Teensy MIDI USB foot controller for controlling Mobius Looper

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Thrifleganger wrote this instructable detailing his Teensy MIDI USB foot controller for controlling Mobius Looper: The concept is quite simple and straightforward. You press a button, the arduino interprets the signal arriving from the button as a midi "control change" signal (typically represented as MIDI CC), and this signal can be mapped...

Easy Stepper motor controller

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Weiss has written up documentation on his Stepper motor controller: The reason for this project was my frustration over how much it takes to just test a simple stepper motor. To test a stepper motor you usually need some kind of MCU most likely a Arduino, your breadboard, cables, some kind of...

TinyG G-code motor controller

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

TinyG is a multi-axis motor controller for DIY CNC machines. Most CNC controllers receive instructions from a PC, but the TinyG executes G-code directly. By running the Gcode interpreter directly on the chip it avoids the expense and problems of trying to precisely control step timing with a general purpose...
