    Hi everyone! 
    so just wanna say I really love the poly D! The tones that can come out of this beauty is insane!

    The only problem I have is there's a couples of keys (A2,A#2,B2) that are making a weird sticky sound when i press them a bit harder, like a physical sticking plastic sound! So i thought oh maybe i got a bad unit so I ordered a second one, which to my dismay, does the same thing but just on different keys this time. 

    it doesn't affect the sound in anyway but at a 1000$ CAD I would have liked to see a better quality control!

    Im hesitating about my next move, do I send them back to amazon and hope that the third one is gonna be ok? Is it worth it or they all do that?

      NicJonesMT Hi Acabrecords.
      Is this happening just on these specific keys or on all?
      There is a small rubber bump stop underneath the keys with an air pocket in. If you push the keys with some force it causes the pop noise, as the air is released.
      Can you please click support at the top of the page, and provide a short video of the noise you are getting. From there we can then try to determine if it is the bump stop or something else that you are getting.

    Playing consecutive notes will lose certain notes. I used to do this a lot, but it never happened and I was very impressed by it. Also I remember some users complaining about Wasp not being able to accurately handle such consecutive notes, not the  td3 /cat PRO1 . I think this is a new problem that has only recently appeared, so why should it create new problems for no reason.

     

    Now, consecutive notes must be kept at a certain distance to be processed correctly, which was not the case before.

    Is this Normal?  For the drone to be a solid beep? I can't imagine...

    I just got my neutron about a few weeks ago and while playing with it and VCV rack, suddenly bugged and stayed like in the video, my guess is something is wrong with the usb midi in because neither the VCOS or LFO were responding but everything else was. When I power it on again its back to normal but after a while it crashes again.. Has anyone been here or have any guess, heelp!

    Hi,

    I've noticed that the decay does not behave as expected when setting the decay curve to +50% (255). At the end of the decay period there is an extra hump right before the envelope enters the sustain phase. Can someone else confirm this? Is it a bug or is it just my DeepMind 12 that is acting up?

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create a default program
    2. Set VCA sustain to 0
    3. Set VCA decay curve to 50% (255)
    4. Play a note and let it decay fully.

    I've attached an audio example.

    My Neutron is behaving quite strangely. When I plug something in to the Att2 Out it changes the sound quite a bit. It's like it's changing the Pulse Width. If I then connect the same or a different patchcable to the Att1 In it changes even more. It's like it turns down the PW2 from 2 o clock to 8 o clock.

    I can turn it by hand, but it seems like unintentional behavior and sometimes it changes my sound quite drastically and when you have a complicated patch it can be quite tricky to find out why your synth is suddenly making almost no sound even though you just routed something to the Attenuators that are turned all the way down. You would expect to change at all untill you start turning the Attenuators.

    I added a video to demonstrate what's happening/ I would really appreciate it if somebody that owns a Neutron can try doing what I did here and let me know if this is how they all are of mine is somehow malfunctioning.

    I just updated from Firmware 1.0 to 2.02 and it didn't change anything by the way.

      Yes, that's normal for Neutron.


      ATT2 Out is Normalled to both ATT1 In and Pulse Width in.

      When you insert a cable, ATT2 is no longer connnected to ATT1 In and Pulse Width, but ATT1 In and Pulse Width In (both oscillators) are still connected together.

      Technically (and this point can be safely ignored) the output from ATT2 was providing an effective ground and preventing ATT1 In and Pulse Width from interacting.

      Anyway, connecting inputs together produces "unpredictable results", as you discovered.
      Also the pots for pulse width are providing what Behringer claim is a "useful" DC offset to the input of ATT1

      Behringer advised me not to use ATT2 Out when needing reliable pulse width! They didn't supply a workaround.

      The normalling of ATT2 OUT to ATT 1In is of course not only a cause of issues, it's also somewaht useless. You need to patch the connection anyway in order to cancel the normalisation to Pulse Width.


      Your workaround is to patch some 0V voltage from the patchbay to the PW in socket. SLEW Out does the trick
