A small delay on components for the MegaCommand build, the PCBs wont be here until next week.
Waiting for the parts. I was sitting here thinking about the speed increase gained from the new SD Card library. This got me dreaming about turbo MIDI again. I decided to give 8x another shot. If you recall, I abandoned 8x in favour of a stable 4x link to accomodate the external sequencer and the doubled micro timing resolution.
I made a few adjustments to the interrupt and SYSEX code and lo and behold I’ve got 8x turbo working simultaneously on both ports, with the OLED display and external sequencer functionality. Kit and Pattern recall on the MD is almost instantaneous at this speed and sending sound to the Analog 4 is equally as fast .
ATmega2560 @ 16MHz still has plenty of grunt .
This opens up the door for a lot more things…
