Hey th0mas, did you ever decide to make that web page that constructs different word lists for SAM into a firmware? You mentioned this as a project last year. Just wondering.

I had a rough version of it working when I realized, if people used it with longer words they could build a firmware that is too large, which will brick the unit after uploading the wave file. So I decided it's best left to people comfortable recompiling the code.

Yep, makes sense. Despite the disclaimers, it's important to make services which are safe for people to use. (Probably it was hard to predict the size of the WAV file?)

By the way, could you list the words that are present in SAM1 and SAM2? From your demo and earlier SAM code on the Atari, I'm guessing the list includes:

"HELLO"
"I AM SAM"
"ELECTRONIC"
"ROBOT"

...but what else?

cheers for this, I'm looking forward to having SAM again. It's been a while.

I'm pretty sure this list matches what is released:

wasn't aware of the alternate chord modes, thought 1.9 only included SAM. gonna give this a go, thanks for the time putting this together!

is the latest 0.4. still in beta?

chord mode with root note + quantize is brilliant! Love this.

This plus the six6 (or any of the x6 modes) and the quantizer on, and Braids becomes something else altogether...
Really useful firmware, thanks again for all the work

Attack, Decay do not work

Post by haertes » Wed May 08, 2019 2:51 am

First of all, I absolutely love renaissance. Keep on with the good work.
But I had some issues, I'm triggering the Braids with the digitakt using a cv.ocd. The problem I experience is that the Decay and Attack settings do not work.
What can I do against that ?
Thanks

Make sure you have the VCA option turned on?

The two sub harmonic modes are terrific sounding as well

Just to be clear, Émilie wrote those but did not release 1.9. So Renaissance is an easy way to get those algorithms but I didn't write them :)

Thanks for recontextualising them I’d never known there had ever been a 1.9 till your firmware. Rekindled my love for the module.

I'm new to euro and i just bought a braids used yesterday after seeing this firmware. it was waht really nailed my decision to get a braids over a plaits.

since i've never updated/reflashed this module before, just wanted to know if there's a risk of bricking it while doing the flashing? I understand you flash it using the FM input.

i'll do what i can to not make things go wrong but just curious if it's a relatively safe process or any slight messup could brick the module?

thanks!

No risk. If you fail, you just try again.

This firmware is great! Really enjoying the chord and 6 oscillator algorithms.

Hi everyone / th0mas - i was looking to compile this with a custom word list. What is the maximum file size for a compiled binary?

Many thanks in advance!
