Re: OPERA ROTAS, a DIY mutant drum machine BUILD THREAD

How is the progress with the firmware? Honestly stucked. Maybe Im open sourcing it in case any other guy(s) wants to keep developing it Maybe there are some pointers in here for midi over usb. It works for Arduino leonardo boards and is the way it was implemented on the NS1nanosynth might be worth ...

Hi aseaman, it appears that your electrolytic capacitors on the OPL2 board are orientated the wrong way around. You will need to desolder them and replace them with the grey negative stripe of both electrolytics facing the right side of the board. The pic above shows how they should be.

Thanks for the last update. Changing the sample rate is now much smoother. Much appreciate your work on this.

Re: DrumKid - aleatoric (random) drum machine

What's the current sample rate default ? I've cropped a short bass drum to 200ms..
Thanks again :)

Re: DrumKid - aleatoric (random) drum machine

Thanks that's helpful. Just took a look in Wavelab and the indicators are in 1 millisecond increments. So that should be helpful in creating a drum kit whilst staying within the limits.

What is the maximum total size of the 5 samples that can be uploaded ? Does each sample size need to fall within certain limits ?

Re: DrumKid - aleatoric (random) drum machine

I used a white uni paint marker extra fine. Trick is - if the slots are too narrow for the paint marker tip, be ready with cloth to wipe excess from the top side in one swipe. Normally these narrow tips just fit in the slot if they are unmarked alpha pots. This is just one coat, I will do another fo...

Re: Best first SMD build?

I started with 1U foxfield tiles. Then 1U NLC. Then 3U NLC like squid axon and Arseq. I'm happy that I did these before 16n faderbank and currently a ripples with 0603 parts. You develop a confidence for SMD by starting with easier builds I found.

Re: DrumKid - aleatoric (random) drum machine

Just thought I would give it a test for the sake of it, a separate controller isn't that important really. One thing i'm tempted to do though is use a little white paint marker on the pots, the pots are great quality but i'm missing my indicators :)

Re: Errors in beast Tek glitch VCO kit

The drill holes on the switches are too small but I was able to smash them in with enough pressure. Now I notice that because of the 2mm difference in mounting height, the panel bows when everything is tightened down. I can remove the pot covers but then I need to use polyimide kapton tape.

Re: DrumKid - aleatoric (random) drum machine

Just checked drop turning off sound to left and right and the A B D randomise function, both work so I'm pretty sure the upload worked. Switch is in midi position but still no response from drumkid with 16n as a controller. Haven't tried circuit yet, but in case it's relevant I'm using a 3.5mm to mi...

Re: DrumKid - aleatoric (random) drum machine

Ah ok. Maybe I did something wrong then. Tried a novation circuit and 16n faderbank and got no response from drumkid. I didn't upload the 'blink' code to drumkid as a test though so maybe I messed up. The switch was definitely in arduino mode I remember.

Re: DrumKid - aleatoric (random) drum machine

Just uploaded 1.1 firmware with no problems. My controller wasn't set up for comms on channel 10, so hopefully when I change that midi cc should work also.

Re: Small attenuator knobs? The case for and against

I have a DIY quad attenuator and a matrix mixer that both have befaco style micro knobs. I don't like them. They feel awkward to turn compared to others.
