Firmware 2.0 released

Post by admin »

Firmware version 2.0 has now been released. It has a number of additions, many (but not all) of which are aimed at more advanced users. The changes and additions include a new legato slide feature that allows sliding over a range of multiple notes (by Jesse Chappell of SonoSaurus/Thumbjam); independent mapping of breath pressure to CC, velocity, key pressure, and channel pressure; and the ability to make custom fingering charts based on common wind instrument fingering patterns. The full list of changes and additions is in the changelog:

The WARBL Documentation page has the necessary QMKToolbox app for updating the firmware, as described in the User Manual and in this video:

Note, when installing QMK Toolbox you may receive warnings that it is an unsafe, but it is okay to install and run it. If you are on a Mac you may have to jump through a few hurdles to install it. If you have difficulties you can follow the suggestions from the QMK folks here: https://github.com/qmk/qmk_toolbox/issues/227

The new firmware is available here: https://warbl.xyz/WARBL_2.0.ino.zip

The new features are described in the embedded documentation in the Configuration Tool (click on the yellow "info" buttons) and in the updated User Manual.

You're welcome to contact me with questions or feedback by replying to this post or by email at info(at)warbl.xyz.

Many thanks to Jesse Chappell and Michael Eskin for their help with this firmware and the Configuration Tool!

Please do note that this firmware update will erase your settings (reverting to factory settings). If you'd like to save your settings you can use the export/import preset feature that is available at the bottom of the Configuration Tool when you are using on a PC or Mac (not in the iOS app). If you want to save settings for all three instruments, you'll need to export a separate preset file for each instrument.
