Re: Custom simple EPROM

Ian Ockwell-smith

I Had a hairbrained scheme to use a Teensy as the brain of an old Nobels MF2 midi foot controller but gave up as I couldn’t put the time in to learn programming. If you already know that then it should be possible to connect up the FCB’s F/Sw’s and Exp pedals to the teensy (or similar). This would give you complete control of all parameters...........
......I think.

Sounds good reading it out! In practice I have no idea how easy it would be.

Not sure this helps you at all but am interested to see how it develops.
Good luck.

I want to make an EPROM that:

  • sends momentary CC signals for each pedal including up down
  • sends value of expression pedals on change (usual behaviour)
  • accepts midi in for leds (on/off) above pedals and in config bar (including value on 7 seg displays)
  • accepts midi in for relays (on/off - including leds)
  • doesn't need to have presets
  • doesn't need to change its settings (although I might add this in the future.
I plan to the trouble is, I don't know where to start.

Is it written in C? or something else? How do I listen to midi, how do I target leds or buttons?

I wish I could decompile the official firmware.

Can anyone give me some tips?

P.s. I am a software engineer and amongst other languages I know Java and Swift an d have used C# and small amounts of C and have written to PIC controllers when I was doing electronics A-level (UK) 11 years ago but can't really remember it very well.
