TEMPO: re-set tempo to values between 1 bpm to 256 instead for 30 bpm to 299. anyone still doing jungle anymore? :?

Sound Design: ambient & dark-wave needs...ALT+LFO enables LFO to be transposed down or up by OCT function...it would be nice to slow things down a bit. longer sweeps. something that made EMS synths so special & unique.

Radical...maybe a 2.something firmware update. not getting great joy out of DIVE, SCOOP, VIBR, WAH & TREM buttons. why not designate the buttons to work as a set of 5 banks to hold "playlists" of presets/sequences, 16 pages each. eg; ALT+ DIVE, REC..1st white key blinks, dial up a desired preset, tap the first white key, it goes solid, the next key blinks, waiting for another preset/sequence to be entered...and so on, and so on, until all 16 pages of the playlist are filled and all the little white keys showing solid. tap the REC again to exit script entry mode... active bank (DIVE) is also lit solid, indicating it's got a playlist. hit the play (arrow) key. bob's your uncle.

FIRMWARE: why not do what microsoft does? open-source the firmware editor, provide it as a download so users can hack their little UNOs to their hearts content (obviously with a 'this will invalidate your warranty" notice) let the user base fix bugs, expand features, make more bugs , make more features, share like baseball cards...when they blow up their UNO from making bad decisions, they can download an older firmware & start all over...might do surprising things for a product's longevity & cultural impact!

I'm not sure if its been said already, I have gone through the thread and I didn't see it but how about another LFO which can be routed where ever you want it, and please make the LFO speed slower so I can have really slow filter sweeps and really slow PWM.

This is my first post as I have just gotten my Uno and while I do love it, I do think some updates like the one's I mentioned and others would be great.

Second that!!!! We can do for you what you are now paying people to do and we can do it better... at least better for ourselves maybe not for everyone. This way you could make everyone happy and by hosting an active community of sharing the modified code, you would have access to select all the best parts and incorporate into future official releases. There are conflicting views about what should be done as well as resources to make changes when you do decide what should be done.... we have paid for the hardware AND want to do the labor for free... LET US!

Hello everybody. I am a new Uno synth user and love it.
Many other asked, but even for me the best thing to add is a 64 step sequencer

It's my first synth and I love it! I would really like:

  • Tap for tempo input
  • Sequence chaining (like the drum's "song" feature)
  • Easier to find blank patch (I found "INIT PROG" in the KC Gilmore collection, but it wasn't easy to locate) since you need an initial or init patch like this to follow along with the Syntorial

It would be AWESOME to be able to enter a sequence and then have it keep playing but shift SCALE as the scale is entered. Not just a transpose as some have suggested but a chromatic transpose so that we could keep the rhythms we have programmed at home, but adjust them to be in scale with who ever or whatever song we happen to be jamming with.
