What MIDI clock are you using?
Do you recommend having one in the studio? As of today, I'm using Roland's SBX-1 to sync all the gear...

So... took my time and installed the latest rv0 "cumulative" firmware.
Tested SysEx dump in both directions: works perfectly!
Tested TAP mode - works! Question: is it intended, that when pressing the "tap" button, the sound does not (necessarily) play?

Many thanks so far to rv0 - it's good to have guys like you (and helectomagneticus) in this forum!
Will there be an updated Yocto manual, with the instructions on how to use tap mode and SysEx dump?

Thanks,
Flavio.

rv0 and I are discussing the software updates on GitHub at the moment. You can view an updated manual there.

Your impressions about Tap Write mode are similar to mine. It's a really cool feature, but sometimes the drum hit doesn't play and sometimes my tap goes in the wrong beat. Looking at rv0's code, it should be possible to fix both of those things in time.

It's really cool working on the project again - I'm quite glad rv0 took the reigns and starting this back up!

Thanks for your feedback, He - one thing is not mentioned in the updated manual: the TAP feature. ;-)

TAP is not merged yet with master, you can find the manual change proposal here:

Apart from the logic in the code, the mechanical properties of the TAP button are quite poor for this use, making late triggers happen more often, and as such getting on the wrong step.
Ideally a pin-compatible replacement should be found for both TAP and START, that has a nice vertical tactile action.

As for the code part of notes not triggering or taps going on the wrong beat, I saw the same behaviour on the TR-606, I still have to find myself an 808 to play with. I agree there is room for improvement.
There's some logic in the code to avoid double triggers, but since I added that some drumhits indeed don't play. Will have to have another look, though it won't be before the weekend.

Fine for me! Thanks.

Fully agree with the mechanical properties not really being of much help.

Thanks again! No hurry - we will patiently wait and enjoy new firmware releases whenever they are published! ;-)

I just tested the new "slave sync fix" changes on GitHub and they look great. Encoder behavior is good and it's so nice that it doesn't lose sync when switching modes. Really fantastic work, rv0!

The code is "released" on GitHub for interested parties. Version is bumped to 1.1 since this includes new features.

This weekend I will test the updated TapWrite stuff. I like your idea of keeping double-hits instead of missing ones, rv0. That seems more intuitive to me.

Damn, the TAP feature is so nice !

Now I would like to send the pattern notes to the MIDI output to record it in another sequencer... any thoughts about this ?
