Back in mid-2017 during a particularly quiet period here on the forum, I started a thread to foster some small talk while the next firmware was being worked on. I didn’t want to nudge or bother Brian about what specifically he was working on as that would just distract him from the seriously important stuff.
Now here we are a few years later and that old thread has over 600 comments so I thought it might be time to start Part 2. You see, I’m back at that point where I’m checking in here all the time looking for hints regarding firmware v0.6.0.
Don’t read anything into that, I’m not really missing anything like I might have been back when v0.2.0 was fresh but this version 0.6.0 has seemingly been getting a lot of work. Such a long silence portends interesting stuff for the many hundreds of us who are die-hard fans of the mighty ER-301 and now with each passing day, the buildup of excitement starts to become excruciating. In a good way of course.
I can no longer remember which version of firmware shipped on the unit that I received on December 7, 2016, but I have saved a copy of the first one I installed which was ER-301-bleeding-edge-48kHz that was released the day I received my module.
I wonder how many things have been added since those days Brian sent out the first batch of ER-301’s. Who out on our planet was the first person to receive their Sound Computer? What will v0.6.0 bring by way of surprise and when might it arrive?
