Hey Os, any idea when the update for the midi channel preferences update will be? Where user will be able to control all the cc of an lfo on 1 midi channel.

Super quick question - is it necessary to upgrade through each version, or is it possible just to skip to the latest? I'm still on 1.0

I am unable to implement the preset at startup function, maybe a video of this?
I have tried a number of different times following the instructions in the online manual and the FH-1 still doesn't start with correct preset (number 1 in this case).

Thanks.

Thanks so much, got it. I was missing the part about it being menu 3 on LEDs 1-8.

Hey OS,

Would you mind a quick explanation to this function?

For the Launchpads & Launch Control XL, and the LinnStrument, the FH-1 enters a device-specific mode. This setting forces the FH-1 to not do that, and treat the device as a generic one.

My FH-1 doesn't seem to recognize my Launch Control XL or enter a specific mode. I've installed 1.3 , I was hoping it would just jump into the cool sequencer set up from your video. Am I missing something, or is the Launch Control mode not out yet?

Does it not do the double flash of all the LEDs when the LCXL is plugged in?

For the sequencer as in the demo, you need to set up the LCXL with the attached config (in user slot 1).

Yes it does do that. But none of the knobs or faders do anything. Is that what it's supposed to do in device specific mode? Is the sequencer setup separate from the device specific mode? I'm a bit confused: if I have to configure the LCXL itself what's the advantage of it recognizing the device? Sorry if I'm being stupid.

Edit: Thanks for the config by the way, the sequencer is working nicely which is what I was after anyway.

Cool. The device-specific aspect of this is the visual feedback - that the FH-1 sends MIDI back to the controller to change the LEDs.

Not a firmware update per se, but I've added a little pdf quick reference guide for the FH-1 menus. You can download it right next to the firmware updates on the user manual web page.

maybe i should ask here. I grabbed a Novation Control XL to use with the FH-1 can you show me how to enable the proper user specific mode please?

How can one tell what firmware is current on the FH-1?
