    Retrocade Synth, not working

    Newest installer for mac still needs libftdi and to install that you need Homebrew and to install homebrew im pretty sure it gave error about xCode missing / not chosen. BUT anyways, i got it working on PC with expert mode. Didnt have guts to try it with another hardware but works nice on Ableton Live! Note hangups are kinda common or maybe I feed too much data in. This happens often if I browse the display, but also if I just send lot CC data from Live. Its nice sounding tho and nicely chaotic. Couple humble requests: ​- SID filter CC control!! - Do a idiot proof tutorial of how to add physical controls + modify it to sketch (say a button which controls CC2 on/off on channel 1 and a potentiometer to control CC75 on range 0-127) -Fix drum channel, it seems to cause note hangups - Do a idiot proof tutorial of how to add own samples to Drum channel If these are fixed, this could be a very cool alternative to way more expensive Sammich Sids. But for that it would be nice to have certain controls as physical. But im glad I got it working, thanks for all the help. and heres a silly experiment I did in an hour. https://soundcloud.com/dkstr/retrocade-synth-test

    Retrocade Synth, not working

    Hi, Mac version installer is pain, I would need to install xCode etc, or thats at least what Terminal prompts me. I finally got my hands to Windows (or well, OSX with Parallers) but still no luck, Retrocades screen is just bright blank (upper row is little bit darker). I select the correct bit file and at least Papilio Loader says OK in its report. ISC_Done = 1 ISC_Enabled = 0 House Cleaning = 1 DONE = 1 I unplug it, plug it again, no difference. Tried Lite bit file too. Is there some way to factory restart both boards or format them and reflash everything?

    Retrocade Synth, not working

    Yeah well I try to wait for little bit more for the mac release, as I've been this far.. I really would want this to work, it could easily be really cool alternative to SammichSID with knobs and stuff. Lets see how this goes, if there is nothing up before I start travelling again I might need to just return this.
  5. First off I say I ordered this in early february, tried to get it work in march-april. History: First I noticed that noteOff issue and tried to fix that by very complicated process of loaning friends windows machine etc back in March. I couldnt solve even that it and I think I did something wrong, now the when I plug in usb-cable screen is lit but nothing comes on. SO, I assume I fucked up something pretty bad with the firmware or even the .bit file? Is there any way to get this thing working on mac so I could update the baffling noteOff thing and after that maybe get this thing working with my MPC? OR, does somebody want to buy this off from me with very discounted price?

    Ah ok, well now its bricked til I get back to PC:) No, I dont have sadly XCode installed and that goes beyond my skills / time available for studying about compiling, artist, not an engineer to that stretch:)

    NoteOff Issues

    Hmm, Im pretty sure debug showed only the note number and midi channel, no velocity. I cant confirm this right now since I dont have a Windows machine available. BTW, heres what the Mac version says when trying to upload:

    Could this be a midi baudrate problem? MPC 1000 aint the newest thing on the block.

    NoteOff Issues

    Hi, I didnt get the Mac version working at all, but I did however try the debugging on my friends Windows. It does exactly what I said in serial Monitor, it gives note on when I push the pad in MPC, and note on AGAIN when I release the pad. So theres no note-off transmitted. Any idea what could cause this? Usually MPCs are known for being really reliable midi sequencers and havent had problem like this ever before. Could there be any hack around this?

    Yeah, keep my Soundcloud on look out, I'll post stuff definetly as soon as I get this working with MPC. I've been fooling around with chipmusic for years and know lots of people who are hesitating with Retrocade because lack of decent demos (and well c64 filter but..) https://soundcloud.com/dkstr

    Meh, cant get my hands to PC where installing this would be easy enough. Any news of the mac port? Im willing to betatest, just hit me up at videovalvontaa at gmail dot com. As I said, I'm playing a live show in this A/V Festival here in Helsinki in some weeks and I know for sure people would be really interested to see this in action, more revenue for you guys

    Great Sounds great! I have a show / multimedia thingy coming up soonish and it would be awesome to use Retrocade in my setup, but dont want to drag laptop with me to stage.

    Hmm, I'll test Parallels home, but at least installer crashed with Wine. Im sure the quite complicated security stuff at our school will mess up something, I can see Arduino folder in Documents, but its totally empty.
