Midi-Interface Progress

I am just working hard on the Midi-Interface and want to present you
some results:

First a well known song played via Midi notes while using 4 Midi-knobs
for changing the P64's parameters and also the slide:
http://www.firestarter-music.de/prophet … ssline.mp3

2nd the same song played via Midi notes using the sequencer and
changing some preset instruments:
http://www.firestarter-music.de/prophet … uencer.mp3

Also Drum triggering is working fine.
Synchronizing is working anyway.
Basically all functions for the middle-class solution are working.

Heres a photo of the prototype.
http://www.firestarter-music.de/prophetcart/prototype.jpg
Thats the full-all-inclusive version which will also definitely change.

The new Forum is also nearly ready to be opened.

The next step is the PS/2 mouse integration

connector.. what is that 4th connector.. looks like a multimeter test
lead.

w00t! That looks like some expensive baby! :-D
I bet the 2 d-subs are MIDI-controllable potmeters you can connect to
the joyports, right?

Integration in the MIDI interface?
There are PS/2 mods readily available from the net.

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

Your work look awesome.

I was wondering...how difficult will be for an average user to build a DIY one? SID2SID has been easy to me even if I have not much experience. But this looks quite complex!

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

It is definitely more difficult and not a beginners DIY.

On the other hand, what you see is the full edition with all features. Simpler ones will be released aswell.

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

Will they be available to buy? Of will it be DIY only?
I don't know if i get the Sid2Sid build, and then this kind of monster? No Way.

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

Still don't know what that 4th cable is.  The midi cable is clear, the 2 game port connectors are clear.. but.. what' that fouith one?  looks kinda like a power cable.. but.. isn't the thing powered by the user port?

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

Thats a power cable. The other middle class version won't need it.

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

Looks good firestarter!

I gotta say i'm a little disappointed that the CC's are not handled internally through the user port, but I guess we can't have everything wink That said, I suppose that means that the POTS can be used live if your controller doesn't have any digipots on?
Maybe you could add four encoders to the design so that you've always got pots at hand?
Other than that, I think it looks like a great design. I think I'd build it in a standalone enclosure with a cable to connect to the user port, I wouldn't want something that heavy stressing my motherboard.
Do you have a complete list of features for each version? I can't find it on your site.

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

Oh, and I forgot! You have a red LED on your C64, did you put that in yourself or did it ship like that? Not that i'm an anorak or anything....

It's nearly impossible to handle the CC's by the userport. Too much processing time needed which is more usefull to get a nice sound out of the C64.

If you don't connect the digipots you can always use your selfmade-pots aswell of course.

>Maybe you could add four encoders to the design so that you've always got pots at hand?
Hmm..that would need quite some more work for me. So i think i won't implement it.

>Do you have a complete list of features for each version? I can't find it on your site.
Not yet, i think i got to add some news to the homepage. But i was very busy with more important stuff...the forum  for example.

I guess thats standard? I didn't change this C64 except for SID2SID.

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

I guess that's fair enough, I wouldn't expect you to devote all your free time to an open source project like this.
I await your next update then!

With regards to the red LED, i've since seen a few online, I wonder if it's an american thing? Mine is green, as are all the other C64C's i've seen here, strange.

Re: Midi-Interface Progress

Wow, I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing progress on this. Did you collaborate with the Prophet 64 maker for the code in the cartridge to use this?
