fixed: automatically destination row correction if inserting or removing a line while shifting
fixed: CV and MOD output generated values for the mapping sources
fixed: Midi Aftertouch and Velocity could affect other mapping sources
fixed: Mapping A TR and B TR for I2C destinations were inverted
updated: set LFO type for CV16 destination (now 0-7 as value)

updated: CV/Mod output performance fix on high load
fixed: broken Sample 2 playback from sequence for tracks 7 and 8
added: Mapping Source Calc->MODS which is a signed Modulo
fixed: mapping table tick destination was not available
updated: Midi Velocity and Aftertouch mapping sources range now from 0-FFF instead of 0-127
added: Mapping Screen which is the new control center to modulate or map (nearly) everything with everything.
In the most easy usecase one would use a CV input or a Midi CC as a source and map it to any oher function like the LFO speed or Envelope Attack.
Or use one of the CV output results, add an offset, divide by another value like another CV input and output it inverted on another output.
It contains a big amount of sources and destinations which can interact with each other. On top of that they are arithmetic and logical calculations possible to manipulate all the used values.
Also conditional functions are added which makes it even possible to create small scripts or apply some live-coding. I created as an example a bouncing ball function or a fully running turing machine with it. 16 variables can be used to be a placeholder for deeper calculations.
added: variable screen which contains 16 editeable variables which can be used mainly for the mappings but also for some other functions
added: scaling screen which is now the main center to quantize notes to different scales. They are 90 scale presets and you can create your own user scale including finetuning per note.
The scale selection can be different per track, global, for input (like Midi or CV Input) and editing (which shows only the notes within the scale)
added: support for the Multi-IO expander which adds functionality for 3 independend Midi streams (USB Host, USB Device, TRS-A/DIN Midi). I2C support with 2 I2C ports which can be flexible configured,
an encoder to dial in notes and values and 3 buttons for new edit modes
added: I2C/Multi Tracktype which mainly controls I2C destinations for 6 columns (notes, pitches), 3 FX, drummatrix (16x Triggers/Gates) and groove.
The new tracktype is not only limited to I2C but opens many more functions for the local CV/Gates and Midi sequencing (eg sequence Midi CC or Notes in different styles from the drummatrix)
The I2C/Multi tracktype is also available without the Multi-IO Expander.

update: midi recording adds now some quantization (pre/post correction)
fixed: wrong text in Sample Retrigger Command
change: Table Chord Editing. SHIFT UP/DOWN change the note now and SHIFT LEFT/RIGHT the chord type
removed: round robin recording into a midi track from midi. Records now always from left to right into the columns.
added: Random Ranges screen which contains a set of 16 different random ranges from 0 – 100%.(press OK on any random value to get to the screen)
updated: Enhanced the regular random FX functions (Random next FX). These can now be assigned with a range. Beside the random next FX, the random function can be completely enabled for FX columns, so it stays on and all FX values are being randomized within the selected ranges.
updated: Overrule FX values such as from random, automators and others are now scaled to the real function values. So for example if you have an envelope FX which can be 4 digits and the first 2 digits select the envelope number and attack, then only the last 2 digits are overruled within it’s min/max values.
added: Random Value for Notes and MOD. These can be randomized now also by one of the selected ranges. (toggle with Shift+OK till you reach R x or RNx. R x selects a random pitch and RNx selects a random note within the selected range.)
updated: Performance improvements if many functions are running at the same time
added: view of patternlength on sequencerscreen
added: Skip playing FX when editing. So the FX you are busy with is being skipped for playing until you leave the FX column again. (Can be enabled/disabled in the Setup screen). Works with FX from patterns and tables.
added: FX selector (FX Selekta) which opens a FX list with all effects for this tracktype. (press OK on the Fx command column on pattern screens or tables)
fixed: fix for clock divider/multipliers. If a track was stopped and started later it syncs well with the others.
added: force clock function so the set clock FX can be forced immediately (if first digit it set to 1) and not only after the pattern is ready. Works now also with applying a new clock in the first row directly.
added: ADD/SUB/MUL/DIV FX functions. This adds, subtracts, multiplies or divides with a value to the last played FX and plays the FX again. This can be with and without overflow. For example, if the last playing FX2 was MOD 005. The command with ADD 040 to FX2 adds then the 40 to the 005 and a new MOD plays with 045. Another add would play a 085 etc… Same for Mul, also last was MOD 005, now Multiply with 2 and the result is 10(A) which is being played…go on and you get an exponential curve. Multiplies and divisions have a 0.1 digit resolution. Funny to add for a sample offset to get cool timestreched samples (use the ADD in tables to have it run faster).
