hermodOS 1.71 - new (bugfixed) Firmware

Hey y’all !

It’s been reported over the weekend that version 1.70 introduced a critical bug that prevented changing track lengths by 1/16th note increments.
We’re very sorry this slipped our beta testing.

hermodOS 1.71 should fix the issue.

had problems to get the pyramid working as host & midi through.
No Midi Data was forwarded to the midi out of the hermod.
I jumped back to 1.61 and it worked again.
Anybody with similar issues who could confirm this?

Much respect to Squarp, it’s really impressive how they continually keep improving their devices even with such a small team :+1:

thanks squarp for the update!! Muting empty tracks is huge for my workflow, since previously cv/gate inputs would come through if I deleted the current track notes, and there was no way to mute them without unplugging cables. The ability to mute the empty track is so useful!

Also randomizing a selection is great. happy new year!

Actually, just tried it out now and am realizing muting an empty track does not mute the monitoring of incoming cv/gate. Is that the intended behavior @Thibault_Squarp? I guess muting an empty track is mostly useful if you want to create a sequence with the built in hermod buttons and then reveal it all at once?

randomizing a selection working great though, very cool feature.

Yes, muting tracks on hermod only affects the playback of recorded events.
A common workflow to mute “post-fx”, hence also muting monitoring, is to place a CHANCE effect in your last fx slot, with a chance of 0%, and muting/unmuting the CHANCE effect.

This still doesn’t work for me… from the manual:

“Advanced edit mode (+)". You can access it by pressing STEP + the encoder.

Doesn’t do anything or I’m doing it wrong…?

k, moved this to 1.71 … from 1.50, I assume you only placed on 1.50 as it was open, and this was closed - next time, probably best to create a new topic.


this works fine for me

hold STEP then press encoder.
you should then notice step/effects/track/seq buttons light up (dimly) showing advance edit mode. so you can now use encoder to move between steps and buttons to change params.

(this was broken in 1.50, but fixed in 1.60 and above)

what’s your issue…
do you not enter into advance mode? (do buttons light up?)
or it doesn’t work as you expect?

I just searched for the issue and didn’t realise I was posting in a 1.50 thread :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info. I tried again and realised it’s hold STEP then press encoder and then release both :slight_smile:

Makes sense.
