Deluge firmware V3.1.0 released
Today we are releasing Deluge firmware V3.1.0, containing a number of new features and improvements.
Important: songs saved with V3.1 will not be readable by older firmware versions. Please back up your songs and / or save them as new files.
New features include:
* Default resolution for new songs is now 384th-notes (at which the max zoom level is 128th-notes). This default is double what it was before, and may be set even higher (up to 6144th-notes!) without consuming any additional CPU power
* Horizontal note nudge - hold down a note’s pad, and hold down and turn the <> knob to move the note in increments of the song’s minimum resolution unit (384th-notes default for new songs)
* Note repeat - hold down a note’s pad, and hold down and turn the vertical scroll knob to dial in more or less repeats of the note, which will be spaced as equally as possible within the time interval represented by the pad you’re holding
* Default velocity may be set. Settings menu -> DEFAults -> VELOcity
* The Deluge can now host USB hubs, allowing multiple USB MIDI devices to be connected
* The Deluge now sends MIDI to hosted USB MIDI devices. Previously it would only receive
* Jitter (timing errors) when playing to an incoming MIDI or trigger clock has been drastically reduced, especially when CPU load is heavy
* You can now mute and unmute rows of a kit while stutter is engaged
* The colours which appear on the mute/launch pads can now be changed for active, muted, stopped, and soloing rows. Settings menu -> PADS -> COLOurs
The new features are documented in the newly updated V3.1 edition of the official Deluge guidebook.
Or to read about the new features only, an "addendum" is provided.
To install the update, place the .bin file onto your SD card, ensure there are no other .bin files on there, put the card back into your Deluge, and then hold down the shift button while powering on. A spinning animation will display, and the firmware will be permanently installed.
Please take this opportunity to back up the data from your SD card while it's in your computer. Any storage technology can fail, and we want your work to be safe regardless.