added: Midi column overrule channels for note columns 2,3,4. A midi track has 4 columns and each column can sequence it’s own midi channel now (yes up to 4 midi-synthesizers/drumsynths sequenced from one track). The polyphonic settings for the midi channels stay for columns that are not overruled by another channel.
updated: sega gamepad readout which should work now for most compatible gamepads with all buttons. I can’t guarantee for all clones, but all that I could get my hands on work fine now.
fixed: midi problem with channel aftertouch input
added: 11 point calibration and precision for CV/MOD outputs. If you got a good precise voltmeter (and I’m not talking about the 50 euro multimeters or in-rack) you can set more calibration points now for a slightly more precise calibration. There is no new calibration needed, it all converts automatically to stay as it was. The same added for the CV16 expander (firmware for that one following).
fixed: table issue if table source is the FX Tick and if it is on the same row
added: new ratcheting and random functions for the local triggers. Values in the trigger column bigger than E0 got a special function now for even and odd ratcheting, random triggers, random ‘ratches’, random gates based on the random ranges.

added: General Track Assign screen where tracks can be assigned to either Internal CV/Gate, Midi or to the available expanders.
added: FX command to start a pattern from the sequencer by position
fixed: Avoid Sample retriggering without a playing sample
added: SHIFT+DELETE on a Note column acts now as either ‘Delete Note’ or as ‘Insert Note Off’, no browsing down to lowest note needed anymore.
fixed: possible SEGA gamepad freeze situation after saving
fixed: Muting for sample patterns with odd groove settings
added: Start playing possible from all regular screens now
fixed: Compact pattern function with copy/paste clipboard
added: Copy paste between compatible pattern columns. Copy and paste can be from all notes to all notes, triggers to triggers, grooves to grooves from different pattern types. Content can now also be copied between the 2 sample parts.

added: Colors on sequencer screen. Change the colors of special parts for fast recognition
added: Longer filenames support for sample loader
added: Enabling/Disabling of Midi clock output
fixed: Fix for the case when loading another project while one was playing which could cause a 1 BPM tempo. Sequencer stops now when loading another project.
fixed: bug in tables where a table in track 6 could cause trigger 1 to trigger
updated: in MOD column instead of using OK to switch between note and MOD values. Need SHIFT+OK from now
added: prelisten function for MOD column now using the OK button. If both MOD – note and Note are filled in, then 2 notes can be prelistened.
fixed: Delete marked Trigger changed MOD values next to it
fixed: Midi recording if note on and off was on same step, then now a trigger of F0 is filled in instead of a note-off
added: Sample preview (In sample browser SHIFT + LEFT for output 7 and SHIFT + RIGHT for output 8, press again to stop pre-listening). Also very long samples (as in ‘minutes’) can be previewed, and that all also while playing (Is overruling the current sample track).
added: Preview of already loaded sample slots (SHIFT + LEFT for output 7 and SHIFT + RIGHT for output 8)
fixed: Basenote from patches works now
added: Patch to FX columns
added: Table to FX columns
updated: Patches always update all inserted values for local CV/Gate tracks
fix: BPM display matches the actual timing now.

added: DINSYNC Clock input (through clock and reset input)
added: Note plays when holding OK button and walking up/down -> Plays notes while browsing
added: For samples: Note plays + note browsing as well
added: Compact Sequencer function (SETUP SCREEN) Cleans up unused patterns and releases them again for new use
added: Superslow automator lfo speed mode
changed: Range for LFO better resolution (more fintuning for lower ranges)
added: Record from CV route to outputs directly, so you can hear what you record directly
fixed: Edit was still possible on some places even though edit was turned off
added: If Edit mode is OFF, allow live use of OK button in sequencer screen to temporary jump to the same step of another pattern (SHIFT+OK for the row)
fixed: Fixed external start of pattern/row (through Midi or DINSYNC with shift button starts whole row, without shift only the ‘selected’ pattern)
added: Load / Save sampleblock. Allows to load and save all sample slots into / from a file.
added: Load sampleblock directly from sequencer (LSMP fx command on sample tracks) for ‘nearly’ seemless replacement of all samples.
fixed : When deleting marked values in the pattern screen with shifting up and something was filled in in the MOD column, the NerdSEQ could possibly crash.
fixed : When after power on, playing the first sample + retriggering + probability could cause a crash.
fixed: In the Sample Load menu, deleting in the ‘Abort’ row could reset the NerdSEQ
added: ‘All Sounds Off’ Midi Message, releases all Notes.
updated: Automator value browsing in the FX section changes now the Automatorfunction with shift+up/down and the value with shift left-right. Current values (scaled) are automatically filled in when browsing through the functions
added: Autoload function in the setup menu. Set the last saved project to autoload on startup.
