Update 2/23/2019: There’s also an OP-1 update that fixes more midi bugs and adds high resolution track view in tape mode.
Teenage Engineering just posted an updated firmware 1.1.23 for the OP-Z. You can download it here (see instructions for how to install it). There is also an updated OP-Z iOS app which you can download in the App Store.
We had a chance to play around with the latest update over the last day or so. A couple quick reactions * Happy to report that the midi over usb cable works substantially better when connecting to the OP-1. It’s nearly playable (had a few issues with notes not cutting off and being held for infinity on the OP-1…). * If you haven’t downloaded firmware 1.1.17, the behavior of the yellow volume tab thing means that it’s much louder. Set a very small turn if you have headphones on or you may hurt your ears. * Velocity changes on arpeggiator is amazing, really helps make it sound less robotic * Still trying to decipher what all of the release notes actually mean…
Here’s the full list of changes:
- allow programming steps with external controller - support velocity on arpeggiator track - change step length setting 9x to be 16x long - add full octave range to drum tracks - pass incoming midi start/continue/stop to other ports - improved stability - copy step now works on all tracks - change default tape volume and reverb parameter 2 - fix noisy resampling in synth sampler - keep sending audio to fx1/fx2 if audio muted - improve midi continue behaviour (works better with OP-1) - change maximum recording note length based on step length - show pattern position from solo mute context (same as pattern context) - properly reset parameters after releasing shift (temporary tweak mode) - “enable_program_change” setting now saved between reboots - don't play trigger driven tracks when muted - gate trigger step component trigger on entering step instead of exiting - fix hanging notes from linked tracks when pressing shift before releasing note - fix hanging punch in notes when releasing shift before releasing note - remove track clear wipe animation
