Another Christmas break means time for a small point release of the 16n firmware.
Details and .hex files are over at Github:
This is a minor upgrade to version 2.0.1, and everything new added in 2.x.x (as described in that thread) is still relevant.
This small release adds two new features:
- soft MIDI Thru option. Once you’ve upgraded your firmware, you’ll be able to toggle this on from the online editor. When enabled, any MIDI data (including clock data) sent to the 16n will be echoed out of the TRS MIDI jack; useful for sending data or clock to other instruments, using your 16n a little like a MIDI interface. Thanks to @AtoV and the Berlin Modular 16n port for their work on this feature!
factory initialisation sysex message. Sending an
0x1ato the 16n will force it to reset its EEPROM to factory settings. This will erase any config you have on the device. This is mainly to fix an issue of people re-using old Teensys for 16ns that may already have EEPROM data that would confuse the editor. Now, if the editor can detect a 16n remotely, but can’t read its config, it will offer you the option to force a factory reset remotely. This may be of use if it looks like your new 16n - made using a left-over Teensy 3.2 - isn’t working.
I’ve made .hex files for both regular Teensy 3.2s and Teensy LCs, for 1.3x hardware, and they’re linked in the release. For most people, using the .hex file with Teensy Loader, as detailed in the 16n wiki, is the recommended upgrade path.
