All things come to those who wait. But even if you wait for an eternity, no SID will come your way unless you hunt it down because it has been long since it was discontinued! And so I did hunt it!!. Two found and thus, the quest for the MidiBox SID began.
It is a stereo [...]
This is the day of the midibox. I started making 4 MidiIIC modules and 4 Core Modules (pic based)The four MidiIIC will be used for a midi router (again, a midibox project) I am making.One of the cores will be used for it too. The other one will be used for a SID engine (with [...]
This is the keyboard from the last post with some additional stuff. There is a Core module (midibox.org) and a digital in midibox module that reads the switches. I installed the SDK so I can write a minimal program (midibox is programmed in C and produces hex files, uploadable as system exclusive data to the [...]
Collin Mel and myself , have designed a PCB layout for AVRSynth, instead of doing it on perfboard. It hasn’t been proofed and debugged yet but I am on the process. If you feel adventurous and/or lucky, you can download the eagle files from here and try yourself!. Please do tell me about possible bugs [...]
Switches came. Tact switches for many purposes… The midibox Seq waits for some of them. The c-music axis clone, for most of them, and maybe a mini keyboard for one of the synths. Hey you could even make a guitar fretboard with them, they are just the right size.
For making stuff with switches, midibox ruleZ!!!!
Both are midibox core modules, both are working even with the slight fixes made on the right one . One serves now as the brain for the sequencer and the other one for more experimental stuff. (That is: my non-working programs
The midibox Core module is a monster of usability. It is a hardware core component and a software library that can turn the chip into a powerful midi/controller machine. There is a very active community that writes programms and creates modules and applications. The mastermind behind the midibox is T. Klose (and I wonder what [...]
