Control surface PCB for 16 encoders/LEDrings Bulk Order

333 posts in this topic

Hi.

I inform members of the start of a bulk order concerning a all-in-one PCB integrating DINx4/Doutx4 modules and a control surface with 16 encoders/16 LEDrings.

The list ends the November 23th 2012.

You will find all the informations on the wikipage.

The thread of the design of the board is

If I made a mistake or if I forgot something, don't hesitate to say it here.

Best regards,

Jerome.

+2 for me! Thx for your recent changes! :)

Edit - i just measured space above the synths, and four boards fit in, those will be necessary for the FS1R controller, if it is ever built ;-).

Again, many thanks for your work. Will take 4 boards, then :)

Many greets,

Peter

Paypal?

Yes, as far as I understood +5% PayPal fees, which is normal.

Also great to see, that one goes to TK for free :) That will secure us eternal LED-Ring board support :-D (just kidding)

Many greets,

Peter

It is also what I understood also.

Other people take 6% or more in their bulk order.

A little count:

Paypal fees:

3,4% + €0,25 EUR European Union

3,9% + $0,30 USD US

3,9% + £0,20 GBP UK

3,8% + 2,80 NOK Norway

3,4% + 3,25 SEK Sweden

5,2% + $0,30 AUD Australia

5,2% + R$0,40 BRL Brazil

4,7% + 1,35 PLN Poland

14€ x 3.4% = 0,476€

0,476€ + 0.25€ = 0,726€

In percent: 0,726/14 = 5,19%

Regards,

Jerome.

...I understand why now (I need to stop "head calculation").

Jerome.

Tim has the source files.

I think it is interesting to Tim in terms of time and energy spent only if a minimum of people show interest by this PCB.

Thats why I am in your bulk order.

I need one for my MB controller

( I also think that to have a premade encoders and led surface may be useful for future projects so I hope that Tim will be interested )

Wow, great documentation on the Wiki :thumbsup:

As many peoples seem to want several boards, I will try ASAP to make another travel to my post office to be more precise with shipping cost and update the shipping cost table regarding the number of boards ordered.

I advertised this slightly over at Mutable Instruments. With some luck there will be more people who are brave enough to also tackle the more DIY/Programming approach of MIDIbox :thumbsup: Also, it could give us cheaper boards (I always have ulterior motives and plans within plans within plans). That big, wrinkled space emperor dude got nothing on me :devil:

First GM5:s, then they'll emerge better and more confident...

thought I could stay away from MIDIbox but there's no way I can pass this project up! I got here from Jojjelito's post on the mutable instruments forum

putting myself down for 4 boards, hopefully I will get them built and booted up some day :)

if I continue to not buy a b-control (so uggo and junky) that will help motivate me though I'm sure!

Wondering if these boards could be used for pots with different multi/demultiplexors? Also hoping to bring down the pcb price with excessive orders!

No, these boards are made for (endless) rotary encoders. Analog pots require different boards (and different software).

Really great design! Finally a simple & newbie-friendly solution which will be useful for many projects! :)

I will definitely support it in the upcoming MIDIbox NG, and also in MIDIbox CV V2

While writing this I noticed that I actually need three PCBs - one for MBCV2, and two others for MBNG because 16 encoders won't be enough for my usecase - I added myself to the list and of course I will pay for the PCBs! :)

Best Regards, Thorsten.

I'm getting in too deep, but what the hell, that's the vortex of Midibox slowly sucking me in. Put myself down for two.

Thanks!
