BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Firmware Update
« Last post by DBM on Today at 03:04:27 am »
Quote from: terrym
what do you want to see in the firmware update? terrym

1. Better communication with MCC in OSX 10.9 and above .
2. Triplet values !!! ....what is a groove without 1/8 T ?
3. Note Tie ( use shift/seq and purple led  maybe ? )
4 . Up to 32 or 64 steps per pattern .

So how about it Arturia ? Can we squeeze a little bit more out of this ? The no triplet thing has bummed me out since I got it ... That at the least would allow it to still be useful running next to the Pro for me .

No word ? Any hope for updates or is this now a dead product ?
Origin Technical Issues / Origin doesn't save Settings
« Last post by flonky on March 26, 2015, 10:27:08 pm »
I'm a new Origin user (I bought a used one in very good condition, Firmware version 1.4.1, build 36673).
Each time I power it on I have to re-enter my "sound designer" name and the Settings I made are lost.
Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to save the Setting changes anywhere?
Please help,
MicroBrute / Lfo retrig

Isn't the LFO pretty useless if it doesn't retrigger each time you hit a note? It is to me...
Analog Lab / Re: Description of synthesizers?

Thanks for the tips.

I assembled a word document with the initial chapters from all the included instruments' individual manuals. Turns out to be a good 59 pages history of the synthesizers... although I haven't read it yet.
KeyLab / Re: Anyone using Microsoft surface Pro with keylab 88?
« Last post by laban77 on March 26, 2015, 12:17:22 pm »
I use Microsoft Surface Pro with Keylab 49, and it works fine. Since you ask specifically about Keylab 88, I suspect that you want to know whether the USB port can power the 88. That I don't know. It can power the 49 without any problems.
Spark Technical Issues / Re: SPARK Lag with Logic X
« Last post by jsmirk on March 26, 2015, 06:26:46 am »
I found a new bug in the beta. For me, this happens in standalone and logic pro x plugin. I'm able to repeat this 100% of the time.

* changing master volume causes the gui to refresh and respond slowly.
1) open Spark
2) change master volume
3) press play
Pads, meters, and steps are all affected.
BeatStep / Re: Help please: Beatstep with Roland SP404sx
« Last post by paddydrumbo on March 26, 2015, 02:15:37 am »
  Thanks again, this is looking hopeful.  That software looks a bit daunting for a MIDI novice,  but have now used it to upgrade my Beatstep's firmware for start. :-)   I'll take it one step at a time and get help along the way.

(EDIT): Note for myself & anyone else who's interested: 

          Roland SP404sx manual page 48 - MIDI Implementation Chart:

              Recognized:    * Basic channel  1 - 16
                                    * Mode (Default) Mode 3
                                    * Note Number    46 - 106
                                    * Velocity             
                                    * System Common - Song Position
                                    * System Clock
                                    * Real Time Commands
                                    * Aux Messages: All Sound Off & Active Sensing

UPDATE:    Ha! - managed to mess up on first attempt.  But threw a few new random MIDI notes into the Beatstep and got the Beatstep Pad 14 (F7) to trigger Bank E, Pad 7 of my SP404sx.  Hey, I'll settle for that humble beginning :-)  Now to work backwards with the MIDI notes and start again.

FINAL UPDATE:   Got it at last.  Beatstep pads 1 to 12 (B1 to A#2) leaving Beatstep pads 13 to 16 blank.
               That'll do me nicely for now, thanks, everything works great from a cold start away from the computer. 
 Still plenty to learn about this amazing controller, maybe doing other templates for 404's other banks or for my arranger keyboard, but well pleased at triggering 404's pads with velocity.

BeatStep will keep those settings to itself after configured through MCC, just like all the other Arturia controllers :)

Simply use the "Store" button, to send the config to a specific "Memory" (i.e. config slot) :)

All you need to do is find out what are the correct notes the SP404sx is expecting per its own pads.

Maybe you can even access the other banks. Check the SP404sx MIDI Implementation charts and see if there's a Specific CC or Bank+Patch/Program Change that triggers that or if other banks are accessible on other MIDI channels, then you'll be able to have various BeatStep configs for each channel or a 2nd config with BeatStep's pads sending a specific patch change and then you recall back to your usual config for the pads with notes out.

BeatStep's configurations are quite versatile enough to explore these options :)

Wow! That's great information, thank-you.  Dumb question coming up:   When I have configured my Beatstep like you said, would I need to involve linking up to a computer every time? Or would the Beatstep be able to remember these settings to be used as a standalone trigger for the 404? 

thanks again
