Just got BeatStep today. Went to website and got latest FW 1.1.0.0 and Midi Control Center. Flash the BeatStep to 1.1.0.0. The factory default notes were set/stored and displayed, but both MCC Midi Console and MidiOx confirm that the device is sending other values (9 semitones higher). So, I needed to go an reprogram the notes starting from D#0 instead of C1 to work in Ableton drum rack correctly.

How did this pass V&V?

You can transpose in CNTRL mode as of 1.1.0 so perhaps you just have it offset?

in CNTRL mode, using Shift + big knob, on a +/-24 half steps range.

"Overall Transpose" is 0. Are you refering to something else?

Ok, I think this may have just happened as a result of holding shift in CNTRL mode and turning the big knob. The app doesn't clearly reflect that transpose to the user.

Yeah, that's what I was referring to and yes, the lack of feedback is a pain point.
