Guys, I need your help. I'm planning on building a FV-1 pedal with the layout posted here. What I need to know is how do I put the program in the EEPROM? I mean, I know I need a usb compiler, but I read in some forum I need to compile the program in a certain format otherwise it won't work and I don't even know if SpinCAD is suited for the task. So I need all the basics to start this journey. I read the SPIN forum, but I still miss some piece. I know this is the right place to start, so please enlight me.
That's enlightening. I had some rough ideas on how the whole process would worked and now I know where to start. Now I have a new question. In my quest for knowledge, I found the eeprom could be able load more algorithms so it should be possible to switch from different algorithms on the same eeprom. Any ideas on how to do that? There should be a rotary encoder involved.
Depends on how many programs you want to access. With an ON-OFF-ON switch you can get 3 programs. With that and a ON-ON switch you can get 6. Or you can do something fancy if you want to get all 8. Besides the EEPROM programers you can also program it over anything that supports I2C. I've been programming mine with a Raspberry Pi.
Also make sure to checkout SpinCAD for creating programs.
