  • update coming?

    hello,
    don't want to stress the programming team, but was wondering if there is some important update in the running for the synthbox please?

    We are on the hook to release synthbox with flipped UI mode in the next couple of weeks.

    Thanks for your support.

Why Do you not just post to your website???????? such a big pain! plus how can you format an ssd card ? I work on a macbook pro but not a computer person at all thats why I am into modular!!

      Jonsroom78@aol.com, I can help you out.

      All of the latest versions of the firmware contain the option to flip the UI. The downloads and instructions for installing the new firmware are in the Firmware Downloads subforum https://forum.1010music.com/forum/pr...ware-downloads.

      Here's a link to the bitbox 2.1.1 firmware: https://forum.1010music.com/forum/pr...box-2-1-0-beta

      Here's the fxbox firmware: https://forum.1010music.com/forum/pr...ry-image-1-2-2

      Here's the SYnthbox 1.0.5 firmware: https://forum.1010music.com/forum/pr...box-1-0-5-beta
      Here's the toolbox 1.1.4 firmware: https://forum.1010music.com/forum/pr...box-1-1-4-beta

      To change the Flip UI setting:

      1. Press the Home button repeatedly until you see the simple rectangular menu with the "Settings" option. On toolbox, you have to hold down the Home button for 5 seconds to get to this menu.
      2. Touch "Settings" to display the module settings screen.
      3. Use the knob closest to the "Flip UI" setting to change the setting. Note that after you change the setting, the knob mapping will be flipped and you will need to use a different knob to flip it back.

      Here's a good description of how to reformat a microSD card: https://gopro.com/help/articles/Solu...a-Mac-Computer. You will need to select the MS-DOS (Fat) option when reformatting in order to be compatible with bitbox.

      Let me know if you need any more help.

    Looking forward to it. Now that I have my BitBox flipped I have not been using SynthBox firmware because I need to flip it back manually. I'm getting itchy to play with the SynthBox firmware again.

      Flipped UI was not something I was looking for, bitbox and synthbox join a nice seat here in a standard eurorack case with cables pointing downwards


      Please do not neglect synthbox firmware, it has so much potential!!!

      Especially with all CV input jacks available, one should consider using them in all kinds of ways, this was the reason for purchasing these modules in the first place!

      It was designed for Eurorack!

      Midi is an asset, but one should concentrate more on putting into play the CV and Gate potential!

      (but of course this is only my humble little opinion

        There's no doubt that there will be updates coming in the future. Aaron is listening to our feedback and doing the best he can. Flipped UI mode was something that was unveiled at NAMM, so it's not a major update, but it's nice to have the option to use it, since it's ready.

        I agree that there is massive potential in the platform, and so it can be frustrating that all of the features we would really like to see aren't there yet, but we just have to be patient...

          Since we demonstrated flipped UI at NAMM for toolbox and synthbox, we wanted to get that in your hands as promised.

          Yes, we have a huge todo list that grows faster than we can finish items on it. Thanks for all the requests. Please be patient as we work through them. Please also be patient as we work on new things you haven't asked for--yet.

                It’s in the firmware downloads forum. Get it from the 1.0 download, but use the Matrix.bin from the latest firmware download.

                Have fun!
