16-Feb-24 : AI Tools
We've been using a suite of AI tools to develop new and existing products, mostly to get a feel for how the coming wave of AI-based technology can be harnessed to build better instruments. Above is an enhanced version of a photo I took in 2007 of a ZEIT desktop unit using a poor quality, low-resolution digital camera.
I'm not sure what language that is but it is sure is pretty... Sort of...
19-Jan-24 : Decent Sampler
Our Decent Sampler project has been on the back-burner for years. I managed to find some time over the Christmas and New Year break to make some progress and we now have several sample libraries in development.
So far, so good.
19-Jan-24 : Paddle Boards
We've finally run out of the original i/o boards for ZEIT and ATEM sequencers, which means I finally have a good excuse to re-design them.
These boards have an interesting history. One day, I might write it all down. :)
December 2023 : Web Pages
We're updating the web site. This version has been re-designed from the ground up and should (hopefully) load on all modern browsers. If it doesn't then please let us know.
Similarly, we're updating the web site for our partner operation, Unreal Devices. That work isn't quite finished yet. It should be sorted in the next couple of days.
December 2023: Backup & Restore
With the installation of a new CPU board, ZEIT finally has a proper backup and restore utility. At the moment, these programs are stand-alone applications that you will be able to download from the IML web site and then load into the sequencer using the Arduino IDE. This isn't the ideal solution and we plan on embedding the same functionality within software release 02-10, which we hope to release before the New Year.
November 2023 : Zeit Power Boards
The re-designed power distribution boards for ZEIT arrived today. This version corrects a couple of minor issues that crept into version 01-00.
November 2023 ZEIT CPU Boards
Three more CPU boards for ZEIT & ATEM step sequencers. This small batch have just passed all of their file system tests and are ready to begin full testing.
