Both are running with the same firmware, so that you won't miss any software feature!</P>

<P CLASS=INFO>Wilba's frontpanel greatly reduces the complexity of the hardware, and is therefore the prefered choice. The traditional variant is still interesting if you want to create a fully customized version of the sequencer, with a different layout and dedicated buttons/LEDs.</P>

<P CLASS=INFO>Wilba's frontpanel greatly reduces the complexity of the hardware, and the midiphy frontpanel provides many new buttons. Therefore they are the prefered choice. The traditional variant is still interesting if you want to create a fully customized version of the sequencer, with a different layout and dedicated buttons/LEDs.</P>

<P CLASS=INFO>Premade PCBs for both variants can be purchased at <A HREF="http://www.midibox-shop.com" TARGET="_blank">SmashTV's MIDIbox Shop</A>. He also provides kits and some other parts (like rotary encoders), but please note that the <A HREF="http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=wilba_mb_seq_pcb_bulk_order" TARGET="_blank">lead time</A> for a frontpanel kit is still very long (several weeks/months!) so that it makes sense to buy the frontpanel PCB only, and to source the remaining parts from an electronic shop like <A HREF="http://www.reichelt.de" TARGET="_blank">Reichelt</A> or <A HREF="http://www.mouser.com" TARGET="_blank">Mouser</A>! Alternative electronic shops can be found in the <A HREF="http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=where_to_order_components">Wiki</A></P>

Since the STM32F4DISCOVERY board and the SD Card adapter are not available at Reichelt, but (for example) at Mouser, it actually make sense to provide an alternative list for Mouser. If somebody created such a list, please let me know and I will add a link here.</TD>

<P CLASS=DESC>Thanks to the integrated USB peripheral of the MIOS32 cores, USB MIDI is natively supported by the firmware. This simplifies the upload of new firmwares, and speeds up MIDI transfers to your DAW and/or virtual synthesizers up to 100 times and more - see also <A HREF="http://midibox.org/forums/topic/12644-mbseq-v4-midi-out-performance/" TARGET="_blank">this forum article</A>.</P>
