I was a little scared as I heard what comes out of the box the first time Remaining knobs:
1 Algorithm selection 1..4
3 Parameter 1
4 Parameter 2
5 Parameter 3
6 Parameter 4
7 Parameter 5
8 Parameter 6
some algorithms will use all knobs (in the release version). I have added 8 knobs to be flexible, ok some are
not used but I'm shure we find something to do with the unused ones
It's better to have some left for future ideas (updates).
For example I have combined the first two algorithms in one (7 knobs are used). Since they are
pretty the same (mathematically). Sync:
mmmh... a bit difficult .... but should be not impossible
timbre and sequencer are not created seperately (how it is done normaly) all result from only one algorithm.
To tell the truth I hadn't thought about that a lot. But you are right that would be a good feature.
I finish the 4 algorithms first and then I have a look how to do sync.
MIDI (clock) sync?
I hadn't thought it is so diffucult to get the PIC18F4620, here is another possible distributorhttp://www.voti.nl/shop/summary.html
a list from the MIDI-Box projecthttp://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/where_to_order_components
Of course other PIC18Fxxx work for this project, too. But I don't want to rewrite the code
for all possible PIC types available
. I hope you understand that.
But if it is really difficult to get the PIC18F4620 we can talk about using another more
common available type.
Why I have choosen the 18F4620:
- lots of flash memory 64kByte (place for sample storage or something)
- lots of RAM memory 4kByte
- I had it already at home
I'm shure we could find a good distributor for the PIC...
