totoRaymond Posted July 19, 2019 Report Share Posted July 19, 2019 Hi! First, let me introduce myself. I'm Thomas, sound engineer, I'm working mostly in audio post but have a small home studio where i record small bands. It's been a long time since i started thinking about making a midibox NG, but other projects kept me busy (I built a few preamps for my home studio as well as other audio gears) But now, i finally have time and hopefully make it a reality. I will try to keep this thread updated with my progress and experiments. So first, i'll expose what i'm aiming for: My goal is to build myself a Midi controller that is basically a Mackie Control with a few more features to control Nuendo. I really want it to be as ergonomic as possible, and today, no controller on the market would fit my needs completely. (maybe Nuage systems, but that's a bit expensive) Midi-wise, i will use 3 ports as Mackie Control and one as a Generic midi. (feature that you can set as you wish in Nuendo) I want: -25 faders: 24 using MAckie Control and MC expanders + one using Generic Midi to control selected channel in DAW -Each fader will have 4 buttons, an encoder with led ring and an oled display on top (just as any MCU) -transport buttons -various array of buttons with MC features as well as window management, automation features, some edit functions... -a Jog wheel -a surround panner -one bank of encoders to control selected channel EQ -another bank of encoders to control Selected channel Dynamics -Control-room commands. I think that's it for wanted features. Now for things i will need: As i understand i'll need: -2 STM32F4 Core module (1 main and 1 for MF_NG modules) -4 MF_NG modules -a bunch of DIO matrices for buttons and LEDs. -and probably an AINSER8 module. I already own a STM32F4disco and i made my own version of the core module. I went through the tutorials, and i've been playing a bit with a beaboarded Din / Dout. Joined is a block diagram of the way i think My different modules will fit together. Hopefully i got this right... I still have alot to do / learn, but feeling really excited about it right now! And i'd like to thank Thorsten and everybody involved in the midibox project for all they have accomplished. This is great!
