Deluge MIDI Host Mod Buildlog

hoergen - 2019-04-12 07:19:07 GMT

So, that's what I will mod into the Deluge. Specifically:
Important Features

MIDI Host with 4 USB ports - Enable the Deluge to act as a host to MIDI devices
Provide Power to MIDI devices - All connected USB MIDI devices will be provided with power from the internal battery/power bus
MIDI thru between USB and DIN - Deluge can already do that (which is awesome, btw), but I need to keep that feature alive

Potential additional Features

One more CV/Gate/Clock output - Can't have enough of those, can you?
Battery level indicator - Self explanatory
MIDI Status LED - Blinks on signal receive
USB C input jack - I charge most of my stuff with USB C, so that would be a nice modernisation
Increase battery life by up to 400% - Not sure on the exact number yet, will need to be tested.

Deluge Firmware V2.1.3 Released
Bugfixes and improvements

  • Improved The arpeggiator now respects the velocity of individual notes pressed within the chord
  • Improved Input-based sounds (IN / INL / INR / INLR) now begin sounding when the user begins playback mid-way through a “note”
  • Fixed rare crackling which could occur in sample-based instruments after many different notes played
  • Fixed bug which could lead to CPU overload (voices dropping out) just after live pitch-shifting begun
  • Fixed rare crash which could result from recording notes via MIDI or keyboard view, particularly in conjunction with pressing "undo" afterwards
  • Fixed bug which occurred when unmuting long samples in arranger
