Everything else / Re: Post your songs!
« Last post by rio on June 22, 2018, 11:39:26 PM »
hey ToyKeeper,

after I could hear the songs in peace at home :D - here are some thoughts about it:

easy does it draft 1:
  these are really nice lead sounds and melodies that you created there. The recording sounds a bit overdriven, but maybe it was your intention. Personally, I think it would sound better, if not so distorted - especially in the bass area, there is a lot lost by that. You can certainly rasp at one point or another, otherwise thats quite passable... I would cut it a bit more. The combination of the bass melody with the lead sounds is really cool ...

digitest 1: is the arpeggio sound by atmegatron? it sounds nice melodic ... although the part is quite strong. the other sounds in the background are not bad either;)

...do not misunderstand me - I really like both tunes;)

Well, as it turns out, dragging my feet was an understatement.  I still haven't gotten back to it, months later.

I've spent most of my music time lately looking for a better way to do midi sequencing, so I can capture ideas while exploring and then clean them up for a more organized render later.  And I just got a Digitakt to help with this, and to serve as a drum machine.  Hopefully it'll help me stop dragging my feet and actually get some songs done.

yeah ..for sure, that's important.

I really like the combination of Atmegatron and Microbrute, retro digital plus retro analog in a single dirty sound.

post a picture !

I really have to listen here under bad conditions at work, but what I have listen so far sounds fantastic (both songs)!
I have to listen to this at home ;)

Well, as it turns out, dragging my feet was an understatement.  I still haven't gotten back to it, months later.

So, um, here's that first draft I made, complete with badly improvised melodies I played with no particular plan in mind.  And sort of a club remix at the end:

So far though, all I've done is hook it up, debug a few things, and record a quick sound test.  Here's that sound test, a simple repeating pattern while I mess with the knobs on my Atmegabrute to make something like a sonic rainbow:

You're using an Atmega328P ?  It should work fine for that, but not for any other Atmega.  This is because I have hard-coded the Atmega328P into the AVRDUDE command in the software.
Also, you should have a cap (think 0.1uF) in series with the reset line in your schematic.  Do you have this?

Everything else / EasyUpLoader
« Last post by arpeggio on June 09, 2018, 03:08:31 PM »
   Hello, i got the tip for the EasyUpLoader from Jean-luc Delariere, i have some boards from him and i will maybe buy an Atmegatron or something, i spotted these great synths already, but you know how it goes, anyway,
i much like the tweakability of it, i do a lot with Arduino so i will look into it again.
My question is about the easyuploader, because i am making, coding and selling on Tindie my Ipeggio, it's on sound/MIDI tab, Newest and then you find Ipeggio.
And if i want to update firmware for the users i can send the firmware and with the Easyuploader the user can upload the firmware to the Arduino Mega and
Then he/she does not see the code, and only use the Hex-file.   Like you probably do and Jean-luc does.
So i tryed using the easyuploader, works great for an Uno, but for the Mega it says avrdude getsync() not in sync.     On Windows 7.
I had all the settings good i guess, cause it is connecting and trying to upload, the board resets and then gets two or three transmitted messages, i see the RX led lit up,
and then no good TX responce from the Mega, Avrdude says not in sync, i tryed lowering the bautrate, no result..
I also tryed XLoader and the same no result, Does anyone have a qlue to get me going with this one, any  help is welcome.
Thanks in advance, Dian From the Netherlands

Atmegatron / Chiptune patches for Boutiques
« Last post by joejonsme on May 21, 2018, 08:42:11 AM »
Hello,

Just wondering a) If anyone has created any chiptune (8-bit game sounds) patches with either of the 3 boutiques or b) could point me at the best boutique model for the job and the best base set of params. The sort of sounds I'm after, you'll find in this great little.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Excellent. That seemed logical, but when it comes to something like this, I like to make sure. :)

Is there any chance a PDF copy of any unpublished documentation for the Oscitron and Uni-Five could be posted to the Support page? Assuming there is any more, of course.

Thanks,

Hmm, well I was actually next to DIN Sync at Superbooth and he has a 101 DIY project that looks amazing! https://youtu.be/wB7yyMU_h24
Ginko have the new sampler slicer module if you're into modular: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl-eEHc66Y8
Not too sure about 8-bit options at the mo.  Most seem to be preassembled.
