  1. 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:

  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Extra wires for core

    Hi I'm having trouble getting my core module working. I notice on the wiring instructions 2 extra wires are to be added to the core pcb. What pins do these 2 wires connect to? Thanks.
  6. Hi, I am using a Midibox Seq4 with latest firmware in Combination with iPad BLM. It is no problem to switch nstruments in BLM. But how can I switch Instruments on the Seq4 itself? I am pressing <Trigger> and or F3 and or Performance layer 3 but I cannot switch between for example BD and SD. Any ideas? Greetz Chris
  7. 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 https://modularaddict.com and I also printed the FantomXR PCB (Fatar keybed adapter http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=fantomxr) 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 https://www.reichelt.de/ from the orderlist. Moreover, the STM32F407G-DISC1 is available here: https://www.reichelt.de/?ACTION=3;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.  
  8. 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.
  9. Hi Folks ! My LCD problem is solved, my E131 sd card problem seems to be solved......No I'm facing a wilba frontpanel problem... I created the attended directory tree on the SD card: - file MBSEQ_HW.V4 (Wilba's one) at the root of the SD - directory SESSIONS and DEFAULT session created via MIOS terminal Booting the MB lead me to this weird screen: G1:Unnamed             G2: Unnamed           G3: Unnamed           G4: Unnamed NoCat 1: A1 _ _ _ _  NoCat 2: A1 _ _ _ _   NoCat 3: A1 _ _ _ _  >>> NoCat 4: A1 _ _ _ _  Typing sdcard tells me there is no MBSEQ_BM.V4 at the root. So I copied the /SESSIONS/DEFAULT MBSEQ_BM.V4 at the root of the sd and I now get this screen: MIDIbox Seq v4.092               1.1.1                  /SESSIONS/DEFAULT                140.0BPM     Bookmarks              About this MIDIbox<     Open Save SaveAs New Delete        Info The About this MIDIbox< is slightly flickering on the rightmost of the left LCD display... Anyway...I'm pretty sure the wiring is correct but I can't get out of this screen, whichever button or encoder I press.... Could this non responsive frontpanel come from a badly tuned MBSEQ_HW.V4 file ? Which options have to be modified for a "traditional" wilba's frontpanel (with beat led) and no tpd setup.... Cheers, Tom.

  11. All about midibox TIA ! Hi everybody, I'm sorry for the wait, some of you would not believe it. But. Here we are! You will find on the wiki all the "Cartridge" completed. Some of you will find their nickname in the bulk order list. If you still wish it, complete the options if not erase your line. And I will calculate final price for each one of you asap. Best regards Antichambre  
  12. Okay, my google fu is not up to par, and this is my first go at KiCad, but: I've been trying to find schematic files I can open in KiCad (i.e. not pdf's) for the Midibox modules. How do you all do this? I "think" it's possible to import the .brd files in KiCad, if I use the nightly build. Not sure what's an efficient work flow.
  13. Hi Im at the stage of soldering the cables before 1st power up. What pins does iic midi module connect to which pins on core module please? Thanks.
  14. Please where is the link to the bootlader firmware hexfile for burning on to the PIC18F4685 with the MBHP burner? Thanks.
  15. Hello all,     i am finally after 5 years coming to the point of trying to finish off my SID module :) Since i got a lot of nanoSIDs and now trying to build a full 10 SID chip device, yeah :)   I have a question, since, in my humble opinion, the documentation is quite not good, sorry to say so, but I am missing a lot of documentaiton on the schematics, for me the best of coourse would be to have some eagle pcbs files or at least double layed brd and sch files as gif or pdf, to controll all the values.   But what i am really missing big time is some real schematic of my mb6582 modules.   Here is my first question:   in each core module there is a Diode on Pin 35, it gives 5 V thru the pull up? R80 which should be 1k.   Where can i possibly find that in any schematic? Or to put it another way, does anyone have a full schematic of the modular addict mb6582 PCBs?     Would appreciate any help, otherwise i will maybe continue to post my built process. cheers, seb
  16. D-Sub 25 output question

    Hi All, I have a question regarding the Dsub 25 output connector that I would like to use without the transmitter PCB, but with a Aout-ng and D-out. Do I need to use a seperate ground for every output or can these be shared in some case? I mean is the max 12 outputs total; using 24 wires or can i get more my sharing the ground? Thanks,   Cheers Tim      
  17. Hi all :) I have a build and functioning Midibox Seq V4 with front and rear aluminum panels. I have a MPCNC that I build with Wood CNC capabilities and also a laser (2.8W) which can cut opaque acrylic. I'm planning to make wood sides with profiles cut to insert the panels and curved aluminum profiles but I'm having troubles finding suitable aluminum extrusion profiles for the curved parts.  I've look all over and can only seem to find the t-slot style ones in the U.S. Did anybody have any luck finding a good version to use for making the quarter round curved aluminum profiles from a supplier in the U.S.? Thanks for any help you might give :) ~Airyck
  18. Hello all, I've build my core stm32F4(fantomxr pcb) + diomatrix + fatar adapter to connect my 88 keyboard. I installed midibox kb and connected everything, but i can't output any midi, so i guess i did something wrong :) I tried the virtual keyboard and i didn't receive any midi input in my daw, so i was wondering if my setup was correct, it seems midibox kb is loaded correctly(cf picture).

