I think this is not really the final version - but it's running fine :)

Changes:

  • Sequencer and Motorfader parts removed
  • Support for 64 pots, 64 buttons, 64 LEDs

  • Device ID and MIDIbox-to-COM option can be patched directly in the .hex file (see README.txt)
  • navigation buttons can be optionally disabled
  • these 4 buttons are automatically disabled if no LCD is connected
  • 5 new display modes
  • banks can be named
  • MIDI time code (MTC) will be displayed at page #5

Thanks to Serge for the good cooperation in the last days regarding the editor updates! :)

Yeah, thanks! Thorsten

Sorry Ian but I dont think even the new sid design will allow you to work with all your 20+ SID chips @ once ;D

Ups! I forgot to ask: this firmware is for old PIC? 20Mhz?

Hi Rogic,

yes, it runs with the "old" PIC16F - after I removed all the dedicated routines for motorfaders and the sequencer, I had enough free memory for some new extensions. And I think that I will add some more features in the future, for example some predefined meta events which simulate a "mute channel" and "solo channel", and a function which allows to define pot/fader groups.

But before the other firmwares will be updated.

Best Regards, Thorsten.

Shame about that plan for the 20 SID chips eh  ;)

In that spare room on the chip do you think it is possible to have the ability to name banks without using the Vmidibox?

That would be kind of cool.

Love the new stuff anyway

Ian

in readme file it says:

How to patch: open the main.hex file and search for

:1043F00  (this is one of the last lines)

Replace this line by *one* of the following lines:

If I want only ONE core module, that will be device 0?

So I should modify this line to:

Device Number 0, MIDIbox-to-COM enabled

:1043F00000000000000000000000000000001000AD

?

Hi,

Yes, it should be enough space. Also for a complete pot/button configuration w/o MIDI Learn.... it's in my ToDo list :)

If I want only ONE core module, that will be device 0?

So I should modify this line to:

Device Number 0, MIDIbox-to-COM enabled

:1043F00000000000000000000000000000001000AD

yes

Best Regards, Thorsten.
