Does anyone have a fix for this? The firmware in the last post bricked my controller and I had to install the latest to get it going again.

It is absolutely mind boggling to me that this is an issue on such an expensive controller.

Also, what is up with the absolutely insane verification measures to post on this forum? Is it because you don't want people posting about the quality of the controllers you are selling?

Hey everybody !

I had the same problem for the jumpy knobs and I thought something hardware was broken.
I have installed an older firmware (1.09 available on Arturia's website : http://downloads.arturia.net/products/minilab-mkII/firmware/minilabmk2_Firmware_Update_1_0_9_83.led) and I have set the "knob acceleration" to "fast" in the device settings of the Midi Control Center. It seems now to work in Analog Lab 4.

Hope it can help you with this problem  :)

Man I'm not sure I understand
the firmware you linked it's exactly the LAST firmware for MK2 https://www.arturia.com/minilab-mkii/resources and not an older version
can you please clarify?

Btw I've talked with support via ticket and they have no news on the new firmware release.
Looks like this is not their priority. After buying an MKII and a Beatstep Pro, plus Pigment and the whole Collection V, i was looking forward for the Audiofuse studio but I guess I'll go for another vendor if that's the support they give

Hello everyone.

In case you are facing jumps with your encoders when moving them slowly, I have a beta firmware that you can try.
This firmware is greatly improving the response of the encoders upon slow rotation. You can find it enclosed.

/!\ This is a beta firmware and not an official release /!\

I just got my Mk2 and was REALLY frustrated with the jumpy knobs when moving slowly. This beta firmware fix ALMOST perfectly. I still get som values in the opposite direction but at least is is usable now.

Will use for a couple of days and see how it goes. Thanks for sharing this!

[UPDATE]

After using it for 3 weeks, the beta firmware is terrible also since it ignores fast rotations. Went back to the latest official firmware and is too annoying.

I'm doing a lot of DAW and plugins custom mapping, so if I can't move the encoders either slowly or fast, I can't use it.

Unfortunately, I'm returning my unit, a real shame.

I just installed the beta 1.0.12 firmware on my brand new minilab as well,

I was using it inside Abelton live, and the control you got with knobs 8 and 16 was unusable (very jumpy, make you move between row and columns, on such a critical setting that was a real issue !)

The new firmware solved the jumpy slow movement it so far, so that is great news

However the controls are MUCH slower when you need to quickly tweak volume knobs

If I can make a suggestion for edouar & arturia ; it's maybe to keep in mind that knobs 8 and 16, in your own default ableton config, are very critical : so they might need more aggressive "debouncing" that the other knobs
So you can make all the knobs "behave like firmware 1.0.9" EXCEPT 8 and 16 that need to handle slow changes (in ableton)

Hi,

Issues with Ableton Live Lite 10 + Analog Lab 4 Lite. Initial dialing of knobs are really jumpy. I've installed Beta firmware. I've also tested all the modes (absolute,relative1/2/3). Also switched between none/take over/pick up in Ableton. Nothing helps. Really frustrating. If I spin up Analog Lab 4 Lite as standalone. It's working fine.

And I was  thinking of buying Analog Lab 4... Maybe not...

Anyone to help?

btw. Beta broke some of the knobs, so replaced with 1.0.9.

Hi,

I am also facing some issues with the MiniLab MK2. My knobs are just bouncing sometimes if I am moving them. Its not horrible, but its quite annoying in automation in Ableton for example. Thus I'm thinking about returning the product. Is there any hope, that I don't have to return the MiniLab MK2?

Sadly I too have this issue, values jumping around and not being smooth enough to record automation properly. The Mod Pad seems a little smoother, so where I have to, I've been using that. But I must say this product (MiniLab Mk 2) is a great disappointment. First time getting hardware from Arturia and it's a big let down. Only had it 3 days and I regret getting it because I purchased almost entirely on the look of those knobs :-D and sadly I have to avoid using them at all costs. I already have a great keyboard for playing in but needed some hands on interface with all the software synths I've got - from Arturia - so all in all its probably gonna be sold. Arturia, you should sort this. No one buys a keyboard like this one expecting it to be shakier than a mouse.

Are you sure the current version is 1.1.X? Yesterday mine updated to 1.1.2.

Much smoother experience with the knobs. Like night and day.
