Thank you for the update. Looking forward to your work. :guinness:

Yes, it would be great to have an update on the project, if there's anything new. This said, summer tends to move slowly for people so it's understandable if things are stale.

Lookin' good guys, eagerly awaiting! And that's from someone who will lose business on his MC-202 Hack software, but I don't care!

Will it include the original sequencer functions?

Usually we always include all original functions in our CPU upgrades and then add features on top.

However - given that the original sequencer is difficult to use and the main point of criticism of all people I have spoken so far, it will be replaced.

It will become a 2-channel 1oh1 style sequencer. This means:
- step based
- accent, glide, length per step
- you can create multiple patterns
- you can chain the patterns live to create songs
- sequencer can be clocked via midi, din sync or external trigger in via TAPE IN

This is an excellent way to repurpose the tape jacks, very nice idea thank you!
While pattern chaining is very adequate too, a true song mode would also be desirable if possible. If not on release, later after the basics have been ironed out.

You also mentioned noise source is in the works, great news. Is the noise generated digitally? If so it would be ideal if the noise profile is similar to the SH-101. It'd also be ideal if the noise level can be controlled within the machine and not only via MIDI.

If you're open to ideas I would also propose the following:

- Pattern transpose.
- Master or slave modes via MIDI/DINsync/trigger.
- Additional LFO waveforms (syncable or not) controllable within the machine.
- Filter only accent (additionally to amp accent and filter-amp accent of the original).
- Keep battery operation if possible.

However if none of these are to be carried I'd be equally happy. Good work!

There are a lot of feature ideas, some of the ones you suggested will be in the final product.
If you look at our 1oh1 mod, you will get an idea (additional LFOs and ADSR, Accents, no battery needed, various clock modes, etc...)

However I am deliberately not listing any features right now as I would like to wait till they are implemented and running.

There will also be a couple of awesome and surprising features, one of which I am working on right now..

This is totally understandable and I'm super excited and badly teased by this!

:sb:

It would be great if you get the tempo-pot to act as a (assignable) data-knob. :hyper:
You've probably allready thought about this. ;)

The noise + features of the 1oh1. :w00t:

Sad to hear, the sequncer is a bit painfull but also unique with its individual step-length. Would it not be posible to keep?
