Introduction: Design Your Own Controllers
First Prize in the
Jack Daniel's Independence Project Contest
Jack Daniel's Independence Project Contest Entry
One minute is not much time to discuss the technical details, so I will include a few of them here for others who are interested in the project...
- Controllers are modular.
- They support USB-MIDI.
- Enclosure and body is currently being redesigned to be more professional and robust.
- The current Teensy Monster supports ~23 analog inputs, ~24 digital i/o, ~8 interrupts (for encoders). Plans are to develop a number of different Teensy Monster modules with different i/o configurations.
- The project is, and will always be, open source.
- All components are panel mount.
- No programming necessary - of course the code can easily be hacked and modified - it is written using the uber friendly Arduino environment.
- Pricing is dynamically updated while designing the controller using the web app.
- Pricing depends on which Teensy Monster, enclosure type, materials, or components you choose. A fully assembled controller will also cost more than a DIY kit.
- Ideally, anyone can follow the documentation to assemble the kit.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
