instead of getting a Core32 and updating my MBSeq to V4, I finally kicked off a project I had a long time coming:
a MIDIbox 64 based controller that is dedicated to my style of performing music with Ableton Live.
The idea is derived from both the Evolution UC-33 and the Korg nanoKontrol, which both in a certain way affected my way of controlling and playing "live" (in Ableton Live).
I got the PCB from Mike's just a some days ago and it all got rolling.
Like with my SeqV3 (see http://midibox.org/f...ahrungsbericht/ ) i was extremely happy to get the Core going without any problems.
So next I connected an AIN module, 2 prototpye pots, ground clamps and it's all running smoothly.
So here's what's currently running as a breadboard, all in nicely moving pictures:

And here's the front panel design:
As you can see the basic structure resembles a mixer as well as the nanoKontrol, and it's a compromise between all controls I need and keeping it compact (i.e. portable).
16 "channels", each featuring (from bottom to top) a (volume) fader, start and stop/mute button to control clips, free space for scribble strip and two pots for track control.
The buttons on the left will be for general track live controlling (my own way of doing things

The panel is already made at Schaeffer and I expect it to arrive this week, as well as all the other parts.
Stay tuned for more videos ;-)
