|So in the last few days I've finished the controller test
board, ironed out a few bugs in the firmware code, hooked up
the midi ports and tested that they are sending and
the right data. The board looks like it's doing all the
things it's meant too. Which means I can now start moving
ahead on making the kit available. What's left to do is
up the documentation of how to build a kit from the parts
PCB and work out the business details, like shipping
weights/costs and a purchase page.
Today I also printed out the new graphics that are laid out
for the Hammond box and checked them for accuracy.
It's sitting next to the prototype box, which is a different
aspect ratio. The plan is to get someone to print it out
onto adhesive backed vinyl and then stick it straight onto
the aluminium, cut the holes out with a hobby knife and then
poke all the pots, switches and LED's through. There are
some more knobs coming from the UK for both my own
controller and the kits.
