It's been a while since I posted in the News. It is not because of a lack of news but because I was busy working on general MegaDrum functionality optimization and on implementing new features, both which have been suggested by MegaDrum users and which I have planed myself. And the list of the features is not short:
Lately I have been busy working on a development of Positionals Sensing (PS) for MegaDrum and I'm pleased to tell that I've added an experimental support for PS in the latest firmware version. There are a few requirements and limitations:
It may appear I haven't been very active lately with news. It is for a reason. I want to make sure that MegaDrum is future proof and this is why I ported MegaDrum firmware to pic24 and pic32 MCUs awhile back, see http://www.megadrum.info/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=447&start=0&hilit=pic32 for details. Last month I was getting to know ARM MCUs and as a result I've now ported MegaDrum firmware to an ARM core and specifically to STM32F103VBT6.
Up untill now the MegaDrum website has been hosted on my friend's server. It has now outgrown the server's capacity and I moved it to a new hosting provided by Bluehost. I hope it'll have a happy life here although yesterday it did experience a 40 minutes outage. Let's think it was just a troubled start and it'll be much better in the future:)
New firmware released with support for 40/48 inputs and a few improvements.
I've updated the schematic of the Digital board for future use with 40/48/56 inputs.
