as if it were my goal to do so i’ve once again managed to mod a control board so that it produces random symbols, if anything at all.
i’ve kept trying this and that, like swapping quartz & associates, even tearing off their pads & soldering them from the other side, resoldering all joints several times, testing the AVR in another device (works just fine), testing with different LCD (no change too), so i’ve reached the end of my ‘wisdom’
sound works fine (ie filter control etc all work)
midi in works (out not tested)
leds not tested (not soldered yet)
buttons / pots / encoder+switch all work, ie i can switch in different menues and change parameters (also 2nd filter page etc), albeit not tested all menues due to being blind without display…
all synthesis parameters controllable via manuel’s editor, too.
i haven’t soldered the display yet, of course. so i have to take an awkward position to keep it connected, while trying to reproduce the behaviour.
very sorry for the crappy video quality, it keeps on refocusing all the time, as i’m apparently moving the display a little (and the camera’s shit)
1st either nothing appears, or a line of squares. then, on pressing a button sometimes a second line is added and if it likes to the squares change to random stuff. usually this content also changes with pot changes, but not this time (in the video). as you can see i triggered it this time with repeated clicking of the encoder’s switch.
weird? i did it again!
any idea what it could be this time?
