The new standalone Lua firmware expands Electra’s horizons into new and exciting territories. After some tinkering with it, I have put together a simple 1-track 16-step sequencer. It is a very simple proof of concept that demonstrates how to build custom UIs on top of Electra’s hardware canvas making use of the hardware features like buttons, knobs, touch screen, timer, midi etc.
As @martin mentioned in the docs, the firmware supports just one simple component, which is a rectangle with a border and label. So, the sequencer UI is proudly 1980s . It simplified build so that I could focus mainly on using the features. Also, there is no ability to access/save to memory yet. Hence the name, Ephemera.
I made a simple video to walk through the UI: Electra One - Ephemera Sequencer for Standalone Lua Firmware - YouTube
Hoping to add more features like step auditions and multi-tracks soon. Eventual aim is to add more abilities like midi effects, per-step parameters, maybe generative stuff? .
