Fader Bank

I see someones created code for a 6 fader wing box, is there any documentation for this like a components list and wiring diagram etc just like Box 1?

  • No, there is no wiring diagram. I made an improved new version on GitHub. Some instruction you can find as a comment in the code.
    The only recommendations for fader is a 10k Ohm linear. There are many versions on the market, you need to choose the right one for yourself.

  • Eine neue Version 1.3.1 ist bereit auf GitHub. Um z.B. auf Nomad die Faderseite 2 anzusteuern verwendet man initFaders(1, 2, 10); man muss folgende #defines ändern
    #define FADER_BANK 1
    #define FADER_PAGE 2 // Faderseite auf EOS / Nomad
    #define NUMBER_OF_FADERS 10 // Anzahl der Faders pro Seite bei EOS / Nomad

    New version 1.3.1 on GitHub. Better initFaders(), which allows you to assign the faders to a fader page
    e.g. initFaders(1, 2, 10); controls the faders on fader page 2, this can be done with changing the #defines
    #define FADER_BANK 1
    #define FADER_PAGE 2 // fader page on EOS / Nomad
    #define NUMBER_OF_FADERS 10 // size of the faders per page on EOS / Nomad

  • How would I edit your code to allow the buttons alongside each fader to behave as a bump button, like they do on an ETC Element?

  • I assume you think of Element 1, which have only one button per fader. Have also a look to the Readme.

    Using submaster class, no initialization needed:
    Submaster submaster1(A1, 2, 1); // make submaster 1 using Analog pin A1 for leveler and pin 2 for the fire/bump button

    Using fader class:
    Fader fader1(A1, 2, 0, 1); // make fader number 1 using Analog pin A1 for leveler and pin 2 for the fire/bump button, no stop button

  • Ok, thanks very much. The code works great, as does the capacitor trick to reduce noise!

  • I am now having trouble with it when I change "/eos/fader/" to "/eos/submaster/"

    It no longer controls the submasters in Eos when I do that.

    Do you happen to have a copy of the code for submasters?

  • What did you mean you changed /eos/fader/ to /eos/submaster/ ?
    Submaster is an own class.
    Did you programmed a submaster in EOS. Submaster access direct to the submaster in the submaster list.
    What says the diagnostic Tab99?

  • Embarrassingly I had written /submaster/ instead of /sub/ 

    It is working now Slight smile

  • Did you tried the eOS-USB library?

  • Do you have to have these variables defined? I have a bank of 24 faders I want to wire up and just use them as faders 1 through 24. 

  • Hello,

    I have my fader bank bank working with Nomad, however when nomad first starts it won't see the faders until the arduino is rebooted, is there something I am missing (I am fairly new to arduino programming).  I can get the box 1 to communicate fine on startup with nomad.

  • Which board did you use? What is the code base?

  • It’s an Uno, as well a Mega 2560, (both generic version). Using your fadewing.ino the only thing I changed is making it a 2 fader version.

    I also added the fadewing parts into the box1 code which worked but only after rebooting the arduino. However without rebooting it, only the encoders would works.

    this is using nomad 2.9 on windows 10 pro. 

  • The problem is that after a reconnection the initFader() function must done (hidden in the eosInit() function), normaly this should done after the connection is established., you will see it in the Diagnostic Tab (99). Did you work with eOS library or the #lighthack samples on my Github site? Can you post the code here as a .zip or send me a message?
