Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format – Part 2

This post is the second part of my series to document the building of a "CDR format" (CD Rack Format) panel version of my Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer. Part 1 detailed the build and testing of the panel. This part updates and enhances the Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer code to run on the panel. https://youtu.be/YmQ7j-tDudkContinue reading Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format – Part 2

Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format

When I put together the Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer it was with an eye to creating some kind of "modular" style panel format.  This post documents the building of a "CDR format" (CD Rack Format) panel version. This part details the build and testing of the panel. Part 2 will update and enhance the Multi-Mode MIDI … Continue reading Multi-Mode MIDI Step Sequencer – CDR Format

Pi Pico PIO Poly Tone Step Sequencer – Part 2

In this project I've added some basic IO to the Pi Pico PIO Poly Tone Step Sequencer. https://youtu.be/a5Mkd0wnbzs Warning! I strongly recommend using old or second hand equipment for your experiments.  I am not responsible for any damage to expensive instruments! These are the key tutorials for the main concepts used in this project: MIDI, MicroPython … Continue reading Pi Pico PIO Poly Tone Step Sequencer – Part 2

Arduino MIDI 7 Segment Controller – Part 2

As mentioned in my previous post,  the Arduino MIDI 7 Segment Controller is ripe for turning into a self-contained module.  To keep it all relatively small, I opted to build an add-on board for an Arduino Nano. Warning! I strongly recommend using old or second hand equipment for your experiments.  I am not responsible for any … Continue reading Arduino MIDI 7 Segment Controller – Part 2

Simple Potentiometer Breakout

I've been using potentiometers quite a bit in recent projects and now have two boards that include options to link out to potentiometers to control boards too, so thought it useful to have another, smaller, breakout to make experimenting easy. Warning! I strongly recommend using old or second hand equipment for your experiments.  I am … Continue reading Simple Potentiometer Breakout

Arduino MIDI VS1003 Shield – Part 2

Having left a good half of a proto shield free in my Arduino MIDI VS1003 Shield I thought it would be useful to add in some potentiometers, a MIDI link and an optional indicator LED. This documents the build process continuing where the previous project left off. Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or second hand … Continue reading Arduino MIDI VS1003 Shield – Part 2

Arduino MIDI Mux Step Sequencer – Part 2

By way of completing this initial look at multiplexing potentiometers, this is how I used a Sparkfun 16 port multiplexer in my Arduino MIDI Step Sequencer. https://youtu.be/MiPyJrPlmVs Warning! I strongly recommend using an old or second hand keyboard for your MIDI experiments.  I am not responsible for any damage to expensive instruments! These are the key Arduino … Continue reading Arduino MIDI Mux Step Sequencer – Part 2
