Quantimator firmware update!

Post by toppobrillo » Fri Feb 28, 2014 9:10 am

this has been discussed in another thread some, but I thought it could use it's own. 2 updates:

-faster, note acquisition to output latency is now reduced to around 1.5mS

-selectable Trigger-On-Quantize mode: when in SCALE mode *without* external triggering, Out 3 now outputs a ~1.5mS 5V pulse each time a new value is quantized. Still operates ASR like when using the trigger input. This functionality is selectable on power-up (new units will ship without this enabled to avoid confusion)

see video for example:
[video][/video]

upgrading/ swapping: most users without access to an AVR programmer or buddies with one will swap out an IC. (I'll make a video on how to pop out your old chip safely and pop the new one in, and how to access TOQ mode) I'll begin to provide these via USPS and through distributors very soon and update that here.

If you want to get on the mailing list for an updated chip, please email me: info AT toppobrillo.com

yes, but since I did not add facility for ICSP to the board you'll also need an arduino uno board or the like. I will make the .hex file available shortly!

Thanks.
