I live in Melbourne, Victoria , Australia.
In the real world I work as a Theatre Technician.
This is my first project. It started out very simple, but has grown into a massive project.
It uses a custom application to allow for up to 8 CV pedals, and an LCD display.
I use this as an extension to the Behringer FC1010 Pedal Board to give more control over my V-Amp Pro.
While in development I realised that it wouldn't be that hard to expand the code to make it powerful floorboard.
is the spawn of pedal box. It's a massive floorboard controller supporting of 8 pedals and 32 buttons. Banks provide 128 virtual buttons.
This is going to be my main daw controller. The main console will have:
There will also be 2 remote consoles. Featuring:
The remote consoles will only have a DINX3 and a DOUTx3 inside.
They will patch into the DIN/DOUT chain via Cat5 at the main console
Software is stock standard 64e.
This project is still in the very early stages of construction.
I'm building this for a friend who wanted access to flash buttons for Light Factory (PC based DMX lighting controller), without spending thousands on the wings.
