New Blofeld OS v1.20

Post by meatballfulton » Mon Jun 23, 2014 2:35 pm

Latest firmware 1.20 available here but reports already of a new set of bugs :oops:

More info at KVR
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

It was playing 2 voices at once over midi, causing phasing issues. Apparently 1.21 has been put out after we all complained, and it has fixed the issues.

Wow, 1.20 has been removed from the download page already.

Yep, 1.21 was there for a bit but introduced another problem with volume. Fix due today ;)

just scroll in the arp section, theres only like 6 pages and one of em has the bpm for the arp that you can set to whatever you want. but fyi it won't get in to a decimal point. so you can have 120 bpm but not 120.5 , ect.

Has anyone tried the new 1.22? and the 1.4 for the keyboard?

I need to use the blofeld for something important so I don't want to ruin anything for that.

I'm using 1.22 and 1.4, haven't had any problems. Though I'm not using the stuff that seems to have caused most of the problems with earlier OS versions, i.e. external MIDI clock and multi mode.

That's good to know. I am not particularly using those either but I didn't want to install and it mess something else up.
Nice one matey.
Have you had any issues with jittery encoders at all and if so, did this update help?

Same here. But so far it's been rock-solid.

I do feel like the encoders are a bit more predictable with the new OS. I didn't have too much problems with them earlier, though, but that could be because I only had the Blofeld for less than a month before the update hit.
