Enjoy this live performance from Ici & Lui: a guitar, a trumpet, a sampler, 2 vermona synthesizers and a MIDIbox SEQ!

This is a demo of a MIDIbox based DIY project that emulates both PROG- and PCM-cards for the Korg Wavestation line of synthesizers. These units were produced in the early 90s. While they are not exactly collector’s items, the RAM-, ROM-, and PCM-cards for these are very sought after today. The DIY project demoed here aims at replacing a RAM/ROM (PROG) and a PCM (waveform) card with a little MIDIbox-based circuitry and software that allows to load the corresponding data from SD card. Of course, sound- and waveform-data can also be read from card(s) and saved onto the SD card…
Live jam using a MIDIBox SammichSID, Access Virus, Low-Gain LSDJMC^2, Yamaha RM1x and Mackie CFX12. Controlled my a rather delapidated Evoloution MK-149.
MBSEQ V4 remote controlled by my new Button/Duo-LED matrix prototype.
The frontpanel hasn’t been created yet, and it’s difficult to push the mini buttons without button caps. But playing with this toy is already a lot of fun!
The BLM firmware is running on a dedicated PIC based core module and communicates with MBSEQ via MIDI. The optimized protocol is fast enough to achieve high refresh rates between 350 fps (if only a single line is changed) and 20 fps (if all 512 LEDs are changed).
Chaos Matrix is a custom built programmer for a Oberheim Matrix 1000 analog synthesizer. It’s capable of manipulating all 126 voice parameters including 10 programmable matrix modulations buses, ramp generators, 5 point tracking generator, 3 five stage envelopes, 2 oscillators, 2 LFOs, and much more.
It features edit buffer synchronization for visual feedback and inspection of all Matrix 1000 voices parameters, patch compare, patch init, advanced performance options for some parameters as well as containing all 1000 original patch names. Seeing a name make it a lot easier remembering favorite patches instead of numbers alone.
Chaos Matrix is currently a work in progress and is nearly complete. It was built with help from the MBHP (MidiBox Hardware Project) using the MIOS operating system. It uses 1 DIN module, 1 AIN module, 1 DOUT module and 1 core with a PIC18F4620 microprocessor.
Check out this demo video which demonstrates the new possibilities:

I made a really simple quick and dirty video of the making of my MBSID.
I was looking for videos on making a MBSID when i first started and couldn’t find much of anything, so i decided to make my own video along the way in hope that it would explain the process to those who are interested and have no idea where to start, like i was!
It is nowhere near “finished” i would say, but “functional” and i have been using it for new music which you see in the video. it is a very very minimal setup for a MBSID.
i hope it helps someone and enjoy!
