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!
Heyo! After lots of thinking, I've decided to build a SEQ to become the navigation system for my spaceship. I've become hopelessly addicted to modular, and am curious if someone who use's their SEQ in a similar capacity could comment. Question one, whats the max output of analog info? 8 cv, trigger, and gate? Is more possible? Question two, can the SEQ interpret incoming cv? For instance, can I clock the SEQ from a simple trig out of my modular? Thanks much for the help!
