Recently I purchased a hypno. Crm4 prebuilt. Absolutely loving it.
Using a digitakt to midi control it and using some other gear for cv.
Now… I have noticed several bugs so far and have crashed many times. Usually the crashes have something to do with an incompatible file type so that’s not my worry.
My main worry is… preset saving. Lots of my patches don’t save exactly as they were when I saved them. This is especially the case for any patches that are using video or images from a flash drive.
Y offset and scrolling NEVER save. They are always reset upon loading a patch containing a image or video. This has become intensely frustrating, as I need those parameters saved for successfully loading up the patches as intended.
Ontop of that, individual shape hues also seem to not save to presets, and sometimes a preset will load with the rotate SLIGHTLY adjusted and then snap back to base level after 3 seconds. Bizarre, as I am saving the patches with those parameters at starting position anyways.
Something else I have noticed which frustrates me: When a usb stick is plugged in I tend to get a frame rate drop. Even if I am using the internal shapes (and even if it is only one oscillator) I see a chunky reduction in frame rate. If I unplug the usb stick, my frame rate jumps back up.
Also, it seems… random on if a video will have a smooth or jumpy frame rate. What I mean by that is sometimes the frame rate slows even for a video where the framerate was smooth moments before, and with the same parameters. It seems inconsistent in how well it wants to run, and the only thing that seems to reset this (and randomly roll the dice on performance) seems to be taking the usb stick out and putting it back in.
All of this is odd, and admittedly I’d love to find a solution to it. I really want to be able to use videos and pictures to really get the most out of the unit, however with how unreliable it has been in both patch saving and performance… I can’t see myself doing so.
Also: Are the pots and faders really such a low resolution? If I adjust a knob slowly, often I will get NO change unless I give it a little jerk. I know that a parameter “latches” until the knob gets to the last value that the parameter was set to, but often I am turning with little to no effect or getting large jumps when it does recognize some changes.
This makes fine tuning any of the parameters a chore of jumping back and forth until I hopefully land in a sweet spot that’s appropriate. It almost seems like parameter values will jump for no rhyme or reason. The value changes seem to be inconsistent and sluggish.
This also makes file navigation a nightmare. I am consistently skipping past videos and have found that I need to limit my file organization to 6 to 8 folders of 6 to 8 files so that I can even navigate it in any precise manner.
Any solutions or suggestions would be amazing. Thank you.
