  1. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @knochenfabrik looks really great in the case, very cool! Many greets, Peter
  2. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @Karg yes, looks great using the blue-green color scheme! Congrats to #19! Many greets, Peter
  3. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @Dimduj just a two quick answers, probably not everything covered: * SHIFT on the new v4+ frontpanel equals the SELECT button on the old one - in this context, if you have a look at the handbook: http://ucapps.de/midibox_seq_manual_m.html and search for "SELECT" (with case sensitive search!) you will see all the context-specific features it enables, just as an example, in the track transpose screen, SHIFT switches between Octave and Semitone transposition selection * Follow Mode (also when not recording) can be enabled by pressing the MENU + EXIT buttons simultaneously, it should work all the time. When it is off and you are recording, the display should jump to the step range only when new notes are "entered" i think, so i'd recommend to use the standard "follow" feature by just pressing MENU + EXIT. Many greets and enjoy! Peter

    Very nice & creative! Well done! Many greets, Peter
  5. The HAARP, an Hardware Advanced Arpeggiator.

    Great job, Bruno! Hope you are not mad, if I also implement a few (not all!) of the arp functions on the LoopA arp - but yours will be first, over here still working on it! ;-) Many greets and have a nice weekend! Peter

    @Dimduj and @knochenfabrikyay, great builds, well done!  Congrats to #16 and #17! Many greets, Peter
  7. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    Hi Thorsten, also thanks for your consideration from my side! No problem at all, we don't want inefficiencies! Many greets and enjoy the weekend! Peter
  8. mb6582 fan.... Am I mad to unplug it?

    Same here! :) Had no fan active right from my start in 2010, the SIDs are holding up very nicely! :) (Beware, though, If you have 6581, they run a bit hotter and might require better cooling than the 9V 8580s or 6582s). You could always also install passive heatsinks and drill add a few holes in the case PT-10 bottom for improved airflow - from the MB6582 photo-tutorial: Many greets! Peter
  9. midiphy SEQ v4+

    Great progress, @pat_00 and @keelhauler! if i count right, you get these serial numbers: pat_00: #14 keelhauler: #15 Very well done, enjoy! Many greets and have a great weekend! Peter
  10. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    Hi Thorsten, here is a question/potential feature request originally asked by @Menzman, but as it came up and i experimented with it a bit, i'd also find it very useful! :) Would it be possible to "glide/slide" on a CC track? A bit like the LFO effect, but between discrete steps, e.g. if a CC value is at 1 on step 4, and at 64 on step 8 and glide is on, would it be possible to output interpolated CCs between these steps? If it is not possible with sub-step precision (like the LFO effect does), that would probably be no problem, as the track could be setup as a "high-res" track with e.g. 256 steps and a fast divider and that would hopefully provide sufficient smoothness. Maybe this is already possible and we never managed to find the feature? :) If not, thanks a lot for considering it and many greets! Peter
  11. midiphy SEQ v4+

    @otropom Great build! Congrats! The serial number is difficult to say, as not everyone reported back here to properly count :). So, i'd suggest that anyone that built a v4+ can upload a proof of build (poidh :)) here and then claim the next serial number :). Let me recap the history from this thread: SEQ v4+ Serial Numbers (by "visual proof of build" :)) @TK. #1 (first prototype counts) @Hawkeye #2 @rbv2 #3 @Antichambre #4 @Elektruck #5 @CJ55 #6 @Menzman #7 @southpole#8 @Menzman #9 @enveevee#10 @gotkovsky#11 @otropom#12 @niles#13 (pic uploaded in troubleshooting thread) If i did count wrong somewhere, plz correct :) Have a happy weekend, have fun building and many greets! Peter PS: @latigid on is so busy designing new stuff, that he had no time to claim his serial number yet, maybe we should assign him serial number #1.5 as he did most work on this project!
  12. @niles JB-Weld was the way Wilba proposed it, so that's what we did :). It has the advantage of not seeing top-down-screws, and my MB6582 still holds well (after nearly 10 years, omg :)). The height (frontpanel - control surface pcb) was dictated by encoder size mostly, i would guess, it allows to perfectly fit on those "Waldorf" knobs, which are really nice. Nothing much i would change, no - recommend to go for 8580s and omit the fan, go for an OLED or a VFD as a display, a better PSU and a 6.3mm direct mix out, but the rest was just pretty perfect from the start :). Many greets and have fun building it, it's a great synth! Peter
  13. blm 16x16+x Costs - Calculation

    Hi Phat, moved it to the BLM section, no problem! And you are right, such a big BLM is quite expensive, mostly because there are a lot of parts required. Andy is currently designing a new and improved version for the v4+ (that will also work nicely with the v4 sequencers), but it will still take a bit of time. Have a nice weekend! Many greets, Peter  
  14. Bonjour doc007, Hehe, nice name you gave me! :) As the original site is down, i've attached the schem of the PSU to this post - build at your own risk! Happy weekend! Many greets, Peter MB6582-Netzteil.pdf
  15. Probably @latigid on can help you out way more than i can... but i just looked up the AOUT_NG schem and it seems analog ground can be tied to digital ground (see middle of the schem), maybe by a jumper? If that is the case, i think the grounds should be all tied down together and nothing is floating, which might cause problems. We are using the AOUT (not NG) module, so i don't really know much about the NG. Two more questions: do you use a DOUT module for the triggers? I think, if an analog out would be used for that digital purpose, the DAC might "overshoot" or ring or might not be quick enough, but that is wild speculation. Do you have access to a scope, so you can see the trigger output waveform? Many greets and have a nice weekend! Peter
