  1. MIDI Implemtation for EUCON

    Hello I was wondering if anyone had any information on the MIDI implementation for the EUCON protocol that is now used to connect several types of control surfaces to Cubase 10, Logic 10, Nuendo and Protools 2019.5   I think these control surfaces uses Ethernet interface, which is different to the standards used by MIDIBOX but can be used alongside Mackie Control and generic control surfaces. So think of the possibilities, although in all fairness, i do not know if any one has been able to turn their hand to getting their MIDI box to control all the parameters in  all the different plug ins at the same tume. so please forgive me for my ignorance.   I would imagine that there would be little info on this protocol, as the manufacturers would likely want to keep this a closed platform http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/compatibility/EuControl-Compatibility   However, if someone already had a EUCON compatible control surface, I can't see why someone cant' rev engineer using basic mici sniffer apps or even MATLAB Audio Toolbox? apart from the obvious legal restrictions... but hobbyists.. may bend the rules a little for personal use?  
  2. RTP MIDI System

    Hi all,   Having browsed the forums regarding RTPMidi, etc I've finally decided to look at giving it a go on my end. My current setup consists of 6 Digidesign midi i/os (giving me 60 MIDI in/out split across two computers) and a Motu midi 128 (giving me 8 in/8 out). Currently, I have custom built MIDI multicore cables connecting my PC rack with the Digidesign and Motu i/o to my synth and effects rack. As I understand it, the RTPMidi board supports 16 virtual cables which I'm guessing equates to 8 in and 8 out or does it mean 16 in and 16 out?  Ideally what I'd like to do is create a couple MIDI to RTPMidi boxes that I can put in my synth and effects racks so that I can connect all my MIDI gear to my PCs with just ethernet cables rather than my bulky multicore cables. What I want to know is the feasibility of this. I have very good manufacturing skills, but my design and programming skills are a little bit lacking so any help would be appreciated here.   Many thanks   Dan
  3. In case you are looking for an inexpensive and an easy-to-build MIDI THRU solution, Andy has built a new PCB for this job! :) It is good for low-latency MIDI distribution, supports normal and TRS MIDI connectors and offers a visual MIDI traffic indication using a superflux LED. Also, it is multi-chainable to 8x MIDI DIN and 6x TRS MIDI or even more outputs. Using these boards, you can extend your SEQ MIDI OUTs to drive a lot of MIDI synthesizers with minimal latency! :-). The USB port is intended for easy portable jamming setups, or you can alternatively power it via a pinheader. We've also included a build photo tutorial. https://www.midiphy.com/en/shop-details/0/35/ Enjoy and many greets! Peter
  4. I want to implement a stand-alone variant of http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device.php?id=196 What I want to achieve: I want to select quantize grid, feed clock to the core and play live, but with getting quantised output. Has something like this been done? What's the best approach? I was thinking of using the NoteStack from MBSEQv4 and pushing/popping notes on the notestack based on midi clock.
  5. Morning! I'm new in this forum. I've subscribed because i'd like to return to life my glorius Fatar keyboard. After the internal midi controller died, i'm considering to realize my own device, i'm skilled enough to deal with firmawre, pcbs and so on. Are there anyone in this forum that could give me some tipps in order to speed up the development process?   Bye, Gluca.    
  6. Hello, I've got a question! I was about to buy a small interface box for two of my effects. but when I saw the price I thought that there was probably not much in it and that I could have everything I needed to tinker with one. Someone has already opened one of these boxes? I suspect they have just put an optocoupler and distribute the logic level on the Jack outputs? And Empress call their one, midibox Thank you Bruno
  7.     multitrack record, recorded with zoom livetrack12, made with one JP8080 for all tracks (also drums) overdubed with the Midi-Clock to Audio, Audio to Midi-Clock technology in order to drive a midibox seq light multiple once after a nother... info about midi-clock to audio: and wiki: http://wiki.midibox.org/doku.php?id=clock2audio2clock  
  8. in our band we are playing with the thougt to record our sessions with the zoom livetrack-l12...but this have no midi... up to now we recordet only the master-track without any midi at all so my question is: is it possible to convert a midistream to audio? and convert this audio-recording back to midi? so i could use one o the 12 channels for the midi (clock start stop notes and so on) are there already devices out there? i can remember that 30 years ago such things as midi tape exist... or is it maybe a cheap trick that can be solved with an optocopler an opamp and a few lines of code?     EDIT: its done   VIDEO-Overdubbing a JP8080:

