I've started on a Midibox LC build, ordered the full set from mike, ordered the chip preprogrammed with the bootloader, build the core v3, and burned the LC v1.6 to the chip. Wich worked the first time around to my surprise!!
Now while building the other components I'm eager to test some features on the ones I build already. I do have some expirience with midi controllers, because I tried building a midibox LC with an arduino board, but this lacked
processor power, and someone with great programming skills. But I did get it to communicate with protools 9 HD, controlling almost all features.
Now I've build one DINX4 module, one DOUTX4 module, and hooked the DINX4 up with 8 buttons to the mute channels of the default map, connected it to the core, and now for the testing...
For your information, I haven't got my 2x40 LCD displays yet, so I was wondering if this should work without them.
My DAW is connecting to the LC, I know this because it's getting the handshake ping (Sysex Otari 8 bytes every 2 seconds or so).
Now pressing the buttons is not working, but then I don't see the LC sending out any midi data, so that would be normal.
is it because I haven't got those lcd's hooked up, are they showing the error message that is holding the LC to send the midi data?
I know the tutorial states I "MUST" have the LCD's, but can't stop wondering why this doesn't work without them.
I've tried connecting a 2x16 LCD, but that didn't work. Now I haven't figured out yet how to change the LCD type in the software. so maybe that's where the problem starts...
I'm a mac and windows user, but compiling the hex file is something I need to figure out, is there not a Gui that lets you setup the LC in realtime?
