With a lot of my projects I have done my prototyping with Paul Stoffregon’s Teensy series of boards before moving them onto their own codebases. On those occasions where the “prototype was all I needed” I would compile the code using the teensyduino and then manually load the .hex file onto the target. As I… Read more »

The testbox is an LCD/Dorkboard based arduino clone with two buttons and a pair of potentiometers. The switches, power and 4 io pins are made avaliable via screw terminals on the ouside of the testbox. #include /*————————————————————– pulse generator for test box Depending on the setting of left dial send send pulses out on digital… Read more »
Getting code onto the MidiMonster or Benito device. All of the code on the Benito and MidiMonster devices is open source and references an open source library called the Lightweight Usb For Avr (lufa). Getting the code compiled and onto the device requires a few other open source tools. AVR-GCC The most current and stable… Read more »

Disks Die, Laptops break, Bags are Stolen. It’s more or less a fact of life, In the 4 year process of transitioning from a noisy sun E-250 in the garage to something that could actually be in the same room with you I arrived at the above network arrangement. Most of the my data is… Read more »
I have been thinking alot about what what the arduino could be and also neede a board to test some Arduino shields in a midi context.
This month we have two workshops. One on interfacing Purdata with the outside world and one on programming midi devices. I designed one board that should work for both classes. I will blog a bit more about this technically later at dorkbotpdx.org/feurig but that was my thing for the day.
I was finally able to get my ruby/rails environment setup with my database of choice. It wasnt easy as postgres will not build with more than one architecture at a time, I had gone through similar hell the last time I tried to build anything on OSX that had to compile against libraries made for… Read more »
At the eagle for fabrication workshop on sunday I started with a design that Thomas Lockney threatened to build about 2 years ago called the Low Fi Arduino Guitar Pedal. (http://www.instructables.com/id/Lo_fi_Arduino_Guitar_Pedal/) It was simple enough to get through the necessary parts of eagle that I was teaching and while it wasn’t perfect It beat the… Read more »
As I am rebuilding our web server I am consolodating my nerdy stuff. This domain was origionally where I placed information on my installable package for the avr-gcc toolchain for OSX which came out of the stuff I was working on.
