  1. Special characters in Label

    Hi all, my first NG-project is alive ;) I build a switchable USB to 4 DIN midi port router. Al from parts I have laying around. After a evening digging this forum and trying, it just works. Now I can control my Volca's with a single USB midi keyboard (hurray). I don't get one thing: How do I get special characters on the display?? For example in the next line I like to have a arrow instead off the >-sign (or the solid >) EVENT_SENDER  id=1   if_equal=Button:1:1  fwd_to_lcd=1  type=NoteOn chn=1   key=any  lcd_pos=1:32:1  label="> %e"  ports=00001000000000000000 [17:36] Is this possible with NG?   Cheers, Kees

  8. IncBank DecBank Trouble

    Hello, I just noticed a peculiar error in my configuration, that is based on the way that I switch banks while running the application. On my hardware controller I have two designated buttons, whose purpose it is to increase or decrease the bank number respectively. Basically it works as desired, the bank numbers get changed accordingly. But when I use these buttons multiple times, especially in succession to another, I noticed that my MIDI controller "resets". It return to its startup screen, but keeps continuing to react to my bank selections. This seems like an overload of some kind. Because I did not notice any curious in the MIOS terminal I decided to take a look at it in MIDI OX. There I saw, that after triggering one of the bank switches a loop starts which repeats a bank selection command over and over again. As if the triggering by my hardware controller does not get stopped after adjusting the bank number. The peculiar thing about it is that the value for the bank selection is 0x76, which is 118 in decimal format. That does not make any sense to me, unless it is some kind of error code, which I do not know about. Here is a picture of the log: the 0x02 values is te bank number value set by me triggering the respective button, the 0x76 lines just keep goin on and on after that. i was also wondering about the SysEx message, but I think it might be one of the logs ("bank == 2") that I set up in the ngr script to be printed after bank switching. The relevant ngc code for this is: #Bank Selectors EVENT_RECEIVER id=4042 fwd_id=SENDER:4042 type=NoteOn key=0x0a chn=1 range=0:1 EVENT_SENDER id=4042 if_equal_stop_on_match=RECEIVER:4042:1 type=Meta meta=IncBank meta=RunSection:2 EVENT_RECEIVER id=4043 fwd_id=SENDER:4043 type=NoteOn key=0x09 chn=1 range=0:1 EVENT_SENDER id=4043 if_equal_stop_on_match=RECEIVER:4043:1 type=Meta key=0x09 chn=1 meta=DecBank meta=RunSection:2 The ngr code for that section: if ^section == 2 log "section 2" if ^bank == 1 log "Sec 2 Bank 1" send SysEx OUT2 0xf0 0x42 0x30 0x24 0x41 0 0 0x00 0xf7 elsif ^bank == 2 log "Sec 2 Bank 2" send SysEx OUT2 0xf0 0x42 0x30 0x24 0x41 0 1 0x00 0xf7 elsif ^bank == 3 log "Sec 2 Bank 3" send SysEx OUT2 0xf0 0x42 0x30 0x24 0x41 0 2 0x00 0xf7 elsif ^bank == 4 log "Sec 2 Bank 4" send SysEx OUT2 0xf0 0x42 0x30 0x24 0x41 0 3 0x00 0xf7 elsif ^bank == 5 log "Sec 2 Bank 5" send SysEx OUT2 0xf0 0x42 0x30 0x24 0x41 0 4 0x00 0xf7 endif exec_meta RunSection:1 endif Does this seem familiar to anyone? Any reply much appreciated here! Best, Micha
  9. Stop knobs board

    Hello, My English is not very good. I am trying to build an electronic stop knobs board. If I press a knob I want a signal to my grandorgue program. Later on I want to connect leds to indicate the state of the button. I made board, soldiered the button switch and connected them to a dio_matirix. The lpc17 had an old bootloader with midio128. I succeeded in installing midibox NG. The file "default.mio" was still on the SD card so I deleted it. The stop knobs (buttons) are not working out of the box. All the column buttons send the same note. I read a lot of manuals, but I do not get clear where to start. Probably edit the "default.ngc"....   Any help is appreciated. Robert    
  10. Hallo zusammen, ich suche jemanden aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum mit Erfahrung und dem nötigen technischen Sachverstand, der bereit wäre mir gegen Bezahlung einen MIDIbox v4+ Sequencer auf Basis der DIY Kits und dem Case von Midiphy zu bauen. Ich selbst habe leider nur unzureichende Erfahrung was bspw. den fachgerechten Umgang mit Elektrobauteilen oder das Löten angeht. Darüber hinaus habe ich gelernt, dass es Dinge gibt, die man den Profis überlassen sollte. Ich hoffe auf Eure Rückmeldung.

