Published on Feb 22, 2017 MAKEN0ISE
"TEMPI31 is a new firmware for the TEMPI module that adds new functionality. See the included revised manual for full details on the update feature set.This new firmware may be be loaded into your TEMPI using the included TEMPI31.wav file.
If your TEMPI flashes Buttons for CH.s 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on power up, you already have TEMPI31, the latest version of TEMPI firmware. There is no reason to run this update.
If your TEMPI is marked with v31 on the backside of the module, you already have TEMPI31, the latest version of TEMPI firmware. There is no reason to run this update.
(see new Manual Revision for full description of new features and behaviors)
1. BUTTON1 may be set to Leading Tap Tempo. When this option is set to ON, Button1 sets the Tempo referenced by ALL channels when calculating divisions and multiples. Once set, it is still possible to Machine Program Channel 1 to tempi other than 1/1. This option is engaged on the new CLOCK EDIT page in item (3) below.
2. New option for quicker MACHINE programming: during Coarse Machine Programming, while holding down relevant PGM button, press opposing PGM button to double the divisor or multiplier. For example, hold PGM_A and press BUTTON2 twice for /2, then, still holding PGM_A, press PGM_B once for /4, twice for /8, etc.
3. New Page: CLOCK EDIT. Access Clock Edit Page by double-pressing PGM_A and PGM_B simultaneously. On this page each channel can be set to output CLOCK (BUTTON lights BLUE) or TRIGGER (BUTTON lights OFF). Additionally, Ch1 can be set to have its Coarse Human Programming behavior replaced with Tap Tempo, with its BUTTON lighting on this page as follows: PURPLE for Tap Tempo/Clock output, RED for Tap Tempo/Trigger Output (BLUE and OFF are the same as all other channels).
4. On Program Edit Page, Run/Stop and Shift can now both be enabled at once (Buttons 4 and 5 both lit). When both behaviors are enabled, the State Select Gate input is used for Shift, and the Mod input for Run/Stop. When only one behavior is enabled, the Mod input is used as before. Button6 on the Program Edit Page now selects Jumbled or Unjumbled for both Shift and Reset information. Run/Stop Toggled option is removed."
