The expander is brilliant!! Should've just been included, IMHO.
Don't buy without the expander!

Too hot here to mess with it much, but it sounds fantastic! I think it sounds very different from any of the Yamaha 4-op FM synths, as it sounds cleaner and of higher resolution. The ALM Akemie's sounds VERY different, both are great, and nice together.

Loads of people put up videos because of generosity, not for $$. So go right ahead, I know many people would appreciate it!

Yes, good patch videos are always appreciated! We’ve got a youtube playlist we use on our site that shops also use on their web stores. We’ll be adding any cool stuff there!

Hi folks,

Some users noticed a bug that we missed during development. We think we've got a fix for the issue. Read up on the issue and find the new firmware on our forums (no login necessary):

OK - I managed to update - requires some tech know how but it worked. A couple of thoughts on the process - it needs to be made simpler - that was harder than it needs to be.

Also - the whole booting up holding 2 buttons, releasing one slightly earlier than the other is awkward especially when you also have to power up your system at the same time. Finally if you have Algo connected, I recommend disconnecting it as there's simply no way you can reach the buttons with such a short ribbon cable attaching Algo to the Quad Op.

Good news now :tu: the update seems to have worked. I've powered up the Quad Op and I'm not getting the glitching I was previously getting. It's early days but I hope this fix is what does the trick for me.

Now - back to making crazy FM sounds. :bananaguitar:

Glad to hear it worked out! For other who have not yet tried—we’re working on simplifying the update process as much as possible.

Here's a hopefully simplified update package for you. We need help testing on Windows as I'm a Mac user and I'm on the road! Please give it a try and let me know if it worked for you and which OS you use!

Did you need to recalibrate? We’ve received a report that the firmware update causes some kind of problem with the calibration mechanism for the ratio X CVs when an operator is used in free mode. We’re working on a verification / resolution.
