    Hi,

    I found two isssues with the "Assign Random" funtion on the Crave.

    The first is that the number of levels used by this mode is one less than in e.g. ramp mode. If I have a 4 step pattern, only three different levels of CV are send to the assign output. I checked this with a scope. This als is true with other pattern lengths: a  length of 3 will produce two levels and a length of 8 will produce 7 levels etc.

    I *think* the number of levels shoud be equal to the number of steps as they are in e.g. ramp mode, right?

    The second issue is that sequences of length 9, 17 and 26 (and maybe more) produce repeating patters of the same length. With other sequence lengths the repeating is not there (or the cycle is much longer and so you do not notice it).

    I'm using firmware 1.1.2

    I'll upload two pictures: one is the assign output in random mode for a sequence of length 4. It shows 3 signal levels.

     

    The second is the levels produces by a sequence of length 9. You can see the repeating pattern.

     

    Any chanche these issues could be fixed with a firmware update?

     

    Thanks, Otto

    It'd be fun to have the 2600 respond to velocity (or bend, or aftertouch).  But the unit doesn't these things on any jack, so the only option is to patch in data from some kind of external device intercepting the MIDI data.  YUCK!  May I suggest a very simple firmware tweak?  Can you add a firmware parameter which states that, when in Mono mode only, the Upper Voice jack outputs as CV the value of one of the following:  (1) Note Velocity (2) Pitch Bend (perhaps positive and negative?) (3) Aftertouch or (4) an arbitary MIDI CC.  Note velocity and pitch bend are particularly useful here.  Obviously in Duo mode the Upper Voice jack has an important job; but in Mono mode it's useless and can be conscripted for this task.  This small change would greatly enhance the capabilities of the machine.

    I note that the slider #1 of each of the oscillators has much smaller range than slider #2, which in turn has much smaller range than slider #3.  That's fine and interesting, though I wonder if it is the same behavior as on the original 2600 (the original 2600 manual says nothing about different ranges).

    However I also note that, on my unit, slider #1 on easy oscillator is somewhat differently calibrated; and likewise each slider #2 is off of the others; and similarly (and especially) each slider #3.  Is there a way to calibrate these sliders to be properly consistent?  The accessible trimpots only calibrate the oscillators proper.

    Anyone know if i can find a TD-3 Synth Tool App that is compatible with high sierra 10.13 mac os?

    Support said the new Synthtribe 2.5.2 isn't compatible past catalina 10.14

      PedroRodrigues Hi mitmattchell please consider that using a OSX released in 2017 that Apple stated that does not provide support since the release of Big Sur might not be the best choice to implement the latest version of the Synthtribe 2.5.2 and therefore it may be advisable to update your OSX to avoid any issues. Thank you

    There is a problem with Deepmind12.

    If you switch to a different patch while playing sound, the sound may stay playing. If you keep playing it, the sound may stop in a few minutes, or it may not stop until you turn it off.

    The firmware of Deepmind12 has been upgraded to V1.1.2.

    I wish that Behringer will solve this problem with developing newer firmware.

    So I recently added a Behringer Poly D synthesizer to my rig and it's much quieter than my other keyboards to the point where I can't get it to cut through a mix without using a boost pedal. Is there a way to boost the keyboard's volume through the system settings or parameters on the back of the keyboard? I've read through the Manuel and it doesn't go in depth. 

    I'm also wondering if they sell beefier power supplies for these because the stock supply is very delicate and I'm worried about it holding up on the road. Any help is appreciated!

      NicJonesMT Hi EthanRupert.
      Could you please submit a tech support ticket by clicking on Support above. We can then go through some trouble shooting and advise you further. Please ensure that you confirm how all parameters on the Poly D are set, and any other devices that are connected.
      In most situations a video is extremely helpful as we can then visually and audibly assess whats going on. If you upload it to a file sharing platform (Google Drive/Dropbox/WeTransfer ETC) and then post a direct link to the video in your ticket, we can then download and attach to your case :)

      With regard to the powersupply, you could probably get a third party power cable that is a bit thicker, just ensure it is the correct voltage, amps and polarity and you should be fine :)

    I ordered one through Sweetwater and really like it. Got the cutoff put up a bit from 9khz to 15khz. VCOs are all tuned properly from the back, to correspond with front.

