Track and Drum instrument names can be edited so fast and easy like typing a SMS on a mobile phone. Use the first 10 GP buttons or encoders to cycle the characters (like on a telephone keypad), and the remaining buttons/encoders to select a character directly, move the cursor, delete/insert characters, selecting a preset (with the encoder) and to exit the editor.
<LI><B>Track Instrument:</B> enters a special configuration page for instrument parameters such as Program & Bank Change and Instrument Name</LI>
<LI><B>INIT:</B> this item will flash whenever the selected partition type requires a re-initialisation of the track memory. Press&Hold the GP button below this item for two seconds to confirm the initialisation (this will clear all steps!)</LI>

<H2> <IMG SRC="images/bullet.gif" ALT=""> Track Instrument Page</H2>
 
<P CLASS=INFO>This page is usually entered from the Track Event page by pressing GP button #8 (under "Trk.Inst."). Inside the page, you can switch back to the event page by pressing the same GP button.</P>
 
<CENTER><IMG SRC="midibox_seq/cs4/trkinst1.gif" width=481 height=19 ALT="Track Instrument"></IMG></CENTER><BR>
 
<P CLASS=INFO>This page allows to configure following parameters:
<UL CLASS=CL>
<LI><B>Port:</B> the MIDI port to which the instrument will send (same parameter like in the Event page)</LI>
<LI><B>Channel:</B> the channel to which the instrument will send (same parameter like in the Event page)</LI>
<LI><B>PC:</B> the program change event which will be sent while a track switches to this track.<BR>
<I>Note: together with the bank change events the PC event will only be sent if it is different compared to the previous track, since it could cause an additional delay on your synth before the newly selected patch is ready! Note also that the first note could be delayed for this reason, therefore it's recommended to use this feature only if the receiving MIDI device can handle patch changes quickly!</I>
<LI><B>BankH</B> and <B>BankL</B>: the high- and low byte of a bank change CC. They will be sent before the program change if enabled.
<LI><B>Track Event</B>: switches back to the Track Event page.

<CENTER><IMG SRC="midibox_seq/cs4/mixer1.gif" width=481 height=19 ALT="Mixer Map"></CENTER></IMG></P>
<P CLASS=DESC>Values can be changed and sent with the GP encoders. The leftmost value ("----") deactivates the mixer item - no value will be sent.</P>
<P CLASS=DESC>The ALL and FAST button are working as well. The ALL button provides the two known functions (values set to same value while button pushed, relative changes as long as LED active). The FAST function will be deactivated/activated automatically depending on the value range.</P>
<P CLASS=DESC>If a GP button of a mixer channel is pressed, all events of this channel will be dumped.
<P CLASS=DESC>Values are sent directly over the selected MIDI port - all ports are selectable, even Loopback and AOUT!</P>
 
<P CLASS=DESC>When the SELECT button is pressed, a utility page will be displayed:<BR>
985,13 → 1003,12
<LI>to save the map into BankStick</LI>
<LI>to dump the complete map via the MIDI/AOUT/Loopback ports</LI>
<LI>to change the assignments for CC1/CC2/CC3/CC4</LI>
<LI>to change the mixer map name</LI>
<LI>to activate the Live Send" mode. If enabled, value changes in the mixer map will be immediately sent, if disabled they will only be sent with the Dump function (either triggered in this page, or with a GP button for a single channel in the mixer main page)</LI>
</UL></P>
 
<P CLASS=DESC><I>Hot tip: since the ports and channels are freely assignable and working totally independent from the selected sequencer patterns, the mixer map function behaves like a MIDI controller - you can define up to 127 maps which can be stored, restore, dumped and controlled in realtime!<BR>In song mode it is possible to dump one or more mixer maps before switching to a new pattern set.</I></P>
 
 
 
<H2> <IMG SRC="images/bullet.gif" ALT=""> Mute Page </H2>
<P CLASS=DESC>Within the mute page you can quickly mute/unmute tracks with the 16 GP buttons:<BR>

1006,9 → 1023,11
<CENTER><IMG SRC="midibox_seq/cs4/mute3.gif" width=481 height=19 ALT="Mute Page"></IMG></CENTER></P>
This page allows you to Mute or Unmute all tracks, all layers of the selected track, or all tracks and layers with a single push on the button.</P>
 
<P CLASS=DESC>With V4.0 beta43 and higher it's possible to synchronize Mutes and Unmutes to a selectable measure of 1..256 steps. This feature is inspired from the "MIDI Clip Launcher" of Ableton Live and can be enabled in the Utility->Options page! Whenever a GP button is pressed, the Mute won't take place immediately, but synchronized to the measure. A countdown will be displayed under the track name to inform you about an ongoing mute/unmute.</P>

<P CLASS=DESC>With synchronisation enabled, it's sometimes preferable to bypass this option for an immediate mute/unmute. This can be achieved by activating the FAST button function.</P>

<IMG SRC="images/1x1dot.gif" height=20 ALT=""><BR>
<LI><I>V4.087</I>
<UL CLASS=CL>
<LI> new page: "Track Instrument"<BR>
Can be selected with MENU-&gt;EVNT-&gt;Trk Inst (GP #8) or from the main page (after Track Event item)<BR>
Allows to configure the MIDI port, channel and instrument name.
 
