The little PCB with channel and record buttons? Is that supported on this board?

The Four Banger firmware still contains references to the button module. However, I've never tested it. These references have been removed from the OctoBanger firmware. The OctoBanger is not a button banger. It must be programmed using the PC-based OctoBanger application.

Thanks,

Have you tried recording with your keyboard?
You can click the red record button (background turns green).

Then you can use the keyboard of your PC (number buttons, 1, 2, 3...) to record.
Start/stop the recording by pressing the space bar.

If you want to connect your prop and watch it react in real-time, you can do that too, just click the real-time button once the controller is connected.

Lastly, if you don't want to accidentally overlay a channel's data while recording, just double-click that column in the panel to the left of the timeline. The channel's background will become speckled- that means the channel is locked from editing.

The reason I got rid of the old button board was because hardly anyone used it. Many that did ended up with a bunch of spaghetti wiring that picked up interference, and likely caused reset issues and the like. After a while I just decided to punt and remove it.

Try it out, I don't see how someone couldn't program this way and do everything they did with the old button board. The approach is a little different, but the net result is very similar.

I looked through the accompanied files in the octobanger downloaded files, but didn't see a detail list of parts or wiring diagram as with the four banger...my question being, with the new firmware for octobanger am i able to have 8 relay outputs from an arduino uno? or am i only able to achieve 8 outputs with a nano? asking as im only experienced (and have a stockpile) of Unos.

thanks!

The OctoBanger supports two "pin mappings",
Default_TTL - Output Pins D2, D3, ..., D9
Shield - Output Pins D7, D6, D5, D4, D8, D9, D10 and D11
The "Shield" pin mapping is meant to be used with a $2.75 4-channel 3 Amp relay shield,

The relay shield uses output pins D7, D6, D5 and D4.
