Key sticks/stops responding after playing awhile
« on: November 23, 2019, 08:30:30 am »
Anyone run into something like this? (This is some of the content of my email to Arturia support). Just got my first one a week or two ago and the second a couple days ago.

======

Okay, I updated the firmware and reset settings as suggested.  After playing around for probably 20-25 minutes or so, I was able to get the note to hang (key to stick).  Iím providing a link to my DropBox account where Iíve attached two videos with narration as to what is happening.

Hopefully these videos are clear and help you see the issue. As I mentioned in my original contact, this is the second MicroFreak I have had with the exact same issue.

Iím not sure if perhaps Sweetwater just got a bad batch of instruments or if there is an actual issue with the MicroFreak in general. 

Here is the DropBox link ó  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/g3584w8ip4x2b9n/AAA3icPQ_7rVonplntZXendXa?dl=0

Thanks!

I have the same issue. It's usually the "A" key that either hangs or just stops responding altogether. I have to power off and power back on to get it to work again.

Hi,  I Just got a new one from Arturia, I will give it a test but it does sound like an issue with the key bed maybe try a third time lucky.
I have seen a few posts about a stuck keys in paraphonic mode. when playing a few notes at time.
have you tried a support ticket with Arturia?

Regards
