Re: New Fluxamasynth Library

Ok, that did it. Thanks for all of the things you did there. Whatever the cause was, the new download is working great, and having the examples along with the library is very helpful.

Re: New Fluxamasynth Library

I must be dense in the head or something. When I put these in the "libraries" folder in the arduino documents folder, they don't show up in the "import library..." list. Ok, so I tried a few more things: When I was trying to use this as a library in the libraries folder, I was getting this error: "c...

Re: Fluxamasynth software serial

It's just that I want to use this shield in my live act... so I'm still hopeful. :)

Re: Fluxamasynth software serial

Heya, Paul. It was great meeting you at Maker Faire!! This is me bugging you, at your advisement, about the software serial code for the fluxamasynth shield. :)

Re: Fluxamasynth software serial

I can't even get it to work with a software serial library... at all. So, my speed is 0 baud. 0 BPM, 0 mph. I'm still hoping to see some code you had mentioned a solution for this.

what does the fluxamasynth sound like?

Here's all 127 voices of bank 0:

Fluxamasynth software serial

Hi there. I waited a while and tried taking a crack at converting the fluxamasynth.cpp file from hardware serial over to software serial. I get no compiler errors, but... no sound. So my theory was wrong about using softwareSerial.print(whatever,BIN) instead of Serial.write(whatever) ... any ideas w...

Re: fluxamasynth examples

Am I on the right track here? I can see the buffer length matches the string of commands lined up, so if I break each of the commands into its own mySerial.print(command1,BIN); does that get me to functional parity as what the hardware serial is doing? Here's the first few lines of the fluxamasynth....

Re: fluxamasynth examples

Ok, right, so... software serial doesn't have a "write" function, so that's not going to work as-is. I can see that softwareserial has a print function, and seemingly with a BIN converter, but ... I don't know how to handle the buffer length parameter with software serial. Any clues?

Re: fluxamasynth examples

Maybe when the fluxamasynth object is being created, pass in which serial device I want it to work with? Just stabbing at science here. I barely speak english, and zero c++... so feel free to edify me. Please edify me, I mean.

Re: fluxamasynth examples

Okidoke. Will do. :) I've been trying to get the software serial theory into practice, without any luck. Just looking at the Fluxamasynth.cpp file, I can see that it's calling "Serial" for all of its commands. Is that going to be hard coded to the hardware serial device? I don't know much about how ...

fluxamasynth examples

Sigh. This shield is pretty cool. The example code is a bit thin. So, here's a sketch that plays a bunch of random notes, as it steps through the different sounds the fluxamasynth can play. #include "Fluxamasynth.h" Fluxamasynth synth; int counter = 0; int channel = 0; int voice = 0; int j = 0; void...
