    Default Leo Bodnar is still selling his boards? (BU0836X)

    Hello,

    I want to make my own midi controller. I need the BU836X but the leo bodnar web seems like is no longer updated.

    anyone know if it still can be ordered from his website?


    thanks.

    just out of interest, why are you interested in the X model, and not the cheaper BU0836 version? they both seem to support the same number of inputs...

    because the 'X' is 12 bit-resolution and the connections are simple (no need matrix, no diodes).

    anyway I have the same problem: Leo Bodnar does not answer emails and I don't know if BU0836 or BU0836X are still available.


    thanks for replying.

    Ean had the same problem when he was looking at making DIY controllers back in 2008 I seem to recall. It might have been because Ean was asking for some free samples to do a review? Dunno... but anyway, I've heard on other sites that the guy who runs that site is notoriously bad at replying to emails in a timely fashion lol...

    Afaik, the site is up and running and he's still open for business. It's done with paypal so if nothing is shipped raise a paypal dispute?

    Also, have you seen the link in my sig? For around 5 you get 20 buttons via USB HID. If you then buy the BU0836A (12 bit version - http://www.leobodnar.com/products/BU0836A), that'll give you an additional 8 potentiometers (without having to use diodes or a matrix). Would likely save you a fair bit of money... depends on if 20 buttons / 8 analogues is enough?

    I'm sorry for digging an old thread, but your sig has 4 links and in none of them I can find a card for the 20 buttons. Is it possible to give a pointer? Thanks in advance

    Thanks, I ended up buying the simple BU0836 but I'm sorry because I should have bought the BU0836A because the rotary encoders support.

    Thing is, I'm a total noob in this and it's just for learning a lot so I guess it's not a big deal yet
