Protodeck MIDI controller for Ableton Live

The only way to solve my problem was to use an hardware to control Ableton Live, but not only that, I need a feedback from it too. But I need a lot of pots/knobs, a lot of multicolor lights, a lot of buttons… So, I guess … I have to think, read, code, test, build, learn to solder better… to create my OWN hardware.

Will it be possible to transfer patterns between the lite v4 and the seq v4? Yes, the file format is compatible, and the complete engine is available.So: you could prepare patterns on a MBSEQV4 and play back on a MBSEQV4LAnd vice versa (e.g. step/live recording patterns on a MBSEQV4L is more intuitive) Just swap the SD Card -> done In fact MBSEQV4L is identical to MBSEQ V4, just only the user interface has been reduced (e.g. a LCD will *never* be supported!)

Midibox Sequenzer MBSEQ V4 / The Project. Nachdem ich nun Zeit hatte mich mit dem Ausmessen des Rear Panels zu beschäftigen, kann das Projekt weiter gehen.

Midibox Sequenzer MBSEQ V4 / The Project

Da ich etwas andere PCB’s für die Ethernet Schnittstelle (OSC) und den SD Kartenleser verwendet habe, musste ich nochmal die unterschiedlichen Abstände der Bohrungen im Rear Panel überprüfen und anpassen. Im Vergleich zu Wilbas und TK’s Panel habe ich folgende Änderungen vorgenommen: 1. Einbau eines Standardschalters. Dafür gibt es mehrere Gründe. 7. Der Ein/Aus-Schalter wird einfach in das Rear Panel gesteckt. Ich verwende zum Fixieren der verschiedenen Boards M3 Sechskant-Distanzhülsen aus Metall in der Länge 0.5, 1.5 und 2.0 cm. Die 0,5 cm Distanzhülsen werden für das Fixieren des Core32 Boards verwendet: Die Abstandshalter werden in meinem Projekt nicht mit dem Boden verschraubt, da mir das geeignete Werkzeug zum „sauberen herstellen“ der Löcher (Bohren und Versenken) in der Bodenplatte fehlt.

Danach kann mit dem Klebevorgang begonnen werden. MIDIbox SEQ V4 Release + Feedback - MIDIbox SEQ - MIDIbox Forum. Gridracer link=topic=14053.msg122115#msg122115 said: I use sinkdrivers for the Cathodes, but it makes no difference whether I set the Inversion Mask 0x00 or 0xf0.

Behaviour of the LEDs is the same with both settings! The BLM driver is completely implemented, but the inversion mask wasn't changed.

Hardware Variants We mainly differ between a MIDIbox SEQ V4 which is based on Wilba's frontpanel, and the "traditional" variant which is based on the MIDIbox SEQ V3 hardware with a replaced core module. Both are running with the same firmware, so that you won't miss any software feature! Wilba's frontpanel greatly reduces the complexity of the hardware, and is therefore the prefered choice.

MIDIbox NG User Manual

The aim of this chapter is to give you a rough oversight about the configuration of a MIDIbox NG before your are working through the details of the .NGC, .NGL and .NGR format. Editing Configuration Files First of all it makes sense to get familiar with MIOS Studio and especially the integrated MIOS Filebrowser, because it will enable you to try out changes in your MIDIbox NG setup quickly by editing the configuration files, and transfering the changes via USB-MIDI.

After power-on, your MIDIbox will always load the DEFAULT.NGC and DEFAULT.NGL file - you will see the appr. messages in the MIOS Terminal (click on the image to enlarge): The DEFAULT files will be automatically generated if they don't exist on the connected SD Card. By opening the MIOS Filebrowser tool in MIOS Studio, you will be able to access the files which are stored on SD Card: UPDATE: since V1.019 the file will be loaded automatically whenever it has been uploaded.
