Looking forward to getting it built and working over the next week or so. Just thought I'd pop in and introduce myself and say hello.

When you Google "What is an 8-bit microprocessor" most of the top hits are wrong, deeply misguided. I'm shell-shocked! OK, so let's start with the correct definition: An 8-bit microprocessor is a single-chip CPU which performs arithmeJulz2015-01-16T21:37:08Zhttps://groups.google.com/d/topic/fignition/KQBinV9tCbgMIDI InterfaceHi guys, I had a thought, when I finish the upgrade to V1.1.0 of the firmware, I could make two changes to the software serial code. Firstly I could make the baud rate a variable instead of fixed ( we need two bytes for the rate and rate fraction). This would mean that the baud rate could be seChristoph CP2015-01-03T16:35:24Zhttps://groups.google.com/d/topic/fignition/bE1VEPTDJqwSpeech Synthesis?Hello, i have a question: is it possible to generate an 8 Bit Speech Synthesis Engine.

I looked around a *little* for a suitable replacement, but they're either not free, or plug-ins for other programs (like Photoshop) or not Mac OS X compatible.
