Well, so far we still need devs to step up and actually do something with the code, that may take a while..
Chances are big such a dev will code functionality he/she needs instead of fulfilling someones wishlist ;)

There is a place for bugs and feature requests on github itself: https://github.com/waveidea/bs3x/issues/new
use the "feature request" tag on the right.

Yes, and first we need the config software source, too. Without this, I will not touch anything.

same way as previous files, info is on the waveidea website.
you need the "Bitstream 3X Firmware Upgrader V11" app
and a factory defaults reset afterwards.. Last time I did this was on OSX Snow Leopard ( 10.6.5 ), straight usb cable to pc


IIRC there's a bug in the mac config software, I could not get some things set up there, so I used the Windows XP config software.

Hi..

Are there any git instructions for this.. I tried git clone.. followed by the address.. but it wasn't any good.

Also are the sources for the config software going up as open source.. I would at least like to recompile for my distro... (Gentoo).. I've noticed the fedora binary requires a dated version of wxgtk libs. I'm a bit tired of having to dual boot on my laptop.. (I normally use my linux only workstation for music work).. and also the bug that makes it crash each time I save a config...

cheers

Allan

Any word on the source for the config software?

Do we have to use `Keil uVision 3`?
it's fucking expensive.

This is a quote straight from the guys at keil:
Quote:
CA51: $2,000
PK51: $3,295
PK51-1-Year Term: $1,318


I was digging around and found that there are some alternatives for doing 8051 development, and they are cross platform. :mrgreen:

Option 1) MCU 8051 IDE
Option 2) Eclipse IDE + SDCC (small device c compiler), and a plugin for Eclipse to use SDCC.
Option 3) SDCC + text editor of choice (Personally, i like Sublime Text)

Also, I think SDCC is what we're after... This came out of the sdcc user manual:
Quote:
SDCC (Small Device C Compiler) is free open source, retargettable, optimizing ANSI-C compiler suite by
Sandeep Dutta designed for 8 bit Microprocessors. The current version targets Intel MCS51 based Microprocessors
(8031, 8032, 8051, 8052, etc.), Dallas DS80C390 variants, Freescale (formerly Motorola) HC08 based (hc08,
s08), Zilog Z80 based MCUs (z80, z180, gbz80, Rabbit 2000/3000, Rabbit 3000A) and STMicroelectronics STM8.

@dmitriyK

the sources have been released on github, but that's about it.

also, the source for the config software is still m.i.a

I wasn't clear enough, sorry. I meant control software, because its bugs are killing me.

the control software just uses sysex.. You can write your own control software instead of waiting for a piece of legacy code.
