Firmware v2.0 for the FH-1 USB MIDI Host module is now available. Base on an all-new USB stack, the new firmware has two key additions - support for USB hubs (so you can connect more than one MIDI device at the same time), and support for USB HID peripherals (e.g. trackballs, gamepads etc.).
Firmware version 1.8 for the FH-1 module is now released. This adds a small number of new features and fixes, but is primarily released for compatibility with High Speed USB devices such as the Electron Digitakt.
Firmware version 1.6 for the FH-1 module is now released. This adds a number of new features, including release velocity and trigger support in the MIDI/CV converters, the ability to step through presets with trigger inputs, and support for loading configuration scripts via SysEx.
At NAMM ’16 we’ll be showing the new firmware v1.5 for the FH-1 USB MIDI host module, to be released immediately after the show.
New features include - new glide and gate length parameters for the built-in sequencers. - portamento support for the MIDI/CV converters. - per-device support in configuration scripts, allowing different configurations to be selected automatically when different MIDI devices are connected. - front panel settings can be changed and menu actions can be performed via MIDI.
The release will be announced on the forum thread here. Come and see the new features for yourself at Booth #5000.
The FHX-1 is an expansion module for the FH-1 'faderHost' USB MIDI Host Eurorack module, adding 8 more outputs to the FH-1’s own. Up to 7 FHX-1s can be added to an FH-1, for a total of 64 outputs controlled from the one USB device.
The FHX-1 is showing for the first time today at the Brighton Modular Meet and is expected to be available in July 2015.
The FH-1 'faderHost' is a USB MIDI Host in an 8HP Eurorack module, allowing you to directly connect a USB MIDI controller to your modular synthesizer. Using a suitable connector box "USB MIDI controller" here includes an iPad or plain old computer.
As well as simple direct control of the output CVs from MIDI CCs, the FH-1 also offers * LFOs on each output * Step sequencers * Polyphonic MIDI/CV conversion * and much more
The FH-1 will be unveiled at the NAMM show, January 2015.
