Default Midiwidget gating Eurorack

My midiwidget from Highly Liquid arrived... so I quickly set up a breadboard to experiment with it gating some eurorack modules!

Three gates out with LED indicators and a permanently on LED to show 5v power supply.

The 5v gate out voltages go through 1v resistors and then on to 3 modules; TipTop 808 Kick, Snare and Rim.

Video recorded on iPhone, audio through Mackie vlz mixer with no fx into Logic. Video and audio were then visually synced.

I have to say, I love this thing already– still working out how best to design my build, as I want to use some gates for eurorack, and some to switch circuitbent machines using reed relays. I might post some more as that progresses...

But in essence this device rocks, thank you highly liquid!

After the success of my breadboard test I've made up a stripboard with 8x Eurorack gates...

Film and photos here–

Thought it might be useful for anyone else planning their build...

I love my MidiWidget!

This is great, Neal. Thanks for taking the time to document everything.
