Deluge firmware V1.2.0-alpha shared
We've just shared our new Deluge firmware V1.2.0-alpha, which we're very exciting about, to our closed Facebook group for testers. If you own a Deluge, you're welcome to join.
This firmware version is an "alpha", which means it's got a fair way to go before it's ready for release. With the help of our testers though, we look forward to finding and fixing all bugs and getting it ready for everyone's Deluges.
New features are:
-- SD streaming. All samples are now streamed from the SD card, instead of being completely loaded into RAM first. You don't have to do anything differently - you'll now just never run out of RAM or have to wait for whole samples to load. Polyphony and other features are unaffected.
-- Resampling. That is, recording the output of the Deluge right back onto the SD card. Options are provided for recording exactly for the duration of a loop, and for beginning recording exactly as a sound (e.g. an existing sample) begins.
-- Live audio input. Use the input as an "oscillator" source, and treat it like a synth in every other way. Live pitch shifting responds to the notes played on the instrument.
-- True monosynth and legato modes.
-- Random arpeggiator mode.
-- Input monitoring while sampling.
-- By popular demand, default resonance is changed to 0%, with more appropriate volume compensation for resonance.
