MIDI Transport Controller
Hi, The MIDI transport controller is a great looking project and I wanted to make something similar for my Home Ardour setup. I was reading through however and I got a dead link when it came to the shuttle sketch - http://projects.bechter.com/mtc/mtc_shuttlesketch.html I was wondering if this was uploaded as I was really getting into it! Also, would you have any objection to me making my own box after reading your stuff -- home personal use of course. Thanks Mark
Thanks for your interest in the project and sorry about the dead link. The project and web site are both still a work in progress.
The main reason that the transport control project remains incomplete is that I haven't found a suitable enclosure for it. Additionally, I haven't decided whether to make it USB or MIDI connected. MIDI has the advantage of a longer max cable length but requires external power. USB (acting as a MIDI device) can provide power in the same cable but limits total cable length.
Feel free to use any of the code or design in your own projects, non-commercially. I encourage it. And, please check back in the future, as I do intend to finish that project and have some good ideas for others that may appear on the site.
