Stages: LED enhancements for color-blind people


#1

Here is a firmware update for Stages that adds a color-blind mode.

How to update?

Power the module on with the last mode selection switch pressed.

The firmware audio data has to be sent to the CV input (right under the slider).

The slider controls the signal level; and the 6 LEDs serve as a vu-meter.

Try to adjust signal level to keep the first 3 LEDs lit.

How to enable/disable the color-blind mode?

Power the module on with the first mode selection LED pressed.

How is the color-blind mode different from the default display mode?

LED brightness and blinking patterns are more contrasted.

  • RAMP: moderate brightness, with a faint brightness modulation. Smooth blinking pattern when a loop point is enabled.
  • STEP: high brightness. Sharp blinking pattern when the loop is enabled.
  • HOLD: very low brightness. Sharp blinking pattern when the loop is enabled.