fixed: In the sequencer screen if the global transpose and the playing note is higher than the highest note (and lower than the lowest)
updated: autoload to be able to load projects with 8 character names
added: Automations. 8 Automation slots with the modulation matrix to output the automators to several internal and external functions.
added: Current Automators: LFO, CV inputs. LFO automator with the following settings: Speed, Offset, Invert, Clock, Range, Waveform (Sinus, Triangle, Sawtooth, White and pinknoise), Bitrate, Phase. All automator settings can be manipulated from the FX column of a track. Also, several LFO settings can be manipulated by another automator slot: Speed, Range and Reset. The CV input automator got no settings yet (for next version). Automator destinations: Track 1..6: CV, MOD, Trigger Length (overrules the next trigger in length), Trigger Delay (overrules the next trigger delayed gate function), FX1..FX4 Overrule (overrules the next FX values), CV/MOD Glide+Steps, All probabilities, Step Overrule (experimental). Sample tracks 7,8: Pitch, Volume, Bitcrush, Distortion, Sample position, FX Overrule, All probabilities, Step overrule (experimental)
changed: Trigger column overrules the auto-gating from notes. So if a note is filled in and a trigger (from trigger column) at the same step, then the trigger got high priority
added: Next Random FX overrule in FX column. The next FX value from destinations (0 = random fx column, 1..4 = FX 1..4) will be overruled by a random value.
added: Old projects from versions older than 1.16 can be loaded
added: time in sample pattern screen
added: Din-Sync24 output (for clock)
added: Edit steps (change in setup screen). Cursor jumps automatically the amount of steps further when inserting a new value with SHIFT + CURSOR-UP in the pattern screen. Be aware that this can be confusing when you are used to insert values with SHIFT + CURSOR-UP. Inserting new values without the steps jumping can be done with SHIFT + CURSOR-RIGHT. You can disable this function to get back as it used to be if the editsteps are 0.
added: OK button on the trigger column triggers the underlying trigger value
added: Current running table is visible in the pattern screen.
added: Table Stop command. Be aware, tables are not being stopped anymore by using a patch. Table stop is the value left of Table 00.
added: All tracks play (SHIFT + START) from inside a pattern (same like on the sequencer screen)
added: Simple Screensaver. (Enable in Setup Screen. 0 Seconds = Screensaver off)
fixed: BRK in sample tracks works now as suppose to be in combination with probability
added: PAGE UP/DOWN in patch screen
added: Clone patch with SHIFT + OK on a current patch
added: Setting (setup screen) to automatically add also a trigger in the trigger column when inserting a note.
added: Sample offset FX
added: Note Prelisten when pressing OK on note (works also with SHIFT + CURSOR-UP/DOWN + OK)
added: Note insertion (note scale) on MOD column. Fast switch by using OK on the mod column swaps between 000, 800, C-0, C-4, C-8.
added: Screen wrap-around (enable in setup screen). Cursor swaps back to the begin/end of the screen up/down/left/right.
added: Setup function: Reset all values/settings on song stop.
added: Highlight rows. The row highlighting from the pattern screen can be changed in the setup screen (eg, 4 = every 4th row is highlightened)
added: Special FX command with multiple functions: Stop track after pattern ready, Stop track directly, Stop Song, Set/Reset clock output, Pulse clock output, Set/reset RESET output, Pulse Reset output, Reset all track current values, Reset all current values, Goto random position, Resync track, Resync All.
added: Modwheel input for live manipulation through MIDI (for MOD)
fixed: Mute didn’t affect the FX column well
added: Nerd Menu: Reset current Track values, Reset All current values, Resync Track, Resync All
added: Pattern Names. You can give each pattern a name now. (Add name in Nerd Menu on the pattern screen)
fixed: Screen edit / key input inconsistencies
added: Trigger function ‘FD’ will toggle the trigger.
updated: Many small updates and fixes in the screens and background to get a smoother usability feeling and higher performance. Screen change is now much snappier. Removed many mini-glitches.
fixed: Basenote didn’t reset when a pattern/track was stopped manually
updated: When creating new patches the init value for tempo was 128 bpm. Now there is no init value anymore for the tempo.
updated: Patches from old projects will be updated automatically.
added: Mute – Unmute functions ( SHIFT+DOWN+START mutes/unmutes the current track)
added: Solo/Unsolo functions ( SHIFT+UP+START solos/unsolos current track)
added: When editing in pattern screen: SHIFT+UP+DELETE Removes the current row and shifts all one up from below the row.
