I’m currently working on the first Rainmaker Tutorial video. I’m planning to at least do two, with the first focused on the delay section, and the second on the comb, routing/config, and meters/gain sections.
If there’s anything specifically that you would like me to cover I’d love to hear your suggestions. It may be too late to make it into the first video, but I can certainly include it in the second.
Also, if you have any suggestions for future videos I’d be happy to hear them.
Probably something for a later tutorial, but I’d be interested in some patches / examples of modal synthesis being done with the rainmaker. The manual mentions the filters capability to self-oscillate and says that this enables modal synthesis, but i think it would be helpful to show an actual application of that.
Is 1.04 not out yet? I recently purchased a Rainmaker that’s on 1.02. I successfully updated the display to 1.04 using the firmware updater over at https://intellijel.com/firmware-updates/ but then loaded up the FPGA updater in VirtualBox (I’m on OS X) and it doesn’t seem to give me much useful info after it loads the Quartus programs. There doesn’t appear to be a guide to using that updater so I am not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if 1.04 isn’t packaged in there yet.
