I own two Branches modules but I'd buy more if there was a Twigs panel :tu:

Just discovered this. I know everyone chips in with their own personal recommendations and it's probably super annoying, but I'm going to do it anyway. I'd love to have the clock div/mult on one channel and the original firmware on the other. I don't have much need for two bernoulli gates in my small system, and I don't really use swing a great deal, but I'd love some VC clock div/mult!

Can some kind Wiggler upload the Twigs bootloader and firmware hex files please?

I can never seem to get anything compiled properly.

feedbackl00p, the archive linked to in the "installation" section of the Github page is pre-compiled. Check the "build" directory for the twigs.hex file

It would be very interesting to have Branches in one channel and Twigs in the other.

pisrecords - Your best bet is to download the Twigs release twigs-1.0.1.tar.gz from github, then use 7zip or your favorite compression program to grab the hex file out of the build directory.

I've pulled it out if it makes it easier to find: twigs.hex

Thanks - working for me as well :party:

Extreme Noob here too. Just if it helps:
-Had some initial issues getting AVRDUDE installed on MacOS High Sierra, followed this guide: http://macappstore.org/avrdude/
-Installed and used AVRFuses using the settings documented on https://github.com/arirusso/twigs
-Used a cheapie USBTINYISP from Ebay (originally used to update my Metropolis) - no separate powering of the module required, however the connection of the header was bit contra-intuitive. And had to select ATmega88P manually (autodetect gave me some slight variant that did not seem to work) but smooth sailing from there onwards.

@Ari Russo - appreciate your hard work! :tu:

Hi, twigs is great firmware!

I fix twigs too short trigger length problem.
https://github.com/ukyzky/twigs/blob/tr ... /README.md
https://github.com/ukyzky/twigs/blob/tr ... ded.tar.gz

In my test, Mutable Instruments Branches hardware with twigs original firmware trigger output and Make Noise Rene Classic module clock input have sometimes lack of clock trigger recognition.
And on my fixed custom firmware, the lack is disappear.

If someone get the similar problem, please try my fixed firmware.

(edit) at now, I replaced the release file for more increase trigger length (become 2.56ms).

And now I fixed bug of unstable trigger timing every about 8 seconds in Factor mode.

Thanks for making this update.
Had indeed noticed some issues with clock pulse recognition using the previous version of Twigs.
Installed this new version and now clock compatibility seems to work much better.