  11. Seems Ploytec developed a succesor of the old GM5. It's USB 3.0 with up to 16x16 MIDI In/Out. It's not atmel based like the old GM5, instead it will use Texas Instruments TUSB9261. I called them some minutes before and the friendly Ploytec employee told me, that within the next half year there will also become a board available with pinheaders for the shiftregisters etc. He gave me the approval to repost the PDFs here. usb3_midijunction_sch_16x16.pdf usb3_midijunction_sch_8x8.pdf usb3_midijunction_sch_1x1.pdf
  12. My Midiproject

    Hello everyone :) i'm Leon from Germany and I want to design my own midi controller. It should look exactly like that: http://www.malighting.com/fileadmin/_processed_/csm_MA_onPC-fader-wing-web_04_d5a4263569.jpg I decided to build the LPC17 based Core and use 2 DIN, 2 DOUT (60 buttons - 60 LEDs) and two MFNG module, because I want to use 15 Motorfaders from Alps. Is this project possible with midi box? Where can I buy the PCBs in Germany? I would be very happy with some feedback :) All the best
  13. Hi, I have a Line 6 FBV shortboard MK1 that wonder if I could use as a MIDI controller for the Möbius looper software. So far I have figured out that that the pedal needs 9v (through the rj45 connection) and sends/receives serial data. Any hint would be very much appreciated :) /Lars
  14. Midi-in-Core > DMX-out Converter

    I want to convert Midi-In-Core (not USB-midi)> DMX-Out Core (MAX 485 Circuit) but in the DMX-Examples i read: // For now disable UART as we will be using DMX #define MIOS32_DONT_USE_UART suggest that i cant use Midi-Input then? What do i have to do to get it working?
  15. openMaster Masterkeyboard

    openMaster Masterkeyboard Today, i start the development of the openMaster master keyboard. It should be a kind of clone of the "openLabs Neko". Let's bring up some features: 61-key master keyboard computer with an VST host 64 pots (MIDI controller) 16 faders (MIDI controller) built-in hardware sequencer and an audio interface for high quality output If you want to see more of it, stay tuned 
  16. Hi all, my MIDI electronics experiments started long long time ago, with a PIC based MIDIBox... I sometimes peek at the midibox site (I am mostly on vogons forum these days), but now it is really time to post again ... :-) I proudly announce my latest project, a successor for X1 : X2 !! - Small form factor midi PCB : 65mm x 38mm size - Waveblaster compatible connector for use on sound cards and DIY projects. - Dream 5000 series synth chip with 81 voices polyphony - Super low latency <1ms - 64mbyte flash for soundbank data - USB MIDI in (Class compliant midi device, works on Windows XP without drivers) - stereo line out using a high quality 24 bit DAC (3.5mm stereo connector) - Preloaded with a high quality 16 megabyte Dream General MIDI soundbank (http://dream.fr/pdf/Serie5000/Soundbanks/GMBK5X128.pdf) Running very well already with old games,  still working on the software to add some features allowing to tweak more. I expect to have a batch of these ready by december :-) I should make some recordings soon. What do you think ?  
  17. Ich hab grad auf der Ploytec Webseite gesehen, da scheint es neuerdings einen großen Bruder vom allseits beliebten GM5 Chip zu geben. Hat wohl USB 2.0 / 3.0 MIDI mit bis zu 16 In / 16 Out Ports. Mehr ist auf der Seite leider nicht zu erfahren, der dortige Link ist Passwortgeschützt. http://www.ploytec.com/ http://www.ploytec.com/datasheets   Hat jemand schon mehr Infos dazu?
  18. Midibox sid midi controller

    Hi there! i have a keyboard with 8 sliders and 8 knobs, all midi cc assignable.  What do u believe would be the optimal parameters setup (16 of them only) to control my midibox sid? Im working with two sids in a stereo config.

