for a long time, there is a fair chance you already have the right parts - i filmed the first video of this LeMEC-R area only two or three weeks ago, back then the BOM tool reported the correct part. The wrong part number was introduced on our side, while updating some final parts, but it is now fixed again, as Andy wrote. @TK. if your build as a beta tester is also affected, please write us a message, will send you the replacement resistor networks, so you can enjoy the new activity matrix! :) Happy weekend! Peter
  11. midi socket 5pol Din 180°

    uuuuh.... i would not dare to sell those! :). Mike, if you want some really cheap ones, search for "Diodenbuchsen" on pollin.de, currently they are sold for 1.9 cents per piece (yes, no typo! :)) Of course i could not hold back and ordered some a while back! What i received was part rusty or they had at least discolored metal and i would only use them for test projects, never for a SEQ or a LoopA :). As i ordered them from my business account, my return options were a bit limited - but as they clearly did not look as shiny as in the picture advertised, I told them, that i was not too happy with their looks, corroded metal and all, and they agreed to send me new ones (they seem to have a lot :), which they promised me would be "flawless". In the end, the ones i received looked about the same and i decided, that it cost me (and poor Andy! :)) already too much time and I stopped that side project! They will be great for a nice "art" photo project with about 2000 MIDI connectors in a single picture, though, but I did not yet have the time for that, hehe! :) In short: you get what you pay for and after this very interesting reorientation by a cheap seller, i am now fully with Andy and Bruno, don't save on the connectors! You might just be recording the best live song in a long time, then a MIDI connection to a synth goes bad and that was that... :). The bad thing here is, with crappy connections you may be introducing "bugs" that are really hard to localize, as they just appear sporadically, you might think there is a software problem somewhere, when indeed, it is just a loose contact. Have a nice weekend, y'all! Peter

    @rosch...soldering and filming again, but the release date might come close towards end of November... (100GB of input video material already of which 30GB need to be shot again, because I made a mistake :)). But Adrian is working on the first batch of cases, and all will be done, we are confident! Also, @TK. is currently also test-building the new UI boards! :) Many greets and have a great weekend! Peter
  13. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @Phatline yup, Andy is right, but can't film all the time :), we have the UI kits in stock, but will delay sales until the docu is available. Also, in parallel @TK. is building an additional UI kit (he received new PCBs and UI parts from us). This way, we want to make sure, that all is perfect before it goes out to you. Adrian has completed the final case changes and we've verbally committed to a first production run of cases, so i hope it will come all together nicely somewhen in November, when the weather is bad and you want to build stuff! :) Many greets and have a great weekend, Peter

    @Antichambre we had no followup communications on the dustcovers, but got to a prinicpal agreement, so they should still be on the table. We'll get to it, when the dust (hehe) of the first UI kit and case sales settles  :) Many greets, Peter