  12. Fatar TP/40L Midification

    Hi everybody, my name is Florian (aka Thoskan) and I live near Toulouse in France. First of all, Thanks to all of you for sharing all this documentation about the project MIDIBOX KB. Initially I wanted to buy the controller LMK2+ alone without the keyboard, but Doepfer wanted to sell me 500 euros. So I refuse and opt for the MIDIBOX project, more interesting, configurable and also much cheaper. My project is to midify a keyboard Fatar TP/40L, and I chose to use MIDIBOX KB, with the CORE_STM32F4 and DIO_MATRIX. I bought the 2 PCBs from and I also printed the FantomXR PCB (Fatar keybed adapter at OSHpark. Thank you FantomXR for this missing piece to my project. For the moment, i just want to connect the keyboard (2 micromatch of 20 pins ), a sustain pedal and 2 yamaha FC7 pedals to control volume and fx. I bought all the components from from the orderlist. Moreover, the STM32F407G-DISC1 is available here:;ARTICLE=219363;SEARCH=STM32F407G-DISC1. It is a little more expensive than at Mouser but the shipping costs are lower (20 euros at mouser vs 5 euros at reichelt). I look forward to receive all these components and I hope that i will solder very soon. I will share every step of the construction, that's why I created this topic. I hope I will not have too many questions.  Thank you Thorsten for this great project and for your generosity.  
  13. Interstellar Subway

    I'll admit, on this one the SID is a little further back in the mix as it is mostly contributing to the bassline, but it coupled with all my other synths, really produced something I'm quite proud of. I haven't released a solo track in quite a long time. That's one perk of the pandemic, I guess!
  14. midibox 18f4685 LOAD software

    Hello friends, I am new and this is my first project, I bought midibox sid2, the small version. My odyssey is to load the necessary software inside the pic, I have a USB charger that supports this IC. I would like to know what HEX file I have to load into the PIC or if I have to load several. I've been reading something about a bootloader (bootloader_v1_2b_pic18f4685.hex.) I also have a file inside a folder called midi. Please, if someone can explain the loading sequence of the software, it would make me a father.

  16. MIDIbox Logo for your eagle Board

  17. Hey guys, I have a sammichSID which I built from kit a few years ago. It's a fantastic device, but I have a few issues which I can't seem to solve. One is that the Arpeggiator doesn't seem to change direction. It only ever seems to go "Up" no matter how many times I change it to "Down" or any of the other settings. Also, how can I tell if both SIDs are working? Are they both working when I get stereo output? Are the two SIDs required for stereo output, or can stereo output be achieved with only one SID? My sammichSID seems to have stereo output, and the green LEDs at the top move up and down at different rates on the left and the right. Does this mean both SIDs are working? Thanks in advance, Squinton.

  19. Hello everyone, I have an original unbuilt sammichSID kit for sale. I prefer to sell this to someone in the MIDIBox community.  Originally purchased from Jason Williams(Wilba) in December of 2012. I would like $225 USD for it plus shipping. Contact me to work out the details. I could post it to ebay but there will be a slight upcharge for ebay's fees. 
  20. Accessible MIDIBox Lite

      Hi, I'm a blind musician and A MIDIBox Lite looks like a good solution for me, but I'd like some advice on a couple of component choices: 1 - Can anybody recommend suitable buttons for the GP buttons that have good tactile feedback (i.e. a reliable "click", not a spongy rubber button)? 2 - I'd like to add the encoder option for setting BPM so, again, could anybody recommend a good quality one that clicks around rather than being a smooth action? Many thanks in advance. Tim  
  21. Hi folks. I've build a MIDIbox FM years ago and had a lot of fun with it in the last years, but i've never taken the time to design the beautiful case that this synth deserves. It might have to do with the fact, that building something really cool would make the sausage casing more expensive than the sausage. However, in the last days i came to the conclusion, that now it's the time to build something nice and i started with it. Unfortunately i never made a professional designed PCB by myself, but this time the handwired strip boards i used with my projects in the past wont do the trick.Same goes fpr 3d design and cnc milling of the frontpanel, never done anything like this. Actually i'm in the process of learning KiCad and FreeCAD and as i quickly realized, there are a lot of other skills and knowledge i have to learn before. The goal is a 19" case with the extended user interface. The matrix row/column buttons of the original expansion design will be extended to a dedicated button for every single function. To make this work without having to change the code, i want to use DPDT tactile switches, which are really a rare breed out there. Here are the first results of what i've learned until now:

  23. Hi what are the connectors called that connect the ribbon cables to the jumpers can someone send me a link for reichelt I had to make my own out of hard drive connectors and it sucks thanks much appreciated.
  24. I have a number of pre-programmed PIC 18F4685 for sale, already flashed with the latest MIOS. I recently flashed them to help out a fellow MIDIbox community member building an MBSID, but who is not responding to PMs anymore... Shoot me a PM if interested, asking price is 7,50€ (what I payed) per piece plus shipping. I am located in Germany. Regards, ilmenator
