minimoog-ipad-controller-e1387461789368-640x618

Inevitable Crafts shared this design for a Minimoog-style iPad MIDI controller.

It’s in the proof-of-concept stage, and the plan is to base it on inexpensive, readily available components, including an Akai LPK8, a Behringer 202 sounccard and various plugs and connectors and birch wood from Home Depot.

complete IO for the ipad

__symmetric audio IN/OUT
__midi IN/OUT
__MS20 filter, patchable IN or OUT

as this is a proof of concept, i will take the cheapest parts available

__birch instead of mahagoni at homedepot for around
__akai lpk8 instead of anything decent, so no wheels, but the only alternative would be the line6 and thats too big
__behringer 202 soundcard, unsymmetric and generally crappy and RCA …. but small and cheap
__cheap usb hub
__midimate
__female MIDI plugs and around 12 mono plugs (thats expensive ^^)
__some cables
__korg monotron for the filter

the controls left and right the ipad are mounted on dedicated panels to make it easier to expand and change layout.
