"ok guys....i've almost all parts....only a question before start because i haven't found any good help: which is the material behind touchscreen? the kind of "paper" who diffuse the light?
do you know?"

The plate can be found on eBay. Search for 3mm Opal Acrylic. Do some measurements and you can have them cut it down to the size you need (the size of the touch pad).

I'm rooting for you, and I'd assume that we all are. Lol.

Chris and crew, congrats on the success. I still remember the night where I found this forum. Much different community mentality since then. It's pretty amazing.

Yes, that is something I mentioned early in the forum....... but good to hear that it's finally working!

The hold switch bypasses the off command, by the way.

Hey all
Sorry for the late reply. I got no notification of the conversation continuing!

Here's my plan. I haven't received the controller yet, but I have a touch screen ready to go. I have a MIDI to USB cable, if someone can show me how to record MIDI that is outputted then when I get the kit I can find out what code is being sent.

Cheers,
Phi

Hello all,
First, to Super Matt, that link should work. If you email Gaz at the email advertised on his YouTube he should notify you when he has kits for sale.

bernardin0, what do you need?

And back to Chris, I may be pointing out the obvious, but each coordinate should send out 2 MIDI values at the same time (X and Y). Also, I'll have to double check, but the CC it's sent on is specific

Hey all,
I got one of Gareth's kits ordered. Hopefully this will allow some insight on the mystery of the KP2's unresponsiveness

Haha! Small world huh?

May I suggest having the codes being switched via a press of the rotary encoder?

This is so awesome, props to you man. Big step forward from the start.

This is really strange. And you tried it on another guy's KP2 as well, right? Perhaps bassman would send you the code if you begged? Lol.

Ah, so if I used the exact same DS touch pad it would work?

Sounds pretty sweet Chris

Sorry to hear about the Kaoss Pad roadblock. Hopefully you'll get that worked out. I'll keep my eye out for any clues that Gaz may have carelessly revealed smiley

As for the separate coding, that would be great if you could do that. I really like the way Gaz has his Whammy control set up.

"Stole" the code huh? Lol that just sounded funny to me.

All right, cheers and good luck!

Hey here's what you can do, you got a Guitar Center or any guitar shop nearby? Bring your controller and ask if you can go there and try their KP3, with your controller

Sounds awesome Chris!

So let me guess this straight, you move your finger lengthwise as the X axis right? Would you be able to code it so that the X axis is treadle position and the Y axis is inactive? Also, do you have the hold button working for the Whammy?

Maybe try the MIDI controller with other MIDI devices just to double check your Kaoss's state of being.

And does the hold switch work with your whammy? basically releasing the finger should turn the effet off, and having the hold switch should switch between leaving the effect on when the finger is released and the opposite.

Awesome man! Got the Hold button working?

Maybe you could try it out with other devices just to make sure?

Ah yes the DS breakboard, is that right? I'm not sure that will work considering I tried every wiring combination for the original touch screen, but eventually I will need a screen for the MIDI controller.

Sorry man. If I figure out something I'll get back to you

Yeah my ribbon connector is broken too, so that seems out of the question. I've tried to solder directly to it, didn't work either.

No arduino as well.

Again, Muse Messageboards would be a great place. The community response is quick and plentiful.
