Can't wait till mine arrives.

Btw, money was transfered last week, it should haved arrived meanwhile.

yes, but I don't go to the post office each day when somebody (finally) sends me the money (I got it last friday)

Usually I go once per week

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Hi TK.

Mine arrived yesterday all well and nothing broken. Nice piece.

Can this be used as core for midibox lc? Or whatever replacing lc... Remember I read something a while ago about midibox ng or something. It's gonna be exciting to see what u firmware guys come up with. I'm not very skilled in programming, and its awesome how complicated stuff u manage to put into those MCUs. If I wrote the code I'm sure I could manage to use up 10 times the memory for the same shit hehe.

Yes, the existing MIDIbox LC V2 code will be merged into MIDIbox NG V2, which is a combination of MB64/MB64E/MBMF/MIDIO128 and MBLC

This will finally allow to use the controller hardware for multiple purposes without uploading a new firmware (just selecting a different preset stored on SD Card)

But it will take some weeks until a first version will be available, I'm currently working on MBCV V2

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Hi TK. Nice job.

What I'm planning to build is a 32ch daw controller, with this new core does it still mean I need multiple cores or will it be possible to realize with one? Asking just for the sake of simplicity, a few more cores will still be one of the cheaper modules of such a controller, but it less hardware means less trouble if something needs fixing hehe.

Software wise no big problem, as there are enough resources (flash/RAM/processing power) available to handle the same functions, which were shared over multiple PICs before.

But hardware wise the LPC17xx supports only 8 ADC channels (like the PIC), and the analog inputs are only at 3.3V instead of 5V, which means that pot values could start to jitter once they are multiplexed by more than 8 channels.

But: I consider to evaluate a cheap external ADC chip with serial interface.

E.g MCP3208, an 8 channel ADC, 12bit resolution @5V and DIY friendly DIP package, available for only 3 EUR at Reichelt!

Multiple ADC chips can be chained, the inputs can be multiplexed (e.g. via 4051), so that each set of MCP3208/2*4051 would add +64 channels with 12bit resolution.

The serial chain could either be connected to J19 or (shared with the SD Card) to J16

I guess that up to 16 sets could be chained, which would result into up to 1024 analog inputs :)

Best Regards, Thorsten.
