Hey guys, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So after a long break since i bought the kit i've returned to get this brainv2 MIDI mixer controller build in motion over the holidays, pretty happy with design and most issues now ironed out! i'll be using a few omni board modules which are already made and good to go, i'm using the slide boards for channel faders at 40mm centers, which will also have pots and encoders on the channel using hacker method for 'custom layout'.
1) When using panel mount pots, in varied positions, would it be best to, use an omni board and directly wire each pot to the omni board, (rather than placing the components onto the board as normal) following the instructions to build a 16B for example, then another omni with 16E for my encoders, or would wiring like this cause noise problems?
2) I want to use a number of tactile switches in the project and am wondering is it possible to have a non programmable LED across the switch to indicate on/off with the switch? i'm guessing it might ok if switch is used as an analog ? but ok on the button headers and/or button matrix holes too? or possible at all? just curious, i think i've still plenty to play with out of the led headers anyway!
Any info in the archives about the old push and slide boards? i.e the connections and about the led holes on the slide boards?
One final thing, i have some push button encoders, i can only assume there is no way i can use these with the omni boards and somehow have access to switch pins by putting them through the pot holes on the board, a long shot i know but... you never know.....!!!!?
