Approaching: norns

norns

Just wow ! Can’t wait for this.


#2433

Wow, this is going to be a big update


#2434

Brilliant, and right up my dark little musical alley.


#2436

@tehn is that demo arc script in any of the dev branches yet?


#2437

I don’t know if I missed it in the email, but was there a time frame for 2.0?


#2438

pretty close on the code. getting started on docs. there will be a couple week beta soon.


#2439

Very nice sample script. The Feb. batch of Arcs can’t come soon enough!


#2440

Public or private beta?


#2441

public. basically for those people who don’t have performances coming up :slight_smile:

but it’s been running well. most work left is in updating scripts and docs, and getting the update procedure worked out.


#2442

Got an early shipment of a norns and grid today. Pleasant surprise.

Early impressions: less and more than anticipated. Simple and deep exploration ahead.

Peace.


#2443

made a version of meadowphysics with the PolyPerc engine plus midi out(entirely in thanks to @markeats) for anyone interested. the midi is pretty untested, but I mostly just ported it from awake so it should hold up.


#2444

Are all dependencies included in the current November release? Does midi out happen concurrently with playing thru PolyPerc?


#2445

there’s an option in the parameter menu to have audio out, midi out, or both concurrently.

edit:
not sure about the firmware. I’d update to be safe. it’s a relatively simple process. also this requires the meadowphysics library placed in dust/lib/lua/ansible.


#2446

Thank you for porting this, it’s been on my dream list for a while.
Does it have the same voice options as the ansible version? Meaning of I connect a shuttle control to horns can I have multiple voices or is it monophonic?


#2447

yes if multiple notes are queued then they will all be sent. however, they only stay on for a single beat. toggle mode will keep resending/triggering the note on each beat.

planning on doing a midi version with MollyThePoly where notes just stay on when toggled. could also probably just make it a toggle feature fo the midi out.


#2448

Just wondering would the new raspberry pi CM3+ be compatible with norn’s? Seems like it’s got a nice bump in flash memory and performance.


#2450

i’m ordering one now for testing. it should work, but i want to make sure before making a recommendation. the 32gb of emmc is amazing.


#2451

Would we be able to do a field upgrade on norns to the new chip?


#2452

it should be the same process as changing RAM in a computer

The CM3 uses a “standard DDR2 SODIMM connector (the same type of connector as used for laptop memory)”


#2453

Thanks - it’s pretty exciting to contemplate the possibilities here.
