m00dawg Posted February 1, 2016 Report Share Posted February 1, 2016 Back in 2013 I was trying to devise a rackmount version of the MB6582 and what really nerfed that idea was how much it would cost to have all the control surface boards fabricated from OshPark. I rather liked the approach I ended up with, which was to mount the shift registers to the control boards themselves and just connect them end to end (similar to how DIN/DOUT boards work). This year I was thinking of tackling it again, but sadly lost some of that work and again realized that the board costs are non-trivial. Instead, I was thinking of going back to leavning on the MB6582's DIN/DOUT design which uses a switch matrix for the buttons or just using separate DIN/DOUT modules directly and wiring things up more like the Rev C control surface. In both cases I can likely make things work using protoboards. Using the switch matrix makes the most sense, but I'm not sure how I would go about wiring something like that across multiple separate control surface boards? Can anyone shed light on how that might work? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
