Arduino / AVR
new board i designed to make more professional looking midi tools to make music with :)
working on a new crazy midi mixer interface
will have 128 potentiometers total
so far I have 64 working with multiplexing on one analog input on my custom midi arduino board :)
Sooo much soldering!
It started off as a simple Speak Jet chip… Then I added it to my Antimov robot for the sparkfun competition…
100% auto routed
I was excited receive my Uno today in the mail, the packaging was nicely designed.
This excitement quickly faded when I picked up the Uno for the first time….
The following describes my disappointment with the new Arduino Uno…

I am pleased to announce that www.JerTechOnline.com now has its own forum!
Check it out!
Even has a photo gallery
I ripped a game apart to see what was inside :)
We actually had to retire this item because it is totally unsupported by the Arduino IDE.
I can get it to work fully with just a few lines add to boards.txt
Notice how the surface isn’t smooth with the plates in.
How did I do that?
First I used a layer of plastic model glue to secure the panels in place. Once the glue had dried I sanded as much as i could to make the panels flat with the case surface. first with course sand paper 40 grit then move my way up slowly to 250 grit.
Next I applied a layer of primer paint. let it dry then sanded it down with 250 again.I then applied some epoxy to the cracks with a razor blade to make sure that the surface was as smooth as possible. sanded smooth then applied another layer of primer. once the primer was dried for a day i took some very fine wet sand paper and wet sanded the case till it was super smooth.
now it looks like there were never panels to begin with :)
