Download the Dreadbox & Polyend Medusa synth firmware

The Medusa Tool software is introducing a more convenient way of flashing your unit and giving you the ability to dump and loading the presets.

Changelog:

v1.1
Updates
- The Live recording mode is now enabled.
- Redesigned initial and calibration functions.
- Edit the step values while the sequencer is running.
- The Grid MPE functionality is now enabled for controlling external gear.
- The Grid pads are now velocity sensitive (with three different velocity curves to choose from - soft, medium and hard).
- New MIDI menu (full bilateral MIDI input/output implementation - including transport, clock, CC communicates & MIDI channels).
- MIDI channel per voice option. Control, play and sequence each of Medusa's voices on a separate MIDI channel form 1 to 6.
- You can now transpose your sequences while they're running by pressing and holding the hold button and indicating the root note on the pads.
- Two new Grid layouts including the "guitar" layout which resembles a classic guitar tune.
- Shortcuts for targeting the ENV to LFO and LFO to LFO rate, wave and amount.
- Notes and Chords are being transposed in a chosen musical scale.
- Note sustain mode when the Hold button is lit (great for drones).
- The separate OSC tunings in P1 and P2 modes are now unlocked.

Fixes
- Few minor MIDI bugs fixed.
- Repaired scale generator.
- Fixed menu display bugs.
- The highest note on the Grid isn't repeated anymore, just muted.
- X, Y & Z targets are now modulated by the last pressed pad only.
- The AMP as an X, Y & Z pad modulation target in the P1 and P2 modes is now functional (this is dependent from the AMP ENV Amount knob position).
- The backlit of the pads refresh rate while changing the length, scale and root note was increased.
- The FM OSC 1 & 2 knob position was influencing the initial calibration, not anymore.
- The LFO rate wasn't in sync with the external clock (both USB and DIN), fixed.
- The MIDI output was sending out notes two octaves lower, fixed.
- Improved incoming MIDI clock stability.
- Changed filter resonance behaviour.
- Improved startup procedure.
- Better preset loading procedure.
- Back button works in Config now.

v1.0.2
Fixes

v1.0.1
Updates
- A new method of assigning the ENV & LFO targets. Hold the ENV or LFO button and nudge the synth parameter you want to target.

- Revised digital oscillators waveforms.

Fixes
- Improved parameter display in certain menus.
