Any notes on how you got it to work? I just installed patchbox, but it doesn't seem to see the tedium's audio chip... when I run PD I get a bunch of jack errors. I am trying to get it running because it has the latest PD 0.49, and seems to have touchOSC set up too. I'm also thinking of trying to use...

Re: Raspberry pi & screen, best way to do this in eurora

I was looking at something that mxmxmx has produced - terminal tedium that looks like the perfect breakout for me (unsure if it actually still produced) but was wondering about adding a RPi Screen and having a custom front plate made to house the screen which could then be used to run command line ...

I added a long-press shut-down feature to the terminal tedium patch-loader that shuts it down nicely. TT-github What really concerns me with embedded computers in musical instruments is that you have to correctly shut them down before removing the power. Until there is a solution to this, I would ra...

Still fighting to get a 3 B+ working. Here is where I think the problem lies - "Due to the RPI3B+ new power chip, (which includes the under voltage detector) old software no longer will find under voltage info in the same I/O registers, as its now reads that info through I2C. This also means that th...

I read that the pi checks if it has enough power during boot-up via I2C - maybe it uses the same address? I have powered the Pi 3b+ directly off a huge separate 5V supply (via the 5V jumper pin), and that didn't work either. I think the conflict is something besides power. Too bad - the 3A+ looks pe...

I am trying to get a pi 3b+ working with the TT. Just like someone in the facebook group pointed out, It won't boot while connected to the TT. If you stagger the boot sequence - i.e. power the module, THEN power up the pi, it works. What in the world could be causing this problem? Not booting = red ...

Question about input jitter. There are two parameters (deadband and smooth) that should help with noise on the ADC inputs, but maxing them out doesn't seem to help enough. I have resorted to dividing the input (0-4000) by 4, and making the result an integer, then doing whatever else I need to do wit...

Python question. In order to operate an I2C OLED along with the TT, I pipe the output of PD into a python script. Here is a simplified version of the call sudo /home/pi/pd -nogui -rt ./main.pd |& python /home/pi/tt-OLED.py I wrote a new python script to allow the user to scroll through and select pa...

So, many years after building it, and giving up on getting a few things working I figured I'd post something I noticed about carrier bleed through (which many have noticed). Since I put pots on every channel, I can turn off buggy channels. That helps me pinpoint issues. I populated all the boards th...

I think the tedium IS the poor man's E-301. Point taken about the market saturation though. Lots of drool-worthy stuff out there. But adding to most of them requires some serious programming chops. PD is easier.

When you stop pd with sudo killall -9 pd you get bleed through. Not sure why, but whatever! I'm getting some audio bleeding thru from the audio inputs to the audio outputs. I noticed this while the RasPi was rebooting - I had some music playing into the inputs (at a loud-ish level) and I could faint...

I updated the organelle tt-desktop main file (attached as a .txt) with a couple of fixes. Now the LED button is AUX, the one above it footswitch (usually the same functionality in patches), and the L and R LED's have clipping indicators (they light up for both input and output clipping).

Have you mapped the volume from the mother patch to a TT knob? I've tried Nori Grains a couple times, but it seems to be crashing on me. Gonna try something more basic I think. Volume is knob 6. Nori needs a keyboard - press the LED button and hold it, while pressing a key on a keyboard - the recor...

I think that the organelle is all hardware encoders - didn't change the 7 bits to 12... When you plug in midi, then you have to face that, but that's what the TT's knobs are for! I posted the tt-desktop file above in an attachment. It has remnants here and there - a bunch of overkill on trying to st...

the external isn't particularly smart, it just sends a single bang once when pushed (on the 'rising' edge), so yes, momentary. there's probably ways to handle long-press from within puredata but i suppose it'll be easier to just add it to the external (which then might have to outputs for the butto...

I usually go with toggles + bangs for that. For instance, if you are sending a Midi Note, you will send On/Off messages. You can do something as simple as connecting your On/Off to a Bang that sends to your toggle. So the moment it's off, it will deactivate the Toggle. That's a good idea - but what...

An update with a couple of questions. Do the gate inputs and tactile switches output bangs in PD? If so, is there any way to get a "long-press" - i.e. record for as long as one of the panel buttons is pressed? There is no "button-up" or "bang-off" :razz: command, right? I bought a b-stock Synthrotek...

cool, what's engaging the AUX though? ... sorry, not really familiar with the organelle. It is just a button that is used like a footswitch to initiate recording, loop playback, etc. When I wire one of the TT push-buttons directly to the AUX, it takes 2 presses to engage / disable it.

Made a lot of progress with the TT. Got organelle patches working (at least the synthesis or sample-playback ones - audio processing make a lot of glitchy noise - need to figure out what gives?). Also, it takes two button pushes to engage the AUX in the patches... which has me completely at a loss! ...
