"Hi Everyone!

The past week myself and Celine worked non-stop on the patching / modulation grid for the SSP software. We wanted to take our time to bring everything together on one screen, such that you can add modules, patch modules, and enable/disable modulation/sources targets easily without having to switch menus.

Besides that we also wanted to add visualization features to the modulation grid so you can more easily see what modules a certain module is modulating :-) Each time a module is patched to another module it gets highlighted with a cyan border, and the list of possible modulation destinations on the right hand side is updated. The two first encoders can then be used to scroll the lists of accepted modulations and modulations which will be sent (right hand side).

Although this was not in the original kickstarter tech specs, we've chosen encoders for the SSP with a push-function. This means that in some menus or contexts you can push the encoder for additional functionality, for example in the network grid you can use the push function to enable/disable modulation sources/targets in the lists on the right hand side.

In the above video you can see how I patch both internal and external modulation sources into our wavetable oscillator. As you might remember the WT Osc has X, Y and Z modulation inputs, which I'm modulating here with an internal LFO as well as external oscillators / LFOs (the make noise STO and intellijel Dixie II).

Working the modulation grid took a LOT of time, because it has to do a lot with usability and we had to go through several revisions of the UI and the button mapping before it made sense to us and let us patch quickly. We'll continue to work on the UI over the next weeks, focusing on the usability and workflow of the software and continuing the test the hardware.

In the meantime we've also received a lot of parts for the production and more will be delivered this week and next week. We're getting ready for the production for the rest of the SSPs in the upcoming months.

As always we'll keep you posted of our progress. Thanks again for your support and patience!

Bert & Celine"
