Is it safe to assume that this firmware update will be loaded on the IC when the next batch of kits are ready for purchase? I hope so since I don't have the know how to perform such a task. Thank you.

Thank you for that, and I'm truly looking forward to receiving my email stating that the Nava's ready for purchase, I'm very ready for it.

Mid Tom is now working at the same vol as the Low Tom. =) Thx!
(I still think that the Hi-Tom is to high in volume towards those 2)

Top prio. on next firmware:
- Fix the pattern changes to match the original 909... so that a pattern plays its 16 parts and THEN changes to the next pressed pattern number.
Not like now, where it changes instantly and abrupt.

yeah, I can confirm that the mid tom is now working, and also that the high tom seems to be have a slightly too high level compared to low and mid tom. And I also would appreciate if a pattern would finish all 16 steps before the next pattern plays after a pattern change. Thanks for the effort and fixing the mid tom, we are getting closer to the perfect 909 clone :mrgreen:

After playing around a bit, I would vote for the pattern change to be switchable. Meaning that you can choose to either change when button is pressed or after pattern-length.
Because it is very fun to "play" the Nava switching back and forth quickly between patterns :)

Having a setting for the pattern change would be lovely, I agree with AeonFluX on this one!
Regarding the mid tom, volume is fixed indeed (yay!). I still have a slightly shorted decay on the mid-tom though, but it doesn't bother me that much (not sure if anyone else has this difference in decay)
