  1. Stephan Bodzin live @ Piz Gloria for Cercle

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

    Yes, true! Happy birthday, Thorsten!  Many greets, Peter
  3. 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  
  4. 6N137 on MIDI8 and MIDI-IO Boards

    yup, good info! very nice!
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. And the final SEQ v4+ case! :)

    From the album Hawkeyes MB stuff

    This one uses a left-hand jog and activity matrix configuration, with green/red ("emerald green") color scheme! :) Enjoy and many greets! Peter
  8. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @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
  9. 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
  10. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @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
  11. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Thanks guys, all credits go to Andy (for the design), Adrian (for the case) and TK. (for the software)! Just wanted to inform you that filming of the second part of the video tutorial has finally started. It will still take a bit of time to get to a production length of another estimated 2 hours (or maybe 3 hours with case installation and wiring informations), but we're on it! :) When it's done and published, the UI kits are ready for sale, we're stocked up and received another batch of OLEDs from Taiwan this week. Have a great weekend! Many greets, Peter
  12. dipCoreF4.002.jpg

    no problem, had strange behaviour on the gallery lately too. we might need a forums software upgrade soon! :) will try to fix it! Many greets, Peter
  13. Unified midiphy SEQ v4+ case backside

    From the album Hawkeyes MB stuff

    including labels and an installed blinding plate, that covers the lower case options, that are available for optional rackmount mode. Fantastic work again by Hallik Engineering! Enjoy! :) Many greets, Peter
  14. midiphy SEQ v4+

    As promised, new photo session images for your consumption! :) The first image shows the installed blanking plate, that covers the holes that are necessary for rackmount mode, The second image shows the new "shade of blue", exactly as we wanted, it came out very nicely from the paint shop, thanks Adrian! The final image image shows everything in action with a new, maybe more eye-friendly color scheme. The activity matrix in this picture is currently in "TPD emulation" mode. There might be more modes later on, if we are allowed to add them to the firmware ;-). Hope you like it, we definitely do! :) Many greets, Peter  
  15. From the album Hawkeyes MB stuff

    ... now with labels, in the final shade of blue! :) Many greets and enjoy! Peter
  16. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    @Rio blm8x8: minimal bitmask changes for the midiphy frontpanel matias switch superflux backlighting, conditional logic not active for a standard v4 tpd: added additional mode for slightly different midiphy frontpanel mini led matrices, conditional logic is not active for a standard v4 (+ optional external tpd) Many greets, Peter
  17. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    @Rio no worries, it was only a "minimal invasive" patch that, as Andy said, would not touch or affect any non-midiphy SEQ v4+ variants. We visited TK today, thus the subversion commit comment "for personal discussion", which also had a smiley behind it. I tested the patch on my side thoroughly and expected it to be accepted by TK., but if it would not have been, it would have "cost" only a single subversion commit number to rollback. Many greets, Peter
  18. midiphy SEQ v4+

    As a small update to everyone interested - the new v4+ user interface hardware kit as been handed over to TK. today by Andy and myself. He had a look at a completed v4+ (pictures soon!), and will validate the UI boards once again from his side, we want to be sure, that all works nicely before sending out the new kit to users. I will start filming the construction video tutorial of the UI boards by next week. It will take a while until the tutorial is ready, but we will get there. Meanwhile, Adrian should be able to start production in bigger quantities, as the case looks really good! Many greets and have a great weekend! Peter
  19. Starting MB6582 build

    @the_duckchild Thanks, and which kind of color change LEDs are you thinking of, would you have a product link? The MB6582 only supports single color LEDs everywhere, but you can use different colors of LEDs in different sections of the frontpanel, although many people prefer to stay with a single color. If the "color changers" only require two pins and then internally do the color changing, then they could work, if they are standard 3mm LEDs, although your build would probably be blinking madness :) Many greets, Peter
  20. [solved] Midi Router not routing buses

    Hi there, great build! I am not 100% sure, but I think, internal busses can not be used for MIDI Routing. Even if the interfaces are "there", i have not done it before and am not sure, if it is supported, TK. knows more! Afaik busses are only used for Transposition, Arps and Jamming and always effect internal other tracks only. I'd be pleased if someone would correct me, if i am wrong! But: what you can do is have a look at FX -> Duplication, this should fit your needs perfectly! I've used it successfully to send out same notes to two samplers on different ports, and you can also edit what is sent, to which port should be duplicated and how many channels should be active during duplication. This can be used for nice effects, like sending alternating notes to different synths and such :) Many greets, Peter
  21. CEM3379 Stereo VCF assembled board

    Nice one, and welcome back, Schrabikus! Many greets, Peter
  22. CC-Looper (4ch controlchange looper)

    Looking good! :) Just out of curiosity, how many CC samples can you store on a track (resolution)? Will you support more inputs than one CC per track? I've recently found some unused memory on the LoopA and was thinking of limited CV support, too. But it will be a single CC per track only at limited resolution. So yours will be the dedicated machine for it, for clean filtersweeps and such, no competition there, no worries! :) Many greets, Peter  
  23. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @jingo thanks for your interest, there are qualified builders around, maybe someone will contact you. We will have to get shipping of all parts including the case going first. But here is the good news: Adrian shipped the final/release version of the lefthand jog/JA case with printed labels to Germany, so we'd expect to be able to provide you with new images of the final unit next week. So we can compare if it came out like the label photoshop mockup provided earlier :). The next phase is a final "fit-test", to see if everything can be installed nicely, then Adrian can ramp up the production. If all looks good (which is expcted), the v4+ could be under your Xmas trees, we should be able to ship everything essential for the v4+ in November. Many greets, Peter 
  24. dipCoreF4 and dipBoardF4, a compact Core.

    Looking good! :)