  20. hi all , someone knows why my sammichSID dont start up / boot up when i have connected both midi cables ? (midi in and midi out connected) . When i only have connected one of them , then no problem , but if i have connected both , the sammich dont start. Thanks. In regard to check some failure, is There any way to know if midi input and output is working ? or how do a diagnostic ? thanks very much
  21. Hi, I have modded my Peavey Vypyr 120 combo guitar amp, since it only has a dedicated 8-pin connection to the Sanpera pedal, which transports midi and voltage for the pedal. To be able to also use midi signals from a sequencer to control the amp, I split the 8-pin connection up to standard 5-pin and the other three pins separate, putting a midi merger in between. Everything is documented here: http://peavey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=42132&sid=fa2db4d5a14f0699d076a40acd46d0ea Everything works quite nicely, except the volume pedal of the Sanpera. It does more of an on/off switching and in general is very unpredictable. I captured Midi Data with MidiOX with and without merger (see attachment, part above sysex is without, below with merger, sysex comes from switching the amp on) and can't see any difference. What I'm trying to find out now, is if there is a generic problem when using a merger in conjunction with midi CCs from an expression pedal, or if only the merger I have sucks ;) I also found this discussion, no idea if that could be relevant: http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=102792.0

  23. USB to MIDI converter?

    Hi, a while ago I bought a Nektar impact LX 61 keyboard, which has an USB connector only (see bottom of http://www.nektartech.com/Products/Impact-LX49 ). That worked fine (with some latency) connected to a PC and making music with a DAW. Now I'd like to connect it directly to other MIDI devices, like my e-drum, which accepts MIDI controllers for backing parts, through regular MIDI connectors. I'm sure there is a solution to this, but I'm not sure which one will work when searching the web. E.g. there are some USB/MIDI converters like the Prodipe MIDI USB 4i/4o (http://www.prodipe.com/en/products/interfaces/item/60-interface-midi-usb-4in/60-interface-midi-usb-4in), but USB seems to be dedicated to PC only. I'm not sure if USB/MIDI cables with integrated converter will do (e.g. http://www.thomann.de/gb/terrasoniq_midi_one.htm ). What I'd like to have is a stand-alone solution, which converts the LX's USB connector into a regular MIDI connector, so I can plug it directly into other MIDI devices. Power supply from the solution would be nice to have over USB, as that's the LX's normal mode - alternatively I could attach an extra power supply to the LX (right left to the USB port). [error: that's for a foot switch] I welcome your suggestions ; -) Thanks from Germany, Michael

    homemade seqV4 backpanel...
  25. Hi there, I own one of these: http://www.hammondclub.nl/db/upload/cache/image_resized/539x422/J_412_1972_OK.jpg. I bought it for $40 years ago and it's not valuable by any means. I use it right now as a conversation piece/bookshelf. However, I would really like to make it a useable instrument for my band (I play multiple keyboards). I am familiar with MIDI but no matter how much research I do, I still wind up getting confused about "DIY"ing. I want to convert this to a MIDI controller (I don't care about the organ stops, just the on/off/volume knob) and be able to use it with Logic as a basic starter module. I already have my three keyboards; I'd like this one as simply a way to add more texture/layers and the foot pedals. Would someone kindly be able to provide me with a tutorial that is user friendly to a MIDI rookie and let me know exactly what parts/board, etc. I would need for this project. I'd really appreciate it so much!! Thanks
