MegaCommand // MCL 4.0
The MegaCommand is open source hardware designed to enhance the Machinedrum’s sequencing and sound design capabilities.
After many months of development and testing, we proudly present MegaCommand Live (MCL) 4.0.
The firmware has been produced alongside the MD X.05 OS.
When connected to MCL, the MD now has access to a third editing mode beyond Classic and Extended, termed Enhanced mode.
Enhanced mode fully integrates the GUI between the two devices. All MD editing commands can now be used to seamlessly program and control the MCL sequencer and navigate the MCL GUI.
In 4.0 we’ve reworked much of the MIDI and sequencer code. MCL now outperforms the timing and groove of the MD.
Thanks to a helpful testing team, a number of bugs and GUI inconsistencies have been fixed.
We have updated some terminologies and workflows to better align MCL with the MD design.
Please read the Changelog and updated User Manual before uploading the new firmware(s) as there have been a number of significant changes.
A summary of the Enhanced Mode GUI integration can be found in the first few pages of the manual.
