super excited to look through the code/dust later tonight.

has all of batch 1 been shipped? thought i made it into the first 100 (order 2312) but perhaps not as i havent gotten a shipping notice.

If it’s any help, i’m 2296 and got a confirmation a couple minutes ago. Had had similar fears over the wknd and traced back to this comment about the first norns order being 2225.

obviously not an official answer from monome, but I’d have faith your shipment notification is forthcoming

i haven’t tried norns usb, but i did have an op1 (actually two) with major noise over usb. i was never able to fully fix it, but i did make things MUCH better with these three things (#1 has already been mentioned)

•shut off charging in op1’s com menu
•use a power conditioner, like the awesome furman power racks
•use a high quality usb hub [like this one] https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0792SN8QS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_iqCdBbWN5633N)

best of luck!! currently my endorphin shuttle control is my noisy bastard of the studio.

my norns arrived, but opening the box revealed a cracked oled panel :weary:

looks like I’ll be waiting a little bit longer to dive into it. it’s lovely in person and so small!

docs updated and much more to come: https://monome.org/docs/norns

From the updated doc’s.

KEY2 resets sequence positions.

HOLD KEY, then:
ENC1 changes scale mode.
ENC2 changes filter cutoff.
ENC3 changes release time.
TAP KEY1 quickly to enter MENU.

At the top of this section is it mean to say ‘hold key 2’ or 1?

Errbody needs to stop having fun and start uploading some videos of Norns in action!

I’m being pretty optimistic about arrival time through aus customs. I don’t know if my optimism is warranted.

This (cvPal) will be one of the first things I try out when I get norns.

It lives! Couldn’t stop myself from turning it on in the park on the way home.
