DrumDokta2 Firmware update 1.2

Whats new:

RESET BEHAVIOUR
Added the ability to change the reset behaviour. Some users have reported the clock lagging by a 16th when clocked from Circadian Rhythm or Trigger Riot. This was due to the way the reset was handled. The new mode fixes this.

To change the reset behaviour, hold shift at power on to toggle. The step led will briefly  show either steps 1-4 lit for the old reset behaviour or steps 5-8 for the new reset behaviour. 

CLEAR MEMORY (formerly present but undocumented)
Holding bank and powering on the DrumDokta2 will erase all the contents of the memory. Please use this with caution as there is no undo from this.

Updating the firmware can be done using audio into the clock in jack,  in most cases the file will need to be amplified (it is unlikely to work from a smartphone without boosting).

you can download the new firmware here  DD2_FM1.2.zip

here's a quick phone video showing how to do it on a mac

Here's a nice little pdf to download. What we have here for you is all the presets from the DR110 in DrumDokta2 format. Additionally listed in the pdf is the DrumDokta2 factory preset, and finally on the last page a pair of full blank 64 step pattern charts you can print out and use.

So go ahead, party like its 1983

The Dokta is in!













It's really close though and although we've not completely finalised pricing (that will be next week hopefully) there's been a lot of requests about the usual pre-order list. So we might as well start one. As usual it'll be non obligation no deposit of course. So if you want to get on the pre-order list just drop an email to info@dinsync.info with your name and address (so we can work out the shipping when the time comes)

Then within the next two weeks (or less, we are working flat out) you'll get an offer on email as soon as a DrumDokta2 is available, please bear in mind that we only have a limited amount for pre-order, so it will be first come first served.

Of course if you prefer, it shouldn't be much longer before they appear at your favourite vendors (if not you can always ask them to get it for you)

We should have a feature video up here on the site in a day or two so be sure to check back, meantime here's a picture of an assembled unit.

The pre-order list is now closed, but you should see the DrumDokta2 appearing in your local modular shop in the near future. If not you can always ask them to stock it for you.

cheers

Paul

Things are moving along nicely



Here's a look at the production prototype next to its grandfather, thats a panel mock up so it isn't as sharp as the final will be.

pre-orders will start soon, once we've worked out the final costs.
