Here's an updated picture of the I/O.
Yes, the labels are correctly orientated, and it's final.
Cmon, bring it on! 🙂
Candid question: except for the array of step buttons, what in terms of features and functionalities would make your sequencer "better" than Pyramid ?
We don't like to compare to other gear since there's a lot of good and not so good stuff out there. We tried to address the major issues we've seen in other sequencers and controllers, plus adding ideas that are new to the game. We packed a TON of functionality and expandability is a given, we have exciting ideas for future updates and devices that will add value to it.
No offense meant here, but if you think that with such verbiage as "We tried to address the major issues we've seen in other sequencers and controllers, plus adding ideas that are new to the game", and keeping people "abreast" of OXI progress as far as getting stamped metal face plates and custom knobs ..., if you think with that you are going to convince people to buy your product, or generate a lasting buzz/interest, you might find yourself cruelly disappointed.

People who buy sequencers are generally quite knowledgeable about sequencers, they have painstakingly and rationally compared the different offerings. They are not like newbies looking for their first synth or drum machine .... And PR things like: "We packed a TON of functionality and expandability is a given", are just not going to cut it until and unless we see detailed specs, and frankly it borders on disrespect.

Maybe, fearing "copycats" you prefer not to disclose precisely the functionalities and features and specs of your product until it is ready and on the market. I can sort of understand that: this type of marketing strategy might satisfy OXI management. However it renders the usefulness and purpose of this whole thread and discussion (to me as a reader/poster, and probably to many others) quite ... let's say, negligible (being polite here ...).

Have you actually read the previous pages? It's not like they are being secretive about the features and specs of their sequencer. They are also publicly available right here:

https://oxiinstruments.com/product/

If that is not detailed enough, some further Googling would have given you these:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHAdHJ ... I3e7biuXYQ

If that's still not enough then join their Facebook group where features are actively being discussed or ask them here where as far as I can tell specific questions have always been answered so far.

But: since when is a manufacturer supposed to explain to you what makes his product better than that of a competitor? Do you know of any other sequencer manufacturers that explained to you what made their sequencer better than a Pyramid? What does "better" even mean? What you find better, I might find worse and vice versa.

PS: I am actually investigating both Pyramid and One as I'm in the market for a desktop-based sequencer and I find the openness of Oxi regarding their to-be product refreshing. How well it all translates to reality remains to be seen of course but for now the videos and Facebook discussions are adequately informative to me (and apparently also the many others who are actively participating in the FB group).

Which one is "better" is something I don't need a manufacturer to tell me and will decide for myself based upon "painstaking and rational comparison of the different offerings". ;)

Please do your research properly before making such blunt statements.

Thanks Skulptr for the detailed answer, you are spot on.

It’s unprofessional from a company to do direct comparisons. Wait for reviewers to do them or make your own mental map from all the info posted online, that is far from little at this point. I recommend to visit the thread in Elektronauts, it may give you a better idea of what we do, how we do it and why we are so proud.

Alternatively you can personally ask me any doubt you may have of the Oxi One features.

Hi everyone!
Here’s a demo of the Arranger // Song mode.
Let us know what you think.
There’s an easter egg in form of feature, if someone guesses it, we will reveal it :)

Arranger mode looks very useful!

What kind of resolution can we expect on the CV outs? And will we be able to do fine adjustments, so we can precisely modulate e.g. the sample start point on an Assimil8or? :hyper:

Due to the direct MIDI integration with the CV environment the resolution is the following:

Pitch has 8V/8Oct
Trig Envelopes amplitude (AD) have 5V/127
CCs have 8V/127
LFOs have 8V/255

Thanks! Any possibilities for further smoothing planned/implemented?

And if I understood correctly, steps in the sequencer have fine adjustment, so that timing can be fine-tuned.

CCs have smoothing, we don't see the need to add it anywhere else for now.
The smoothing is set to exponential, but we plan to add to the desktop app the option to choose which type of smoothing you want to have.

Time offset is 1/32 per step (if I'm not mistaken).
Edit: It's 1/40 per step :)

Nice. Really appreciate the open & fast communication as well.

I’ll be waiting for the early bird tickets. :) Good luck!
