Yeah, but every other instrument sucks worse!
Switches, knobs, buttons, LEDs, LCD screens, monitors, keys, mice, jacks, sockets. Now two joysticks!

I am new to the Evolver and spent way to much time trying to track down what I was doing wrong before learning that this issue was more widespread than just my "new to me" unit.

I guess for future internet travelers, here's how I was able to recreate this problem reliably using a different method than what is discussed and by playing the same note over and over.

1. I created an init preset from page 8 of Anu Kirk's 'Definitive Guide To Evolver'.

2. I ensured that my Key Off/Xpose was set to Zero.

3. I copied the init preset that I just created to a neighboring slot so that I could easily toggle between the two identical presets.

4. Turn the program knob to change to one (or the other) of the init presets.

5. Press a key on my MIDI controller and listen for the DCO and VCO not firing at the same time. Press the same key again (without changing programs) and everything sounds as expected.

6. Repeat 4 and 5 until sad because by now you've noticed the issue.

7. Sigh and be sad.
