I'm sure this is not a hardware fault - it works correctly most of the time and the problem occurs literally once or twice in a week (if at all) and I use the synth everyday for minimum an hour. There must be something in the firmware that under certain conditions causes random knobs to lose tracking at the lowest value. It might be something related to changing presets I suspect, but I'm not sure.
For example, I work on a patch, then change to a different patch, start programming and discover that for instance EG attack knob doesn't catch with the value in the passthrough mode (I always work in passthrough). I bring that EG on screen and nudge attack to say 5, then turn the offending attack knob and it works as it should. It can happen to any of the potentiometers, there's no pattern which knobs do it most often. Also, a power-cycle sorts the problem out, but nudging the parameter with an encoder over the screen is quicker.
I got really tired of it and decided I'm not putting up with it anymore. I'll pick up an alternative synth, a simple one without complex software controlling it. Just wanted to make some music instead of futzing around and thinking what's wrong and when the update will come.

Yup, I'm sorry - it was my error not the synth's fault.

When the sequencer is active and the screen is not on the sequencer screen, pressing the sequencer button will bring up the sequencer screen and will not turn the sequencer off. Once the sequencer screen is active, pressing the sequencer button will turn it off.
That's fine but my problem is differen't - I turn off track 1 so it doesn't control the notes. I sequence a filter movement on track 2, I sequence resonance movement on track 3. When sequencer trigger mode is "sequencer" and not running, I play the keyboard - legato and glide work - low key priority (I always work in low key priority).
I press the sequencer activation button - seqencer trigger mode - key, env retrigger off, all steps light up - legato and glide don't work properly. I press seqencer activate button - all steps are dim - when I play on the keyboard, the sequence runs properly, legato and glide work properly but I can't edit my sequence. When I want to change something in the sequence, I have to press sequencer activate button - steps light up, no legato and glide as it should be - there is some glide and some legato but not articulating in a clean manner like when the steps are unlit.
I hope DSI can do something about it for the future owners, but I'm out.
