I see it went into beta almost three years ago.  I'm on 1.5.5.  Have most of you installed 1.5.8?  Is it working well?

Also wondering if this is final. It doesnít look to be available on DSI/Sequential OB-6 download page.

Will wait official release on their website before installing.

Thanks for the replies.  I haven't noticed any issues with 1.5.5 although the changelog mentions some kind of arp sync problem, I think.  I need to test it.  I'll wait for an official announcement about 1.5.8, but I'm starting to wonder if that will ever come.

OS 1.5.5 looks indeed quite stable, which is the reason why I wonít jump quickly to the 1.5.8. Not sure that it will ever be officially released.

You can always downgrade to 1.5.5 if you have any issues. Sequential support told me over the phone that it wonít cause any problems to downgrade.

FWIW, I'm still running 1.2.0 that I got with my unit when I bought it new, and it works perfectly fine. Never felt I needed to upgrade.

On the flip side, I upgraded as soon as I brought it home a few days ago (1.5.5 to 1.5.8). No noticeable issues as of yet and the process was easy to follow despite never having used sysex to update a synth before - yes Iím that new to hardware (Iím a software musician). But I fell in love with the OB-6 at first listen. How can you not??  :D

Yes I'm on 1.5.5 and always thought 1.5.8 was just the alternate tunings which I don't think I need at the moment so never bothered, but didn't realize there are a few more litle fixes, will have to check it out again
