Dark Time firmware download

Post by chem101 » Sun Mar 22, 2020 7:24 pm

Not sure if I'm missing something, bad at deciphering German to English translations, or if it really is that you have to email Doepfer for the latest firmware, but I can't find the actual hex file (darktime_V1.20b_fw_c_130724 ) anywhere on the internet. Their website says you have to email them to get the file. What is the purpose behind such a restriction? I should really just be able to download it, like pretty much any other firmware.

Does anyone else love/hate this sequencer? I feel like I'm right on the verge of letting it go, but I just built new controller case that is centered around it. I have had it for around 6 months and I just don't seem to be connecting with it. I don't like the fact that you can't set the gate lengths per step without switching to 8 steps. I also can't get the thing to rest on any step. When I flip a step switch to 'skip' it will just play the lowest pitch CV instead of playing nothing. Hoping the firmware update fixes it, but if not it's "time" to move on...
