The latest firmware update for the OP-Z (1.2.12) brings a fancy new LFO with different shapes and—a personal favorite—tempo sync. You can also use the accelerometer as input to the LFO (similar to the OP-1). There’s a slew of other minor improvements and bug fixes including the annoying L/R channels being incorrectly swapped over USB audio.
Here’s the full list of changes:
- redesigned lfo with new shapes, tempo sync and accelero-meter support. read about it here. - add lfo to effect tracks - add note style option to master track (latch, free). read about it here. - add low battery led indication. read about it here. - add setting to disable arpeggio. read about it here. - softer pop at shortest envelope release setting - fix crash when killing notes (TRACK+STOP) on tracks other than the first 8. - fix flipped usb audio L/R signal - fix occasional pop/noise on tape track - fix bug where polyphony note stealing sometimes chose wrong note - don't stall midi output when switching projects while connected to app - disregard 'channel_one_to_active' setting when processing incoming UI group CC messages
