  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. 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 
  3. 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
  4. (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!
  5. 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 !
