Microfreak becomes mute
« on: July 15, 2019, 08:22:36 pm »
Hi,

I am a new microfreak user. I updated to latest upgrade.

But iím still experiencing an annoying bug.

after a while, tweaking or not the sound, the unit becomes mute !
user interface seems to work fine but thereís no sound anymore.

should I return the unit ?

I flashed the 1.1.2.390 FW and restored the 1.1 presets.
It worked flawlessly for about 40 minutes and then the sound disapeard.

Changing preset number didn't change anything nor device reboot  :o

I had to reflash FW and preset 1.1 to have sound again.
I will have to check it out again tonight and take a decision.

Yesterday, I changed the audio cable and restored the early FW and the 1.0 presets : all seemed to worked fine.
The synth entered in sleep mode within 5 minutes, leaving a sustained note.
Screen went off.
I could switch off and on again and all was still fine.

I then decided to updarde to latest FW version with 1.1 preset after : same behavior : so far so good.
I sustained my note again and the synth wen in sleep mode again, screen off.

I could switch off and on : I still don't know what really happened.
Honestly I prefer to keep a working synth at home rather than sending it back because its doesn't work.

I will do a bunch of test today again : I hope it will be OK.

Just having the same problem.
Updated to the latest firmware a few days ago, synth was working fine until today, suddenly no sound.
Maybe I will try and downgrade to the previous firmware.

I am on the latest firmware and I just started having the same Mute problem today. Please keep me posted if anyone resolves this. I've barely had the synth a month and it's already not working?

I've been advised by Arturia to return my Microfreak for repair or replacement.
