I’ve only had time to look at maiden once and had a similar issue- I think I had to toggle wifi off/on to get browser to load
I would love more info on how to access maiden
works for me…this seriously feels like magic yall
i’m in love
That password was the ticket. Loading happily on my Mac and on iOS. THANKS!
Just browsing maiden - looks really slick!
A post was merged into an existing topic: Approaching: norns
just unboxing and for some reason i’m focused on wifi first (why i don’t know), but dongle is in, password correct on multiple networks, but no matter what i do it’s “status:failed”. not sure what i’m doing wrong here. anyone else having this problem?
Quick thought. There’s a bug in the shipped wifi setup script that sometimes wrongly reports connection failure. The good news is it’s fixed and should be better on the next update. In the meantime, it’s worth checking if it’s actually connected and just says it failed.
Same experience here. Man, this is a beautiful device. That is a beautiful display. I could watch the sparkles at length…
Inserting a USB drive to Norns when turned off resulted in perma -sparkle on power-on. Bottom buttoned, removed drive, restarted with no worries.
SYSTEM/SYNC to USB took a minute to complete but completed fine. Connected Grid did some fancy flashing for a second or two, then stopped. Remembered to dismount USB properly.
Some WAV questions:
- Is there a major downside with using WAV files recorded at 44k, or is 48k a hard requirement?
- Signed 16/24/32 bit PCM or Unsigned 8 bit PCM or some other odd format? I ask because Max asks.
- Of the 1GB RAM, how much do you reckon is a good safe amount to take up with WAV files?
Not a hard requirement. but recommend 48k to avoid unnecessary resampling at runtime.[oop, I kinda lied. In the case of current MLR buffer utility, I think you will get playback at wrong pitch. We should patch in high-quality resampling at file load time.]
- Shouldn’t matter, except for usual reasons (dynamic range)
- The engine used by MLR doesn’t allocate ram when you load a soundfile, it copies into preallocated buffer and trims to fit. (MLR has a quite arbitrary total buffer of 256 seconds at the moment.)
maybe a part of the wifi bug ~ my norns just got stuck on password input screen for connecting to wifi network. first attempt came back with a “failed”, and when i went back in to double check my spelling and try again, the navigation with encoders around the letters, DEL and OK works but i can’t actually select anything or exit that screen so i had to force power off.
(also just want to say that i am completely in awe of this device. so beyond inspired to create and learn and share with it… congrats and many thanks to everyone involved. it’s truly very special !! )
What’s the third column in the mixer section? Is there away to arm a track, hear the source and when it’s recorded the pass through of audio stops?
third column is input monitor level. i haven’t recorded anything into norns yet so i’m not sure about the behavior but it seems like bringing that up should get you what you want.
arm record by holding key 2 and hitting key 3. and again to record, and again to stop.
I also get a failed when I try to connect to my wifi network. Also had the same sort of experience getting stuck on the password inout screen.
i plan to overhaul the wifi connection interface very shortly— it is too fragile.
in the meantime i’d suggest trying out maiden with hotspot mode. it’s pretty reliable.
is there visual feedback anywhere while norns is off and plugged in to know if it’s charging?
was running mine since unboxing for about 3 hours just jamming and then it died
didn’t check what the battery percentage was when i first turned it on though. do we have a battery life estimate with constant normal activity? i’ll probs always keep a little power bank handy anyway…
Key2 on the Norns? And key 3 while hitting Key2 or after? Sorry I’m having such a hard time figuring this part out!
If I hit key 2 it toggles between Volume/speed mod and rec level/overdub. key 3 doesn’t seem to be doing anything that I can tell
most shipped with around 80% battery. battery % indicated on the LEVELS screen in the upper right.
different engines/scripts use different amount of CPU hence different amounts of power. you can see the power drain by holding KEY1 in LEVELS. the battery is 2250maH so you can do the math of how far you’ll get given your current consumption. (it also shows charge rate, as a positive number)
and no, there’s no indication when charging when the thing is powered off. unfortunately there wasn’t a quick (cheap) way to implement that in the circuit.
yep, the keys on norns. while in REC mode in levels you hold down key 2 to access the record functions, and you execute them by hitting key 3 while still holding key 2. switch between REC and PLAY modes by holding key 2 and turning encoder 3. you’ll see this visually on the screen as well. maybe you’re still in play mode?
this info and more helpful navigation basics is on the legend (levels and tape section) that came in the box with norns, also pdf version here
