10th December 2015 - version 3.1:

* Fixed menus not traversing correctly when turning the encoder.
* Pressing Z now cancels any menu.
* Prevented knob recorder playback from stopping immediately if the knob is being turned as it's released.
* Pressing Z in the Sample & Hold algorithm now triggers a manual sample.
* Added a tape length parameter to the Tape Delay algorithm.
* Added check for corrupt calibration data at startup.
* Added check for invalid calibration data before writing calibration to flash.

Installation went flawlessly. It might be an astute idea to add the link to firmware updates here:

the new firmware working great for me!
i used 3v out from a second disting's precision adder to calibrate it.
i did have to do the calibration about 4 or 5 times for it to calibrate correctly from some reason. the precision adder on the newly updated one output a voltage slightly above zero (just enough that it would change the pitch of an oscillator noticeably) when it was supposed to be zero, but i repeated the calibration process a couple more times and got it working good now.

***New features include
- a clockable ping pong delay effect.
- 10 envelope generator algorithms, including clockable envelopes, dual envelopes and combined envelopes/VCAs.
- quantised and unquantized random voltage generators.
- random trigger generators.

We’ll also be showing an experimental new firmware version that allows WAV file playback from the MicroSD card slot normally used for firmware updates.***

Yes yes yes!! Gimme now please!!

Got mine today! Gonna try upping to 3.2 tomorrow it shipped 3.1 apparently. I have one question/request- please add or help me hack the code to add a parameter to the pitch/envelope tracker to gain up the envelope. I can get good tracking from line level input signal but the envelope is so way low that it is unusable without preamping. I don't have a dedicated preamp and Clouds seems like an expensive gain stage. If this is not possible I'll get sdiy cracking for a small/decent line- modular system

Good suggestion - I'll put that on the list for addition.
