  1. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    Thank you, TK!
  2. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback

    In the options menu, #19 allows you to set the initial CC value for Clear and Init. Would it be possible to either make another option for the PrgCh default value or to use the CC settings for PrgCh as well? When assigning PrgCh to a track layer it defaults to 0 for all steps, so right away a PrgCh message of `0` is sent. I think it would be more ideal for the default value to be `---` so that the PrgCh messages would have to be explicitly set on a step.

    Disregard that question - I figured it out. This sequencer keeps amazing me! If anyone else hasn't figured it out: On your target track (the one with the notes you want to play), open the mode menu. Set mode to 'normal', select a bus, and change STrg to 'on'. On your 'step' track (the one to advance the steps of the target track), open the event menu. Select the bus you specified for the target track. Now any steps you enter in edit mode will cause the sequencer of the target track to advance a step.

    Would it be possible to decouple a track from the master clock and advance the step from another track? I know it sounds unintuitive, but one of the most fun parts of the sh-101 sequencer is the ability to advance through the steps with an external trigger source like an 808 or 606. This allows for some really interesting variety for a relatively simple sequence (I always think of them as 'rolling' sequences). For a 4 step note sequence ABCD And a 16 step trig sequence *--**--*------*- *--**--*------*-|*--**--*------*-|*--**--*------*-|*--**--*------*- A BC D A B CD A B C DA B C D AB C D

    I appreciate the fast bugfixes - thanks @TK.!
  6. SEQ4 Heidenreich Case Bulk 2014 / 2015

    I did quite a bit of searching for these but I think they are custom extrusions. They are fairly simple but clever interlocking sides that seem to be adjustable to whatever angle you may need. I emailed Heidenreich about them a while ago but never heard back, and talked with a fabricator friend of mine who said he didn't think they would be common profiles.

    I found a bug in v4.095pre6 (using Wilba CS) where all encoders become unresponsive after using live record. The encoders appear to work fine until a note has been recorded - after this they become unresponsive. This seems to be the case only when notes are recorded while the sequencer is playing.

    That's great news! I really like the modular layout and the backlit buttons - nice work!

    You can do this in the 'loop' menu in FX. It can be applied to just the selected track or to all tracks in a pattern. I use it quite regularly and have the loop toggle as a hot key on my panel - lots of fun!

    I'm not worried so much about the encoder values being bumped, its more about ergonomics. The USB jog wheel you shared was nice, but it has rounded edges on the jog wheel as well as a contoured surface. Combined, these features give more room for finger placement. Now imagine that same layout with a square-edged knob and flat control surface - its not a negligible loss of space. I don't know of any better solutions except a flat data wheel (I got one at Adafruit but it has a long stem - I'll have to scrounge up the part number) and/or more space between the jog wheel and buttons. I'm by no means speaking from a position of experience, it's just something I noticed that might be worth checking out.

    My main concern with the design is that, at least according to the renderings, the data wheel is not flush with the surface of the case. I would expect this to lead to accidental knob nudges when pressing the frequently used function buttons surrounding it, or at least make some of the ergonomics a little odd since you have to angle your finger around the edge of the data wheel. Is there other hardware you've modeled this layout after?
  12. MIDIbox SEQ new frontpanel idea

    quite excited by the new layout, excellent work!
  13. That looks great, definitely interested in one! How do the panel and extrusions interlock? It seems to be friction fit and all held together by the side panels. Or are there blind screws where the panel and extrusions overlap?
  14. OLED displays

    I switched from 5v to 3.3v and now they work fine  So, my experience is that the Raystar White OLEDs work(ed, before the power zap) at 5v with power provided through an external regulator (Murata 5v switcher external to the DISCO board), and that the Raystar/Vishay Yellow OLEDs work at 3v3 with no external regulator (straight off the DISCO board). This is very strange since they are both spec'd at 5v. But hey, it's working–I'll take that. A responsive display is such an improvement to the user experience!
  15. OLED displays

    I am now having this exact problem - I too accidentally fried my Discovery board (the previous revision) and now the OLED displays do not work with the new Discovery board (the latest revision). I even tried replacement displays (Vishay from Mouser) with no success. I am back to using my old/slow LCD's from buydisplay.com Is it possible that this is a compatibility issue with the current revision of Discovery boards?
