FIX mlr long file loading, increase buffer size, reduce to 4 tracks
if you’re having trouble with the USB disk update method, i’ve written up how to run the update via wifi hotspot. see the bottom of the update instructions.
if you’re seeing crashes, i highly suggest running the update via hotspot which has clearer confirmation that the update completed. i suspect some of the recent issues have been related to incomplete updates.
please post further issues. making progress.
huge thanks to @zebra for the epic debugging sessions
FWIW, I used 181008 today on an Appalachian Trail hike. It was under 60˚F at the top of the mountain when I used mlr with the OP-1. I did a few takes, one going over 20 minutes and experienced no crashes. I rebooted between takes, just to be safe, but that last one @ 20+ min surprised me.
I say this just because I felt how cold the devices were upon returning home and wondered if temperature has anything to do with the mlr crashes. I see that “NEW cpu and temp monitoring in system menu” is part of the changelog, but don’t know if you mean temp(orary) or temp(erature) … temp(tation) … temp(ranillo) …
interesting. could be. new supernova build (SC 3.10 beta-2) has some things “fixed” for “latency compensation” which maybe just means “more latency.” there are, of course, ways to test this and work around. (lets do that now.) if you want, you should be able to manually install supercollider .debs from an older release with no problems.
I’ll try a downgrade. The first time I heard it I played the same chord again, thinking it might have been my fingers and the time shift felt larger than a little “flam” (is there a word for that in piano playing) effect from not pressing three keys evenly. The second time the notes sounded as expected. It happened a few more times. I’ll try and reproduce more reliably.
Got the update installed without a hitch, and MLR has been awesome in my two sessions so far!
This is the case for me as well. Just tried recording two MLR takes to tape, and neither of them took. The levels interface is fine, and recording seems to work, but then I get nothing when I play back.
after many hours of testing and triage we decided that the kernel faults were probably not caused by supernova and only correlated with its introduction. we think the changes in the update should help. since you were one of the norns users experiencing regular kernel faults it would be great to get your feedback on it. (as far as i can tell, this is a minority of users which didn’t happen to include anyone in the core development group.)
With the upgrade to the new version, when I turn off the effects, I don’t get any volume out of my headphones - I “reset” the audio but that didn’t seem to have any impact. Am I missing something at a controls level?
