since i updated my JF to the last firmware (btw now best module of my life) i find that in cycle/shape mode JF is not super slow as before.
Do you have the same problem? i remember super slow lfo cycles, but now i can’t make it anymore.
There are two versions of the firmware:
Use JF v3.0.4_slow if you want the super slow modulations of the original firmware.
How can you tell which firmware you have? I got mine used and don’t know.
What’s defined as slow with the firmware you’ve got installed? I think that I’ve got the same firmware installed as you do, but as this module is a new friend in my life I really don’t know…
And with the super slow modulations that Alessandro is mentioning, am I losing anything else if that is installed instead?
Here, from the horse’s mouth:
I seem to remember something about the faster times in the new firmware being linked to tighter tuning - but I can’t find the post.
You can use the new firmware and send a negative offset into the Time input to get slower cycles.
Thanks! I just noticed in a mail from the seller that he said it’s got the slower version installed, but I think it’s not that slow as mentioned in the description above. Well, still great!
Remember, when he’s saying those ranges, he’s probably incorporating negative (and positive) CV offset patched to the Time input.
You can push a negative cv into the time v/o jack to slow it down again right?
Not sure where to post this.
I updated the firmware on my JF last night and everything seemed to go well until the very last step.
I used my iPad Air v1 as the playback device, so I assume it was operating at the required 48khz.
The last step says: “ 3N will light temporarily and then Just Friends will restart anew!”
So, 3N did light temporarily, but after that all the lights just started flashing in a fast and seemingly random fashion.
I’m not sure what it was supposed to do when restarting anew in this configuration.
The sound/cycle seems to go much lower in pitch than before, and the speed of the pulsing lights seems slower…
Are there any steps I can take to try to determine if it’s working correctly?