Then i wanted to check if my diomatrix was ok so i connected I1 to O1 on J3 to check for midi input, but i did not receive anything(no data in mios input). Is there a way to troubleshoot easily diomatrix ? or some tension to check on the core stm32F4 , i've checked my soldering and connection with a multimeter and everything seems ok. Thanks!            
  19. Hey guys, After a bit of troubleshooting I thought I would post here to see if anyone could help. I have two MBHP_MIDI_IO modules connected to my MBHP_CORE_STM32F4. All of the Input/Outputs of the first MBHP_MIDI_IO work but on the second MBHP_MIDI_IO (which is daisy chained to the first) all work apart from OUT3. After checking the IC's and all the soldering etc I swapped the MBHP_MIDI_IO boards around and still OUT3 was not working (this time it was on the other MBHP_MIDI_IO). So both boards are working but for some reason OUT3 is not getting any output. On the Midibox Seq MIDI monitor it looks like data is being sent out but nothing arrives at the output.  Anyone know what might be the issue here? Cheers, Steve

  22. [SOLVED] SD card error E131

    Hi folks ! Now that my LCD display work fine, I'm trying to get my wilba frontpanel to work... Precision: everything is soldered on the CS pcb, except the leds (I'm waiting for my frontpanel to be delivered).... When the CS pcb is NOT plugged in, I don't have any error message whether I put standard's, TK's or Wilba's MBSEQ_HW.V4 at the root of my fat 32 formatted SD Card. Turning the MB on leads me to the main page as shown here . With the wilba's MBSEQ_HW.V4 at the root of my SD card, when I plug the CS PCB (from J1 on the CS PCB to J8/9 on core module), I get this error: >> |!! SD CARD ERROR !! |<< >>| E131 (FatFs : D  0)      |<< I learned german at school, but this is kind of a long time ago, so I may have misunderstood this discussion . : TK said: "E131 steht fuer ein ungueltiges Bank Format (irgendetwas stimmt nicht mit den MBSEQ_B*.V4 Files in Deiner Session)" This E131 means there is something wrong with my MBSEQ_B*.V4 in my session.....The fact is that my SD card only has the MBSEQ_HW.V4 at the FS root....No /SESSIONS directory or else...When I type sdcard in the MIOS termial, I only get MBSEQ_C.V4 and MBSEQ_HW.V4 files listed as valid (the output of sdcard tells me there is no /SESSIONS/DEFAULT/ files etc.) The previously quoted topic talks about a D9 error.....but I get a D0 error....and no luck with any search in the forum or the web... Any idea of what could have gone wrong ? Cheers, Tom.
  23. [solved] LCD Problem

    Hi folks, I'm building my seq V4 and am facing a major problem: my LCD displays only show a row of black squares... I'm building a wilba frontpanel. The MBHP bootloader is in my STM32F4 board: MIOS Studio tells: Operating System : MIOS32 Board : MBHP_CORE_STM32F4 Core Family : STM32F4xx Chip ID: 0x10076413 Serial: #320041000D51353235363632 Flash Memory Size: 1048576 bytes RAM Size: 196608 bytes MIDIbox SEQ V4.092 MIOS Studio proposes 4 Midi Ins and outs for the Midibox (named MIDIbox SEQ V4, MIDIIN2 (MIDIBox Seq V4), MIDIIN3 (MIDIBox Seq V4) and MIDIIN4 (MIDIBox Seq V4). MIOS Studio is also able to see what's on my SD card, but it seems like the core board can't read neither the wilba MBSEQ_HW.V4 nor the standard MBSEQ_HW.V4 files which are located at the root of my SD card (when I try to edit the MBSEQ_HW.V4 with the MIOS File browser, I get an "Invalid response from MIOS32 core during read operation" after about 14% of the file has been downloaded) I must add that my frontpanel isn't completely finished yet, so nothing else than the LCD displays are plugged on the MBHP_core_PCB (bought on smashTV shop). This is the LCD I bought and its datasheet. It seems like the LCD for the seq V4 must use a HD44780 controller. The ones I got uses a ST7066U  controller but are said to be compatible with HD44780... I tweeked the contrast and luminance pots but none of my tries gave any effect on displaying good things... I verified the connections and everything is at its own place (Seq ground to LCD ground, seq Vd to LCD Vd, etc. ) Any idea of what could be wrong ? Cheers, Tom.  
  24. WTB MIDIbox SEQ V4 England UK

    Hello, I really want a midibox v4 but don't have the time / will / skill / patience to find all of the parts and build it all to a high standard. I'm looking for something in the UK preferably. I'd like it to be fully built, be well made and in full working order including a nice case. I wouldn't mind trying to build it if I could just have a full kit with everything including the case with it but it'd prefer pre-built or built to order.  Thanks, Pete
