MIDIboxFM V1.4j

   o support for 8bit LCD access mode (e.g. for Newhaven OLEDs)

MIDIboxFM V1.4i

   o Wavetable step #16..31 now stored/restored as intended

MIDIboxFM V1.4h

   o Wavetables can now be changed via SysEx when they are stored in RAM

MIDIboxFM V1.4g

   o fixed SysEx import issue with OP Algorithm

   o added presets/bank2/funkybank-v1.syx to the release package.
     This bank contains 128 awesome patches which have been created by Martin aka. mburch

MIDIboxFM V1.4f

   o display updated when the patch name has been changed from external

MIDIboxFM V1.4e

   o all drumsets are selectable again (previously only A1..A5)

   o presets/midibox_fm_drumsets.syx has been overworked, it now
     contains 16 *different* drumsets

   o changed encoder mode to MIOS_ENC_MODE_DETENTED3
     since it's compatible with most encoders

MIDIboxFM V1.4d

   o sammichFM option: encoder scrolls menu page, up/down button
     select drum patch

MIDIboxFM V1.4c

   o changed way how percussions are handled to ensure that no trigger
     is lost on "short notes"

MIDIboxFM V1.4b

   o OPL3 register accesses improved for sammichFM

MIDIboxFM V1.4a

   o bugfix for Instrument->AOUT assignments

MIDIboxFM V1.4

   o PIC18F4685 only: CC assignment changes for Velocity/Aftertouch/Modwheel/WT
     are now non-destructive (shadow buffers are used for all parameters)

   o PIC18F4685 only: CC assignment names are now print on screen

   o changed velocity/modwheel/aftertouch depth parameter resolution to allow
     1:1 modulation of 4bit OP parameters.
     E.g. Depth=15, Init=0 will control the parameter from 0,,15 in positive direction,
     and Depth=-15, Init=15 from 15..0 in negative direction
     7bit parameters can't be modulated in full range anymore, but this is
     acceptable considered that OP parameters are more important to form the
     sound timbre.

   o Audio Channel selections now assigned to CC#13..CC#15 to avoid conflict
     with Panorama CC #10

MIDIboxFM V1.3

   o PIC18F4685 only: Wavetables are stored in RAM for non-destructive editing

   o name is now entered when a patch should be stored in SAVE menu

   o random generator now copies new patch into all selected instruments

   o fixed waveform display in drum pages

MIDIboxFM V1.2a

   o fixed save function

MIDIboxFM V1.2

   o The firmware now supports the PIC18F4685.
     The additional memory is used for new features:
     - Nils added some nice looking special characters for LFO, OSC waveforms
       and operator connections
     - Wilba added some special CS handling code for sammichFM
     - TK added a random patch generator (-> RND page at the end of the menu)

   o Instrument LEDs are flashing now whenever a gate of an assigned oscillator
     is triggered

   o added possibility to play a note from the CS:
     press CFG + Instrument Key 1/2/3/4 to trigger a note

   o bugfix for finetune in upper range

MIDIboxFM V1.1e

   o fixed INS display bug in AOUT page

MIDIboxFM V1.1d

   o built for MIOS V1.9g (or higher) to support new encoder types.
     Rotary encoders won't work with older MIOS versions!

   o a new SysEx command allows to store the current patch into 

     It can be used of no Control Surface is available - parameters
     can be changed via CC or SysEx

   o volume parameters now updated immediately on CC #28..#31 changes

   o reduced intensity of LFO/EG5 Pitch Depth parameter

MIDIboxFM V1.1c

   o base address of encoder table corrected (encoders were 
     not working on new installations)

MIDIboxFM V1.1b

   o support for direct RAM buffer access via SysEx
     (-> see midibox_fm_sysex_implementation.txt)

   o support for AOUT_NG module

MIDIboxFM V1.1

   o this version requires MIOS V1.9 or higher!
     It won't run with older MIOS versions, since the address space
     >= 0x7c00 is allocated

   o AOUT mapping now stored into first BankStick when the AOUT
     menu is exit. The values will be restored during boot phase.

   o an alternative view for the main page has been integrated, which
     shows a little bit more details about an instrument (especially
     the complete patch name) instead of cryptic numbers.
     You can switch to the old ("full") view within the CFG menu.
     The default view can be specified in the main.asm/setup_*.asm

   o the internal WT editor now allows to modify the parameters
     of a whole track at once, this speeds up the initialisation
     of a new WT sequence. Just select the step position beyond 31
     ("All" will be print) and modify the Mod, #1, #2 or #3 column

   o the WT editor now marks parameters with a '!' so long they haven't
     been stored in EEPROM

   o some minor bugfixes and improvements have been made

MIDIboxFM V1.0

   o Initial Release


- a second set of modulation parameters at least for velocity and modwheel
  (Problem: limited amount of free patch parameters)
  Alternatively we could make the assignment of the three available
  modulation parameters variable?
