I installed the firmware update, but I still hear slew. I scoped the output voltage again to see the difference. Here is a capture of a 2V output step from before the update:



Here it is after the update:



Try to ignore the vertical bars. The time scale is the same for both captures. The new version definitely gets "most of the way there" faster, but the time it takes to fully settle at the target pitch looks about the same. It sounds less annoying than I remember it being before the update.

I guess we have to assume this is the best they could do given the limitations of the hardware...

I wonder how different the amount of money they collected on kickstarter would be if they had shown those pitch cv scope shots in the beginning...

I bet it's really expensive hardware that outputs non-slewed CV.

I seriously doubt that... I'm curious what DAC and op amp they are using to produce that shitty of a slew... confused

I'm too noob to feel understanding from an oscillo reading tho. Any chance to get an audio demo? I keep thinking perhaps if it's slight enough I could live with it as a minor limitation... I dunno

Pretty lame, I was looking forward to picking one of these up. Hopefully it gets sorted at some point.

I've been using it with my iPad while traveling. Pretty decent for that. VERY disappointed with the CV slew. I could have purchased a much less expensive iPad keyboard.

Have any of the owners contacted KMI support about the 'fix'?

I was looking to buy one to use for ,iPad and laptop, and principally for CV ... so very disappointed re the slew.

a couple of questions :

is the slew time/shape identical on all three CV outs ?

with the new 'gets most of the way there quicker' update, if you put a quantizer on the CV from the Qunexus, is the slew shape 'slow' enough that you hear it it go through other note(s) ? (unfortunately I am guessing the answer is yes based on the oscilloscope) .. but could a partial workaround ( for sequencing applications) be using a triggered quantizer, and delaying the trigger just enough to let the slew go by ? - thus replacing slew by latency ( which can then be adjusted for, in most sequencer programs and some hardware)

jumping through hoops for sure, but for some applications could maybe be a workaround ?

I am not an owner of QuNexus, but I asked KMI support nevertheless if the slew can be reduced further. The answer was that they doubt it will get any faster.

As I am planning to use the QuNexus as a MIDI controller only, I am still planning on getting one (once it will become available here in Germany).

Please, can somebody be so kind and post two audio examples with the latested firmware, one of alternating 1 octave playing, and another one with alternating 2 octave playing?

This would be helpful. I mainly want one for CV only uses so if it sounds like zombie then it's a no go for me. Create Digital Music says they plan to do a follow up review with Eurorack/MS-20 mini equipment.
