.:features of the old v1.0 version (canceled):.

  • lcd display to show informations and stuff.
  • full emulation of the old internal sequencer.
  • more advanced editing of the patterns like transpose, step forward and back, display of the next note and pattern position, randomize,1/32 notes, pitchmode and time mode is not separated and pattern length is not fixed to 16 steps anymore.
  • midi implementation.
  • pattern select via midi bankselect… trackmode is not needed anymore and will be skipped !
  • better syncronisation…it can be synconized via midi clock (midi to cv/gate is not needed anymore) or it can syncronized via an internal bpm counter which is syncronized with a pattern select.
  • standard midi stuff like note on off…accent slide filter automation.
  • velocity (filter).
  • 2 lfo (filter).
  • 2 envelopes (filter).
  • backup of the internal sequences .
  • online editing on the pc during the 303 replays a song.
  • the old ram is replaced by a eeprom…a backup battery is not needed anymore.
  • 64 patterns … extenable to 512 patterns.
  • 2 internal 0-5 v analog outputs. which can be used to control stuff for every note… it’s possible to setup a value for the aux outputs… that is more for ppl who are planning to do mods for the 303 by default they aren’t used…or for people who are using a modular synth (cv outputs) .
  • a sid emulation is included to make new sounds…means the 303 has a new osc to create 3 osc sounds… of course the old one is still working and usable…you can use the old or new. (this feature will not be included in the release… i guess i need a second cpu for this
  • random pattern generator…each feature gate note up down accent and slide can be generated separately… also it’s possible to setup a mask on which steps a random should be preformed.
  • transpose up and down.
  • shift left and right of the pattern.
  • a simple pattern init is implemented.
  • init silence and init 1/16 c.
  • ultra303 is working on the ml 303 clone.
  • a special copy feature is implemented to duplicate for example the first 4 steps to 16 steps by coping the first 4 steps to the other 12 steps…same is available for 2->16 and 8->16.
  • scale correction of the patterns. means you never get disharmonic tones when you know the chords of your song… there are 20 scales to select from.
  • special clear feature is implemented…means it’s possible to clear note accent slide up and down separately…also it’s possible to setup a mask for this.
  • uploading of the firmware via midi
  • a pattern groove editor is implemented… means a shuffle on the pattern is possible.
