I don't know if this went on to the Numerology Requests as i don't come much on the Forum, but it would be great to implement Altered scales on Vector (also in Numerology) like Major Phrigyan, Lydian minor 7th... It'd be definetely amazing to have Just intonation scales for Ragas, being a CV module it would allow for microtonal configs! Well, just thinking out loud
Well, in Numerology, you can always use the Custom Scale module (N4 Pro) to get custom quantization behaviors. As for scale quantization on the module, the main scales will be fixed (for first release anyway). Keep in mind that since you will have actual note readouts, it will be much easier to get specific notes than it would with any sequencer that uses sliders or pots to specify notes.

As for micro-tuning on the module, I haven't made a final decision yet, but that item is on the 'nice to have' list -- and asking for it helps!

Cheers,
Jim

Yup -- I've noticed quite a few folks going that way...

At NAMM, I reported a general timeframe of "Summer 2017" and "around $700" for the price. Those are both estimates -- with hardware there is a whole new set of variables to deal with. The release timeframe depends primarily on how quickly I can finalize the hardware, finish the software, and complete a proper test cycle. The final price depends primarily on the final component costs -- something I am working to minimize, but until I get a final quote on "boards and parts" for the next round of hardware revisions, I will not know for sure.

A couple hardware changes to note:

- I'm dropping the "MIDI In" 3.5 mm jack for a USB A jack --- the latter is more flexible, and even a touch cheaper (no need to give you an adapter cable) -- but more work on the software side for the driver and device testing.

- I'm dropping one of the 4 "run/clock" jacks, there will now be 3: Run, Clock, Reset -- each of which will be switchable between input and output and by function. For instance you could have run & clock as inputs for sync, but reset as an output. That setup is a bit more flexible, and helps make room for the USB A jack. Also: there are 8 trigger outputs on the back, whose functions will be assignable as well...

While I'm at it, a quick software update:

- USB MIDI and "Mass Storage" mode are working for the USB B jack on the current prototype.

- The SD card is working well. In "normal" working mode, the SD card will be used for loading/saving preset banks. There will be a "disk" mode whereby connecting the unit via USB to a computer will mount the SD Card as a mass storage device on your computer for backing up preset banks, loading firmware updates, etc.

- I've got custom fonts working for the OLED displays, so a much improved UI layout is coming soon.

Cheers,
Jim
