  • bitbox micro 1.2 feedback

    A few days ago we posted a beta version of bitbox micro 1.2. It includes an LFO per voice, improved granular controls, and lots of other things.

    Please give it a try and let us know how it worked out for you below.

    Thank you for your support.

    Been having a lot of fun with the new update. The only issue I have found is that when on slicer mode, you can not change the polyphony (this bug was also in previous versions). Other than that it works fantastic, thanks Aaron and the 1010music team!!

      Aaron, is it possible to assign MIDI velocity to the ADSR parameters or is it just MIDI CC ?

        Yes, it is possible to assign velocity to AD and R

    • #4
      Yes. You get the same modulator list found elsewhere on the device. EXT1-8, etc.

        Just had the long sample problem (cut into pieces) on 1.2.3. Dont know if the new SD card option in preferences tries to fix that, but now I changed it to compatible, and will keep testing to see if it happens again.

        Updated post 2 minutes later:
        Same problem, so the SD option doesn't change that.

          Please share card specs and file resolutions, length, etc. I need more info to investigate.

        It happens almost each time on the second sample, and only sometimes on the first.

          Seems both pads are setup almost the same, and which one that makes the dropouts is random. Today the dropouts are on the first pad, and its even random pr. time I visit the sample window. The second pad works fine today. I have attached (linked) pictures of the settings and sample windows. I took two different pictures of the first pads sample window to document its random pr. time it generates the graphics in the window.

          Have you tried changing the SD mode in TOOLS?

          Yes changing the SD mode was the first thing I tried. No difference, so I changed it back to to High Speed.

        I have just updated to the beta and I found this issue: When the device has just booted, if the brightness setting is on 100% and I change it (I was setting it to around ~35%), it reboots the device.

        Steps to replicate:
        1. Power on device
        2. Click 'Tools' to access Brightness setting
        3. Adjust to below 100%

        Result: Device reboots

        Workaround:
        1. Power on device
        2. Click 'Tools' to access settings
        3. Wait until Brightness setting adjusts to previously saved setting

        Result: Device is stable

        YouTube video demonstrating issue

        Additional info: when adjusting down to 30%, I experienced screen flicker between 33% down to 30% but then it stopped and adjusting back above 50% down to 30%, it wasnt seen again until next power cycle.

        Edit to add:
        Have also just found that when clicking to create a new program, it also reboots:

        Steps to replicate:
        1. Click on upper centre pad
        2. Click 'File'
        3. Click 'New'
        4. Wait 10 seconds & device reboots

        I had repeated steps to test replication and it rebooted on step 2 after I clicked 'File' but when I try again now, it seems to be stable and doesn't reboot on steps 2 or 3

          I have had a reboot once, but it happened while not using the BBM and I just noticed it restarting.
          It hasn't done it since, so I never reported it, as it could have been a power supply glitch caused by something else in my setup. But it happened on 1.2.3.
          Btw. my brightness is only at 2.1% which is bright enough on my device - and been so on earlier firmwares too. Above 10% is not an option, its too bright.
          And mine flickers around 8-11%, but not every time I chose it. Its kind of random when it happens, but its in that range.

        Hmmmm. I am unable to reproduce. What else is in that case? Could it be a power issue?

          I've read elsewhere on this forum, that using bright display settings draws more power, so yes, I asume its about the power draw, ie. power supply.
          That also goes for the reboots.

          That is true about brightness drawing more power.

        Thank you so much for all the great improvements! All of it is extremely useful, already deep exploiting everything and used it for my live performance this weekend - i love it.

        The range of the LFO feels a bit limited. It would be great with slower and faster speeds in the freerunning mode and 16 & 32 bar in BeatSync.

        Is freerunning applied per voice?

          All LFOs and their settings are per pad.

          Steve - It sounds as if theyre applied per polyphonic voice activation, if that makes sense?

      • #10
        Thanks for the new fw 1.6.3

        Is there a changelog somewhere?

          Please be patient. We are working to align the version #'s across all three samplers. Once it is finished, I will work on a master list for each (current) product.

          Uh, I am patient, but still looking forward to each update and info about it, like a child at christmas time :-D
          Thanks, and keep up the good work.

          I understand that. I still get excited for new firmware, too!

      • #11
        Getting on for three weeks later, do we have notes for 1.6.3? It's good to know what to look for.

          Hi, I noticed that when loading multisample the polyphony option is not there. You can still define the polyphony before loading the mulstimasples, but then you can not change it once its loaded.

            PDofCC Before loading the sample, in the sampling menu of the pad, use the [>] button to go the the sample options, then go to configuration and you will see the polyphony option there, make the changes you want and go to back to the sample menu of that pad and load the MultiSamples. It should keep the polyphony option you set.
            Does that makes sense? Let me know if something is unclear

            Thank you!! Yes, I understand now. If I start with a blank Pad (ie no sample loaded), or a Pad with a single sample loaded, then I can see the Config sub-menu and I can access the Poly option, and set a polyphony value, which does indeed seem to be retained if I then go back and load a set of multisamples. That's a great workaround, thank you so much. The problem in v1.6.3 seems to be that the whole Config sub-menu goes missing as soon as a set of multisamples is loaded into a pad. Thanks again.

            Yes, same here...

          I experienced some weirdness here when using multysamples:
          I got a lot of digital noise / distortion when playing polyphonic.
          It affects other voices too; almost as if it stalls the entire unit for just a bunch of sampling rate cycles.
          (Like when in ableton the buffer size is too small for the CPU performance

          Also sporadic reboots for no obvious reason.
          Had to go back to the last version...

          But i am looking forward to using the LFO's and that sweet added resonance control!
          Not so sure about the sub-menus though.I had trouble finding things. but maybe it is just something you'll get automatically used to...

          Sorry for the non-specific and probably not very helpful feedback

            Already posted somewhere else but this might be the right place:

            I am not able to change density and other values on the new granular page via ext.input modulation.
            The same external source can change start pos.

            Known bug or am i missing something ?

              I found a bug for the version 1.2.3, when trying to assign modulation to the envelope, it sends you to the level or the previous modulation set. So it is not possible to assign it would appreciate if gets fixed, since I use that a lot
