Totally loving the Kermit MKIII! :sb:
Incredible rich in features and a lot of character to give to the oscillators!
In tempo envelope mode, used for vca of one of the oscillators, I'm sometimes getting pops at the end of an envelope cycle, like a very short envelope. Anyone encountered this?

Anyway, big thanks IME for the crazy kermit.

Just about to update Kermit.

The update txt says: Connect your Pickit to the USB port, and connect the Pickit cable to the 6-pin header on the back of the module. Make sure “Pin 1” on the module is aligned with the triangle symbol on the Pickit.

So, which one is pin 1 on the module?

Didn't European Kermits already come with the newest firmware?

Not a big deal. Reverse it if it isn't recognized by the software.

I have to admit I did not check the firmware before trying to update. Just found an irregularity with the internal modulation that I could explain and decided to try the update...pin 1 is on top.

I can't seem to sync the module with external clock correctly. I'm using one of the CV outs on my analog 4 mk2 as clock. The bpm is set to 132 on the A4 yet when I plug it into the tap tempo jack on the kermit its showing 525 bpm. :hmm:

I wonder if it would be possible to set the tempo with the rotary encoder in a future firmware update.

You could try sending 1ppq from your A4? I’m guessing that you are sending 4ppq? Or conversely you could set the global clock on Kermit to /4. Go to the preset menu and scroll down.

Yes it turned out I forgot to change the additional clock settings on the A4. :doh:

Its nearly synced correctly but for some reason the Kermit is only displaying 130.8 bpm when it should be 132 bpm. Must try some additional stuff.

Great module. Loving it so far. Although I've only used tempo synced lfos so far. Its nice being able to use presets with the new Kermit and Piston Honda.

Raw quick video with Kermit mk3 & BL mk3 as synthvoice.



1 ch: unison osc output to BL3
2 ch: env mode controls through mod.matrix amplitude of osc on 1 ch. + input to cutoff CV of BL3
3 ch: temp random mode controls through mod.matrix frequency of envelope on 2 ch. + input to resonance CV of BL3
