Would be dope once he's done and you can control everything from the controller

the casework is being powdercoated in the same aluminium grey as the software, im talking with the developers of the software currently and working with them to implement new features into the software, one big thing is the implementation of global cc# assignability to every single button and knob on the software. its important that everything on the software /controller has this functionality.

the control brain and other parts are now ready, i have all the switches, encoders faders and various caps here ready, they will have thier legends printed on them this week hopefully.

soon to follow will be the face plate graphics being supplied to me by the devs.

to be honest this is quite an achievement to be in touch with the devs and programmers/engineers of the bpm software and that they are so willing to help adapt the software to meet the functions of the control surface.

more pics to follow soon

Hopefully you can make a deAl with some company and get the controller out on the market
you'll make a killing out of it.
Good luck with everything.

update: heres the progress so far.

boards now populated, just the idc headers to connect to the main digital input boards to solder to the boards. everything fits fine when tested i will then fit into the finished casework. not long now until i can finish this project and start the next one which is an 8 channel motor fader control surface for any sequencer/daw software.

here are the boards and also test fitted into the spare casework.