added: SHIFT+DOWN+DELETE Inserts an empty row and shifts all one down from that point
fixed: Disabled Merge and compact functions which are not usable yet but could have caused problems
added: the Nerdmenu which can be reached by pressing the Nerd button (SHIFT+AUTOMATE) with several functions:
added: Undo – undo for the last (and only the last) action in the sequencer or the (same) pattern screen
added: In pattern screen without marked values: Randomize current value
added: In pattern screen with marked values: Transpose +1, Transpose -1, Transpose +12, Transpose -12, Flip Rows, Randomize row order, Randomize values
fixed: for the random generator
fixed: avoid START, STOP and value change when in mark mode
fixed: Avoid endless loop when Mark+Insert copy on the first row
added: Current Values screen. Shows current values of the current track including manipulation of the values (OK on the Triggerexecutes the trigger setting)
added: Support for folders/maps in the file browsers (take care that you choose not too long folder names, space is not endless(even if they tell you so)), also still there is no alfabetical sorting (which is in fact impossible cause of the lack of memory or it would be extremely ressource eating). So you either copy your files in your order on the sd card or you use some of the directory sorters which are available for all platforms)
updated: Filebrowser shows now 10 instead of 8 files per side.
fixed: Midi problem where a gate could stay set when the Midi master send 2 times the same Note-Off erratically
added: Midi Enable/Disable. Turns midi reception on/off except for sync, so if you want to clock but the NerdSEQ shouldn’t react on midi notes etc.
updated: Some beauty fixes
fixed: Connected IO-Expander could interfere with normal button pressing when no Sega gamepad is connected in special circumstances
added: Kill command for patches
changed: Delete with moving up and marked delete with moving up. Uses the UP button now instead of the DOWN button. ( SHIFT+UP+DELETE)
updated: When navigating through the FX types in the pattern screen, the Pitch, FX and tempo settings are getting default values instead of 00. Here tempo gets the current tempo setting automatically
fixed: that when a JUMP (via break) is active, that another (not quantized) pattern that is selected to play next will now play as expected
added: Break got a new function. Now if a value in the break function is filled in, then it repeats the pattern X times (value)
So for break they are these possibilities:
BRK 000 -> Breaks the pattern after the current position
BRK 105 -> Player jumps to pattern row 5
BRK 002 -> Player repeates the pattern 2 times (plays it 3 times) (to break position)
As the sample tracks got 2 tracks inside and if the repeat and Jump commands are used on the same row, then the Jump got a higher priority
Also here, if a new pattern is selected to be played next, the repeat function is being canceled and the BRK works like a BRK 000
added: SHIFT+Pagedown on pattern screen in mark-mode marks all
fixed: pitch note which works now also on the same step
added: setup setting to load settings backup (when debug is enabled)
fixed: ‘do always change’ parameters which work well now for patches and tables. So the same value is being send every time
changed: system settings are now stored on the eeprom
fixed: Probability changes now with the current step
added: clone pattern function by pressing SHIFT+OK. If there is a pattern number already, then a new pattern is created and the old pattern cloned in it
added: table probability
added: FX probability
added: Tempo setting, so the main tempo can be changed from FX
added: Break FX function got now a jump to step parameter. If a number is filled in and first digit is 1 ( eg 102) then it will jump to position 02 of the same pattern
updated: Tempo up to 500 bpm
updated: enhanced groove setting up to 32
changed: Init probability value is now 100 when editing and not 0
fixed: of not setting the trigger (and other stuff) well from another pattern in the FX column
changed: Order in project screen
changed: Player doesn’t stop now anymore when changing record settings
added: the display of decimal values
added: reset pulse (10ms) when stopping the sequencer
changed: avoid to start record from other screens than sequencer or pattern screen
fixed: weird deletion when deleting a marked value (fx did weird)
fixed: the problem where one couldn’t choose pattern 00 anymore on the sequencer screen
changed: no pattern creation anymore with OK when mark mode is on
changed: no patch creation anymore with OK when mark mode is on
changed: slightly changed colour to get better contour
fixed: issue when deleting multiple MOD values with the Scroll up function
fixed: edit behaviour for a FX column. When changing the parameter the first value is always 0.
fixed: text on FX types
fixed: glitch in patch screen when value changing from an emty patchrule
fixed: CV when the same note would’t be added in combination with gate
fixed: volume editing in sample pattern screen
fixed: the problem that when a whole sequencer row was ‘triggered’ (with shift) while playing that the sample tracks did not ‘trigger’ as well
updated: border colour changes now when recording
fixed: an issue where loading a project with a big sample in it could cause problems. Project and Sample loading is improved.
added: Page Up/Down functionality in the file browser
fixed: One could create an illegal patch inside a sample pattern which leads to a crash when entering the patch screen.
fixed: sequencer start for one pattern
fixed with CV recording
Initial release for betatesting
