Whoa, nice. And yeah, OLEDs are SO MUCH cheaper than an LED ring - crazy but true :/
Maybe a stupid question, but is it possible to mount a knob in the center of an OLED? Having a knob and a display separate from each other would double the overall size, but if you could mount them vertically, you could make your own "rings" and so much more!

I don’t know of any, but would be pretty cool. There are several options for round TFT or OLED displays for all the wearables and smart watches out there. I don’t know if the manufacturing process for those today are able to make a hole in the middle. At high enough volume and price, probably anything is possible!

I have a friend at NYU where they have folks working on wearables - will check with him to see who is deep diving on that subject at the student or teacher level.

That would be fabulous. Would really simplify and extend the functionality of a simple rotary knob.

Yea, you can include the name of the control and the value, which means you can also switch which parameter the control accesses. So you could create a send section with one knob and one button, and access any number of sends.

This looks great. The meters are a plus for me, I like to see which channels have active audio and identify them visually, especially when I am opening and closing various songs, which is different to working on a single song for an afternoon.

Any progress on this? I guess you've been busy with other stuff?

Hiya! Yes, been slower to update lately. I had a pretty bad motorcycle accident (drunk driver hit me) a few months ago, was wheelchair-bound for six weeks with a fractured pelvis, and so it basically stopped most things in my life for a while.

The good news is that I’m about 100% well again, up and walking around. I’ll be reviving this project shortly, and hopefully will have an update soon!

This project is damn awesome! I've been researching this myself the last week, and how I could build something similar, just playing with the idea. Then I realized I'd read this thread before and my god the progress you've made!

I might still do a similar but non modular thing myself just to learn and for fun, but to be honest just....SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! :D

When this hits whichever crowd funding platform you select it'll blow up BIG time!

Thank you! It’s a loooootttt of work, and a lot of revisions and things necessary to just get it in a prototype state.

I’m really happy you’re excited about it though! I am considering some changes to make it more friendly (and affordable) to more people, while maintaining the flexibility and depth. It’s really a tricky thing.

I should be having more updates now that I’m back on my feet again!

yeah that's something I didn't realize about a project like this before I read this thread for sure! :)

if you need any kind of help don't hesitate to shout. I know my ways around general system design and coding, and I'm also dipping my toes (as mentioned) into electronics and hw design.

and i do realize it's probably easier to do most stuff yourself at this stage but if you need extra help with testing or similar, I'd gladly help :) (just supply a shopping list or something similar 😛)
