The Home of Southpaw MIDIboxing ;)
Here I plan to blog my progress on all things MIOS from now on. There are two areas I'll be focussing on, for now - stock MIDIBoxes, and a customized sequencer that I have been planning off and on for a couple of years now.
I had a bit of a disaster recently and lost pretty much everything I owned, so I really have to start from scratch all over again. I hope that by sharing my experiences in building starting from nothing, I will lend some experience to others starting out later on. This is where the stock MIDIBoxes come into play. I'll be breaking it down into these sections:
I've never done an electronic project on a scale anywhere near this, but I have been in the IT industry for over 12 years, and I'm rather partial to mechanical stuff (particularly aeronautical) and in my time I have learned a few things which I KNOW are going to apply here. As with all things, you get out what you put in - and that starts from the very beginning. It's important to start building from a good foundation,
These projects will be built as standard applications as per ucapps.de … But to call any DIY project “stock” is misleading, because every project will differ a little. I will surely do customised casing and control surfaces for most of these.
Now, I'm a very busy man, so while I'm taking my sweet time preparing for and building the above,(don't expect anything to happen too quickly around here! All my time is used up, earning money to pay for these toys hehehe) I'll also be working on my baby:
MIDIBox Sequencer vX The vX is an algorithmically controlled loop sequencer with multiple syncronised clocks and dynamic internal repatching.
Analog Switch Matrix In the somewhat distant future I will work on a digitally controlled analog switch matrix.
While I continue building my toolkit I am also working with other MIDIBoxers on a few other bits and pieces:
