Thanks so much, I love it! Sustain seems to work well, and Step+X to delete all events on the current track is a HUGE improvement. Shortcuts like that are most welcome <3

Is there a good cheatsheet or printable overlay for all the shortcuts Hermod has gotten over the years? I love that they are there but always forget them because I switch Sequencers regularly.

I think the new ‘step advance’ feature really opens up lots of new possibilities.
many here, have wished that the Hermod act more like a traditional step sequencer, and now this seems to offer this possibility - really looking forward to exploring this - bravo!

the improved midi support (cc1 mod matrix, sustain pedal) are also really useful when playing keys into Hermod.

I also like all the UI changes, shortcuts and display - might seem small, but they all just make things much more comfortable.

I don’t think so, and there aren’t many shortcuts.
I have noticed that the new ones are already in the manual :+1: , perhaps if the community came up with a list, then these could be added to a 'shortcut page in the manual? (pyramid has one already)

This is awesome, thanks for the great update! Addresses a ton of different issues I was having with hermod. and the added shortcuts are game changing for sure. Can do a lot more without menu diving now.

Does the new 1.50 update fix problems associated with using the Beatstep pro as a USB midi host?

Hi @brown242,

1.50 did not change anything with regard to USB.
As such, if you’ve been having issues in the past, I sorry to say I doubt that 1.50 will improve on this.

I just noticed the random Hermod logos on startup. Very cool. :sunglasses:

Hey there! Advanced Step edit mode isn’t working for me anymore… Can you still access it by pressing step and the encoder in?

Hi @Jeez_Max,

That’s a reported bug, to be fixed by the upcoming hermodOS 1.51 release.


Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

Anyone having random crashes with 1.5? I’ve had two in two days. I’m not sure how or what caused them, I was just going from one mode to another (ie: Effect to Step).

As much as I love Hermod, I hate it too :sweat_smile:

Thank you. Another member on the forum said he was successful using the BSP thru USB

I just want to say a huge THANKS, this update addressed so many things I’ve been struggling with and that I’ve wanted hermod to be, it’s like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon.
