grandPA / SPA 1.1 Update

Support / Updates

SO! What is the grandPA update about?

  • adds new feature to change the sample by CV
  • the threshold for changing samples corresponds to 1 semitone of quantized voltage
  • if CV changes the sample is changed at the threshold or is changed only at the rising gate signal (depending on the mode)
  • minor UI bug fixes
  • more stable
  • improved stability when functioning with SPA

How to access the new feature?

Hold the FN button and press the UP button as if you were activating the GRAIN SYNC feature.

Now there are 4 states:

  • OFF
  • CHANGE SAMPLE ON RISING GATE (blinking LED + letters moving on the display)
  • CHANGE SAMPLE ON CHANGE IN CV (LED ON and letters moving on the display)

Note: all grandPAs shipped in 2015 are version 1.0 … grandPAs shipped in 2016 are 1.1

Spa updated, too

With this update we also have update on SPA which also had few bugs so the stability of these two is now much better!!!

To get the SPA update, just add a note to your order of the grandPa update pack and we will add it for free! (just write: “please include SPA chip”)

NOTE: to get the grandPA and SPA working perfectly, we highly recommend to update both!

If you have a hacker soul, you can try to upload a hex- file to the atmega using method in the readme file of this repository (because it can sometimes be a lot of hassle, we cannot promise much tech support for this option).
