I was in the wrong impression the orientation of the Dotty buttons didn’t really matter. I did place them all in the same orientation, didn’t mix it up but didn’t check also. Later found out I was lucky on most of the Dotty’s I build.
The buttons are read by a 4051 chips 8 buttons at a time I call them rows. All four rows worked most of the time. But one build had a problem with row three. When installed in one way the buttons Dotty stop recording steps. I rotated the buttons and Dotty worked again.
Thought it was strange never had it before on the previous versions, put it aside as a glitch to sort out. Then a beta tester reported the same. Now I had to dive into this problem and fix it.

I recently got myself a Mac mini. Didn’t want the noise of a big machine running next to me. The Mac works great for most stuff, posting to the website browsing forums and doing some work from home.
But then came the day I wanted to use a ST-Link and program a blue-pill.

The Hagiwo Quantizers are back in stock. The module is available with a black FR4 panel or aluminium. Also new panels for the NanoGris now with black aluminium option. Pictures will be added/updated soon.
Today I started organizing the shop a bit more. Still not done, lots of work. The products have options to choose from now. Would like too add photo switching also but that would be a little bit more work.
The New Nanogris version is also added to the shop. I’m out of Quantizers but no worries these are ordered and underway.
Today I finished building the new boards and testing the results. The new boards function as they should. What has changed since the last versions.
0.03 Was the first version that was released to the public. Since then a few things have changed.

The new boards arrived today. Therefor all NanoGris boards and panels are for sale. These boards all function but have been updated for minor issues like footprint errors. Hopefully testing the new boards won’t introduce any errors and be in the shop this week or so.
there are times you do things with the best intentions and still make a mistake. The NanoGrids module is originally by Mutable Instruments. The schematics are released under cc-by-sa-3.0 license on github. This makes these files open to the public to use.
Mutable Instruments is very kind to do so and ask for little in return. Naming your clone module is one of those little things.
from GitHub: We do not recommend you to keep the original name of the Mutable Instruments module for your derivative works.
I did not honor that request fully. I did not read it when building NanoGrids. It’s based of there Grids module. So I hope to make my mistake right again. I renamed the module to NanoGris
Today I released new firmware for the LittleBen on Github. If you have any problems running or installing it please let me know. You can find the update at:
The new firmware is mainly the same as before but more indication of LittleBens state.
- if it’s playing the BMP will scroll.
- If it’s in pause BPM will stay on and does not scroll.
- If LittleBen is stopped. The screen will go dark.
Adjustments can still be made at any state.
