  1. -HELP- LIVID INSTRUMENT

    Hi! A long time ago I baught some Livid instrument  "Elements" units to creat a midi controller. (4 untis of 16 button + 2 untis of 16 knobs + 2 units of 4 faders /see pictures/) I check the download section of the livid site to get the software (Brain V2 / Jr. Configure v1.07) but "Error 404" ....... Impossible to download the software, so impossible to configure the controller, so impossible to play with... So how can I do? Is there another board I can use to connect all the units? Is there a software I can use instade the livid program? Other ideas? Thank you!  
  2. Hello, I'm looking for someone who could program a PIC16F88 for me (I want to build the simple MIDI merger). I am located in Braunschweig, Germany. Best regards Reiner
  3. Hello there.. I am more than a bit lost.. I spent hours on the uCApps pages, without being able to make a choice.. KB ? NG ? NG ? KB ? I have a 3 octave keybed which I wand to make a MIDI keyboard with.. I want it to be mounted with, at least, - MIDI DIN and USB connections - 1 bend wheel - 1 mod wheel - 1 BC controller input - 1 sustain pedal input * Having 16 pots, 16 push buttons would be nice.. - a LCD display (2X20 or 2X40).. Of course, I want to be able to select MIDI channel anytime, and also to define CCnumber for each pot or button, from the machine itself (not to be forced to use a computer or to edit the hardcoded parameters)..   So the question is : should I chose the Midibox KB, or Midibox NG ? In either case, what modules should I build, and how many of them ? I thank you in advance for your answer.. Thierry
  4. 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

  6. Hi Fellow DYI-ers, I have 4 DIN,  4 DOUT, Midi IO, and MBPH_DIO_MATRIX_V1; all fully assembled and a  MBHP_CORE_STM32F4 module for converting an old Church Organ to play Virtual Pipe Organ using Midi. I have Download all files such as MIOS_Studio_2_4_9, en.stsw-link004 Utility, en.stsw-link008usb drivers, mios32_bootloader_v1_018 and SetupSTM32CubeProgrammer-2.4.0 all of which are installed. I followed the direction on http://ucapps.de/mbhp_core_stm32f4.html. with success with the  exception of running MOIS Studio Please look at the picture below and I attempted to run Mios Studio This 1 picture is the result of when I 1st open Mios Studio. Everything looks ok. The 2nd picture showed my file path to upload the " project.hex file to  MIOS Studio This picture shows after my file path has been selected. The final picture shows the result after starting the upload The only device connected at this point was the MBHP_CORE_STM32F4 only. Please help me. I am completely new to this. Do have to  module connect the organ keyboard prior to monitor the midi msg.    
  7. 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

  11. 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:    
  12. 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?  
  13. The NG and the DSP...

    Hello all, as I told in the thread dedicated to the RTP-MIDI compatible NG board I made, I added some expansion ports to the board, not only for the KissBox but also for something else on which I am working since a long time... It's time now to reveal what I am working on :smile:   Since a very long time, I work on the idea to ressucitate the Soundart Chameleon, and since the beginning, I am convinced that the MIDIBox NG CPU is the right base for it. For those who do not know what the Chameleon was: the Soundart Chameleon was an hardware synthesizer, built around a DSP56300 and a Coldfire microcontroller. The whole software base was completely opened, and it was possible to write your own synthesizer application. The bad thing is that Soundard went bankrupt, and Chameleon disappeared, which is a pity, considering that the idea was brilliant, and the price was affordable for such a machine. The MIDI part of the Chameleon was running under MIDIShare (a open concept, similar in many ways to MIOS), and it was responsible of loading the DSP code.   Then come the DSP problem... I program and design DSP boards since a long, long time for pro audio and music applications, and I know quite well that DSP may seem out of reach for DIY community. We are facing two problems : price and tooling. Almost all DSP uses BGA and other SMD industrial packages, making the idea of DIY board really out of reach for most of MIDIBox members. Making the PCB is not really a problem anymore, but soldering these chips by hand is most of the time impossible. Even "low end" DSP like the VLSI and the Spin FV-1 are SMD.   So I looked to two other solutions : recycling ASX/i-CON/Plugiator boards or use Analog Devices EZ-Kit boards For both of them, the cost is roughly the same (around 350 euros for a board - ouch!), but there is nothing to do at hardware level. If you think it's expensive, just take a look to the Monome Aleph.... 1400 dollars!!!! The Aleph is partially open source (hardware is closed source), and the software is still quite limited today (as far as I know, the Aleph only have one synth project for now). Even with a 500 dollars DSP board, a MIDIBox project would cost half this price (and would be compleetly open)   From a personal point of view, the EZKit are much better (more audio I/O, more interfacing possibilities, complete documentation available, software toolchain delivered with the kit), but they are bigger and you must write your own software (but that's where I come into the game, since I will provide the code and support for the community)   The ASX/iCON boards are delivered with three excellent software synths (the VST interface for them being simply awful however :sad: ), and they can be driven directly from MIDI I/O from the MIDIBox for simple projects. There is no technical documentation for these boards (I had to draw the schematics by myself, after hours and hours of investigation), and getting access to the DSP requires some modification (to inhibit the local processor and replace it with the MIDIBox board), but it's feasible   I have included in the RTPMIDI_CORE board the connector needed to access the EZKit and ASX boards, so the link will be very easy to make between the two boards (see "MIDIBox goes RTP-MIDI" topic for details about this board), and I am currently coding and testing the library for the STM32 to load firmware in DSP board (take care, Analog Device calls it a bootloader too, but it has nothing to see with MIOS bootloader :shifty: )   I just expect now that this project will get some interest from the MIDIBox community   I did not want to go into much details in this already quite long post, but of course, if you have any question... just ask (I am preparing some pictures of the first prototypes I made)   Benoit
  14. 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 ?  
  15. MIDIbox goes RTP-MIDI...

    Hello to all MIDIBox forum members,   I am proud to announce that, thanks to Thorsten work, the last version of MIOS is now RTP-MIDI ready :rolleyes: If you do not know what is RTP-MIDI, you can take a look there : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTP_MIDI   (In two words, RTP-MIDI is transporting MIDI over IP networks, to take benefit from high speed from Ethernet, plus other new functionnalities like automatic merging/splitting). RTP-MIDI is completely license free, natively supported by Apple in OS-X and iOS, and there is a free driver for Windows too. It's also Plug&Play thanks to the use of Bonjour.   The concept is based on the use of the KissBox RTP-MIDI OEM board (http://www.kissbox.nl/products_oem.html), which translates the RTP-MIDI protocol into an high speed SPI based protocol (the protocol being simply the one used for USB transfers)   Of course, final users will not need to write their own RTP-MIDI application in the KissBox CPU board, I have written this part (Thorsten included the host part and tested it for the MIDIBox applications) The first version is in beta state, we are now looking to optimize it, especially the SPI speed.   We will demonstrate the board at NAMM in Anaheim in two weeks, if you want to see it operating (we are located at booth 1088 in Hall E, for those who want to visit us)   If you have any comment or question, they are of course welcome   Benoit (PS : yes, I am from KissBox, in case you are asking yourself :shifty: )  
  16. 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
  17. 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.    
  18. 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.

  22. 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
  23. 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 
  24. 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?
  25. 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
