MB808 Seq Help. Not saving patterns

12 posts in this topic

So now that I am done with mine, I have noticed that it wont keep the patterns when powered off. I have tried both a 256 and 512 eeprom and the pic does go through format routine but it still wont hold the patterns. Any easy things I may be overlooking before I pull it out of the case?

Did you press ALT+Pattern button before power-off to store the current pattern?

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Thanks TK. That's the ticket. So it is save to pattern by hitting ALT/PATTERN and the 1-8 and 9-16 keys? Is there a primer outlines the MB808/SEQ basic functions? The documentation at the MB808 site doesn't exist and the one here although helpful does assume some familiarity with the SEQ in general..

Probably you missed this page: http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_808.html

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Nope, didn't miss the page but did miss the relevant bit. Someone who does not quite have a handle on their MB808 functions gave me some not too accurate info about how it works.

Thanks again,

Raph

OK... I knew how to do this before... as I've got lots of cool programs I've inputed into my MB808 but I've not programmed it for way too long, and I've forgotten how to save.

 

:no:

 

I kinda hit a wall... trying to understand how to save my patterns.

 

any help would be appreciated. :rolleyes:

OK... saving a pattern.

 

I've got a pattern humming...

 

I figured out...

 

Press & Hold ALT & Press PTRN - PTRN LED will flash

Two LED's will be lit up on your GP buttons and is where the pattern is currenly saved.

First Press button 1-8 to select where you're saving (A/B/C/D/E/F/G/H) - one of the LED's (9-16) will flash

Press a single GP button from 9-16 to select  the other 1-8 selection

 

Still not certain which on the memory use... but I'm saving patterns :)

Is it possible to use Song mode when the MB808 is stock??

Mine says "NO BANKSTICK..." when pressing Song GP.

I have a IC 512 installed and can Load/save Patterns.

I´m a missing something or do I need to install more Eeproms?

You need multiple eeproms.

thanks!

Ok, so just daisy chaining another one?

And giving it a unique ID.

Anything else I need to do?

The from ucapps.de mb808 page:

  • Song: restore pattern chain A1..H8. Up to 64 chains can be stored in a separate "Song" BankStick), same selection method as in pattern page. If no "Song" BankStick is connected, all LEDs will flash to inform you about this state (no Chain store/restore possible).
    The CS configuration of this BankStick can be changed in the setup_*.asm file. By default it's CS=3
