Yes, there is such a problem. Can't wait anymore. I'll take Minilab back to the store. Jumps at slow scrolling, blinking of the octave button. Worthless tool with 16 encoders. Programmers have not solved the problem and user requests for 3 years. Analog lab is also buggy and crashes. Sadly.

Hi and welcome to Arturia forums.

I don't have a Arturia controller yet, so i will not say anything about the jumping knobs, as i don't know anything about it.

But this:
Analog lab is also buggy and crashes.
Can you explain why many others apparantly do not exsperience Analog Lab 3 have a crashing issue?
Which Analog Lab 3 bugs are you refering to?

If there is something, then we can have a look at that in the Analog Lab 3 forum.

Your computer specifications and informations about your setup and usage of Analog Lab 3 will be needed.

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 /!\

Best

Hello Edouard! Do you have a beta firmware for the KeyLab MKII too? Noticing the same behaviour on some of its encoders.

Hi everybody!

Just got a brand new Minilab Mk2. I also have the same problems with the values jumping.

I think I might have an additional problem: Encoders 1 and 9 feel different when turning. It's like they're stuck and need some lubricant.
Has anyone noticed if the "feel" (not the slower change of values) on these encoders?

Thank you!

Thanks. I'll try this firmware today. I have to say I'm really really disappointed with mkII knobs

They are quite fine for massive operation (e.g. completely open a parameter) but you can't use them at all for slow movement and automation fine tuning.
I've tried everything: firmware update, mk2 reset, tried to connect mk2 with a powered usb-c adapter and another adapter.
Nothing changes, same shitty behaviour of ghost notes going back and forth even when I'm moving the knob in one direction. Ghost notes coming in when I've already stopped to move the knob one second before

I've tested both in ableton and Pigment/Lab Lite with both my Moog SubPhatty via USB and with my Virus kb via classical Midi cable and the control is perfect and smooth.
I exclude a software or laptop (macbook pro) problem. It is definitely the quality of the knob and probably the firmware to be really low.
I've looked up on google and see thread on this since 4-5 years. Almost incredible. Knowing that I'm not sure I would have opted for a MKII Minilab
