VCMC And CV Thing Modules Upgraded

Befaco tells us that new 1.2 firmware for VCMC and CV Thing is available. Here's the details in their own words...

This new firmware is full of new features like polyphonic mode, labeling of each control, 14 bit CCs, save memory expanded to four slots and a great Web editor to configure the modules and create your own presets from your MIDI enabled browser!

A bunch of bugs have been fixed as well as lots of stability improvements and visuals of the menus.

The new code is shipping in the new units currently in production. The firmware can be easily upgraded as the bin files are available in our github. Also, source code is available for the brave to dive deeper in these machines!
