The project uses the MIDI CPU, which can be used as a MIDI "brain" for DIY projects.
This zip file includes the parts list (Open Office .ods), design drawings (Corel Draw .cdr & .png) and MIDI SysEx files (.txt and binary .syx) used in the project.
Step 1: Select a Cigar Box
Considering the following characteristics:
- Overall shape . An ideal box has low height relative to the width and depth.
- Build quality . Choose a box that is sturdy and looks nice.
- Panel thickness. This can be important. Many panel-mount controls and connectors are designed for metal panels, which are relatively thin. A thick wood panel can make it difficult to mount the controls. Try to find a panel thickness of less than 6mm (1/4 inch).
