If not “in main.asm, you have to set “ENABLE_MOTORDRIVER” to 0, this disables the motor control.” as per TK here
Simply the same pins also for the second LCD excluding the pin E of the second LCD, because that is connected with pin J10:RC (pin RC.4 of the PIC CONTROLLER) at the core module.
For the moment only KS0108 and HD61202 compatible displays like the 64240A LCD from Displaytech. Other controller types like the T6963C are supported likewise by MIOS, are however too slow, so that they can lead to MIDI Buffer overruns.
No. Look here Premade PCBs & Kits
That can happen, if no Motorfader is attached. In main.asm set the ENABLE_MOTORDRIVER flag to the value set 0, afterwards this effect should disappear.
No, in the Logic/Mackie Encoder movements are defined as relative Events.
This means that the midibox sends a signal for “+1” when you turn your encoder clockwise, and a slightly different signal for “-1” when you turn the encoder anti-clockwise. If you use a potentiometer, the MidiBox can only send the absolute value of the pot, and will only do so when it changes.
Check out encoders for specifications and where to order.
That is, not yet.
There is nothing to prevent a Midibox LC/C4 box from working, but some research needs to be done. When Mackie made the LC, and then the MCU, they made the protocol public. This was probably done to encourage software application support. Unfortunately, the Mackie C4 is not a public protocol. While it is most likely based on a similar design to the MCU, the two are not interchangable.
Short answer: Now is your time to step up and do this research. Make the C4 possible, and win the adoration of your peers!
Ok, I know this isnt the entire German version but Babelfish doesnt provide pure translations. The Midibox LC has also gone through major improvements too. Post your updates, tips, tricks and designs here and help give back to a community that has given so much.
Dietmar wrote an interesting HowTo for using MBLC as display and meter unit for Nuendo - the controllers (Motorfaders/Buttons/LEDs) are provided from a Tascam US2400 unit, so that the construction was easier than building a complete MIDIbox LC: see his homepage
