Re: The 2021 Show Us Your DIY Builds Thread!

I finally updated my Arduino multi-mode 4x MIDI Eurorack interface in 6HP (thread here) , now with PCB, PCB front panel, additional TRS-A input and a proper calibration procedure! I am very proud of the result. It's all available on GitHub: https://github.com/joeSeggiola/arduino-eurorack-projects/tr...

Re: Korg SQ-64

but with slew between mod steps (so as to prevent audible aliasing, and which I think you can already do), one ought to be able to create something close to an LFO shape of choice, no? Yes, right. But it'll be tedious to enter steps individually, and cycle length will always be tied to the sequence...

Re: Korg SQ-64

I don’t have an SQ-64 but looking through the manual I’m surprised it also isn’t a box of LFOs – it would have been quite useful and fairly easy for Korg to include a little handful of high quality digital LFOs in there, free running or synced, standalone or superimposed or intermodulatable. Nice i...

Re: Korg SQ-64

When I went to leave a bad review of the first cables a few weeks after I’d ordered them from Amazon, I noticed the description had changed, so they were then billed only as DIN to jack audio cables. Probably it's someone re-selling or drop shipping from Alibaba or something like that. Not much tim...

EDIT: I believe it's a Type-A vs Type-B problem. I'm learning new things every day.
Yep. Korg always used the "Type-A" adapter, which recently became part of the official MIDI standard. Unfortunately "Type-B" adapters are still very common since Arturia used that for its popular controllers.

"m" stands for "milli", it means a thoundsand part, that is 1A = 1000mA.

No, it's 0.7A = 700mA.

Re: MIDI 4+1: Arduino-powered polyphonic and monophonic MIDI to 4x CV/gate interface in 6HP

The schematic may look like a MIDI output but is actually used as a MIDI input. The 220ohm resistor from pin 4 in the DIN connector to +5V has no function and should be removed. In the worst case the transmitter may be powered by 3.3V and there will otherwise be a constant 3.8mA flowing between the...

Re: MakeNoise Morphagene

What makes a good Morphagene reel? Normalize to -3db or below to avoid playback clipping. High MORPH setting won't magically dissolve transients, remove them beforehand if you want "ambient textures". If you intend to heavily slow down your sounds, boost the high ends or they'll disappear (and vice...

I just picked up Pigments 3 also, and it's very impressive, but it still insists on having MIDI input before it does anything. [Edit: correction: you can use the onscreen keyboard and press the HOLD button and it will hold down a note forever. Solves that problem.)
THANKS!

Re: PCBs as Front Panels ?

I personally use black plastic ones ( or nylon idk) as they are not conducting, but it is not really important. I get it. I have metal ones, but I can't find a measure that is exactly the same as the height of Thonkiconn jack plugs, so I tend not to use spacers at all. If they are a little taller, ...

Re: PCBs as Front Panels ?

I have to warn you that the graphics rendering engine in it really dumbs stuff down, so it's good to import it in huge files, and then shrink the graphics to size manually within EasyEDA This happens with the built-in image tool. If you use easyeda-svg-import your vectors won't be dumbed down. The ...

Re: PCBs as Front Panels ?

I designed the front panels with Inkspace and exported them as bmp and imported them in the highest resolution on eagle with the bmpimport script (the import takes a lot of time). If you use Inkscape, try using EasyEDA instead, there's a user-made addon to import pure SVG files, no need to rasteriz...

Re: Sync JamMan loop pedals to Eurorack tempo with Arduino

I guess it is possible with a Arduino Mini Pro (which has 1 serial port?), because the author of SyncMan has done it. The Mini Pro is quite similar to the Nano I used. There's only one serial port, yes. Looking at the schematic in the ZIP file, looks like they used the hardware serial both for read...

Re: Korg SQ-64

If your instruments have MIDI Thru ports, you can chain them and just use different MIDI channels for each one of them (SQ-64 is easy to configure for this use case). This way the instruments will respond to their MIDI channel and pass the rest along the MIDI Thru port for the other ones. So just t...

Does 2 midi-outs mean you can connect only 2 midi-instruments, such as Volcas? Or can you connect more using different midi channels?