    However I’m having a very strange issue with the hold button. In basic mode with no fx or anything engaging...After pushing any notes, there is a faint sustain or hold of the note. I have API pres that have plenty of gain. So I ramped it up. Well, it showed up on my VU meters on my Rosetta. So I pushed hold on and off. The low sustained note went away! Pushed a note again, release, and there’s the very low last note I played. I put the arp on, and boom note disappears.

    In short, it seems any note I push with hold off, actually holds my last note on all VCOs, but very faint. VCOs are not lit during this issue. You probably wouldn’t hear it in a mix or notice at first. But with silence and headphones, it’s a wtf is going on moment. After testing its obvious something is engaging some kind of hold all the time. That only shuts off if you engage arp on then off, or hold on and off to go away.

    One user told me it’s possible VCA bleed happening. Which seems to be common with analog synths. Some need to be calibrated, if not done at factory. I’ve not messed with a VCA before. So I’m not sure if I’m turning it on the back till the noise bleed disappears. I just don’t want to effect anything else. As I can see tuning, and the Filter Cutoff on an EQ for basic calibration. Not so much with this. It’d really be going by ear.

    The ARP on, seems to gate the noise even when playing a single note and not sustaining. So that is the only place, it’s not showing up as an issue.

    Any other owners with this issue? Or experienced synth owners that would have an idea? Everything else with this synth is great!

    Edit: Also noticed when setting any of the 4 VCOs to Pule Width or PW. It’s gone until I turn up the Pulse Width knob. Then it comes back unless set to 0. So seems it’s bleeding into all wave forms. Unless it’s in ARP mode. No bleed in ARP mode on single notes not sustaining. So that part seems fine weirdly, and not effected. It’s mostly noticeable more on high notes, and different wave forms that are brighter...well it’s way more prevalent.

    I am getting no signal from oscillators 1-3. But the A-440 is loud and clear. The noise circuit also doesn't put out a signal. I've tried using the High and Low Z outputs, the headphone out, and the tiny 1/8" (CV?) audio out. None of them work. I've tried setting the MIDI channel to 1 or 2 using the dipswitches, it doesn't seem to matter. And the MIDI controller I'm using is able to function as an external MIDI controller for my DAW/VSTs. I even tried using two different 5-pin MIDI cables in case it was my controller/MIDI cables... I'm wondering if my Model D is dead?

    Hi all,

    I am patiently (sort of) waiting for an update on the PRO-800. In Jan they said released within a couple of months, but there has been nothing?

    Also what happened to the Ub-XA?

     

    Does anyone know anything?

     

    thanks

    Hello all, first post.

    I got an MS-1 for my birthday, and i've been plunking and plinking with it, and really having fun making weird noises and space sounds- i'm still figuring out step-recording and the arpeggio, and i have questions about that i'll ask later. I have a PreSonus audio interface that i'm connecting via usb to my macbook air, and i'm running Garageband (i know, i know) 10.1 to record soft synths and vocals, etc.

    I've recorded from the MS-1, me playing the notes and what i play is recorded as a live track into garageband. But one of the joys of the MS-1 is all the 80's sound effect robot bleeps and bloops it makes. i want to do little sequences or be able to record into garageband and QUANTIZE the notes, as i can't play a kraftwerk style run and have it sync perfectly by hand. I'm sure this is MIDI stuff. Back in the 80s i had a Roland Juno 106 and a sequencer and drum machine running through a little mixer, and it all made sense. in my 50's now, not so much. I can't figure it anymore, midi and all that. 

    The PreSonus interface has midi in and out, as does my MS-1 (and "thru")- so i'm trying to get my synth noises out of the MS-1 as midi data that i can then quantize and move around in garageband, OR i want to use the sequencer in the MS-1 for some short step-written ideas that will sync up with the tempo of the song i'm working on. The MS-1 also has an "ext clock in" port but no idea how that works either. I sound hopeless, and i've looked at LOTS of youtube stuff, and people using Logic seem to have it figured out, but i'm not financially able to to this yet. and i like garageband. 

    help! help! any help or direction is appreciated!

      wolfmeister You cant. Garageband doesn't support external MIDI - it can receive MIDI, thus allowing you to play a Garageband s/w instrument from a keyboard or midi drum pads etc, but that's it. You need to upgrade to Logic. Logic is VERY cheap for what you get but you don't need to worry about a massive learning curve, because by default Logic starts & runs in reduced non 'Advanced' mode and is almost the same as Garageband. You can then switch on the extra 'Advanced' features as you learn more (if required). Also, all your GB songs will open in Logic to continue work on them if required. Hope that helps.
