The Midas MR / Behringer XR digital mixing consoles are cheap and powerful. With no tangible control surface doing quick and current actions can be inconvenient.
A Wemos D1 with its onboard ESP8266 and four PB-86 push-buttons (I like their vintage-looking style) are all you need to control your console on your WiFi network.

After tinkering with the
SharpOSC library, I managed to set up a bidirectionnal connection with my Behringer X12 digital mixing console.
The orginal OSCSender / OSCListener class won’t work as we must share the same socket for sending and receiving OSC messages.

A few days ago, I read
an article on hackaday about a new time diagram editor.
It’s called WaveDrom, and it’s an online service. With a few lines of JSON code, you can draw neat time diagrams.
Here’s a picture of what I did:
YM2149 bus modes
And here’s the corresponding code:

Midi Development Board
I have sometimes to deal with some quick and dirty MIDI projects, and wiring a socket on a breadboard can be quite delicate because of the traction force from the cable. So, I’ve designed a small dev board who features a MIDI input (with its 6N137 active optocoupler), a MIDI output, and three RCA connectors.

The PCB files of this board revision are sent to the factory. This new version will include a mono switch and separate channel outputs. These boards should be error-free, and therefore sellable. 🙂
Today, I just recieved the first ten PCBs for my chiptune synth kit. The black solder screen looks really good. 😀
I’m now waiting for the last parts to make a prototype and to design its case.
Here are my YM2149 Synth schematics.
Ten PCBs will be manufactured this month, as a first test. 🙂
No Arduino bootloader anymore, only plain avr-gcc code.
rev. B is available–
I’ve got some messages asking me if I planned to sell a finished version of my YM2149/AY-3-8910 synth. The short answer is: yes.
I’m working on the PCB and the firmware of this synth. As I’m not going to sell thousands of it, it will certainly be sold as a ready-to-solder kit.
Schematics and software code will be public. 🙂
More to come!
I’m still working on my YM2149 synth project.
