Starfire build res

hello, many years ago i bought a starfire 8x8 kit (logic, button grid, pads, case) from a forum member and in my infancy i plugged a usb into the logic board before all the components had been soldered on. luckily i received a spare logic board so i’m going to attempt to finish this build in 2016.

i read that the starfire brand has been tarnished in the monome community since i was last active but i’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction. i’ve got some old build instructions but i have a few questions. i see that there are many other options for building a monome clone these, but i’d rather not have to deal with getting new buttons and case etc etc, if possible.

if i cannot get the logic board working, would it be possible to use the button grid board with one of the other homebrew logic boards floating around? such as the bibo 40h logic board? im hoping my board is non-specific, it seems as though the contact are sent to two 16 pin outs…

thank!

That will work. Arduinomes will work too.
