Uno Synth sequencer - bug or feature?

Postby Gadgetguy » Sat Jun 01, 2019 1:00 pm

Hello all,

I have experienced an interesting behaviour of the sequencer - is that a bug or a feature?

This is what I did - can you replicate and explain?

1. Select a preloaded pattern (I experienced this with both the factory presets and the Synthmania library - using the preloaded patterns without modifying in any way).

2. Go to lets say pattern 20, press "play" to start the sequence related to the preset.

3. Press the "down" button to go to next preset (and its associated sequence which should start to play).

4. Press "down" and "down" and "down" to listen to the various sequences for the various presets

At some point (in my case I started with preset 20 and it happened at preset 26) the sequencer starts to jump around. It jumps to a random (different) preset, then it jumps again to another one, than again and again. It continues jumping maybe 10-20 times to different presets (and different sequences, which are briefly playing as the preset jump takes places) and a few seconds later it stops on a totally different (random?) preset. So when I was on preset 26, the jumping started and I ended up on lets say preset 95.

I have experienced this now many times and can more or less consistently recreate by following the steps I have described above.

What is going on here?

Thank you for any thoughts!

I wish someone had responded to my post.

I have returned my unit before seeing the most recent firmware update which fixes this bug.

(The other reason for returning was the lack of an android app)

Off topic perhaps, but I would like to add my voice to the Android omission. I can only imagine what I could do with "Audio Evolution" for Android together with its companion "USB for Android" app along with the Uno. It's frustrating but I knew about it when considering the purchase and still went ahead anyway. If you don't ask you certainly won't get any time soon!
