  1. 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.    
  2. Hello all,   this ismy first MIDIBox project. I bought themodules and needed components off from another builder that had these lying around without any use. I recently disassembled a broken Viscount home organ and took out the foot pedals. I am planning to build me a bas pedals midi controller to play synths on stage.  The two main  features in addition to the 13 keys for feet would be an octave selection via up and down buttons and a midi channel selection with up and down buttons as well. I suppose these are pretty easily executed, but I would like to have two 7 segment numeric LEDs to show the state of both of those paramets. So here is an image of what modules I have. Are these workable? I ope the link works! Thanks to eveyone already contributing! -K
  3. midibox Dj controller

    Hello, I try to make a Dj controller with midibox NG. I try to make a 2 decks with possibility to control 4 decks. I can control the 4 decks with 2 button per side (deck 1-3 and deck 2-4) the problem is when I start the controller (with or without a dj software), the right deck is not active (I need to push the deck 2 or 4 button to activate it and be able to contol it). so how can I have the left and right decks active in the same time? I join my basic .NGC  thanks DEFAULT.NGC
  4. I am brand new to midibox, I don't have any modules yet, as I am trying to figure out which ones to get exactly, I haven't found a sure answer to what I'm looking for specifically by looking in the forums and the general information on the ucapps site, maybe someone could help. I'm trying to make a controller for Pro Tools using 3 MF_NG modules , for 20 channels/faders total since it would be installed in an existing 20 channel console, but I'd also like to have buttons and leds for record enable, channel automation, as well as transport controls and automation selectors (read, write, latch, etc.) as well as leds for the record lights, which for me would be about 60 buttons, and 20 leds at least for the record enable lights. at least Ideally it would use mackie HUI, but I would be fine with using MotorMix if that works better.  I'm trying to find someone here who has successfully made a controller with both motorfaders AND buttons/leds who could let me know what modules I would need My first thought was to get a STM32, and then connect the MF_NG modules and DIN and DOUT modules, but in the MF_NG thread there was a post that made me think that might not work. I posted the quotes below, they are from 2012, maybe this is dated? Would it be different since I am only using 3 MF_NG modules? Could I use just a STM32 or would I have to use an LPC17 and MIDIO128? If I did need to use the MIDIO128, would I have to use the LPC17 or could I use it with a STM32? My understanding is that the STM32 is an upgrade in a lot of ways to the LPC17, and doesn't require an external burner. My goal is to keep everything as simple as possible since i'm completely new to midibox. But since it's Pro Tools we are talking about, things can't be so easy..    Sorry for so many questions, any help is greatly appreciated!! Even if i had to use older modules, that would be okay! I just don't want to get/build the wrong components.. I also wanted to make sure this kind of configuration is something other people have gotten to work in pro tools   Here are the quotes:
  5. Hello guys! I'd like to share my experience of connecting Yamaha BC-1 breath controller to Core LPC (using MIDIbox NG application). First of all, I'm sorry but I didn't manage to obtain any AINSER module, so all test are done using onboard ADC.   All 3 BC's are powered with 9V and output values in the upper half, but in a "mirrored" manner: higher voltage in rest and lower voltage when blown into. BTW, one can also suck the air in, then output value goes even higher, but doesn't reach 9v. BC-1 and BC-2 have a diode on their outputs (don't know about BC-3), so a pull-up resistor must be used (without it the output is "hanging": I get a random flow of CC values).   There is a (not so good) option to power BC's with 5V, I saw this approach several times in the Web (e.g. for connecting to expression pedal input of a synth or to some commercial controller similar to sensorizer, e.g. Doepfer WE):   I've found the following page on one forum (without a link to the source, but we may guess it's somehow related to some controller named MIDIBOARD): So after several experiments with different schemes and voltages, I settled on the above scheme. Doepfer WE manual recommends pull-up resistor from 1k to 4k7 (however, for 5V supply). Because above schematics outputs values more then 3.3V, I had to use a simple pot-based voltage divider instead of a pull-up resistor. I calibrated it and everything works fine... almost.   Here was a good part. There is one annoying thing I still trying to get rid of: At first I used 47k pot as a divider. I've got a lot of 127 values in the flow. Even if I do nothing, they are flowing, like: 60, 127, 60, 127, 60, 127, etc. (60 is my value at rest if not adjusting pinrange etc, but simply setting output 0..127 mapped to 0-3.3V). I tried to increase the current by replacing my pot with 1.4k. It helped - now 127 values appeared ~ twice a minute. And finally I replaced my pot with 640 Ohm. Now I get 127 once a minute. So the problem is I cannot eliminate sporadic 127 values completely. And 640 Ohm divider I think is a waste of battery ;)  
  6. Hello community! While experimenting with pots and other types of analogue inputs I've noticed a specific behavior: Let's say, some analogue input is mapped to certain controller with range from 0 to 127. If this input voltage is slowly rising from 0, MIDIbox NG does nothing and waits until this value is big enough to send at least 4. So, values from 1 to 3 are skipped. Fading works smoothly, i.e. values from 3 to 0 are sent. Then if I don't hesitate and rise the voltage again - rising goes smoothly (values 1 to 3 are sent), but if I wait a little and then repeat the procedure - values from 1 to 3 are skipped. Is this intended behavior of NG application? If so, could TK point me a place in code where it can be tweaked?

