Download the update zip file, unzip, and follow the details on how to update your SpazeDrum, in the SpazeDrum user manual. If you have not updated your SpazeDrum for some time, it is only nescessary to update it with the latest update.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO USE A FAT32 FORMATTED USB DRIVE, NOT LARGER THAN 32 GB, AND PLEASE DO NOT RENAME THE FILES!
IMPORTANT: I RECOMMEND USING A NEWER 16 OR 32 GB FAT32 FORMATTED USB STICK, THAT ARE A BRAND LIKE KINGSTON OR SANDISK, FOR THE UPDATING. TRY TO IMPORT A SAMPLING FROM THIS DRIVE, BEFORE YOU PERFORM THE UPDATE, TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYTHING WORKS AS INTENDED.
UPDATES HAS BEEN TESTED, USING A WINDOWS 10 PC. OTHER OPERATING SYSTEMS ARE NOT SUPPORTED.
Some bug fixes: -Sample Chop: When generating a fixed number of chops, it would add an extra chop point at the end point. This has now been fixed. -Graphical Sample Edit: If the last chop point was deleted, it would show a wrong portion of the sampling on the screen. This has now been fixed. -Graphical Sample Edit: If the sample start point was moved, to add a chop point, and the chop points afterwards were saved, it would also save the sample start point, and delete the portion of the sampling before the start point. Now sample start/end and chop points are saved separately. -Graphical Sample Edit: When moving the end point or a chop point, the graphics would malfunction. This has now been fixed.
By downloading this update, I hereby declare, that I understand, that if I do not use the recommended 16GB or 32 GB USBstick, from the list of tested USB sticks (please see in top of this site), for updating my instrument, and if I have not tested this by importing a sampling first, my instrument might be malfunctioning afterwards. So please follow the recommendations on the top of this site.
Works with all models of SpazeDrum. -Sequencer knob tracks can now be used as LFO waveforms. -TOUCH MODEL ONLY: Sequencer knob tracks can now be “drawn”. -Sequencer Knob tracks can now run independently from the knobs, and act as controller tracks. -New Reso EQ effect! -New Mod Delay effect! -New Comb Filter effect! -New optimized Compressor with side chain! -Chorus effect has been optimized. -New Reverb Effect! -Immediate Preset change! -Sequencer continue/restart function. -Sequencer note track step probability can now be controlled by Knob Track 4 for each of the 16 parts. -VU-meter added to decay envelopes. -New blue’ish color scheme is now available. -Parameter fine adjust. -Metronome is now only audible, when the sequencer is running. -Sequencer metronome count-in is now only active, when the metronome is on. -Sequencer real time recording timing has been improved. -Sample playback is now stopped by Panic function. -MIDI program change is now transmitted, as soon as a new preset is selected, instead of when Spazedrum actually changes the preset, in order to make other connected pattern based instruments change program in time. In Song mode program changes are sent one tic before the preset is changed.
-New color scheme. Goodbey to the white pages… -Sample Pitch V2 Effect has been added –GlitchShifter 3 has been removed. -LFO’s can now Key Sync to sequencer tracks. -Can now import LD3, Tiny LD and Urano sequences. Bug Fixes: -Digital voices were not affected by Group Levels. Now they are. -The 4th EFX modulation amount could not be adjusted with Morph Set on. Now it can. -Preset Confirm did not work, when changing presets via the step buttons. Now it does.
Version 7.04 -A Keyboard Select mode has been added, that will make a connected MIDI keyboard play the entire range of the selected part, without you having to set up zones. -LFO’s waveforms curve can now be set from logarithmic to exponential. -Modulation Envelopes can now loop the ADS segment. -When the /Bar Sel, /Mute or /Part buttons are held for a while, just to check the status of the Bar Select, Track Mutes or Part selection, without changing these, the Morph Set, Func and Steps functions will no longer be activated. -MIDI Program changes can now be transmitted. Bug Fixes: -Portamento did not work properly on Digital voices. Now it does. -If an insert effect were set to certain filter types, and then you switched to the Distortion effect, SpazeDrum would crash. This has now been fixed. -It is now no longer possible to save a Favorite sound, from a preset that has not been saved to the preset memory. This would make SpazeDrum do strange things. -When VCA output select is set to “EFX”, the Part is now no longer sent to the analog outputs. -When doubling a Knob Track, this could make the knob track go up to 128 steps, even though each Knob Track is maximum 64 steps long. This has now been fixed.
