Project Questions / Guidelines / Re: Rotary Encoder

Hi Hernando!!!

The rotary encoder MIDI project went well, I ended up with a cardboard box with 16 encoders :-)

After a lot of tests, I realized, that rotary encoders were not so good for the kind of controller I want, that I would only need a couple of those to make fine adjustments. Now, I would like to build a conteoller with loads of potentiometers, some push buttons, leds and just a few encoders.

I found a multiplexer http://www.sparkfun.com/products/299 , is it compatible with the board??? Could you please help me on this one? :-)

Many thanks For your support Hernando!

I really appreciate it! I look forward to learn from the new tutorial!!!

Hi Hernando!

I'll give those documents a look as soon as I get more boards. For the moment, I would like to know, if I can send MIDI messages directly from the board via USB. Is it possible?

Cheers :-)

I just finished the prototype yesterday and took it to a club to play with it! I stopped working, I beleive due to my usb hub. I found a library for quadrature encoders and I took some pictures of the prototype, we called it the ŒKONTROLLER hehehe. I'll upload them later on.

I would also like to learn how to connect various Wiring boards together, as you mentioned on a previous post. All of this is very exciting!

Thank you!

P.S. Do you speak spanish?

I have the v. 1.0. I will purchase two Wiring S. One for future projects and one for my girlfriend. I checked the pins on the v. 1.0. There are RX0, TX0, RX1 and TX1. Are all of these exclusive for serial communication?

Many thanks!

Hi Hernando!

Due to my little experience I think using just one board would be challenging enough. I will order my parts today! The board has 47 digital ports, does that mean, that I can connect up to 23 encoders?

I want to get a nice case for it, and if works well, I would like to use the Wiring logo on it, for other people to see it was made with Wiring. Do you think that would be ok?

Thank you very much for everything, of course I will keep you posted on my work!  :D

Hi Hernando,

I think the 09117 is good for this project, because the LEDs are not essential. I would like to connect 126 rotary encoders. Some buttons would also be cool, like 32. If all those things are too much, I think 16 encoders would be ok.

Thank you very much for your time!

I want to build a MIDI controller with as many rotary encoders as possible to interact with Logic Pro during my audiovisual improvisations. I own a Wiring v. 1.0, I found a rotary encoder at sparkfun, with product id  COM-09117. How many of these could I connect to my board simultaneously?

I am a total beginner with Wiring, so I would need the code to be as simple as possible. To have some kind of visual feedback from Logic would be awesome. I found, also at sparkfun, a "Rotary Encoder LED Ring Breakout Board" with id COM-10407. It seems to be suitable, but also very "pin consuming".

Many thanks to Wiring for beeing so cool!  ;)
