OK Guys,
we have a BETA release of the new firmware (2.2)
The file is on the DC1 page (www.sound-machines.it).

New functions:

ROLLS and SHUFFLE in external clock: we implemented a PLL'd 96ppqn internal clock source. Check it out!

EUCLIDEAN GENERATOR
Two different modes of generating euclidean rhythms on some of the DC1 tracks. The first is static and works on the first 4 tracks, the second is totally CV-able and works only on two tracks.



Quick Manual Update:

Euclidean Generator
You can find a new menu voice "EUCL" that, when clicked present you with three choices: OFF, EC1 and EC2

If you choose EC1 you open a second level menu with the parameters to be configured for the 4 euclidean tracks. The Euclidean algo is defined by three parameters: n (active steps), m (length) and r (rotation of pattern). In the DC1 implementation the rotation (r) is set with the 'len' button as the track length. The other two parameters are configurable from the aforementioned menu: the n and r are multiplicated for all the four tracks and called: n0,r0,n1,r1,n2,r2,n3,r3. As with the other parameters on the DC1 the value gets confirmed when the right encoder is clicked. In this mode the CV inputs are freely assignable to the other 4 track's functions.

If you choose EC2 there are no parameters to set inside the menu and the four CV inputs are automatically linked to the algorithm. The lenght is always set by the 'len' function of the DC1 and the CV-A and CV-C are the 'n' parameters (active steps) for track 1 and 2, where CV-B and CV-D respectively sets the rotations of the track 1 and 2.



(in this versione setting the EUCLIDEAN mode to OFF won't delete the last pattern on the play screen. We could keep this as a useful feature, so you can save the static pattern. Note:no informations on the euclidean generator are saved with the pattern.)


The BETA status is particularly on the euclidean, there are some inconsistencies that are worked out right now but you get a pretty good idea of what you can do!

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR PATTERN BEFORE UPGRADING, THE PROCESS DELETES EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

Nice! Thanks so much!
I haven't checked this thread in a while, so just noticed this. I'm looking forward to upgrading the firmware and trying it out. :party:

Has anyone else tried the new firmware yet?
I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but I can't seem to get the Euclidean mode working. When I click on it with the encoder to set it as one of the cv destinations, it doesn't seem to do anything.
I'm likely doing something wrong- I only tried it for a couple of minutes tonight. I'll try again tomorrow..... Anyway, just wondering if anyone else had any luck.
Thanks!

Hi there!
No you cannot select the Euclidean with the CV buttons. You have to choose it from the main Menu (left encoder push) as written on one of the above messages.
Check it out and report meif something is not clear!
Thanks!
