Motorized jog wheel
Posted 12 February 2010 - 20:52
I only came across this site when I figured that if I want to do any actual scratching, I'd need something better than the Omni. I wasn't even aware of the huge community of diy midi dj consoles or I might have looked to build one myself. Either way the order is through, and I wanted the audio interface that the omni has to offer. I saw rasteri's job wheel and that seems to be perfect but has anyone thought of including a motor in there? Seems to me it would be a great addition to the digital dj experience. I'm continuing my research and I have to buy a midi interface as well as soldering equipment since I just moved to alberta and left everything I had back in Quebec... Any thoughts and ideas appreciated and much gratitude for rasteri for the development of his model.

i allready made some thoughts about it for myself ( im also building a controller)
It would be possible but:
atm there is no solution to emulate timecode, therefore you have to use the scratchmode of the jog as a workaround.
this requires a the motorisation of a jogwheel with custom speedcontrol, controllable via the core.
resolution of speedcontrol (faders)
electrical / mechanical durability of the motorization
flutter / speeddroop (german: Gleichlaufschwankung, dunno the right vocable for this word^^) of the motorization
i think the last one is the main problem if you really want to use the thing for gigs.

Perhaps if this fails, I can probably easily incorporate a touch sensitive platter to improve the thing, because if I build this thing I want it to be more effective at scratching than my omni board..

to handle controller data like this flawlessly. IMO that´s one of the reasons the ns7 and the other itch controllers have a proprietary hardware implementation.
But thats wild guessing...so better ask T.K.

Usually their are 14 bits sysex midi (throught usb/firewire ever) or HID.
The scratch resolution and speed needs high data level communication fluxes.