  10. Hi there, I own one of these: 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
  11. (Modular?) MIDI Controller

    Hi there! I've got this idea spinning around in my head... It all started out with a bunch of Behringer's BCR-/BCF2000 which I considered to be the best controllers I could get (for the money) to control Propellerheads' Reason with. The only problem was that I just couldn't get all 4 of them running together, controlling what I wanted them to and giving me the feedback I was craving for... Then someone crossed my way and helped me build a codec (a file that tells Reason all it needs to know about the controller) which handles every 2 of them as one device, which got me the control I wanted, but still lacked proper feedback, since I wans't yet able to get access to the BCs' original functionality... Then I came up with the idea to create my very own MIDI controller, based of an improved BC-like design, and built on top of the MIDIbox platform! :D My latest spin on this idea is this: I think it would be a lot more affordable for me to build some smaller controller units one by one, than doing the whole big thing all at once! So... would it be possible to, let's say, make a controller that's just a MIDI brain with some basic/general controls, and then make some additional "modules" (e.g. one with lots of encoders, one with a bunch of faders, perhaps an additional one covered with buttons, etc...) and then connect them all to the one basic controller, which in turn provides data and power connections? I've already done some research, but although there are already some more or less modular controller platforms out there, there doesn't seem to be something like this... yet! :) I'll appreciate any kind of response, and, maybe some time, a little (more) help in development of such a system -- if only to see it it would be feasible... Thanks!
  12. Hey everyone,   I bought a Kross synth from Korg a few months ago, and now use it as a live inbstrument with my own Korg EMX-1.   The Kross synth is very nice, but is too unconvenient to use live. All settings are mastered by the software, and you have to access menus, and under menus to modify anything, kind of boring... I now use the Korg Kross Editor, that allows me to controll Kross faster and easier.   I have never built a MIDI controller myself, I just started getting informed on the topic, and it seems accessible.   So here's my question, I'd like to know what you guys can tell me about building a MIDI controller that would be directly made for my Korg Kross ? Is that doable ? And how ?   Cheers everyone !

  16. MB64E Side project

    Yo! Just thought I'd do a small blog entry on the sideproject (I consider the synths my main projects). A midibox 64e. This is a short term project, and all parts have arrived or are on their way. It's gonna have 9 encoders, lcd and some buttons + 4 expression pedal connections. One pedal is soon built - waiting for the last parts to arrive from the states :). Anyway, some of you might have seen my picture of the encoder PCB. Now, here is a couple of pics of the finished built pcb. Also fitted on top is a PCB mockup (thick paper). This is gonna be housing all the smd leds for the knob backlights. This hasn't been etched yet because I discovered I needed to do a couple of layout changes - the leds are a bit too close to the encoder shaft than I'd like it to be... :). As you can see, this is gonna be a encoder control surface sandwitch :D. The cables are rainbow ribbon cable from tim's and I have split them up and put on some nylon stockings :P. Heat shrink tubes holds them in place ;).
