OS 1.7.6

Hello,

I noticed that the newest OS version is 1.7.6 from oberheimís OB6 web site. Does anyone have any info on what has changed since 1.7.4?

Thanks in advance!

I saw the new version and installing it now.  No explanation about what is new.  Any ideas?

+1   Don't want to blindly go through the update process.  Is there any info on what is included in this release, somewhere?

Thanks

The 1.7.6 update has minor changes made for our production team which do not affect the operation of the instrument. It is functionally the same as the previous OS.

If anyone runs into issues after the update, please reach out to support@sequential.com and we can help you out!

I just noticed 1.7.6 has been replaced with 1.7.4.
What's going on?

Just conjecture on my part, but I think when a firmware update comes out that has no ďfunctionalĒ changes but is for production, itís because they made a hardware revision (component change) due to parts availability/cost and updated the firmware to be compatible with the component change.  But in this case, itís causing issues when updating synths with the original design/component in it.  Thus, if you have a OB-6 with older firmware, donít update it to 1.7.6.  If you buy a new one that has 1.7.6 already on board, itís probably got whatever component/design change that necessitated the firmware change.

My new OB6 came with version 1.7.6 and there are some issues such as LFO and XMOD bleeding on filter destinations, which I described in another post.

My question is if someone official here on the form can confirm, that downgrading the unit would be safe to try? Iím waiting for an answer on a support ticket for some days now and would like to investigate if this might be a firmware issue.

I understand version 1.7.6 might be necessary for new built units like mine, but maybe itís not and it solved my problem, so I hope to get some clarity here.

Thanks and regards,
Dennis
