Got to MIDI Control Systems

Click on the button above to see more information and images of our MIDI work.

Small Systems has designed and developed several programmable MIDI controllers for musical and theatrical applications, including the ABTT Product of the Year '94 and systems used in West End and Broadway productions. We welcome involvement in MIDI projects using embedded controllers or PCs (or both!)
Examples of our work include :
  • a radio link to a receiver based MIDI controller allowing switches to be sewn into dancers' clothing
  • time code chasers allowing accurate control of theatre sound effects
  • sophisticated MIDI to relay control
  • velocity sensitive MIDI keyboard
  • ridiculously easy to use general purpose MIDI control stations (foot, hand & radio controlled)
Got to Embedded Systems

Click on the button above to see more information and images of our embedded work.

Embedded systems can also be provided using processors such as Intel 80186 , 8080 , 8085 , 8051 , Zilog Z80 , Hitachi 64180, Microchip PIC 16xx and 17xx and Atmel 8951 families. We are happy to quote for work using other processors - just ask!
Examples of our work include :
  • general purpose MIDI control stations for musical and theatre applications
  • sophisticated MIDI to relay control
  • MIDI control of digitised backing tracks
  • outside broadcast truck air conditioning controller
  • secure door entry unit
  • ink dosing and mixing, networked controller boards, multiplexed digitising board, amplifiers, keypads and drivers
  • bottle packing process control
  • PA distribution matrix
Got to Windows

Click on the button above to see more information and images of our Windows® work.

With the future of business computing now firmly entrenched in graphical operating systems, Small Systems utilises its Windows® experience to offer a user-orientated solution to meet the customer's needs.
Examples of our work include :
  • theatre cue management
  • operations control consoles for data broadcast (second version)
  • time management, accounting and invoicing
  • printer buffer controllers
  • PAT unit data retrieval
 
Got to Graphics

Click on the button above to see more information and images of our graphics work.

Small Systems also supplies fully graphical non-Windows® applications for those projects where the use of Windows® would be inappropriate.
Examples include :
  • building security systems concierge console with touch screen interface
  • ink mixing recipe manager with stock control and job management
  • ink dosing and mixing system with stock control and job management
  • medical equipment subsystem test device
Got to web design

Click on the button above to see more information and images of our web design work.

Web site design is one of the fastest growing requirements in the industry. Unlike all the other services offered by Small Systems, web design is (or will be) required by every single person and company on the planet.
Examples of our work include :
  • A site that was split between giving personnel information, scheduling and a dynamically updated section for system status on a large number of DEC Alpha UNIX boxes.
  • Who do you think designed what you are reading right now?
Got to DOS

Click on the button above to see more information and images of our DOS work.

Text mode DOS programming can be provided for systems where speed, simplicity and reliable, repeatable timing are necessary, or where an embedded PC is required without the expense of video hardware.
Examples of our work include :
  • PC BIOS millennium compliance tester with enforcement TSR
  • printer buffer controller TSRs
  • smartcard physical access system
  • building security multiple redundancy system unit
  • operations control consoles for data broadcast (first version)
Got to UNIX

Click on the button above to see more information and images of our UNIX work.

Text based UNIX programming can be undertaken where a more robust system is required than DOS can provide.
Examples of our work include :
  • cron jobbed scripts that scanned a number of DEC Alpha boxes returning setld and other configuration information
  • C programs that collated the data generated by the scripts and created dynamic web pages for display on a corporate intranet.
Manufacturing A full hardware design, PCB production and assembly service is available so that we may assist you with all aspects of your embedded controller project. We are a small and flexible company but pride ourselves on our quality and rigorous test procedures.
Documentation Manuals and technical data sheets can be written and supplied in various formats. Documents can be provided in English or French and may include text and graphics. As much care goes into the preparation of documentation as to the system it describes.
