MidiREX -- DIY MIDI loop sequencer


#241

Well, Ponoko managed to make and ship my order in less than 3 hours and the prototypes will be here Monday or Tuesday.

It is time for a show of hands:

Please let me know which color and style you prefer. By style I mean a case for an OLED with a window or standard LCD with a cutout for the bezel.

The available colors are the acrylics shown here

There are a lot of options for pricing depending on how many of each tint people want so I need to get an idea of who wants what. These will be kits with hardware


#242

@altitude – agreed, your version with capitalized first letter is the best!


#243

1 - Fresh Pants - fluoro blue or blue tint, standard LCD


#244

1 – Fresh Pants – fluoro blue or blue tint, standard LCD
2 - Gabby - white, standard LCD
I’ve already made my midirex with a standard LCD, and I’m assuming that it wouldn’t fit behind a window.


#245

1 – Fresh Pants – fluoro blue or blue tint, standard LCD
2 – Gabby – white, standard LCD
3 – Jojjelito – fluoro blue, OLED


#246

@altitude - when you say “these will be kits with hardware” do you mean full MidiREX kit with case, buttons, display, etc?


#247

I solved the MidiBUD Midi connector-problem like THIS…


#248

@mahtar Button caps, standoffs, lightpipes (if needed), nuts and bolts


#249

May I join? If yes:

1 – Fresh Pants – fluoro blue or blue tint, standard LCD
2 – Gabby – white, standard LCD
3 – Jojjelito – fluoro blue, OLED
4 – loopino – fluoro blue, standard LCD


#250

Will there be a choice of colours for button caps?


#251

Altitude, have you any experience with the Noritake VFDs? I wonder if it would fit the case.


#252

@sammy as a matter of fact, I have a bunch on hand and they might be OK. I’ll check when the protos arrive

@gabby probably. they are cheap


#253

I guess ideally I’d like to mound the display under the case and glue the color filter to the underside of the top panel.


#254

Btw altitude…off topic, but I emailed Noritake and they sent me a free filter for the Ambika vfd. It is much nicer than the samples. I believe you mentioned wanting one a while back so it’s definately worth a shot.


#255

Adding my choice:

5 - shwanton - Fluoro Orange, standard LCD


#256

@sammy I got the whole filter pack when I ordered mine. The big problem with the VFD is the big ass inductor coil on the front so as long as the the panel can clear that, we should be good


#257

1 – Fresh Pants – fluoro blue or blue tint, standard LCD

When people say white, are we talking matte or gloss? (I recommend matte)

@altitude – my “white” is “matte white”
