Hello, This is an introduction for my new baby, a really funny toy, the HAARP (yes I like conspiracy theory ;) It's a pure MIDIbox Project, just a dedicated CS and some coding. It works with any STM32F4 Core. Why? Many synths have an integrated arpeggiator, the SH-101 is well known for that, but the available parameters are still limited. There is also some good plug-in I think especially of the Ableton live's one but it's software. So I designed an hardware one, "LIVE" oriented, starting from the @TK.'s arp example. No encoder(except for MENU section Data entry), all parameters are directly accessible and are potentiometers. The screen is a small color TFT with a resolution of 128x160(sorry for picture, colors are better in real). It's 8 independent voices. 8 banks of 8 Presets. Session are saved/loaded from the SD Card. The Arpeggio parameters are divided in 3 sections: First is the TIMING Section (Purple pots): On/Off button, HOLD Button, it holds or releases the Notes in the notestack. The MODE Pot, it's UP, DOWN, UP-DOWN and AS-PLAYED, fr the moment but I will implement more. The RATE, from slowest to fastest, from 4 Bar to 32nd with dotted and Triplet value. The RESYNC, it retriggers the arpeggio, values are the same as RATE parameter. The OFFSET, it will shift left or right the starting step(note). Is Note Stack and MODE dependent. The DELAY, it will delay the whole arpeggio within the step range(duration), is RATE dependent. The GATE, the length of the Note, max is STEP length, is RATE dependent. The SHUFFLE, it will delay all the odd steps, in the range of an half step, is RATE dependent. Second is the TRANSPOSITION Section (Yellow, Orange, Red): Simple Transposition On/Off (Yellow). Simple OCTave Transposition, +/- 10. Simple SEMItone Transposition, +/-12 Repeat On/Off. Repeat, LOOPS number, 1 to 8. Repeat, SHIFTing on each loop, +/-32 semitones. Force to Scale On/Off Force To Scale, SCALE, list is the same as the Force to Scale example from the repo. Force To Scale, ROOT from C to B semitone. Third is the VELOCITY Section. REGEN Pre/Post(Target process) button. REGEN, +/- 100% Target process On/Off. TIME, the time to reach the target value, in PRE initial value is the regenerated value. in POST initial value is the one stored in the Note Stack. TARGET is the targetted value, 0 to 127. RETRIG, if on the TIME is retriggered by the RESYNC parameter. The main page of the screen represents an octave range, the note color changes depending on the octave, there's a Velocity section on the bottom, it's like a piano-roll. In the code, the arpeggio processing is ready, it remains me to complete the MENU section, I was waiting for the CS PCB to write it, now I can... ;) This little guy is to much fun, so I can't keep it for me. Then i will propose it to you ASAP. and I hope it will help me to finance some other bigger projects I've got in my back-pocket ;) I will try to make it available in two format, I'm currently working on a PCB for USB host/device, sdCard MIDI etc.. which will fit for both version and will be reuse for other small toys like that. An Eurorack version for the patching addicts. I used a MCP3204(4 channels) instead of a MCP3208(8 channels) for the AINSER, it's an AINSER32. I use only 2 channels for the 16 pots(8Multiplexed lines * 2 channels), it remains 16 analog Inputs which are accessible to connect some CV In Modules, thanks to @Hawkeye for making me think about this. The SRIO Chain is available too, you can connect GATE In (DIN) easily. You will be able to connect the MIDIPHY CV/GATE Out Modules which will be available soon. @latigid on is working on it. MCAN will be available, for an internal MIDI bus within your Eurorack, I reuse the BUS1 and 2 from the Euro Power connector for that purpose. A Desktop version, for MIDI purpose only(except if i find a way to add some CV/Gate without designing a too much big box). Voilà! More information will be available soon. For the moment this is a small video I made, I seem a little febrile but it's because I continue to discover it every day. I really love this little toy, it is very effective and musical, even in LIVE and if the Force To Scale is activated, there's no wrong note ;) Best regards Bruno