<LI> the new Track Instrument page also allows to select Program Change and Bank (Low/High byte)<BR>
If activated, these parameters will be sent when the sequencer is started and on pattern changes.<BR>
Please note: a program and bank change can stall your synth so that the first note could be delayed!
Use this function only when the device can handle patch changes quickly!
 
<LI> added CV_GATE_SR1 and CLK_SR to MBSEQ_HW.V4 config<BR>
This is the prefered option to add CV gates and DIN clock/start signals to your MIDIbox SEQ in future.
See also updated <A HREF="http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_seq_manual_hw.html">HW section in the user manual</A>.
 
<LI> 8 individual DIN Sync clock outputs with individual divider and pulsewidth values are
provided now. A clock output can optionally be turned to a Start/Stop output.<BR>
The outputs are available at the configured CLK_SR DOUT shift register pin D7..D0
(D7=first output, D6=second output, etc...)<BR>
The clock parameters can be configured in the CV configuration page.
 
<LI> Mixer page: channel events can be dumped by pressing the corresponding GP button.<BR>
This also allows to prepare different mixer setups, sending to the same channel, triggered
by a GP button
 
<LI> Mixer page: press SELECT to activate/deactivate "live sending" mode (values are sent
while moving an encoder)
 
<LI> Mute page: the synchronized mute/unmute option can be temporary overruled by activating
the FAST button function
 
<LI> improved step recording display for drum tracks
 
<LI> Selected Datawheel mode in edit page now stored/restored to/from SD Card
 
<LI> STM32F4: support for bootloader "enforce_usb_device" flag

<P CLASS=DESC>Here a MBSEQ_HW.V4 configuration example which works with the MBSEQ Frontpanel PCB:
<TT><PRE style="margin-left:20px">
##################################################
# CV and Gate/Trigger/Sync Setup
##################################################
 
# the 8 CV gates can be assigned to a shift register (0=off, 1-32: number of shift register):
# - 1st CV Gate available at DOUT SR output D7
# - 2nd CV Gate available at DOUT SR output D6
# - 3rd CV Gate available at DOUT SR output D5
# - ...
# - 8th CV Gate available at DOUT SR output D0
CV_GATE_SR1 3
 
# and DIN Clock Outputs can be assigned to a shift register as well (0=off, 1-32: number of shift register):
# D7..D0 will output individual clock or start/stop signals which can be configured in the CV configuration page
CLK_SR 4
 
# additional gate triggers are available on common digital output pins of the
# DOUT shift register chain - they are assigned to AOUT channel #16 (Note C-1, C#1, D-1, ...)
# define the shift registers which should be used here (each provides 8 gates)
# Note that SRs assigned to this function cannot be used as LED outputs (exclusive function)
# Allowed values: 1-32, 0 disables the function, all other values invalid and not allowed
DOUT_GATE_SR1 5
DOUT_GATE_SR2 6
DOUT_GATE_SR3 0
DOUT_GATE_SR4 0
DOUT_GATE_SR5 0
DOUT_GATE_SR6 0
DOUT_GATE_SR7 0
DOUT_GATE_SR8 0
</PRE></TT></P>
 
<P CLASS=DESC>The gates are available at the 3rd DOUT shift register, the clocks at the 4th DOUT shift register, and additional gates/drum triggers at the 5th and 7th DOUT shift registers. This works, since Wilba's Frontpanel PCB only uses two DOUT shift registers; a MBHP_DOUTX4 module connected to J2 of the PCB will represent SR 3, 4, 5 and 6.<BR>
If more gates are required, just add another MBHP_DOUTX4 module and assign the number 7..10 to DOUT_GATE_SR3..6 accordingly.</P>
 
<H2> <IMG SRC="images/bullet.gif" ALT=""> Ethernet Interface </H2>
 
<P CLASS=DESC>An Ethernet port can be optionally added to send and receive OSC messages. It requires a <A HREF="mbhp_eth.html">MBHP_ETH</A> module. Details about the possibilities are explained <A HREF="midibox_osc.html">at this page</A>.</P>
