OK. I applied the calibration and it fixed it - but it did not survive a restart of the device  :(

I followed the instructions exactly and before doing so, I made sure I had the latest firmware upgrade too.

Kind regards

Derek.

We have received a unit and we are working on a solution.

Sorry for the delay.

Interestingly, after several power recycles, and then leaving the Microbrute on for several hours, the calibration "stuck" and survived the next reboot.

Still not how it should be of course, it's a "this shouldn't happen" situation. But, hopefully Arturia will get a permanent fix out. Appreciate they're looking at it now.

Regards

Derek.

I don't have the same issues as the users above me, but I do have a pitch wheel that doesn't seem to do anything at all. I'm hoping it's a switch that needs to be turned on that I'm missing, but I don't think it is.

I've got a similar problem with the Pitch Bend wheel, there's a dead zone from just above the centre to right near the top, during which it drops the pitch by a fixed amount. 

Using the calibration tool fixes it as long as the power's on, but on rebooting it reverts to how it was before.  Changes made using the Microbrute Connection software are retained OK, it's just the wheel calibration that is not stored properly.

I may have figured out the calibration not persistent after reboot issue.
Sorry about the long delay it was a pretty complex bug.
We very will soon provide a firmware update that should fix it.

I've been trying it here on 2 MicroBrute and it seems to fix the problem.

If you still experience this wheel calibration problem please try :

Well, I tried that (on a Mac here) I updated the firmware. However, that doesn't calibrate it on a Mac, of course. So I don't know if it fixed my pitch wheel problem (described it on page 2), so I dunno if it works.
Is there a chance you could do the calibration software for Mac, too?

After updating your firmware to the latest version you absolutely need to calibrate again the pitch bend wheel.

I am having the same issue with calibration, and even though my PC can see and communicate with the microcontrol software, every time I try to run the calibration, it just says: failed, and won't go beyond that. Any help?

Thank you, that did the trick, and the wheels now track just fine. I love this little synth. :-)

All Right! I did it and it fixed my pitch wheel problems. (For the benefit of others, my problem was that slight movement from the centre position in either direction would result in a sudden shift of pitch to the degree of the total range of the pitch wheel. If I moved it a little more it would revert to the original pitch and then after moving a bit more revert to normal pitch bending.)

Thanks! This was a lot less trouble than returning the unit! I am back in love with it!
