Greetings Moshang! Its been a while since Ive been on here but to get you up to speed with what I’m currently working on I have built two more mk1’s with a slightly different layout which Ill upload pics of once I get them fully assembled.
I would like to use the RED 036 firmware with the Mk1 hardware but am obviously having issues. Are you aware of any changes I can make to the code to make it compatible with the 8 LED layout with the last one staying lit as already occurs with the Mk1 019 firmware.
Or are there any updated versions of the mk1 firmware or am I using the most recent with the 019 release.
I may look into just upgrading them to the full 16 LED setup as described in the other forum post here in the Mk1 subforum.
Unfortunately there’s no easy fix for porting the RED’s firmware to hardware with only 8 LEDs. The problem isn’t so much the step indicator, it’s that the 16 LEDs are also used to indicate a bunch of other things. On the preferences page, for example, it’s used to indicate MIDI channel 1 – 16. I guess you could fix it on a per case basis, but it won’t be easy. Far easier would be to get a couple of 595s and resistor networks, and do 16 LEDs as per the RED design.
