  • Sorry about your experience - can you give more details of your system (what kind of Mac, the exact OS version), including whether you using a third party audio interface, or just the built-in audio? Re: refund, I'm happy to do that if that's the…
    in App Crashes Comment by dnigrin October 2
  • Re: suggested DAW - really anything that outputs MIDI files will suffice! Re: your 2nd question - not really sure of the answer, but know that DSX currently does NOT encode any patch information on Track 0, it was one of the things that got left ou…
  • Not currently (just the percussive sounds that you can see in the list currently), but good suggestion for the future, will keep it in mind!

  • The number displayed is a calculated number - and because of minute timing differences between MIDI clock pulses, sometimes the rounding of the calculated value changes up or down slightly. As JesusChris says, the audio should not be affected.
  • Assuming you've done these things, if you can let me know what device and/or app you're using, I can try to reproduce and/or do some research... For me, using something like Ableton Live as clock start source, it works correctly...
  • Forgive me for asking, but are you certain that you have the "MIDI" choice selected in the Clock section of the app, and that in that section you have selected the correct MIDI clock generating application or device? Some people get confused with t…
  • Hi Malte - thanks for the feedback. I will re-look at the MIDI sync code to see if there's anything that can be done with respect to stability. But I have a question re: what you mean when you say "start when it receives a MIDI clock in" - it's al…

  • Sure, that's definitely a possibility too....
  • I've not had this particular problem, but I've got to think it something along the lines of what you've tried with the Deoxit - must be a slider whose connection is flaky, and it's sending values each time it "reconnects." Is it always values from …
  • Not within the app, sorry.
  • Apologies for the long delay - I finally had a chance to look at and decode the files you sent Peter. Thank you, they were helpful. The bottom line is that I realized that I didn't build DSX Hack in a way that supports polyphonic MIDI files! This…
  • The different preset types is a good idea, I will look into whether I can do it for a future version... Re scale types - there's 31 scale types, and those are scaled (no pun intended) to fit into 0-127. So it changes roughly every 4: 0-4 Major 5-…
  • Perfect, thanks Peter - I received the dumps. Won't have time to look till probably the weekend, but will report back to you. And cool on the Track 0 stuff, glad you got it sorted!
  • Are you sure that you have Track 0 set to ON on the SELECT PLAY TRKS page? Please send the dump to dan@defectiverecords.com . The sequence should be as simple as possible, ideally like just two notes held down at the same time.
  • Hi Peter, I don't have the ability to test against an OBxx synth, as I don't own one. With regards to the tempo being written to Track 0, in my experience there are times where for some reason when loading from cassette, the tempo information is…
  • Thanks for the update, and sorry it didn't work.....
  • Sorry for what you're experiencing, keep me posted of how you make out. If I think of anything else in the meantime I will also report back here.
  • I had to go look at the code again, it's been so long since it was written. Yes, the Klee is programmed to start playing immediately - and no there's currently no ability to force it back to Step 1 (e.g. a "rewind" function). I'll put that on the …
  • This may be a problem with just how MIDI Beat Clock works. There's no way that Klee can immediately lock onto timing information, because it relies on the difference between adjacent Beat Clock pulses to determine the BPM. That's why in the Klee m…
  • Re: solder lugs - can't you just limit the Mouser search to "through hole"?
  • As I said above, I've not had to do this on mine, but visually these seem like very standard tactile switches. Have you looked on Mouser or similar? Take a look: mouser.com/Electromechanical/Switches/Tactile-Switches/_/N-5g2m
  • Thanks for the nice words... And yes, I am frequently slow, but still do have updates planned for the other ones too... Happy Holidays to you too!
  • First adjust the trimmer that adjusts the octave range - for each octave jump, you should see a 1 volt increase. Then adjust the offset trimmer so that C's fall on 0, 1, 2, 3, etc.. volts. You may need to repeat the above process iteratively to ge…
  • Re: the trimmers - I used a digital voltmeter (nothing fancy), and measured voltages when programming specific notes (a series of "C"s). Each octave should bring you up 1 volt, with the bottom C at 0 volts.
  • You know what - I never really noticed before - mine has the same punch outs now that I look!
  • No idea re: whether your model would be unsupported (never heard of one with punch outs for MIDI?), but my guess would be that if it's using v3.x software, it should work fine. Again, try the demo first to be sure. Re: calibration - you probably d…
  • Yes - you can always convert a track from CV to Obi or vice-versa on the DSX itself.
  • Best thing to do is try the demo version to be sure it does what you hope to do... It's a crippled version in that it doesn't allow Merges and only 4 notes on one Track, but it will let you see if the workflow you're looking for is supported.
  • Yes - you can specify whether or not the note information is sent out to the CV outputs, or to the connected Oberheim synth (and as noted above, the most recent version allows this to be done on a per-Track basis, as opposed to globally in the origi…
