firmware 4.17 issues

Post by ignatius » Sun Sep 13, 2020 10:16 pm

4.17 is buggy as hell for me. doesn't really work. crashes the module. also, doesn't allow paging through parameters. the Z knob still works but pressing it doesn't page through the parameters.

Could you expand on what crashes and when?

Some algorithms use Z for something else e.g. reverbs use it as freeze. You can still select parameters with S.

i was exploring the granular pitchshifter and only had access to the first parameter. couldn't page through the other parameters. i tried to change algorithms and it freaked out and would jump around in the algorithm list as i turned the knob. then all the lights in the display got brighter and it did a kind of pulsing thing and freezed up. I rebooted and tried again but got same results.

i put v4.16 back on it and it now works as it should.

edit: i should add that i did reinstall v4.17 thinking maybe something went wrong w/the install and wiping it and starting again would help but it didn't.

4.17 adds the freeze function to the granular pitch shifter, so you'll have to change parameters with S.

sucess this time! i think i maybe was a little impatient with the previous install and was jumping around trying to get through parameters and that caused some freaking out of the module. seems fine now that I go slower through accessing the parameters via the S knob.

tldr - user error ;)
