TomViolenz Posted April 1, 2014 Report Share Posted April 1, 2014 Hey Jerome, I had contacted you before for this board and I am very happy to read that new bulk orders are comming up for an improved version. I want to use these boards to built a controller with as many led lit encoders with a push functionality for 8 channels as possible (I'm refering to 8 columns here, so just like your board). So here come a few questions from a noob :-) 1) How many of these boards can I stack on top of each other at the maximum, 4 or 8?! (I think if I understood you right, the last version allowed for 4 while this one allows for 8 - is this right?) So this would then be at maximum 8 columns of 16 encoders each, correct?! (If it's just 8 columns of 8 encoders each that would also be very usefull) 2) I didn't quite get how far these new boards come already pre-assembled. Are the Leds already functionaly applied (i.e. soldered)? How about the encoders(with push functionality?)?! Not that I necessarily expect that, but the wording in one of your post made me think that this is an option. Since this would be my very first forray into building a controller, I would of course welcome that. 3.) What other hardware would I need to get these boards to work? Could you point me into the right direction for the necessary information? 4.) Is there a possibiltity to add one 60 or 100mm fader per channel ( meaning 8 in total) directly below the last encoder in each column? What would I need for this. and 5.) Somewhat unrelated (though if this was something that I could incorporate into the same controller that would be even more awsome, especially if it could follow somewhat the same dimensions) I was looking into building a controller with 8 small (non springloaded) joysticks, so that I can adjust the x-y stereo placement of 8 channels precisely (using the Panorama 5 plug-in that has this functionality, so this should be a Midi joystick). What kind of board would I need for that and could this be still controlled with the same controll board as the above mentioned encoders and faders.? Thank you ever so much for your great work and your responses :-) Cheers Tom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
