    Hi. I'm using SynthTool 2.40 and two TD-3, both on firmware 1.2.6.

    When I use the "dump" feature in SynthTool, then it properly exports 64 patterns (counts up to 64).

    When I use the "merge" feature afterwards to import the previously exported dump file to the second TD-3, then the "merge" counts up to 49, and then says that it was successful.

    So basically, what it imports via "merge" is all correct, but it's only 49 patterns, means 16 patterns of pattern bank 1, 2, and 3, and only the very first pattern of pattern bank 4.

    This is very easy to reproduce. Simply create a pattern in Pattern bank 4, pattern 8 for example, then dump the whole machine, and merge it to another one.

    I also tried with SynthTool 1.36 ... same results.

      Nigel67 Hi Andreas. I have just heard from the designers. this bug was fixed and is incorporated into the new synthtool app that was released about 21 hours ago. Many thanks

      • SynthTool with TD-3: "Merge" always only imports 49 patterns (instead of 64)
        graesserph Awesome! Tried it with SynthTool 2.4.1, and works like a charm. Thank you so much.
        Also great to see that you've incorporated the RD-6 in the SynthTool. So there's still hope for the RD-8 to get its place as well .
        In any way, I'm seriously impressed. It's great to see a community where you get "real" answers by people who obviously care. Thank you!

    I'm very new to synths, and the Odyssey is my first purchase and I have lots to learn.  I tried searching and didn't find anything related to my question.

    The Pulse Width sections for the two VCOs on my Odyssey don't seem to do anything for sound shaping.  No matter how much Width or MOD I give them nothing happens.  The LFO/ADSR switch under the MOD fader doesn't seem to have an effect, either.  I tried messing with these in conjunction with other settings (like the LFO frequency) and still no dice.

    My main thing now is just trying to figure out if there's a problem with my synth or not since neither Pulse Width section seems to work.

     

    Thanks for the help! :-)

      DavidKnighton Hi jhupka,
      The pulse width only affects the square wave oscillator. Make sure the square wave VCO is pushed up in the audio mixer so that you can hear the affects of the PWM.

        jhupka Thank you for the help, David. This answered my question, and the Pulse Width sliders are working. :-)

    Hiya,

    I recently picked up one of the expert sleepers floating ring cables and wanted to try out the CV in through the pedal jack.

    I tried sending CV from a clep diaz module with attentuation through Maths. It's plus minus 5 volts so should be safe. I set the foot pedal to expression and in mod matrix set expression to Osc 1 + 2 pitch at full range.
    I'm not hearing impact. I tried some other CV sources like 1v/octave from a shuttle control and simple LFO. Not able to get any change. I also tried setting foot pedal to footswitch and applying that in mod matrix.

    Do I need to "Calibrate" the footpedal input for CV? If i try to calibrate the numbers range is much much lower than would be for an expression pedal but it never finishes calibration and applies a new range. Is there more information on how to do this properly online anywhere?

      craigspeed Can anyone at Behringer help with this? I can't imagine I'm the only one whose tried to do this. I do think it's a great synth otherwise and I'd rather not return it..

    I recently purchased a CAT. I am used to finding a midi compatibility chart with any synth. What messages does the CAT respond to? I know it receives notes from a midi keyboard, what else? Where can I find this information? Thanks.

      JoeRivers96 Hi Kip - the CAT responds to MIDI note information only. All other communication is done via Sysex, which is also captured via the SynthTool. The latest version of this can be found on the link below:

      • What midi does the Cat respond to?
        KipChatterson So is there a midi implementation chart somewhere? You said above, note only. Can we send it pitch bend? What other controls are available via sysex? I have a bcr2000 that can send sysex, would like to use it with the cat. Thanks.

    I've been using synthtribe 2.4.9 to update the firmware on all my behringer gear.   Worked great on the Ms1, the RD8, the tb3, and the pro1.  My VC340 is "in dfu mode" and the app continually asks me to update the firmware.  When I click update, it says "update failed, please try again."  All the lights on the vocoder are on and no sound is coming out when keys are pressed.  I am using mac with the latest edition of Big Sur.  I have tried rebooting the computer, getting rid of all hubs and peripherals, with no luck.  I have submitted a ticket but I am concerned.  Anyone have any ideas?

      MisterTom Hey.. I had the same thing when I was trying to update my Cat synth module. I actually had SYNTHTRIBE 2.4.6, I then downloaded SYNTHTRIBE 2.5.0 and that is the newest version of SYNTHTRIBE. Then when prompted in that new SYNTHTRIBE software... I was able to install the firmware update to the new version for the Cat.

    I have a brand new Odyssey Synth. I'm not new to synthesizers. All notes get stuck on. I cannot find a way to rectify this. I would like to find a solution before exchanging it for a new one. Any ideas? I found an old post during a web search with someone having the same issue along with a solution. Of course when you click on the link it takes you to an old Behringer support page and says "Page Not Found"! Gee, Thanks!! Also, what's up with only QSGs (Quick Start Guides). Why aren't they're any advanced User Guides??? (Same with the MS-1 Synth!!). C'mon Behringer, help us out here!!

      JoeRivers96 Hi Jeff - thanks for reaching out! When you say the notes are stuck on, does the pitch change is you trigger different notes, yet the sound is constant? Does it seem that your ADSR envelope is ineffective? If so, it may me your VCA GAIN fader. I'd recommend setting this fairly low, as having this up increases the gain on your unit and causes a 'hold' like behaviour. Let me know if this is not the cause.
      • June 22, 2020
    • JeffPorrello
      JeffPorrello Hi Joe, thanks for trying to help. Yes, pitch changes when a new note is pressed. The ONLY sliders open are VCO 1 (1/2 way), VCF Freq (1/2 way), and VCA Gain (1/2 way). All notes stick regardless of where you position these basic sliders. The synth (as set above) is in its most basic form whatsoever for making any kind of sound, so this should NOT be happening. I don't know enough about MIDI to send an all notes off message or Sysex messages, but do know something’s up here.

      JoeRivers96 Hi Jeff, thanks for this. If possible please record a short video displaying the issue and submit a support case using the SUPPORT option so that we can look into this further for you.

      JeffPorrello Hi Joe! Pilot Error!! I did not realize there were two VCA sliders. I was using the one named "VCA GAIN" which was keeping any notes played continuing to play. The one immediately below it was the one I should have been using ( VOLTAGE CONTROLLED AMPLIFIER) all along, so my fault!!!

    Hello everyone, if you have a Behringer 2600 and you need a blank book to write down your patches I have created a patch book blank like the original ARP 2600 did. Feel free to use it. Enjoy ;)
