Connect USB from Mac to NDLR 

load FW.hex to Teensy and press button onto Teensy

Nothing Happens, checked NDLR, still the old FW.

Any advise highly Appreciated

  Just got it! But Drone encoder is broken :(
Posted by: asteralesmusic - Yesterday, 11:04 PM - Forum: General Support - Replies (2)

Just got the NDLR and am learning the ropes, however have an issue with Encoder 3. It responds to a press, but will not change values when turned. I've power cycled and updated the firmware - the first time I updated it appeared to resolve the issue but it quickly returned and hasn't gone away. Big bummer. Seems like exactly what I am looking for to drive my synth rig so don't want to refund/send back but also don't want to wait for weeks to get going. Not sure I've seen anything similar so definitely feel a little deflated at the moment. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  Motif behaviour
Posted by: rob-ant - 12-09-2019, 11:34 PM - Forum: Feature Requests - No Replies

Hello. It would good to have the option to de-couple the motif from the chord changes, keeping it locked to the root, as with the drone. I'd also like to be able to de-couple the motif from chord invert, so it plays more like a 'traditional' sequencer, just transposing the pattern while the pad inverts.

  The NDLR & Behringer Synths
Posted by: 0Day - 12-08-2019, 12:20 PM - Forum: Show me what you got! - Replies (1)

Greetings all,
I got my NDLR a couple of weeks ago, but with job and life haven't had much of a chance to dive in until today. I just made this little ambient noodle using a Depmind12 on the pad, Neutron on the drone, Model-D on motif1 and another Neutron on motif2. Drumbrute is providing a little support.
Ambient Noodles?

  MIDI woes (part 1)
Posted by: Almost Aviation - 12-06-2019, 12:10 PM - Forum: General Support - Replies (13)

I am having persistent problems getting my NDLR to work consistently at a basic level. I am using it with an iPad and I have successfully routed the four modules to various synth apps. I have done this using port 1 and channels 1 to 4, although I have also tried using individual ports (1-4) with all channels (omni) selected, or even port 1/channel1, port2/channel2, etc. I don't really understand what the ports are, but in any case it makes no obvious difference to the following behaviours.

I am persistently getting a lot of stuck notes. Now I don't yet know whether this is down to the NDLR or something on the iPad setup, but in exploring it I have zeroed in on another, perhaps related issue I have noticed from day1. That is that I sometimes press a chord change button but even though the NDLR screen changes to show the new chord, the chord doesn't change. In fact it's worse than this, because sometimes the chord changes for one part (e.g. motif1) but not another or others. I have captured this with some MIDI monitor screen shots.

Here's what happens when I press the Pad button to start. The screen shows the chord as Ic in white and it plays a C major chord. So far , so good. But now I press the IV chord button. The NDLR screen changes to show the chord as 'IV F' in white, but the sound doesn't change. Here's the monitor - the Pad part is the leftmost column and the MIDI messages are shown with the most recent at the top:


Now I press Pad again to stop, but it looks like only one OFF action is sent. Here's the monitor:


This leaves some notes stuck on. I can clear them with shift+panic. Now I press the I chord button and Pad again, but I get an unexpected sequence of OFF/ON actions (I have cleared the log screen so only the new messages show):


And finally, here is the aftermath of the same problem but with the Motif1 part also running (column 2). You can see that Motif1 has been transposed to play an F chord, but the Pad has not:


Does anyone else see this?

  Chord sequencer feedback
Posted by: mfreer - 12-01-2019, 07:18 AM - Forum: General Support - Replies (3)

Hi Guys,

I managed to get some time this weekend to have a good play with the NDLR and have been having lots of fun.
In particular I got to put the Chord sequencer though it's paces. I hit a couple of issues that I'm hoping you can help with:

1. There doesn't seem to be a way to reset the chord sequence back to start. For example, if I have only the Pad part playing a chord sequence, then stop the Pad part before the chord sequence has completed, any attempt to restart the Pad part will resume from the point in the chord sequence that it was stopped. This behaviour is problematic if you want to restart your song from the beginning. Is there currently a way to reset the chord sequence back to the start? 

2. The Chord sequence seems to loop indefinitely.  For example, if I have configured a song to have one section (e.g. A:1) the NDLR will continually repeat this section until the user explicitly stops playback of all parts. It would be really nice if there was a way to specify that song playback should stop when the chord sequence has reached it's end (rather than looping). 

Hopefully this feedback is helpful. Thanks once again for building this fantastic tool.

  internal clock not working
Posted by: rob-ant - 12-01-2019, 12:57 AM - Forum: General Support - Replies (1)

Hello. For some reason my ndlr has stopped sending any midi when on 'internal' under settings page 3. Nothing plays, nothing receives midi (Ableton or synths) though all the parts light up blue. When I switch this to usb1 and trigger from Ableton, it works over usb and midi. As far as I can tell, I've not changed anything. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

  Clock out blocks midi?
Posted by: seanH - 11-30-2019, 02:55 PM - Forum: General Support - Replies (4)

I'm trying to simultaneously send a clock out (to Malekko Varigate 8+) while also sending midi to treadstone). I can get both to work, just not at the same time. Whenever I plug a jack into clock out, the midi stops. Is this not a supported scenario? Any ideas how I can get this working?

  Timing specs/precision
Posted by: FlavioB - 11-30-2019, 04:08 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

Hi all!
Would it be possible to share the timing measurements for this unit's routing function?
Like sending a pure MIDI clock signal (please check with an oscilloscope that it is *very* neat!) and then measure on the MIDI outputs how the signal looks like (delay, jitter, ripple, ground noise/offset, voltage and current).
I'm struggling in finding such a MIDI router which really does not deteriorate too much the MIDI clock signal...
