Re: Mod Wheel Modulation Bug ?

Hi, I have a patch where I use the mod wheel to modulate the release time of the VCA enveloppe. When the mod wheel is used, the release time increases. It works but the behavior surprises me. In fact, when I engage the mod wheel, the release time is modified only for the notes played after that. So...

Re: Mod Wheel Modulation Bug ?

Yes, this is a general bug in the modulation section of the Envelopes. The note value being used is not updated to the current note until after the calculation is processed. This needs editing the DSP code, which we await.

Re: Saving preset in empty place OS 1.4.2

Yes, Jim checked it - working at v1.3. I’m not sure how critical this is, but possibly it can be returned in the next update.

Re: Saving preset in empty place OS 1.4.2

I'm not sure what you mean? Are you saying you are trying to save a preset to where it says Empty? You shouldn’t be able to do that. The best way to do it is to have INIT presets for all 128 locations, then you write over these. If it was possible in previous OS, maybe that was the bug :-) But I wil...

Re: OLED text displays

Unfortunately, there’s nothing at the moment that can change the larger graphics display to match both the color and the connectivity method.

Re: OLED text displays

So, an update - one owner has replaced all 5 text displays with an OLED display that costs about $20-30 each - so much cheaper than what I had first found! He says the only issue is that the display is not as “thick”, so there is some space between it and the plexiglas covers we use (which are norma...

Proper formatting and installation for the CF card

I just had an owner send me his CF card because he had downloaded the Complete Factory CF card data, formatted his card in MAC OS, and put the data on the card, only to find out the Solaris couldn’t read any Programs (Presets). I thought I had mentioned to him to make sure the card was formatted as ...
