  fine/individual tuning v/octave
Posted by: hadesbox - Yesterday, 06:57 PM - Forum: Feature requests - No Replies

So I'm having proble with tuning of the channels outputs of 5 and 6, for some reason they are a bit off (maybe my multimeters are wrong...) regarding the rest of the channels. Because of this and that some modules are not easy to tune, I would love to tune each individual CV output in very small increments to achieve proper tuning of Oscilators.

So maybe something like    ±0.01 and ±0.05?

Here is another idea for the "tuning mode" (maybe it exists but I cant find it).

So when you enter tuning mode, a single note is output on all CV outputs, lets say C1, C2, C3, etc.. so I can select the note.

Then if I have all the outputs plugged into my oscillators I can manually tune them with the fine/coarse controls of the oscillators, if for some reason a single oscillators is slightly off I can add ±0.01 until its tuned.

Then when exiting the "tune mode" all the edited offsets in the nerdseq are saved.

With this I'll only have to tune coarse and fine controls of the oscillators whenever I turnon my modular.

Another different idea would be to use the inputs of the nerdseq to "count" the frequency output of my oscillators for example a squarewave or sine, and that the nerdseq automatically tunes the cv output.

An option to use the NerdSeq 4 multi purpose inputs as a dual channel oscilloscope (like DATA or O'TOOL)... Tongue

Hi, I saw a picture of Patrick catani's nerdseq, with offset switches instead of potmeters. Is this a mod I can do myself?

  Full Midi-CV converter
Posted by: XORadmin - 08-01-2017, 08:41 PM - Forum: Feature requests - No Replies

Imported from old Forum:
Hi !

It would be great if the NerdSeq could be a full-featured midi-to-cv converter. Then it would truly become the heart of my modular system, and I wouldn't need anything else !

By full-featured I mean (from most to least important) :

1- the ability to use all CV outputs in combination with one gate in order to extensively animate a tone across several modules with many MIDI CC controls
2- the ability to split CV outputs between several MIDI channels (e.g. CH1 -> 1 gate, 4 cv ; CH2 -> 1 gate, 4cv ; ...)
3- polyphony on one channel (1 gate, 1 cv per note; or maybe 1 gate, 2cv per note)
4- polyphony split between several channels (perhaps one poly and one or more mono...)
5- any possible combination of 1, 2, 3 and 4
6- portamento time (or rate) controllable through MIDI CC
7- a selection of different portamento curves, in both constant time and constant rate
8- portamento time (or rate) controllable via CV
(I'm listing the portamento implentation as least important because slew generators are cheap)

That's some work, I know. Too bad I am so lame at low-level programming, because I sure would like to help make this happen Undecided

... some might also want :

9- tracker to midi output

but not me ;-)

  Trigger Probability Effect
Posted by: XORadmin - 08-01-2017, 08:39 PM - Forum: Feature requests - Replies (2)

Imported from old Forum:
Something that I thought would be a really nice feature is for each line in the pattern editor, the ability to add a 'probability' effect -

Value 00: Nothing happens
Value 40: 50% Probability of note/trigger/mod
Value 80: 100% Probability of note/trigger/mod
This would be a nice way to build in some variation to a beat or sequence, sort of like Elektron's probability for trigs.

Before reporting a specific bug, please make sure,

1 : You are on the latest version of firmware

2: No one else has reported it.

3 : You can reproduce the bug consistently by following the steps you outline in your report. (if possible)

4 : Another one of us can reproduce it from your instructions. (hopefully)

5 : Photos are great!  Worth a 1000 words and all that.

6 : Scope traces also great!  Not necessarily from the PCB, but definitely what's coming out of the outputs or what you're feeding the inputs.  I just finally received my Mordax DATA, and it's amazing for this, but any scope data is immeasurably useful.

  Firmware Update Information
Posted by: XORadmin - 08-01-2017, 08:26 PM - Forum: Firmware - No Replies

This is a repeat of what's already in the manual, but for those of us who are too lazy to find it, or couldn't find the google docs invite buried in their email (like me), the process is as follows.


1 ) Download new firmware.  .HEX file.  (as of this posting, the file is not compressed)

2 ) Copy the firmware .HEX file to the MicroSD card in the folder called "firmware".  so, SDCARDNAME:\firmware\nerdseq.hex  (you may need to overwrite an existing version here if it is already present on your card.)

3 ) If wanted, Power off your module either by unplugging it or turning off your case power supply

4 ) Insert the MicroSD card into the card slot on the NerdSeq with the writing on the card facing toward the display. 

5 ) Hold the following three keys in a three finger salute.  SHIFT - COPY - CURSOR UP

6 ) Turn on power to the module while continuing to hold the three keys above ( Or when turned on: Go to the Setup screen, Enable Debug and use the Soft-Reset function below, then Press buttons from #5)

7 ) The bootloader menu will now appear and you may now release all held keys.  When prompted, press SHIFT again to confirm upload of new firmware (check if it detects the new wanted firmware to be flashed before).

8 ) Do not interrupt the process by either turning off the module or removing the MicroSD card.  A progress bar will be displayed showing how far along the flashing process is.

9 ) When complete (100%), the unit will prompt you to press the SHIFT key again to reboot into the newly installed firmware version.


If the update was interruped for some reason. No Panic. Just try again and it will be fine.
Also in some cases it will show an error in the Firmware upgrade screen. Be sure that the SD card is inserted well, maybe eject and insert again and retry

  Nerdsynth still in development?
Posted by: XORadmin - 08-01-2017, 08:15 PM - Forum: Nerdsynth - Replies (1)

Hi guys - just wondering if the Nerdsynth is still being developed for production?

The last indication on the page itself says it should be available sometime during 2016...
