Music lovers from around the world, the team here at MOD are very pleased to announce the stable release of update 1.1.0 for your Duo, packed with new features & fixes! Check out some of the awesome new improvements we’ve been making:
- Bluetooth network support
Now you can interface with your Duo via a wireless connection using a Bluetooth 3.0 (or higher) USB stick. WIRELESS STUFF IS AWESOME!
Hold down the right knob of your Duo and you’ll now see a tuner appear on the right display. Great tone from your instruments starts with the instruments themselves, so let’s take care of them and keep them in tune. INSTRUMENTS THAT ARE IN TUNE SOUND AWESOME!
- Save & reset pedalboard directly on the Duo
Check the left display menu on your Duo and you’ll see the new ‘Current pedalboard’ option – no need to connect to your computer to make small adjustments anymore, and you can also reset the pedalboard to the previously saved state. LEAVING YOUR COMPUTER AT HOME IS AWESOME!
- Restore MIDI device connections
If you like to use a wide variety of different MIDI controllers & equipment (like I do), then you’ll be pleased to know that connections to MIDI devices are now saved even after devices are disconnected. Reconnecting the device will cause it to reappear in the web interface, and restore the connections it previously had so that you can swap between different MIDI devices easily. EASY THINGS ARE AWESOME!
- Control outputs for modguis
It’s now possible for plugins to send information for visual feedback from the Duo to the web interface. Currently only the AT-1 and Step Sequencer make use of this feature, but it will allow developers to produce more complex visual interfaces for plugins and let you know more of what’s going on behind the scenes. KNOWING THINGS IS AWESOME!
These are just a few of the awesome new features we wanted to highlight, but there are a whole load of other improvements. For the changelog and discussion about the update, please see this post on the MOD Forum The next time you open the MOD web interface you’ll receive an update notification, and the update process is simple to initiate.
That’s all for now, so from all of us on the MOD team, thank you for being part of the revolution in effects processing and please let us know if you have any problems. You’ll be hearing more from us soon, including news from our time at the Waves Vienna Music Hackday and in the meantime keep making music, keep loving life & keep enjoying your MOD Duo!
