MidiREX -- DIY MIDI loop sequencer


#261

Would it be possible to fit the entire VFD shebang under the top used as a color filter? Would be hot, but I’ll venture that the VFD is probably too tall, or?

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
5 – kvitekp – fluoro blue, standard LCD
6 – kvitekp – white, standard LCD
7 – sammy123 – flouro blue, Noritake VFD, or standard LCD if VFD won’t fit
8 - sd88me - matte white, standard LCD

i have rectangular buttons already… and it costs $40 to ship from digikey to australia :frowning:
what should I do? can you help altitude ? :slight_smile:


#263

@sd88me round button caps will be included with the case

@Jojjelito Not even close height wise, VFDs are taller than any LCD ive seen, it has to stick out


#264

@altitude: OLED it is then :slight_smile:


#265

Lets try this again.

8 – sd88me – matte white, standard LCD
9 - shwanton – fluoro blue, standard LCD


#266

So is that a no for a chance at a MIDIBud case?

09 – shwanton – fluoro blue, standard LCD
10 – ParanormalPatroler – white, standard LCD (is this the safest choice for ignorabimus?)


#267

I dont have a midibud so a case is a no-go. The way the midi sockets sit on that pretty much prevents the use of a standard case since you need 22mm of clearance for the midi sockets and there are no tact buttons that tall


#268

I have two MIDIBud PCBs, but unfortunately I haven’t started working on them yet and I’m not the quickest DIYer. If I manage to assemble both anytime soon, and if you’re willing to, I’d be happy to ship you one so that you can work on a case. Just a suggestion.

#272

@altitude, what do you mean by standard case (for MidiBud)? Can’t you mount the midi sockets to the underside of the board? That’s what I was planning to do.


#273

@coffee

You can but you need to cut traces and rewire the sockets since moving to the back will mirror the outputs. I need to think about that case some more since it’s not a trivial job as is


#274

@altitude, Yes you’re correct. It might be easier to modify the sockets and use some jumper wires to swap the pins 2 and 4. Also the DC connector is likely to cause some trouble.

#277

@Jojjelito
do you want a window for the oled case or just leave it without a cutout and window?

i see the concensus is floro blue and matte white, i would like to wrap this up this week (prototypes are already at my place)


#278

If matte white is the most common preference I’m changing mine to that in order to make things simpler.

03 – Jojjelito – fluoro blue, OLED
04 – loopino – fluoro blue, standard LCD

06 – kvitekp – white, standard LCD
07 – sammy123 – flouro blue, Noritake VFD, or standard LCD if VFD won’t fit
08 – sd88me – matte white, standard LCD
09 – shwanton – fluoro blue, standard LCD
10 – ParanormalPatroler – matte white, standard LCD
11 – sparky- matte white, standard LCD
12 – dukankallemegper – fluoro blue, standard LCD
13 – eelco – white (or matte white), standard LCD
14 – zardoz – fluoro blue, standard LCD
15 – varthdader – white, Noritake VFD, or standard LCD if VFD won’t fit


#279

I’m also fine with matte white


#280

Although I’ve just counted and only two people originally put matte white as their first choice
