Free Speech / Re: Preset updater
« Last post by Edouard_Arturia on July 19, 2016, 09:19:06 am »
Hi.

Only the user presets will be scanned and converted.
If you want some factory preset to be converted, you first have to save them with the "Save As" function.
Once saved, it will be considered as a User Preset and will be convertible.

Best

I guess he means that the same arp transposed only with one root note.

Hi musicman100,

Did you try to delete this folder :
C:/ProgramData/Arturia/ArturiaSoftwareCenter
Then reinstall ?

General Discussion on Origin / Re: The Origin deserves cult status!

Philippe - I should ask you this, if you wouldn't mind:

Besides the encoders and pots: What parts inside the Origin would you personally upgrade/replace - and what extra parts would you keep on hand?

Origin uses 2 TS203S TigerSHARC DSPs. TS202S and 201S versions are higher range with more internal fast memory and more fast links between processors. The TS203S embeds 128Kx32bits fast RAM while the TS202S embeds 3 times this amount, and the TS201S 6 times. At the time we started the Origin project we could get a TS203 for around 55$, the others were available at around 200$ and more. When they introduced this family of DSP, Analog Devices had the goal to take a major place in the telecommunication market. For some reason I’m not aware of, they failed. So they didn’t sell enough chips and raised the price of the TS203 to something around 180$. Recently they announced that the TS203/2/1S entered a “last time buy” state. Building new Origins with these prices would increase the public price of Origin by an amount of something between one 1000$ to 1500$ (depending on the total margin: ours, distributors, resellers). This would be a lot of money !!

So what we did is to build as much boards and Origin we could using our manufacturer stock. They will be used mainly as spare parts for the maintenance.

IMHO: ~$55/each for that level of DSP chip? - I think that you guys did good! FWIW: Please pass that up the chain!

- And thanks for clarifying the exact chip # - now I know what to collect (ebay, etc.)

I’ve been pushing for that (ie - more sonic building blocks) a long time. Arturia's management thinks that this is not a priority today.

MANY MANY thanks for advocating on all of our behalfs, Philippe!

But perhaps as a matter of Company pride - in building an icon: Arturia's management might *still* want to consider adding 'module building blocks' to the Origin from time-to-time.

Hey: it's inarguable that just on looks alone: the Origin keyboard is truly unique - One-of-a-kind! 

I’d love to see an Origin2. Due to the “last buy time” and the price of the TS20x it could not be built on that kind of processor.

Well, we (collectively) can always dream, right?  ;D

Free Speech / Re: V Collection 4 upgrade?
« Last post by Rooby on July 19, 2016, 12:35:04 am »
I have to concur with all of the above; I had a lot of frustration with some  V Collection 4 a.u.s not being able to load on my Mac, because Arturia had not updated their Apple protocols. I mean, talking about paying for something that doesn't work.

Then, I just dreaded the thought of paying for the upgrades which again might not even work.

So, in the end, I didn't even avail of the free Analogue Lab offer.

How's that for a vote of confidence, Arturia?

Thanks Hermitnerd! Beautifully said.

And thanks to Philippe and others who made this instrument real.

I am still very happy to own two Origins (while having some knob problems with one).

Still if someday Origin 2 comes available I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. The Origin concept is just marvellous and it deserves a second chance, don't you think?

First of all: Thank-you very much hermitnerd for posting a link to Glen Darcy's video - what he said about the Origin really got to me for a couple of reasons. 1st: The Origin's life cycle was ultimately based on a Tigersharc version (ADSP-TS201* - non "S" as labelled, correct?...and will the ADSP-TS203S* work as a 1-for-1 replacement...and do both DSP chips need to be exactly the same part? lol) -> which had reached it's EOL; as the story goes: Arturia bought up as many of these as they could to make as many Origins as they could, while keeping a measure of the chips in inventory to service Origins when they came back for that specific repair.

Origin uses 2 TS203S TigerSHARC DSPs. TS202S and 201S versions are higher range with more internal fast memory and more fast links between processors. The TS203S embeds 128Kx32bits fast RAM while the TS202S embeds 3 times this amount, and the TS201S 6 times. At the time we started the Origin project we could get a TS203 for around 55$, the others were available at around 200$ and more.

This would be a lot of money !!

So what we did is to build as much boards and Origin we could using our manufacturer stock. They will be used mainly as spare parts for the maintenance.

Philipe: Is there any chance that you could continue to push for more sonic building blocks to be coded into the Origin? Would Arturia be kind enough to allow you to do that, from time to time? I, for one, have absolutely no plans whatsoever of getting rid of mine - and I'll bet that there are a few others here who feel the same way! 

I’ve been pushing for that a long time. Arturia's management thinks that this is not a priority today.

*Perhaps the Origin 2-Squared (suggested) should have 8(!) TigerSHARC chips on board instead of *only* (2) - as you *brilliant* French engineers know: Your chosen chip architecture supports such scaling! - C-mon, guys: Give modular synthesis a *REAL* run for it's money! ;D - GA     

I’d love to see an Origin2. Due to the “last buy time” and the price of the TS20x it could not be built on that kind of processor.

Hi can you clarify what doesn't work?

If I start an arpeggio by playing three notes then surely it will transpose if I select three different notes?
