Re: MP3trigger volume

Also, the hardware has changed since you purchased your original unit. Specifically, an option was added to provide a true line-level output circuit with DC blocking caps and a reference to the board GND, making it compatible with grounded external equipment with line-level inputs. This option is no...

Re: MP3trigger volume

I assume you're playing the same files on both the old and new unit, and that it's not just the level of your mp3 file... What do you mean when you say "I am sending max volume to the unit"? How and what are you sending?

Re: MP3 Trigger and long trigger wire interference??

There two versions of firmware for the Tsunami - stereo and mono. The Configurator app supports both versions. See the download page. The former plays stereo files which can be directed to any of the 4 stereo pairs. The mono version plays mono files which can be directed to any of the 8 mono outputs.

Re: MP3 Trigger and long trigger wire interference??

Possibly, but you have to be very careful with how you connect the shield - it can also become an antenna. But it really depends on how tolerant you are with occasional false triggers. You might eliminate most but not all. Again, that's a really long run for a 5V digital signal without debouncing on...

Re: MP3 Trigger and long trigger wire interference??

If your MP3 Trigger is that new then it already has the pull-up. I suggest trying triggers 17 and 18 - they'll definitely be better, but will still trigger on significant noise, and 70 ft of wire is a bit antenna. Both the WAV Trigger and Tsunami have input debouncing, whereas the MP3 Trigger just l...

Re: MP3 Trigger and long trigger wire interference??

How old is your MP3 Trigger? The latest version (with the solder jumpers SJ2, SJ3 and SJ4 in the analog output section) has a pull-up resistor on the output of the multiplexer to help with the long wire issue. If you have an older version, there are posts around describing how to add the pull-up. An...

Re: WAV Trigger - how to auto play and loop upon power up

Assuming that you meant "Need track 1 to loop forever", just do the following. Make sure you have the most recent firmware. Using the Configurator app... For Trigger 1, change the type to "Level" and check the "Invert" option. Add/Update the trigger settings. For Triggers 15 and 16, change the Funct...

Re: Tsunami Super WAV Trigger- Setting the attack time with ini file.

Both attack and release are set using MIDI Controller messages. This is documented in the MIDI Implementation section of the User Guide.

Re: Tsunami Super WAV Trigger - Playing tracks on powerup

I'm guessing that perhaps you aren't running the latest firmware. See the release notes for version 1.04 on the download page; This issue was fixed for Tsunami. Grab the latest version, v1.08, and you should be good to go.

Re: Tsunami Super WAV Trigger - Playing tracks on powerup

With the trigger type set to "Level" and the "Invert" option checked, the trigger should be continuously active on power up. I know this works with the WAV Trigger, and thought that I made it work the same with Tsunami. I'll have to review the code to be sure.

Re: Tsunami Super WAV Trigger - Playing tracks on powerup

Also, I would advise installing (soldering) dual-row male headers in the trigger and audio pads. That way, you never have to solder wires to the board itself, and you can use small shunt jumpers to temporarily short individual triggers without soldering. Makes re-use much easier and more reliable.

Re: Tsunami Super WAV Trigger problem playing midi on all channels

Tsunami treats MIDI channels differently than does the WAV Trigger, and more like traditional MIDI gear. Tsunami can be set to only receive on one MIDI channel, or can be set to Poly so that it responds to all MIDI channels, but channels do not currently offset the track numbers by 128. This is done...

Re: wav trigger bank up and down not working

It appears from your init file above that you've set all your triggers to Level type. Have you tried leaving them as the default Edge type? At a minimum, triggers 14 an 15 (used to change the Trigger Bank) should be Edge type if they are connected to buttons. Are you confident that the firmware upda...
