Howdy,

I pretty much figure that everyone around these parts already has a rotary controller, but thought I'd share this anyway as folks might find it interesting since it's unusual.

Rather than trying to learn how to post pics on my phone, I'll just leave a link :)

Enjoy!
 
EDIT: I decided to not be so lazy and booted up the ol' PC

Haha! I was thinking about that yesterday!
Wondering if ol' Minter snuck rotary support into Tempest 4K. :)

Jag rotary + Jag to USB.
I bet it's possible.

Using a color-cycling LED to backlight a Tempest 2000 controller is genius.

Here's The Movie, where I demo the pad with Tempest, Impulse X and Rebooteroids

I think this is the first vid on Youtube showing rotary control on the latter 2

I don't have a rotary for the Jaguar yet, soon as I get paid at the end of the week, I plan on grabbing one if they're available. = )  Looks great.

Is it possible to eventually program the LED to not color cycle and stay on a static color or set it up to rotate out between the primaries with a button combo push or something? I'm all for RGB lighting as I have some in my PC, but having said that I don't have the system change colors on the fly and prefer to keep a static color and then change it from time to time.

Not sure if that would be possible given the power constraints.
The RGB LED has a peak draw of 30milliamps. The Jag controller ports are only rated for 50, so an additional microcontroller would likely push it near or over the limit.

Not to mention the additional faffing about. These things take long enough to make anyway. Lol

I originally had a simple red LED in my prototype pad, but thought that the phasing colour "melt-o-vision" was more in keeping with the likes of Tempest and Rebooteroids. :)

Might be possible to sneak one in, the AVR units are pretty low draw, might be able to use some PWM to reduce the drain from the LED too? As you say, more faff tho :D

 

Very shiny work good sir! :D

Many thanks :)

Yeah it would likely be a lot of work.
If anyone really just wanted a static colour, I can just swap the fancy LED for a normal one.
