I was wondering if there is any alternative firmware for the Teletype out there or if anyone here has ever attemted/succeded in creating one. To be a bit more clear: I’m not talking about additional OPs and MODs, but about a completely different (or massively altered) system running on the TT hardware.
A module like TT with it’s CV I/O, a nice display and keyboard support would be suited perfectly for tons of interesting, useful and crazy ideas. Right off the bat I could think of (and would possibly be interested in trying to implement) a port of @neauoire’s awesome Orca sequencer and other little esoteric sequencing languages.
I’ve already been looking through the firmware’s source code and the very helpful information in this thread. However, I’m still not sure about how tightly the more hardware related part of the code is coupled to the original purpose of the module and how hard it would be to implement functionalities that are (very) different from the original firmware.
So, I’d be happy to hear about your ideas or experiences!
P.S.: Of course I don’t see any reason for “removing” the original firmware from the module in favor of a different one. So that alternative firmware should best be running on a second TT module right next to the original
