Built up a prototype today. It’s working well! I totally spaced and left the I2C pullups off the PCB, so there will have to be at least one hardware revision.
For those of you who have expressed interest in pre-ordering, thank you so much! I think I will hold off on predicting when that will happen until there’s some progress made on establishing a set of MIDI units that can be implemented in the 301. The more I use the hacked together firmware that relies on the SC.xx objects, the more i realize how much nicer the user experience can be if there is some continuity between the types of messages being programmed on the end of the MIDI source, and the options being selected in the 301 itself.
Having to look at a spreadsheet to remember what goes where is a bit silly, and somewhat frustrating.
I’ve put together a little demo of a USB MIDI device that is being bus powered and using the USB Host MIDI input on the Transit module.
Next step for me is to put together as concrete of a set of units/a standard to propose to Brian and others for feedback.
