I think this is a real shame it’s turned out his way. For me iOS provides a much better interface for what VCV does. And I’ve found MiRack a great way to work on patches whilst on the go. Assuming the 3 parties can’t reach an accommodation then I hope VCV can find a way to make the move to iOS (perh...

I’ve spent a couple of hours with this - so far so good. Works well with an Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro 10.5 - though it takes a bit of getting used to two finger drags to navigate, plus pencil to operate, plus the occasional unexpected movement of a module.. I hope to find out how to adjust the tou...

Frequency Central revisions

In case you missed it, FC seem to be on fire lately. After what seemed to be a decade of slow releases / deep modules / perhaps staid design, they seem to knocking out really tasty revisions: - really nice looking panels - attenuators on inputs - working / complete Tayda links from BOM (should be ch...

I’ve always liked thonk’s build docs. As kits became common, its been interesting to observe how the quality of docs improved as the likes of RYO arrived on the scene. Befacos went from spanglish liberally sprinkled with errors to the current excellent standard. MI were always the best, and it was a...

Thanks both! I hadn’t realised Wacom do displays as well as drawing tablets. They look very nice, but a bit expensive for me at the moment, and I also need something more portable. If I can find a way to make VCV work for me, I think its something I could come back to. Ditch the mouse forever and ge...

Mouseless VCV

When VCV first came out I found using a mouse with it quite painful (due to RSI). So I parked it but am now keen to revisit it for v1.0. I'd like to hear how well people are getting on with 1. Alternate input devices - wacom tablets, ipads as touchpad, keyboard shortcuts, even touchscreens on PC (I'...

Thanks both for your pointers - I’m experimenting with both notion and Xequence with some success.

Not me, the "subscribe by providing your personal info" scheme is a deal breaker for me. There's absolutely no good reason to require that. They could just post it on their site if it's free or donation or even for a reasonable fee Yeah I hate that stuff. But just needed a random surname to subscribe

Notation / composition on iOS

Hi all I find the process of capturing my ideas at the piano onto manuscript painful - I think I’ve got both a short attention span and poor memory! So it turns into a creative block. I’ve got a a Yamaha avantgrande (has midi in / out). ideally there would be a super simple to use iPad app that capt...

A few years ago I got a CGS Serge Resonant Eq II panel and pcbs from Thonk and it sat in my backlog for ages as I realised sourcing all the parts was a faff (tons of different caps, each one available from different places) . I saw Elby was stocking full kits so I somewhat cheekily sent a mail just ...

Befaco muxlicer is a recent favourite. Its quite a quick build yet tons of functionality.

I find panel parts most satisfying (sliders etc), due to their tactile nature and that you’re on the home straight of the build. And befaco have squeezed in as many as they could fit.

I’ve watched some of the second video. I think the sheer ambition of this - the shop, instructional videos, the case / interface quality, on years of midibox development - is just awesome. I hope I can soon carve out the time to do this, and that that time converges with case and full BOM availabili...

Me too. MidiBox has been on my radar for years - having enough key bits, BOMs, and a decent case in one place at the same time would be tipping point for me.

Folks running the shop seem very helpful / responsive too. I’m hoping that they stock a Euro breakout panel.

Two regrets. Not sold as such - one give back, one trade - but still ...

It seemed in mint condition until it died during a bo...

That would be a breakout according to http://midibox.org/forums/topic/20885-midiphy-seq-v4/
But if someone comes up with a panel that the ribbon cable plugs into, I'd be quite happy with that.
