(kria) ratcheting + alt note + glide

New feature for Kria on Ansible: RATCHETING!

Press the Trigger parameter button a second time to switch over to the ratcheting screen… you can set the ratchets (repeats) to be 1 (none), 2, 3 or 4. I tried with higher ratchets, but unless your master clock is running pretty slow, it seems a little too fast for Ansible to keep up with so I set the max to 4 (much like the ratchets on the Mother-32 that you hear in the video above).

Haven’t yet adapted the Teletype Ops to work with the ratcheting parameter, but will soon…


(alt note and glide)

Latest firmware (3/11/18) ansible.hex (246.0 KB)


Yay! Very excited to try this out! :star_struck:

Edit: @freqout, should this .hex still have the Arc issues? It seems to for me.

oops yea that makes sense. i have a separate branch on my github for the ratcheting feature and i didn’t merge it back into the master. i’ll update it when i am back home again.

This is great! Should adding trigs work in the ratcheting screen? The grid lights up as though you are, but the gate outputs don’t update until you add them in the “main” view.

hmm i don’t think so? it’s more like it’s own parameter like the original four. it has its own loop points, clock divider, probability, etc so it’s not really linked to any particular steps on the trigger screen.

Oh wow, I didn’t realize that it had it’s own loop points! This could lend itself to some really cool patterns. I guess i wasn’t considering the full breadth of the feature :smile:!

yea in the video above i have the probability for all the ratchet steps set to the lowest so you get a lot of crazy variation that way

Does this hex file have both arc apps and meadowphysics as well?

You know, I guess I should have watched the video before downloading :slight_smile: womp womp womp lol

yes… it has everything the official Ansible firmware has, but with additional features I have added to Kria. The other features are outlined here: https://github.com/monome/ansible/pull/30

p.s. @Justmat i updated the .hex file with the fixes for the Arc apps.


I so want to update but can’t afford to lose my presets - i have complete songs in presets that i do gigs with. Ratcheting is a killer feature that i always wanted also…

yea i thought ratcheting might be the feature that would push some people over the edge. i’ve got a few more features in the works though…

hopefully we’ll get preset import/export one of these days… unfortunately serialization and i/o aren’t really something i’d be comfortable touching in C

Great, thank you! :slight_smile:

Great stuff; will try out tonite but this most likely stops me pulling the trigger on the Doepfer, at least for a while.

Wow, this is cool :sunglasses:


So sick. Going to download this update after the gig I have this week! Can’t wait to try this.
