5 posts in this topic

Hello Gents,

I'm new to this forum and i'm really eager to build my own console. As far as i can find out the most things i want in my new console are possible. I hope anybody can help me out with my checklist.

2 20x2 LCD's - CHECK

8 Channels with each:

- Motorfader - CHECK

- Mute button & LED - CHECK

- Solo button & LED - CHECK

- Rec/Ready button & LED - CHECK

- Select button & LED - CHECK

- PAN encoder + 12 LED - CHECK

- EQ HIGH encoder + 12 LED - ?????

- EQ MID encoder + 12 LED - ?????

- EG LOW encoder + 12 LED - ?????

- 5-10 LED VU meter - ?????

Or am i asking to much of it now? :)

Regards,

Henk

PS. this is an awesome initiative!

you can do it, but I think you'll want 40x2 character lcd's - and you'll want four of them (four faders per screen) I think you'll do good building 2 midibox LC's

Thanks for the reply!

Acttually I want to make 3 of these, so I woul have a 24 track console. So that's why I'd prefer 1 core for each 8 tracks. Unless cubase would allow me to have 6 midi connection. Or would it be possible to have 2 cores on 1 address?

Regarding the LCD, the design I have does not really allow me to have 2 40x2's. I only need them to display the tracknames, I don't have the need for feedback about pan and eq as this would be given to with by the encoders and LEDs. I assume it's possible to have 4 tracknames on a 20x2 LCD? 2 on each line

TRACK1----TRACK3----

----TRACK2----TRACK4

Any advice is welcome!

Before going into the details: do you have programming skills, or do you expect a ready-made firmware?

Best Regards, Thorsten.

I do have some programming skills but its long time ago. Pascal, C, basic.

What would be the ready made firmware solution? The one documented on the LC page?

And how much programming would it be to change this to my desire?
