Monstrously awesome! :D
Thanks!

Here's another recent build:

it's a "Hougaku Conductor" (a Japanese music keyboard thing) triggered by a 16 step sequencer via a patchwire interface. The sequencer is unit uses 3 4017 ICs - 1 for clock divider and 2 for the steps

here's a video:

even aside from their use as tools, they look beautiful :love:

2nd attempt at this.. this time over digital audio
It doesn't matter how it sounds..
..as long as it has BASS and it's LOUD!

Wow, that's a great idea! Lots of audio interfaces have S/PDIF I/O that goes unused. I wonder if you could use surround sound encoding to get 5 MIDI ports from a single cable. You would need a plug-in of some kind to encode the data but I assume you are already doing that to turn MIDI into audio. There is a Expert Sleepers interface that does decodes 5 channels of CV from a dedicated plug-in..

my SPDIF is only stereo, and so is the big SOIC chip there (the spdif interface)
thing is, a whole MIDI byte is encoded as amplitude into one audio sample, and there a bunch of more bits that are usable in this sample
at FS=44100Hz, the MIDI byte period is 14.112 audio samples, i only need one of them, so i could use the other 13 for another 13 MIDI output streams..
so 5 MIDI ports are easy, just the mcu will have to be changed to the bigger one that has more UARTs

yes, i already wrote something to see if it'll work, it works on my m-audio audiophile 2496

Awesome work! Feels like some equipment from a retro sci fi movie.
