Arpeggiator Q
« on: August 15, 2019, 12:40:41 PM »
When playing the arpeggiator there is sometimes a short lag before the note starts. It is like the key doesn't trigger the note instantly. Is there any setting for this? So it always starts with the note when a key is pressed?

Could it be the Beat Sync setting?

Does it have Beat sync? I didn't know that. It is not in the manual. Maybe it is in the latest OS which I have installed. If so, can it be turned off?...

I see now it is in the Manual addendum 1.4. Thank you!

Actually Beat sync is turned off, and I still have this behaviour. I have OS 1.4.0.1. It would be great if someone could try this. It is most obvious if the tempo is set to a very low value.

Is it any particular preset it happens on? Does it happen the first time you start the arp for that preset or is it on 2nd time activation if you know what i mean?

Edit - there is a later version of the OS available but i donít know if that will fix something like this

It seems to be every patch, but for example P6 F5 BoneDryBass. I dont know what you mean first or second time.. I would say everytime. Doesnt matter if I turn off/on. I would be interested to know if it is a known bug, that has been fixed, before I download a new OS.

I can confirm the same happens for me. I've probably not noticed it before as I don't normally use a very slow BPM. I've also just realised that I'm on the same OS as you, I was sure I'd put the latest on but I haven't. I'm going to install the latest now on mine because I always like to be up to date :)

OK I've updated mine to the latest OS and it seems to have cured that problem :)

At first I thought it hadn't but then I realised that after the update, Beat Sync had been set to 'On' so I turned it off and then remembered to do a Reset Globals as well.

Great to hear that! Thanks! Sounds like I'll have to update the OS again. What is "Reset globals"?

One of the Global options is 'Reset Globals' and it advises to do this every time you update the OS (after you've done the update). This will reset things like Pot Mode etc so make sure you know what settings you have at the moment in Globals before doing it. I know I prefer my Pot Mode to be Pass Thru and it always sets it to Jump after a Reset Globals.
