Hey, Just got an earlier Meeblip - Full case, black, orange, but White "MEEBLIP", so I think it's the version before SE??

it's almost overwhelming looking at all the knowledge info, and wondering:

  1. How do I find MIDI implements for MY version, and what IS my firmware version???

  2. How do I get a new firmware, and can I backup the old firmware?

  3. How do I order a new overlay to match new firmware?

  4. Can I manage firmware versions, is there a database of different "firmware models" from diff. hackers?

  5. Exactly HOW cool are Peter & James for putting this whole unit together???

Maybe this will start a "Start Here" thread for N00Bs like me??? (PS - making music with synths for years, but this box is cool!)

Thanks!

    1. It's the original 1.0X version with that colour scheme.
    2. I can send you a replacement chip for $10, or you can update the firmware if you have an AVR programmer
    3. There are about a dozen overlays left, $15 each (the silver SE design without save/load/midi buttons)
    4. There are several versions of Meeblip on github with different features

    Oh, and the V1 synth didn't have MIDI control of the various knob parameters. That came later.
