Thanks - that is really appreciated, because I love your modules (dc-1, both lightplanes).

Such great news, thank you! :banana:

In an e-mail correspondence you had mentioned a possible expander for the DC-1, any news on that and what functionality if might bring?

I'm really hungry for this expander too and for this firmware.
The DC1 is a kickass sequencer and I think lots of wigglers should have a better look on it.

Guys, it is now March, and you said you would have something by February. I don't mean to be a pest, but it seems like you guys keep missing your dates. I would have probably already sold this module if I wasn't waiting for the promised updates. ANY news you can share on a more accurate date and the features included therein would be extremely welcome.

I was looking to get this module - I'm afraid this thread is less than encouraging...

Yeah for real. Why create a sub forum if you never intend to visit it... The fact that not a single person has replied from soundmachines is really starting to grate on the nerves. What's so hard about replying and saying "hey this is what's up, you can expect this, around this time, etc.."?

Hi to everyone.
I thank some people here that gave me a call on this thread's content because I actually lost the grip on the subforum due to some internal procedure (i.e. sending the emails of Muffs to another guy/address).

ANYWAY:
the project is well alive (we actually sold few hundreds of DC1s, have another batch in production from next month, and have many happy customers around the world) and the firmware is being modified during the last weeks.

Don't want to hide the VERY SLOW pace of those modification, that went ahead of the intended schedule in a big way, due to the fact that we have the firmware developer hooked on other "non musical" tasks for a very big customer in the last months....

To sum it up, the firmware writing is happening, in this moment I cannot give a date that is not too generic but I am writing down in STONE that this will be done and the firmware will be available before the summer break, that in Italy will happen in August.
This thread will host the early beta versions of the firmware, that will also include an extended 'triplet swing' mode that will blow things out of the water.

I do apologize for the miscommunication and I hope that you will maintain the high interest you have in the DC1!

Davide.

Also, I would just like to throw an idea out there... It would be cool if at some point you guys made an expander module with 64 lighted push buttons that we could use for inputing steps with our fingers. I am fine with what is offered so far, I love it, but an expander like that would also add something to it, I think... or no one would buy it (other than me) and it would be a waste of development.. who knows, just wanted to throw that out there :)

Quick update.
We are on track!
We finished last week the re-generation of the internal 96ppqn clock form an external step clock. This means that you will be able to use the SWING, ROLL features also with an external clock. Obviously, if you input an already swung clock you're a dork.
Second, we are on track to generate the euclidean mode (two different methods, one (only two tracks) completely CV controllable and the second (4 tracks) with manual choice of the three parameters (m, n and rotations).

We will publish soon the beta for the ext clock and then, just before the break (first week of AUG) the euclidean !!!!!

Awesome, thanks for the update. So glad I didn't end up selling mine.

Will the update process be fairly easy?
