    Default new controller, I made it

    Whuuu,

    I just tested my new controller and its working. It is a controller that is a secondary device to add on to a setup. I designed it mix with my brother and my friend, they both have vci-100's.


    Based on u-hid http://www.u-hid.com/

    8 analog pots
    8 arcade buttons
    8 mini buttons


    with ultimarc ultrastik 360 joystick

    usb x/y joystick (not 4 or 8 way but full 128 steps on each axis)




    This device is HID. They joystick part is its own device so it uses a separate usb cord. It shows up in windows as 2 joystick/gamepads (1 for just the stick). It will also show buttions a keyboard if I want it to. I am still testing out mappings and what program I will use to make the analogs midi but I know its working. I do not have a clue how I am going to map it lots of ideas to try out. It has a shift button so I am going to try and have a fx mode and a cue/loop mode.







    Will have some better pic's soon ... sry I only have my phone camera at the moment

    I think I like building things as much as I like to mix.

    Amen to that. I'm still half way through building my own. Seeing yours finished makes me want to grab the soldering iron and get going even though its 10pm and I'm really tired.

    Well done on finishing and I hope you have a lot of fun with it.

    Looks great! What circuit board / chip have you based this on?

    Thanks for the info.

    How come you had to use two connections? Is that due to a limitation of the U-HID chip?
