If not, then you may have a crystal with incorrect frequency.
If yes, then you may have a connectivity problem on the board from PIC to Atmega, i.e. MIDI data are not passed from PIC to Atmega.

Hello Dimitri, I had the outdated atmega firmware, use the application and update with the firmware atmega644_48_20181218.bin, my megadrum is 32 outputs, and it was updated correctly, I have midi activity, there should be no connection problem between the pic and the Atmega, I think. I still can not connect to the MDM, probe also with midi and ox detects activity, I configure the ports in midi with megadrum usb in input and output rn, open but does not record midi activity in the pc, in megadrum if ... what am I doing wrong ?

I think the pic18f2550 was damaged, I measure the voltages of the USB cable connected to the pc and on the data pins there is no voltage, when I connect it to the MD the pin 16 of the Pic gives me 2.84 voltage, that pin is connected to the pin of USB data, is my reasoning correct? , I do not have another pic18f2550 to try ....

Did someone measure the data pin volumes of the USB connector on the MD board?

Signal levels should be close to 0V and to +5V (~4.9V).

I measured 200 millivolts and 2.84 volts, will it be fine? I could update the firmware of the MD to the 20181218 version, the pic18f2550 should work fine, otherwise I could not update it.
but I still have midi activity in the MD but I do not achieve midi activity in the pc with the midi or ox.
and I get error in the ports of entry and exit of megadrum USB in MDM .. any suggestions?

I was testing things with the MD and found that putting MDG in the megadrum USB input port and in MIDI output port yoke 1 I get sysex ok, I just get an error with the megadrum USB output port .. someone had something wrong A) Yes? Greetings.

As far as I understand, MIDI from MegaDrum to PC is working but from PC to MegaDrum is not. The only cause I can think of is a communication problem from PIC to Atmega.

Thank you for the continued development of MegaDrum Dmitri! :D

Do you think you could ever develop a hot spot suppression algorithm for MegaDrum?

All the best and be well.

I'm not aware of a reliable way to deal with pads with "hot spot" issues. Positional sensing is not reliable enough to do that.

To update MD the first post says:

All firmware files in the archive after version 20110410 have the following naming scheme:
megadrumppp_nn_yyyymmdd.bin
where
ppp - MCU type. STM32a - for STM32F103RBT6, STM32b - for STM32F103RCT6, STM32d - for STM32F205RCT6, STM32e - for STM32F205LITE, 644 - for Atmega644, 1284 - for Atmega1284
nn - Maximum number of inputs for the firmware.
yyyymmdd - date(version) of the firmware.


I have an ARM based 32 input unit bought in 2011 but no clue what "PPP - MCU type" would be on mine. How would I figure this out?
Also, can the firmware still be upgraded using MDMFX?
