Since it doesn't have manual, firmware upgrade, video I crazy?

I checked Vcoadsr's manual which is fantastic. So I figured most.

1. Mine says 1.8.1. Is this the newest firmware?

2. I tried to clear or default graph(or lfo or env.) using the method described above and didn't work for me. Is there a way to clear or back to default?

3. It still keeps saving. Has this been fixed(?)?

Big thanks!!!!!
"fixed" - pretty sure the autosave is by design.

1.8.1 is the final firmware

as far as i know there's no way to reset to default. but honeslty i just change the waveform shape all teh time anyways and never start from scratch. it's easy to work quickly with it once you get to know and it didn't take long to get to know.

macromachines no longer exists as a company so what you have is its final form.

it's a really great module even as it is. i use the shit out of it and i have nothing else that does what it does even with O_c and control forge.

the different modes of the omnimod are great even though i really only use 2 of them. trigger mode and tempo sync. it tempo syncs perfectly every time. i'ts rock solid.

I've been thinking about picking one of these up with a mind to use it for song-length modulation duties, essentially like 4 automation lanes from a DAW. Can anyone speak to how well suited it is to that application? In Tempo mode, what's the slowest BPM you can get? How far down can you divide the clock? Can a channel take 5-10+ mins? How about Phase mode and a super slow ramp LFO?

Found a bug (upward slew at 9 is super buggy), but that's ok. I tested with the SDS Digital Melisma which sends Select Bus messages and it seems this thing can only save 16 spots on the Select Bus. The Melisma allows up to 64 and setting 17 goes back to 1 on the Omnimod. I guess 64 shapes was 16 slots x 4 envelopes? Ha!

Love how low the envelopes can go. Currently have this clocked at 4bpm and divided by 16. That's super slow. Hope that answers the question.

I haven't managed to control the WMD SSM via the Select Bus. Doesn't seem to respond, and I don't know why.