Version 6.91 -New triple filters -New Insert Effects OverShifter and EQ2 -2 new Noise waveforms added to the digital oscillators -Clip parameter has been added to the Envelopes. -Pitch Bend range is now settable per part. -Pitch Bend can now be recorded on the Sequencer Knob tracks -Seq Edit Quick Jump button is now toggling between the sequencer pages. -Sequencer knob tracks can now be transmitted as MIDI CC’s. -SpazeDrum samplings are now running exactly 44.1 KHz . Bug Fixes: -Knobs sequencer realtime recording did not work for parts 9 to 16. This has now been fixed.
Version 6.20 -4 Extra digital voices, for a total of 8 voices (4 analog and 4 digital) –(Husk ins EFX routing) -25 new filter types for a total of 41 different filter types! -ReSampling function with number of bars and auto-chop added -New metallic noise waveforms for Analog Percussion modulation -New asymmetrical distortion effect -Sample loop function added -LFO’s one-time mode added -Preset change confirm function added (+Exit dropper preset skift) -Song/Pattern mode change: Song button now has to be held for a couple of seconds -EFX buffer clear between pattern changes, can now be switched off Bug fix: -When note track gates were set higher than half the maximum value, and “All Values Edit” were switched on, all gate times were forced below half the maximum value. This has now been fixed.
Version4.36 -A cool icon is now shown at start-up! -256 favorite sounds can now be stored, for instant recall. -Added functionality of the 4 Edit Knobs: Group Morph and Group Levels. -Oscillator D can now be sent to the analog oscillators. -Ring modulated noise has been added as a noise source on Analog Percussion and Analog Clap. -4 new G-RAY soft modes have been added. Bug fixes: -If no samplings were imported in the SpazeDrum FLASH memory, and the oscillator pages were accessed, it would start scanning for samples, which would affect the sequencer and envelopes timing. This has now been fixed. -If a part was set up to External MIDI mode, and this part was controlled from an external MIDI device, notes would hang, if more than one note were played at a time. This has now been fixed. -The sequencer position was not present on the VCF pages. Now it is. -The PitchShaper effect Oct parameter would show wrong values (the effect did though work as intended). This has now been fixed.
Version3.88 Bug fixes: -The note track sub position track did still not work properly with morph layer B. Sorry about that! This has hopefully now been fixed. -LFO's AM modulation source could be set to non-existing modulation sources. This has now been fixed.
Version3.83 -MIDI key zones can now be set for each part. Zones can be switched on/off via the trigger buttons. -Zone Magic makes it super easy to set up MIDI key zones. -A part can now be set in “External” mode, for controlling external MIDI devices with SpazeDrum’s sequencer and buttons. -Selected part number is now shown on more pages, to make it easier to keep track of copy/paste and others. -The Func button will now no longer automatically switch off, when a quick jump/func button is pushed. -Analog group VU-meters has been added in the bottom of pages, that has no waveform view. Bug fixes: -When Part/Mute was set to “Latch”, it was not possible to change preset. This has now been fixed. -Sequencer realtime recording did not record notes received via MIDI IN. This has now been fixed. -The note track sub position track did not work on morph layer B. This has now been fixed. -If any note track sub position steps were set to any other value than zero, the “adjust all sequencer steps” function would not work. This has now been fixed. -When a part layer A+B was copied/pasted, only layer A was copied/pasted. Now both layers are. -Note Randomizer quick jump would jump to the note track position sub track. Now it will jump to the Note Randomizer. -If you switched to the next preset, and then switched back to the current preset, before the preset change happened, while the sequencer was running, it would play back the wrong preset. This has now been fixed.
Version3.30 Bug Fixes: -If a sequencer note track resolution was set to 1/24 or higher, and the track had some empty steps, and then some active steps, the second active step would not play back. This has now been fixed. -If the Variator effect was selected, either as insert or output effect, it would, at certain effect settings, sometimes cause SpazeDrum to crash, and write "HARDFAULT" in the display. This might also have applied to other effects. This has now been fixed. -It was not possible to select sample chop points in Graphical Sample Edit. This is now possible, using the step buttons and the Bar Select. User manual has been updated. -It was possible to select knob controller tracks steps 65-128, even though the knob controller tracks max can be 64 steps long. This has now been fixed. -The Analog Cymbal has 2 types of FM, that were both named FM, and it could be hard to figure out, which was which. The squared FM has now been renamed to SQ. -The MIDIprogram change input parameter has been moved from the COMMON page to the COM2 page. It could not be set on the COMMONpage :) -The Steps parameter in the unsynced Granulator was missing its brown knob. This has now been added.
