This is my first post on here but I've been reading the site for some months. I know you get asked a lot of the same basic questions so sorry if I touch on any of them (I've read everything I can find a few times over). I just want to have a final check before I start buying parts.
I want to make a controller for Cubase, I've looked at the LC but I don't think its quite what I want. I'm happy to be persuaded otherwise but I think this is more for motor faders etc.
I'm coming to the controller idea from doing live dub mixes on an analogue desk. This is basically playing the desk throughout the track, muting, sending to FX, eq sweeps, feedback loops etc..
Because I want to control multiple knobs at once I want to have a section of discrete controls (12 channels of pots and none motorised faders) and then a full channel strip of encoders selected by channel select (or bank select) buttons.
I've not properly designed the front panel yet because I want to work out PCB sizes first but I've attached a very rough design done on paint
I want the controller to have:
48 x rotary pots
12 x fader pots
27 x rotary encoders
24 x LED tact switches
40 x standard tact switches
Possibly some more LEDs
So for that I'll need:
1 x Core Module
1 x Core Chip
2 x AINX4
4 x DINX4
1 x DOUTX4 or 2 if I go over 32 LEDs
I just wanted to check that everything is in order and looks right, if there's any problems that you think i may run into or if there are any better ways of doing things than what I've listed.
Thanks for your time! :D
