the19thbear Posted March 16, 2016 Report Share Posted March 16, 2016 (edited) So im thinking about a project.. I find it ver hard to find out what i really need inorder to do this. I cant really get my head around all thi midibox stuff:) I might be getting a hardware synth in the future that sends and recieves midi CC. The problem is that the synth only as some encoders and not pots/switches for alle paramaters. I would like to have that. So im thinking about making a midi controller for it. Basically i want to make sure i have a complete blueprint before i buy anything. What i want to do is this: 1: Make a midi controller brain for up to 64 pots. These pots (not endless encoders) will be converted to midi CC and sent to the synthesizer. That (as far as i understand things) can only be done via multiplexing. And that can be achieved via the ainser64 board. Right? And what core do i need? 2:Recieve midi CC from the synth. If certain midi CCs meet a certain criteria=light up an LED. Example: Lets say there is a push button on the diy controller called "LFO routed to VCA" (or whatever). Beneath that, there should be a LED. It should light up if i press that button and if the function is activated by a preset. So: If a preset is restored where the "LFO routed to VCA" function is activated, the LED beneath the button on the diy controller should light up. It should also light up and the function should be activated if i press it manually. Here comes the tricky part. I know about midi, soldering/following diagrams and schematics and reparing old analog synths. I *dont* know a single thing about coding. I *dont* know really anything about digital stuff. How do i actually program the darn thing? Is there any wsiwg editor or is it all done via coding? Is this a huge undertaking and is it a project for me? (my limited brain regarding coding etc, taken in account). Thanks!!! Edited March 16, 2016 by the19thbear Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
