Keys get stuck at random times for random durations
« on: January 04, 2021, 11:12:20 pm »
This microfreak is about 5 months old and the keyboard was hardly used. I have recieved it from a friend and I have the problem that every now and then, keys will get stuck and the note will ring on, sometimes for a fraction of a second, sometimes even for multiple seconds. It happens often enough that it really annoys me. It seems that during a session it's always the same few keys that are most likely becoming stuck, but the "vulnerable" keys change between sessions.

I don't think I have grounding issues, tried with the power supply, with an usb power supply, with a powerbank, with different sockets throughout the house, problem remains. I don't exactly have dripping wet hands either. The air, I would say is rather dry since it's winter/heating season here. What might be the problem, what else could I try?

Same issue with KeyStep.
It seems like a taboo subject as I search for answer too in this BB.

Same here using microfreak kbd, buttons stuck at random times and very often. I tried wiping the buttons and set sensetivity to min value, it doesn't help. Only a reboot helps to fix these stuck buttons until next stucking. this is unrealistically annoying

Upd: oops, in my case it was usb power. This bug was disappeared when I connected 12V power supply. as a quick test, you can touch the pitch bend - if it behaves unstably, then you have a power problem.

Upd2: it still exists, but much less often

Same here, mostly when working with the sequencer and starting & stopping it via my DAW (Studio One).
