Following a discussion on AH I had this thing coded in 2 hours (+1 hour for finding the camera and repairing the drawer I found it in, and A LOT of time for figuring out iMovie)…
Hit rec, enter notes one by one (lowest C for rest and lowest D for tie, configurable). You can then make it loop and overdub new notes on top of it.
Shitty video here
Since this sequencer is needing a lot of memory and eeprom storage (128 steps, up to 6 notes per step), I had to build it into a distinct firmware that features only the sequencer, monitor, sync latch and clock source app.
I’m doing some more testing (it looks like I have hit a stuck note when transposing like crazy) and I’ll post the .hex file here. I will try to get a better video with another MIDIpal splitting notes for the lower octave into a different MIDI chanel, and sequencing 2 Shruthi-1s
the next run of MIDIpals are coming soon, right?
because this means I definitely need at least two of 'em.
I need to pull the trigger on a midipal…
That does look cool! Put me down for a MIDIPal when the next batch comes out.
@toneburst: if you don’t mind SMT and the need for a programmer, kits are available.
woo hoo. i’m in. SMT FTW SMT FTW SMT FTW
Well, I don’t mind SMT soldering too much, but don’t have a programmer. I’ll wait for the pre-made one, I think.
How does this compare to the step sequencer in the normal firmware?
The one that is in the manual is a simpler version with no overdub less steps etc?
Only a few weeks left!
The one in the standard firmware has 64 mono steps (so overdub is kind of pointless), velocity and 2 CC values per step.
This one has 128 steps, with up to 6 notes per step, but no velocity / CC recording.
very cool…is it possible to put money down yet?
This wouldn’t matter much. I have put money to have 250 of those made, so when they are delivered they are not going to run away instantly!
I hope not because I need one for my new controller!
