Faderbank Run: See top post for status


#62

I would recommend avoiding bare pins for the ii/i2c/TWI. As this device isn’t mounted in a rack with the cables hidden behind, it would be way too easy to dislodge the cable when in use. This is why, after looking for options, I went ahead and adopted the Aleph’s 3.5mm “standard” with my remix beta unit. :slight_smile:

Not so sure here either. Both Teletype and the Aleph have pull-ups, which we can augment with the busboards. I’ve been lamenting putting pull-ups on by beta unit as it seems to limit its use in those scenarios.


#63

Also tentative, depending on cost / delivery to UK, and hardware Midi out (any standalone is fine)


#64

Duly noted ; will defer to almost anybody when it comes to I2C facts!


#65

remember pull-ups need to go to 3v3. they can of course stay unpopulated by default!


#66

no, is this a thing a newbie can do? because I would love a couple.


#67

USB isn’t a wire format, so no, this isn’t a quick soldering job. Seems like some firmware would be unavoidable.

Somebody please holler at me if I’m wrong!


#68

oh indeed, TWI should have gnd and +5, sorry was stupid not to explicitly say so. and don’t disgaree that a jack connection would be more robust, but didn’t want to clamor for more parts and complexity for a feature that will likely not be relevant to very many people.

[deleted redunant junk about different midis. infovore covers it clearly in post 51.]


#69

Same boat here as well. It’s interesting but not central to the stuff I do, but would be nice to have nonetheless.


#70

Getting off topic, but as far as I’m aware you’d need something like this: https://www.juno.co.uk/products/kenton-midi-usb-convertor-host-mkii/433906-01/?currency=GBP&flt=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvsSczYOh1wIVZijTCh3NzANtEAQYASABEgJ7J_D_BwE if native midi out isn’t supported.


#71

Yep. Roland UM-One is another option. Then you could adapt 5-pin to 3.5mm.


#72

Huge interest, I just came across the original prototype thread and was considering sourcing the parts myself. Great timing.

I’d be happy with a kit, but cost / my time permitting, would be willing to pay for an assembled version.

Hardware MIDI would be nice, but not a deal breaker for me.


#74

in case anyone is confused by the slew on feature suggestions: this fadebank exists now, it works, uses usb-midi. details in the top post.


#75

I’d be interested in a kit or built.


#76

Maybe small perfboard section next to the teensy on the pcb so people can hack their wildest dreams (fidget spinners :heart:️) on their own?


#77

i’d be interested in a kit


#78

i’ll be in for built unit in EU, and i’m quite eager to see if a close integration with TT is possible!


#79

put me down for a built unit
I’ve been wanting something beautiful for use with Aalto for ages and I just couldn’t pull the trigger on the UC44

hardware midi would be nice

excited to hear about new monome material that might make use of this device too…


#80

Apologies for any confusion I appear to have brought to the thread.


#81

no worries at all, i equally helped derail. but i suspected this was starting to seem like a speculative project, so i simply wanted to clarify

i do think that i2c and mini midi are worthy avenues to investigate


#82

totally down with everyone sharing their hopes and desires and dreams :slight_smile:

i agree, i2c & midi should be included.

i’m on the road for a few more days, but when i get home i’m hoping to jump into more prototyping and design refinement.

fyi - when a production run becomes a reality i’ll start a new thread with all the details, cost, timeline, etc – so feel free to cut loose on this one!
