Hemisphere Suite 1.8 largely addresses feature requests and bug fixes. There are a few new goodies, the most significant of which is the addition of an internal clock for Hemisphere. The internal clock replaces the category search feature, which probably nobody will miss.

1.8 also improves Buchla support and adds support for the unique interface of the Northern Light Modular 2OC.

Hemisphere Suite 1.8 contains the following updates:

  • Added an Internal Clock, which applies to all Hemisphere applets. This feature replaces the category search function (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/_Hemisphere-Basic-Instructions#5-internal-clock)
  • Metronome: Updated to control the internal clock
  • Added interface-level support for the Northern Light Modular 2OC
  • Made updates to Buchla voltage and pulse scaling
  • Made updates to Buchla offset for bi-polar Vector applets
  • Re-introduced about sixty scales that were removed from Ornament and Crime 1.3.4 due to memory constraints
  • Added AttenOff, a dual attenuator and offset applet (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/AttenOff)
  • Retired Bow Tie Sequential
  • MIDI In: Added Clock output option
  • Tuner: Fixed issue that prevented it from working when the module is flipped
  • Tuner: Added frequency display, in Hz
  • ShiftReg: Added bi-polar modulation of probability
  • ShiftReg: Added CV selection of length
  • ShiftReg: Added gated enable of probability when probability is locked
  • Shuffle: Added CV modulation of shuffle percentage
  • Slew: Added gated slew defeat feature

Thankses

This release was a collaborative effort. Thanks to Michael Thomas for valuable help with the Buchla stuff, to Mdashdotdashn for the tuner display update and the associated math, Jon Wheeler for the nice Shift Register features, and for everybody who made bug reports and feature requests. I know I didn't get to everything, and memory space is a serious consideration now. Any bugs left over are solely my errors. If I missed anybody here, I apologize.

Important Note: Hemisphere Suite 1.6 reconfigures the module's EEPROM (long-term storage) memory to make room for Vector Oscillator user waveforms. Please take steps to save your work in progress via MIDI sysex dumps before performing this update. This is done by long-pressing the right encoder for each app while recording with sysex librarian software. If you don't have anything you need to save, you can disregard this note.

The theme for Hemisphere Suite 1.6 is timing. Its centerpiece is the introduction of the Vector Oscillator, a waveform generator that allows you to create custom waveforms with up to twelve level/value segments, and then use those waveforms within applets as LFOs, envelope generators, and one-shot or cycling bi-polar modulators.

A full list of updates in 1.6 is here:

Nov. 9: Hemisphere 1.6C corrects an issue in which Tuner is not initialized in the correct hemisphere, another issue in which the FTM capture was not reversed for the Flip 180 version. The threshold for CV change detection was also raised, to reduce the effect of ADC noise. Additionally, waveform state saving was fixed for the Vector applets.

Nov. 1: Hemisphere Suite 1.6B corrects issues with VectorEG, including (1) When a new waveform was selected, the waveform started at the value of the last segment rather than at 0V, and (2) When a square/pulse waveform was selected, release did not work properly.

Oct. 30: Hemisphere Suite 1.6A corrects an issue that broke clock multiplication in ClockDiv and sync in Vector LFO, and an issue that causes the last step to be played twice in both TrigSeqs.

Oct. 29: Hemisphere Suit 1.6:

1.5A makes the following updates. Please back up your The Darkest Timeline data via MIDI SysEx before installing this update.

  • Enigma, Jr.: Fixes a graphics offset issue in the right hemisphere
  • The Darkest Timeline: Adds gate length setting in the Setup Screen
  • Enigma: The Library now cannot be accessed nor auditioned while the song is playing. This allows you to freely move through the screens without interfering with playback in progress.

Hemisphere Suite 1.5's theme is the compositional use of shift registers. Its centerpiece is Enigma, a shift register (a.k.a. "Turing Machine") workstation. This release also adds RunglBook (a chaotic shift-register modulator based on Rob Hordijk's rungler circuit), "A"SR (a 256-step "analog" shift register delay), ShiftGate (a shift-register-based aleatoric gate/trigger sequencer), Enigma Jr., an applet that allows CV selection of Turing Machines, and more.

Here's the complete list of updates for 1.5:

  • Significantly changed the operation of Screen Saver mode. The calibration option now sets the number of minutes, not seconds, until the screen saver activates. The screen saver is now "screen blanking," and always simply darkens the screen. You can blank the screen at any time by long-pressing the Up button.
  • Added full app Enigma, a shift register (a.k.a. "Turing Machine") workstation that allows you to curate a library of up to 40 Turing Machine-like registers and build four track songs by chaining them together. The philosophy involves the use of shift registers as repeatable compositional elements rather than ephemeral improvisational elements. (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/Enigma)
  • LowerRenz: Fixed issue that potentially caused a crash when both hemispheres had LowerRenz selected.
  • Carpeggio: Standardized tuning and note values, to A=440Hz, C4=0V, C4=MIDI Note #60
  • Added applet Enigma Jr., which allows real-time composition (via CV) using your Enigma library. (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/Enigma,-Jr.)
  • Fixed issue that caused quantizer latency to be higher than it should have been.
  • Added applet RunglBook, a chaotic shift-register modulation based on Rob Hordijk's rungler circuit. (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/RunglBook)
  • Added applet Squanch, a Shifting Quantizer/Adder. (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/Squanch---Shifting-Quantizer)
  • Added applet "A"SR, an analog shift register delay. In one hemisphere, it has two outputs; when selected in two hemispheres, the buffer is linked and uses all four outputs. (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/%22A%22SR)
  • Added applet ShiftGate, a dual shift register-based aleatoric gate or trigger sequencer (https://github.com/Chysn/O_C-HemisphereSuite/wiki/ShiftGate)
  • Removed References, the last of the original Ornament and Crime apps. Most of References's salient functionality is incorporated into Hemisphere applets, specifically Voltage and Tuner.
  • Envelope Follower: Added per-channel configuration for Follow and Duck functions.
  • MIDI In/MIDI Out: Log is now accessed with button push rather than screen saver activation (because screen saver is no longer a thing; see above).
  • ShiftReg: Increased low range to 0V for better support of digital oscillators.
  • Sequence5: Same as above
  • Minor font changes to improve readability
