How to tell what version you have

  1. Tap the ROTATE button 10 times

  2. Look at the color of the Channel 1 Env Out LED:

    • If it's Pink, then you have Version 5

    • If it's Blue (and all the other Env Out LEDs are off), then you have Version 4

    • If it's Yellow, then you have Version 3

    • If it's Green, you have Version 2

    • If it's blue or any color and all the Env Out lights are on, then you have Version 1.

Version 5:

  • New Features:

    • Two-Pass filter algorithm (default)

    • One-Pass filter selectable in System Mode (default in earlier versions)

    • Fine Tuning is now exponential (number of cents can be set, and stays consistant even if rotated or new bank/scale selected)

      • Fine Tuning amount is updated at zero-crossing of the Freq Nudge knob, and value-crossing afterwards
      • Fine Tune display on Env Out LEDs: white/blue mean +0 to +1 semitone
        • Display timer hides the display after a bit
    • Transposition: Hold down Lock button and turn Freq Nudge
