I’m working on a firmware upgrade for 16n. It is, conservatively, about 50% done?
I am looking for people to test the alpha firmware. I am also looking to gather people’s responses to testing that alpha firmware. Right now, I am not looking for many people.
Criteria for being a good tester!
- you have a 16n
- that you use for MIDI, I2C or both. (Sorry, if you just use it for CV, that’s not affected by firmware).
- you do not mind any configuration you have on it being blown away
- you have access to Google Chrome, or no objection to using it.
Also: it would be good to get some people actually using I2C to help me with this. I do not use I2C with the 16n, and cannot offer any insight there.
Quick notes on the firmware.
It offers no new features on the faderbank.
It does not alter the hardware in any way. If you have a PCB marked 1.3(something), you’re fine
It does, however, significantly improve the experience of configuring the faderbank to your needs, adjusting that configuration, or having multiple configurations that you’d like to easily swap between.
I will gather a wee cabal to help me test this thing. I think it’s quite good. It is certainly signifiant enough to warrant a major version number - it is a breaking change going forward.
