All updates available for download here. This is pre-release beta 3 but it is quite stable and I think just about ready for release.
First I will post the complete update packages including installer files, for updating from OS 2 or if you've never updated your Slim firmware before now.
OS2 to 3.1 Update for Tribute Edition - [Mac OSX]
OS2 to 3.1 Update for Stage / Stage II Editions - [Mac OSX]
OS 3.1 Installer for Slim Phatty - [Mac OSX]
Second, if you're already running OS 3.x and you already have the PhattyLoader software, you can just download the new hex file:TributeSystem_v3_1_653.hexStageSystem_v3_1_653.hexSlimSystem_v3_1_653.hex
Put the unit in Bootloader mode by powering on with MASTER button pressed/held, and confirm Firmware Update. Then open PhattyLoader software, select "File->Open..." and select the new v3_1_653 file. Click Update Firmware to send the new file to your Phatty.
New features in OS 3.1 include the following:
Glide only on legato notes option ('Legato Glide')
LFO reset on key trigger; can reset LFO phase to zero on every note or only on non-legato notes
Volume velocity sensitivity*
-- The above three options are per-preset programmable parameters added to the Advanced Preset menu.
New MIDI features:
Can now choose to filter MIDI output as follows:
- Transmit All MIDI CCs from the LP (default behavior)
- send All CCs minus Volume (CC7)
- no CCs from the knobs, only MIDI notes and pitch/mod wheel messages
- no CCs, no wheels, only MIDI notes
(All controls continue to affect the sound of the Phatty as before, only MIDI output is filtered)
Significantly improved Polyphonic note-allocation algorithm. Now does round robin note allocation with no note stealing, for lush overlapping voices.
Significantly improved incoming MIDI CC and note handling.
Arpeggiator if internal clock can now send MIDI Start, MIDI Clock, and MIDI Stop messages when running.
I am sure I am leaving out some details but those are the highlights. Please try this and let me know how you like it...
(* volume velocity not yet implemented on Tribute Edition. It appears that a resistor will need to be installed in the Tribute Edition before it can support volume velocity response, so it was a lower priority for this release.)
