You've pretty much nailed it there. The additional instrument comes from the Blofeld.

This is all sequenced on the MachineDrum  which provides the drums and vocal samples too.

I connect everything via an iConnent Midi 4 which i've never had any issues with. All audio is then routed to a Cymatic Audio LR-16 for multitrack recording.

Hope that clears it up and Thanks :)

Thought i'd post my first live performance with my Atmegatron. Let me know what you think.

Cool, that's a nice relaxing tune with a good mix of soft and crunchy sounds.

I'm not entirely clear on your setup.  Some of the cables are hidden, and it seems there's a sequencer running somewhere.  How is your audio chain set up, and what's driving the Atmegatron, and which parts come from which devices?  It looks like pads from the Blofeld, drums obviously from the MachineDrum, and the analog bit at the end from the BassStation, with some crunchy leads from the Atmegatron, but that still leaves at least one instrument unaccounted for and I'm not sure how you've set up timbre control on the Atmegatron.

Thanks for getting back Paul. I'm really impressed with your in depth and honest responses.

I figured that would be the case for points 2 and 3 but still felt it was worth a mention. Looking forward to that btw.

So is point 1 something you would be looking to roll out? If so what sort of time scale are we talking?

Thanks for your helpful replies.

d) I have looked over the code quickly, but for me it also something difficult to understand the whole internal handling. I would be happy if you could invest a bit time for debugging. If you like, I can test changes/assumptions, as I said.

Best regards, rio
Thanks very much for doing this!  I'll add this as a setting for the next software update.

1) yes - I have been wondering about this for a while. A knock-on issue will be Easy Uploader.  I'd need to reserve more of the EEPROM for storing extra universal settings. That can be done though.  If I put MIDI program change in, it'd def be via a setting that can be enabled/disabled. I hate MIDI program change - the number of awesome synth sounds I've lost because of it!!

2) Ah that'd require an external flash chip.  Thinking of doing something like this via a flash card for the next Atmegatron.  Sadly not possible for the first one. Nearly all software versions use up the entire 32kB!

3) Def yes for the next atmegatron. Had a few requests for this!

a) Neither of those warnings will cause you issues. Although technically the first one is a bug - should be
Code: [Select]
#if EXP_ENVELOPES==1 . But the result is the same, so won't cause you issues.

b) Definitely *.ino.standard.hex  .  Are you building the project with Arduino IDE and then uploading with Easy Uploader?  Obviously for easy debugging, it's fine to upload with Arduino IDE.

c) I compile using Atmel Studio + Visual Micro.  The compiler settings may be different with Arduino IDE.  This would explain  differences in size. I'd be tempted to use Atmel Studio if you want to do major hacking to the code - it's a lot friendlier!

d) Ah yes I'd forgotten about this.  It's a knock-on effect when I fixed one problem, I created another!!  It's going to take a bit of tracking to find out exactly what happened.  It looks like it should work from browsing the code.  So I'll have to put some time aside to sort it out.  At the moment I can't even tell you where the bug is.  It's either in
Code: [Select]
void AtmEngine::midiNoteOnReceived(unsigned char note, unsigned char velocity)  or possibly in the Arpeggiator class itself.

I didn't see a topic for feature requests so thought i'd start one. I've only had mine a few days but this is what I've got so far. Its certainly not a deal breaker. I'm already a big fan.

1. When loading up in settings mode, to change midi channel, would it be possible to put midi channels on the right dial freeing up the left for turning settings on and off (green and red) such as accept program change (which is possible but not native to the build)

2. I don't know how memory intensive each software build is but couldn't you package it in 1 file and chose which version you want via the settings boot?

3. Atmegatron II - Power button or push both dials for 10 seconds or something that doesn't involve taking the power adaptor out to power off.

Just some thoughts.

compiled atmegatron with 1.8.4. give me:

Code: [Select]
AtmEngine.cpp:134:22: warning: extra tokens at end of #ifdef directive

AtmAudio.cpp:56:34: warning: cannot declare member function 'static void AtmAudio::initialize()' to have static linkage [-fpermissive]
static void AtmAudio::initialize()

a) was compiled, but are these warnings normal?

b) which binary file should be used for upload:
*.ino.standard.hex or or *.ino.with_bootloader.standard.hex?

c) i also noticed that my compiled binaries a little bit smaller then the precompiled ones on website. Are the libraries shrinked?

d) i noticed that arpeggiator presets can not be pre-listened via dialer knob anymore. If I send incoming midi notes it works fine, but not for testtone by a pressed value knob. But my old binary which was compiled with libraries version 2.1 can play the first note (in that case). For me, it was superb that I can listen to the basic sound of a arp preset (even without the use of Arpeggiator...). Is it possible to activate that feature again anyhow - it was quite useful (for prelisten the sound)? Or can you tell me which source would block the testtone routine for arps? Anyhow, thats the reason, that I switched back to Version 2.1 at time. So I would be glad if I can use the last sources with same features ...
We have discussed this in the past too:
