  1. Fixed buttons in midibox64e?

    Ok, well thanks very much for the advice - I do appreciate it - even though we did not fix it :-)   I don't think there is a problem with the bi directional connection with mainstage, since every thing works. I can change encoders and buttons from mainstage perfectly. The thing with midi is that it only sends a status once, so if a button is on, its just because the last message it got was "on", and it will stay "on" until it gets an "off" message. It's midibox64e that turns off the led's when I change bank, not mainstage.   It seems I need to get a midi box_ng going to get this functionality... Then I could probably get the "in-ear encoders" to work perfectly as well. Just seems to be a bit tricky - when you are a musician and not a programmer :-)
  2. Fixed buttons in midibox64e?

    Yeah, they are set as on only. As toggle they actually turn off for real in mainstage as well. "of/off" works as well - i just have to tell Mainstage to ignore the "/off" part...
  3. Fixed buttons in midibox64e?

    Yeah, thats the same problem....   Mainstage does report the status back from those buttons, but as soon as i switch bank all the led's turn off, even though they are still on in Mainstage. So it's actually working - but it's a bit difficult for me to see whats going on.   Here is what the board does:   16 encoders: 1-8: Controlls amp settings for my ampsim (channel, gain, bass, mid, treble etc.) 9-15: Controlls the levels in my in-ear monitor (vocals, guitar, other guitar, bass, metronome etc.) 16: Guitar tuner output   12 footswitches: 1-4: Changes bank to change guitar sound (clean, crunch, drive and lead) 5: Vocal effect: throw delay which is momentary, 6: Filter vocal effect wich is toggle. 7: Guitar Dim toggle 8: Guitar Boost toggle 9: Guitar Mute toggle 10: backtrack Play/stop toggle 11: backtrack previous momentary 12: backtrack next momentary   Now: everything works, except that all LED's turn off when I change banks - which leaves me "in the dark" :-) The buttons still are activated in Mainstage - so there is no problem sound-wise.   Obviously it would be nice to have encoder 9-15 be "Fixed" as well, so my in-ear levels would stay the same regardless of which bank I'm in... But thats no biggie - I don't fiddle to much with that...
  4. Fixed buttons in midibox64e?

    So I tried the group thing! And it almost worked.... It looked right, but unfortunately the encoder did not send the midi data for the new value of the encoder when changing banks. So even though the encoder changed no data was sent to my application (kind of like when you dont have auto-snapshot and switch banks or patches).   Are there no other possibilities?
  5. Fixed buttons in midibox64e?

    I'll test it out this evening when I get home from work.   I'm controlling Mainstage on an apple mac. It's a live performance software thingy. It can send values if I want it to.   I was thinking about upgrading to a lpc17 core with a mb_ng. I am reading the documentation at the moment - and haven't found (or understood, more likely) that function yet...
  6. Fixed buttons in midibox64e?

    Ok, I'll give that a try...   But I need the encoders to change value when i change groups, not the event. So my 16 encoders always control the same event and just change value. Is that possible with groups?
  7. Fixed buttons in midibox64e?

    I've asked this question in one of my other threads, but did not get any replies, so I'll try to make a new thread....   What I need are fixed buttons that stays the same even if I change bank/patch.   4 of my buttons are toggle buttons. If one of them is on, I need it to stay on even if I change bank. Is this possible with midibox64e? Right now the buttons revert to what they are set to in the recalled bank...   The pedal_box project does exactly that - but unfortunately don't support rotary encoders.... http://www.midibox.o...hp?id=pedal_box   One solution could be if the banks only stored and recalled the encoder positions, and not the buttons... Is that possible? Another solution could be to have 2 cores, one running pedal_board for the for the buttons, and one running midibox64e for the encoders only. Then with midi merge enabled on both boards and just sending programchanges from pedal_board to midibox64e running patch mode to change the encoder positions.... But that seems a bit excessive, or is that what i need to do?
  8. MIDIBox64E question

    Hello Again.   Now my box is completed, I have started to program it (just need the frontpanel and enclosure). And I still have something that puzzles me....   What I need are fixed buttons/encoders that stays the same even if I change bank/patch.   4 of my buttons are toggle buttons. If one of them is on, I need it to stay on even if I change bank. Is this possible with midibox64e? Right now the buttons revert to what they are set to in the recalled bank...   The pedal_box project does exactly that - but unfortunately don't support rotary encoders.... http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=pedal_box   One solution could be if the banks only stored and recalled the encoder positions, and not the buttons... Is that possible?
  9. Midibox64e with MB-LRE8x2CS problem

    Sorry!! Found it! in the mb65e_preset.inc of course!   Again thanks a lot!!
  10. Midibox64e with MB-LRE8x2CS problem

    Great!! That worked! Thanks alot!   One last thing, how do i get it to use all 16 led's in the encoder rings? Right now it's only using the first 11 led's
  11. Midibox64e with MB-LRE8x2CS problem

    I have grounded the pins on j5. But I tried your suggestion anyway - but it did not help.....   I made a quick little video describing the problem:   http://youtu.be/EmKPuMzeqYk   If someone could please help me with this I'd be really happy!  
  12. I have made a midibox64e like this:     Everything works perfectly, except for the LED rings.   The LED rings are turned all the way up regardless of what the encoder position is. When i go into "LED Patterns" and change to another pattern, all the rings starts to move except for the selected ring. Selecting a new pattern does not change anything - the encoder stays on pattern #1 and is turned all the way up.   Here is my .asm file:   setup_midibox64e.asm   What am I doing wrong here? Can somebody give me a pointer?   Kind Regards   Anders
  13. MB64E quickacces patch from button?

    Cool! 300 ms should be fast enough. I'm just on my way on christmas vacation, but I'll check it out when I come home next week. Thanks a lot!!
  14. MB64E quickacces patch from button?

    Auto_snapshot was not enabled. I tried to enable it, but that changed nothing....
  15. So I've built my first midibox (mb64e). I'm going to use it as a foot controller where I can store and recall the encoder and button settings for different patches. At the moment it's working exactly as it's supposed to by having 4 dedicated bank recall buttons (FF 02 0n for the buttons). So when I press button 1 it changes to bank 1 patch 1, button 2 bank 2 patch 1 etc.) The problem is that it takes a second or two to change bank - and since I'm gonna use this for playing live, it's too slow. Changing patches, however, is instant. So is there a "quick access" switch to patch button meta event? Kind regards, Anders
