Hi Folks,

Anyone confirm a graphics glitch when editing a stacked patch (in edit A+B mode)?

Not sure it really matters what you do, pick a basic waveform, copy it to layer B, edit both then tweak the VCA and or filter envelope. You should notice graphical glitches plus sluggish behaviour, sound is ok though. Once again in passthru mode here.

Cheers.

Module or Kbd? Cannot see any glitches or sluggish behaviour with my kbd according to your settings.

Apparently when all the additional feature requests have been implemented, I hope! :D

Hey hey everyone!
Can anyone confirm, that using linear FM, it APPEARS to fall back on exponential FM, when the modulator is a single-cycle wave, that is pushed to left or right wave? This happens, when it's done statically, so no moving wave-mod parameter.
I also have the feeling, that voice spread doesn't properly react to modulations. My experiment was using aux env to move the pan spread slowly over a note.
Now the well deserved compliments: the direct assign using env or LFO buttons is simply wonderful! So is the linear FM in general! It works like a treat and is loads of fun!!!
An addendum to the manual would be really nice listing the new parameters and perhaps containing a fully numbered list of the current global menu. But for now, I think I have found all extra parameters important for sound design and the workflow is simply marvellous! Chris you must be a monster (in the positive way)!

There is some weirdness with Local Control: Off and switching banks. Switching patches within a bank seems to work fine but if I switch banks the behaviour is a bit erratic. If I'm on bank 1 patch 12 I push bank 2 it stays on the same patch. If I push up it will now switch to patch 13 in bank 2. Similarly if I type in a number after switching banks.

To actually answer your question instead of plus 1'ing everything, I'd say this --

Is there anything in the current OS on your machine that is preventing you from working properly with it?
Is doing an upgrade a painful/slow process for you?

If the answers are "no", "yes" then stick with what you have until the official release comes out.

Is there anything in the new beta that you absolutely need? (see the release notes on the first page for details)
Is upgrading a simple and smooth process?

If your answers are "yes" and "yes", then upgrade to the latest beta and enjoy that now.

FWIW - there's nothing broken in the current beta that is working in your OS version (i.e. you are not retrograding any functionality)

In the anticipation of the new OS, I felt compelled to do this. I know you guys are cleverer than me, but whats the harm in sharing.

Anybody else have any weirdo glitches happen to them on this new OS? Sometimes on mine either decimate and amp attack start moving on their own and today the screen started going crazy and loud hum out of the output. I had no midi or usb connected for either. It happened once again and I've had it off since, kinda spooky
