firmware upgrades – Octocontroller & Tempi

Even good digital modules do need firmware upgrades from time to time, either for bugfixing or for implementing new functions. Here’s two recent updates:

  • Abstract Data’s ADE-32 Octocontroller will receive an update soon, CLICK HERE to see the newest manual showing the firmware update procedure.
    Justim from AD says: “The upgrade is free and optional – the only 2x bug fixes are both pretty obscure but I am hoping it’ll be popular (and worth the time/cost of development!). To upgrade – customers will need to purchase a standard 5V USB to FTDI cable. This is the same cable that is now used by some of the Arduino boards, Raspbery Pi, Beagle etc. It’ll be used for all future Abstract Data digital modules and it’s also the system being used by Soulsby Synths. They are available through places like Mouser, Digikey, Sparkfun, etc.”
  • Make Noise’s Tempi’s new firmware “tempi11″ makes External SYNC and RUN/ STOP behaviors even better.
    Download the zip file HERE. Everything you need to do the update is included in this download. File, instructions, descriptions, contact info in case you have troubles.

April, 28th – on Thursday Special Workshop:

WorkshopDear modularists,

for this month’s special workshop we do have a very very special guest: Acclaimed artist (and also regular customer) Joey Blush aka Blush Response will tell us how he got into modular. As everybody develops over time his own approach with modular synths we think it is most interesting to hear from a real expert how he programs patches, integrates external gear, prepares for a live set.

To tune in already here’s a links to his work:  – and to an interview:  – Over the last years Joey collected an immense experience which he will share with us.

This Thursday April 28th at 6pm in our showroom (at Kotti above Kaisers) – Number of participants is limited to 15 guests. For your registration please confirm to Thomas via

See you!  .. the schneidersladen showroom team.
