Even good digital modules do need firmware upgrades from time to time, either for bugfixing or for implementing new functions. Here’s two recent updates:

  • Abstract Data’s ADE-32 Octocontroller will receive an update soon, CLICK HERE to see the newest manual showing the firmware update procedure.
    Justim from AD says: “The upgrade is free and optional – the only 2x bug fixes are both pretty obscure but I am hoping it’ll be popular (and worth the time/cost of development!). To upgrade – customers will need to purchase a standard 5V USB to FTDI cable. This is the same cable that is now used by some of the Arduino boards, Raspbery Pi, Beagle etc. It’ll be used for all future Abstract Data digital modules and it’s also the system being used by Soulsby Synths. They are available through places like Mouser, Digikey, Sparkfun, etc.”
  • Make Noise’s Tempi’s new firmware “tempi11” makes External SYNC and RUN/ STOP behaviors even better.
