A new MCU allows to save more Configs/Drum Maps.

I have added Atmega1284 to the list of MCUs which can be used in MegaDrum. Atmega1284 allows to save twice as many Cinfigs/Drum Maps in non-volatile memory compared to Atmega644.
Also, with the new USB MIDI firmware and latest MegaDrum firmware it is now possible to switch to higher MIDI speeds which reduces latency by 0.5-1.5ms.
For details see Changes in version 20110424 in Latest MegaDrum firmware version.

More new features in MegaDrum

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:

What I have been up to lately.

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 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.
