Wahoo Version 1.2.0 (pre-release testing)

Postby james » Wed Dec 11, 2013 11:54 am

Soon, we will be releasing an update for the Wahoo, version 1.2.0. As most of the changes added have been requested by existing users, we're making this available for pre-release testing before making a final release. If the new features interest you, please take a look and check that everything is working as you'd like it to (at this stage, we can probably only fix bugs, not make major changes).

The current beta versions of the editor and firmware can be found here:

Updated Wahoo firmware

Here is a list of the changes in this version.

Envelope mode

() Improved envelope tracker so that it can track signal decays more quickly without compromising the smoothness of the tracking (in typical envelope filters as the decay speed is made faster, the envelope will "wobble" across the envelope peaks).

() Added steps to the envelope, so you now have the choice of the traditional smooth sweeps, or quantised sweeps.

() Envelope mode has been "pedalised" to allow dynamic variation of the envelope parameters. When pedal control is enabled, you get a hi and lo option on each parameter, allowing the envelope filter to morph between various settings giving you much more dynamic control of the envelope filter sound.

LFO Mode

() When the effect is enabled, the LFO phase is now reset (unless sync'd to MIDI). This ensures the sound starts from the same point each time you enable the effect; particularly useful when slow LFOs are being used.

() LFO mode has been extended to allow pedal control of the division (an often requested feature). When enabled, you can select a hi and lo div and the LFO will seamlessly switch between these as you move the pedal.

MIDI configuration

() More MIDI options (and a new MIDI tab on the editor). This lets you select channels and controllers -- previously these were fixed, or in the case of the remote footpedal, not implemented. These new settings are only available using the editor, not on the Wahoo itself.

Other features/improvements

() Added an option to display the pedal position on the 7-seg display. When enabled, it will show "=00" to "=99" to indicate the pedal position. This is useful if you like to "cock" the wah and have it in the correct position before enabling the effect. So you can see where the pedal is and get to the same sound each time. (Currently this isn't accessible on the editor, but is available on the Wahoo through the custom setting "PoS").

() Improvements to how the knobs are handled to make this more robust against hardware glitches when they are turned quickly (all encoders like this can be glitchy, so the firmware tries to avoid this. This update adds more countermeasures to improve the user experience).
