Hello! I was reading on the drum machine feature of the atmegatron and notice some features that outweigh or cause the omission of more usable features in the drum machine OS. As an 8bit synth, would it not be better to use 8bit synth waves shapes with noise gen and ring mod? Instead of using samples,use all synthetic wave shapes and add percussive envelopes and sub osc for bass sounds. Case in point: SYNSONICS DRUMS! These drum machines used 8 bit synth waves,velocity sensitive pads,16 beat(count to 16 in 4/4 measure and beat repeats after count 16 allowing 1 or 2 variations in beats),6 note polyphonic playback(bass drum pulse,low tom,hi tom,snare,hi hat closed and hi hat open). The unit was not midi,did not have synthesizer functionality and you could not store your one custom beat after power down.. ATmegaDrum has far better features and can do all that a cheap 8bit toy drum machine could do and more. Please.. synth drum sounds instead of samples,midi cc messages so a midi controller can manipulate the sounds and record/play start/stop, and above all: 16 beats instead of 4 beats! Most cheap toy and keyboard beat machines did 8 beats(repeat pattern after 8 counts). Lastly auto quantize 16th note 100% 50% swing. And adjustable SWING to allow straight dance beats or go to reggeaton and swing jazz/dance beats..

Software technical support / Atmegatron 2.3 improvements?

Hi, I was playing with my synth and realized I do not need a limited 1 bar sequencing feature but instead would like more synth waves and other features like mono-legato unison mode for detuned layered sound waves. I know these features would be possible by omitting the far too limited 1 bar sequencer/arp feature. Also,drum or percussive wave shapes would be steller and very doable since it would be synth waves not samples. 8 bit Casio and Yamaha portable keyboards of the 80's had nice drum sounds along with their nice selection of fully synthesized melodic waveshapes. So I know that this can do it easy since it is still a computer based synth(Arduino platform uController system). And maybe, duophonic sound output to allow more than one note output at one time. Is any of this possible enhancements to the 2.3 OS if the limited sequencing feature is omitted?

I have purchased this very nice synthesizer with all the accessories and have installed all the necessary software to upload the synth files to the unit but to edit the synth itself, I would need an editor for the PC that allows a full big screen and mouse/keyboard to work with that would be far better than using the limited hardware interface. I was excited to install this into my Windows XP pro 32bit machine only to find that I can not do that! Does any one have a fix for this? I do not want to buy windows 7 or higher. I am using XP in a SSD drive with no paging file enabled and it works great with 2GB system ram,so upgrading is not an option. Is this software XP pro compatible or not? I get a run error of this file not being a valid w32 application error code 193.
