I made a Facebook account recently. Tried all ways possible to make an instagram one to see content some friends wanted to share with me without success. Gave up. Always something not going.
Tried right now again. Message is "Leider ist beim Erstellen deines Kontos ein Fehler aufgetreten. Bitte versuche es in Kürze erneut."
Means it did not work again.
I was never a fan, I guess Instagram knows it.

Very helpful, batchas. I love the drum mode, but there were some features in there that I still hadn't grasped. Also, a question - how many of these features are missing in the MK1?
The brain is always greener on the other side.

Firmware: no difference, as both MK1 and the MK2 version I show in this thread have the "official" firmware installed. The Teensy on the MK2 version is overclocked to 144MHz, but TBH there's no noticeable difference.
Hardware: the panel layout is different, PCBs too and the main board is machine assembled. Functionswise compared to the MK1, all oscis can be controlled via CV on MK2. So in drum mode it is possible to set the decay for each 2 drum oscillators via CV, like shown in the video.
The very few expanders I did for the MK1 (1FW) had these inputs too, but not the additional attenuators and not the 10V range present on MK2.

Finally pulled out the manual and am digging deeper into this module. Not quite as tricky as my Shapeshifter, but almost.

I’m using the manual from Neutron’s site and there is one thing I’m confused about. Is the black Shape button the equivalent of the Lock button on the Neutron / WMD version? Is it possible to run in “Pulsar mode”?

Yes. It is pulsar on the MK2.
