I’ve just sent links to Bees-in-the-Trees v3.6 to everyone who has hitherto expressed an interest in testing it. Here are the changes since v3.5:
- a further bug in the way the unused portion of the Turing Machine shift register was being recycled has now been fixed. This bug was only evident if you adjusted the length of the shift register via the TRNG setting on the fly. It now behaves as it ought.
- TRNG (shift register length) can now also be put under external CV control via the FM CV input, as well as PROB. Best to use the TRNG menu setting to set a minimum shift register length, and then use FMCV=TRNG to vary it upwards under voltage control.
- the combinations of bit crushing, jitter and sample rate reduction available via FMCV has been rationalised slightly.
Version 3.6 really is the last of the Version 3 series. No more features! Only bug fixes henceforth! If there are no bug reports by the end of the forthcoming weekend (29th March 2015), then I will release compiled versions of v3.6 to the big wide world.
As noted above, there will be a pause of at least a month before version 4 is ready, possibly longer, because I have some other fish to fry (and some new modules to make, so I can hack their firmware…).
