After 350 kits sold (including 556 SIDs), I have finally got to the end of the waiting list. Woot!
There will be a final batch of 50 kits in November. I don’t have plans to keep lots of pre-packed kits in stock, therefore, once the last batch is sold, YOU CANT HAZ SAMMICHSID! There are still plenty of kits available in the final batch.
Yes, this is some shameless self-promotion to boost sales so I can finish with my routine 50 kit batch and sell off all the PCBs and parts I have in stock.
If you’re interested in getting a sammichSID, or want to find out WTF this thing is, all the information is here
Made in Mexico by sineSurfer:
Created by Ander aka. ALEXander aka. Wackazong.
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).
Here a first impression of the virtual MIDIbox SEQ V4 for the iPad.
As you can see, there is some space for additional buttons or display functions.
Due to the delayed delivery in Europe I won’t be able to test and finish the emulation before june…
Currently I cannot estimate if the timings will be so stable like on a real MBSEQ, however together with the upcoming OSC option we will get at least a nice remote control.
A quick demo of a keytar I built out of a Commodore 64. It uses two SID 6581 chips and was made using the Midibox Sid platform from www.ucapps.de. Better video to follow later.
