    Default which sanwa buttons?! RESOLVED

    Hi,

    I currently cant afford a midifighter, so am intending to build my own!

    ive found a UK source for the Sanwa buttons but can anyone tell me which ones the midifighter actually uses??

    many thanks for your time,

    awesome thanks!

    ah yea thought it might, currently mucking about with a couple of other ideas, abusing some old midi controllers giving them a much needed update, theyll do the job till i can afford a midi fighter,

    did you build yours exactly to the midifighter spec?

    OBSF-24 is what we used on the midifighter.

    If ya want to do it on the cheap I think the best option is too forget midi and LEDs and hack up an old HID device.

    thanks! got 16 ordered

    and that is indeed the plan for version one!, currently cant afford anything like the UMC32 or the Livid Diy Brain, so gutted an old USB keyboard and got it all mapped out, already started work on a parrallel version using an old apple bluetooth keyboard, could be quite cool or could just cause some major hassle with interference and connectivity issues?! but was thinking, that CAPS lock, shift and alt. should provide multiple banks of buttons?

    also have an old MPD16 that ive never really liked the feel of the pads so that could be next for the chop

    itll all be up on here when its finished!

    Sound promising, but also like it will cost some time. Hopefully we will be able to see the result, once

    hasnt been too time consuming so far, will start a thread with pics of proccess at some point, the only realy time consuming bit was working out all the traces that form the grid inside the keyboard, but that was just a little fiddly, nothing too complicated
