I am a Welshman that has moved to France to live. I used to live near Pontardawe in the Swansea valley.

I can probably help you with this project. Feel free to take a quick look at my website and if you think that I am a good match for your project requirements feel free to drop me an email (Address on website) or send me a PM here, or just reply to this thread with any questions.

Cheers Pete.

So what are you trying to do exactly ..

There is a lot of good example code out there to do this. A simple Google search will turn up most of it.

If there is nothing there that you can use then you must have a very specific application in mind. If this is the case feel free to PM me.

Cheers Pete.

Remember there are two meanings to the word smart.
More intellegent
More presentable

3 if you  include  smart (noun) as in "a kind of pain"  although I doubt very much it is this one smiley

Yeah this seems to have died a death now .. I guess no one made the grade

Shame because I have siblings living in the USA and could have visited them for a few months

OK ... I'm game for getting involved however I dont see why SF has all the resources you need. I am sure that some members here including myself can point you at those resources in China, which is where i suspect your SF contacts are outsourcing to anyway.

Check out my pedigree and my past projects on my website and get back in touch if i float your boat.

Cheers Pete.

Do you want to be able to configure all the sliders and buttons to send a specific (extended) MIDI message or have some way to program that into the unit. and have it held there in EEPROM until re-programmed.

I look forward to hearing from you


I have sent you a Personal Message through this forum.

I'm a professional Firmware engineer with 20+ years or product development.
I work for a company that does contract hardware and software development from firmware to the cloud.

All I can tell you is you better research the heck out of this idea, a real product costs 100's of thousands of dollars to develop and more to make and more to market.

Learn what youre doing before you go off and hire someone who will just spend all your money and waste your time

Interestingly so are quite a lot of the people who contribute to this forum smiley-wink

Some of us even use this forum to find work.  I actually take the ideas of people and turn them into products without the need to spend the about of money you are suggesting. Most of the projects, by nature of the forum they are posted on, tend to be small ideas that need formalizing into something that can prove a concept.

Mandy should not be put off trying to get her idea to market or even just to proof of concept with half million dollar development quotes.

How do you think Arduino came into being in the first place ?

Cheers Pete.

Take a moment to think ads in the supermarket: If you don't like it, then no one forces you to buy it. But let others do their own judgement.

Hmm now let me think how that might read ....

Must have New Product  !!!
What does it do   :  Its a mystery
What is it for         :  Its a mystery
Why do i need it  :  Its a mystery

This is beginning to sound like the plot to an episode of Scoobie Doo

Fire up the Mystery Bus I'm rolling into town.

I know it's hard to trust, but isn't it as every community or startup seems at first? Think about evernote, facebook, linkedin and others how do they looked when they started !

Transparent mostly and not clouded in mystery.

TBH you do make it sound like some kind of secrete society with membership screening etc .. Should I roll one trouser leg up now and done a funny hat or wait for your approval.

Come come now everyone.

I suggest that we ALL join up and then when we are accepted we can stage a coup and take over the world with their mind controlling device.

Where is everyones sense of adventure.

Hello Liz,

I have sent you email to the email address below.

as well as offering the services you are looking for I have worked with clients in the textile industry before building interactive costumes and MIDI driven interactive interfaces, which based on the website, I presume is what you are looking for experience in.

Cheers Pete.

45  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Re: SoftwareSerial lib and atmega1284p sends data but does not recieve it on: October 10, 2013, 03:51:14 am
The 1284 has 2 hardware UARTs. I would try using the 2nd one, referenced in Arduino lingo as Serial1.begin(57600),, etc.

Thanks Dan but I am already using both the UART based serial interfaces as MODbus interfaces. TBH I only needed it for inter module communication to another temperature differential switch module I have designed for the same client. Since both are currently still in the design stages then I might just move over the IIC for the inter-board stuff since I have that working on the 1284 anyway for my LCD interface.
