midibox cassette player

midibox cassette player is the first working midi device that i’ve built -after thousands of failed attempts-. it is an old midibox 16 project cased in a cassette player from 80′s.

it has 8 buttons, 2 knobs and 4 switches -that multiplies the amount of the inputs with 16 by layering the buttons and mapping them to another channel-. the arcade buttons send midi note on-off events and and the knobs send some cc events.

midibox cassette player was used in “interactive music experiments” to control the drums section. it has been used to trigger various layers of drums and the knobs were used for delay and reverb return effects.
