Eloquencer stuck with weird tempo setting and not responding (bug report)
I am having a big issue with the Eloquencer. For some reason the tempo setting seem to not work as expected and is stuck as seen in the attached image.
It seems to be possible to change the tempo setting but the screen is very slow to accept the new value. Moreover, the clocking is extremely slow, one step every 12 seconds, even if the clock is set as 'INT' and the bpm was set at 130, and there are no clock divisions in the tracks (all step modes are set to FWD). Also, pressing H to tap tempo does not seem to have any effect.
It seems that the whole interface is responding in sync with this undesired 10-seconds-per-step clock. For example, trying to save the project in a new slot is not immediate but I need to wait for this long clock to get the project menu visible, or to get the selection for the new project slot acknowledged.
An hypothesis is data corruption of the specific project I'm using. I don't think it's a defect in the SD card because the same project, copied, displays the same problem. By loading a different project the bug is not there.
Let me know if you need further action from my side to get this bug properly understood.
The project with the problem is 'C14' which I think it's PROJECT_045.elo. I will attach it to this reply so you can inspect it.
Hmm, apparently I cannot attach project files in this forum. If you want you can download it from here: http://frablum.com/static/PROJECT_045.elo
Hi Frablum !
Sorry for late reply ! We were some days out of the office (at last!)
😱 😱 That's really weird !!
I think your hypothesis is 100% right, there is a kind of corruption in that project file. I was going to ask you that specific file but you are quicker than me. 😀
Let me inspect the file and try to fix it.
Ok! I have checked the file and, as you guessed, there was a problem on that file. The header has been corrupted but I think I manage to save some information. You have probably lost some information like 'shuffle' , 'master track config', or scales, but I think the patterns are ok.
If I'm right, you had like 6 or 7 patterns.
Please replace the old _045 with this new one attached
I've sent you the file via e-mail
Thank you so much!!!
Unfortunately another project got corrupted. I didn't do anything weird, saved, then shut my system down after a few seconds, and then restarted it, and the project has again a weird tempo setting and the entire device is almost non-responding.
I might try with a different SD card.
You are probably right, there might be some problem in the SD card.
Please keep me updated.
Did you solve the issue with the new SD card ?
Hi Eloi, I'm going to buy the new SD card soon. Does it need to be of a specific type/size?
As price is related to size, I would say as small as possible, 128Mb is enough, but you won't probably find anything so small.
Known brands can help in terms of durability.
I have been using eleoq for a short time and a few days ago, when saving patterns, a similar problem appeared, crazy tempo and shuffle parameter and the encoder works the other way around, even the "J" pattern appears. This is not on all patterns, I noticed that on 2 or 3 after changing the parameters, it doesn't save the changes to the card. Any change of parameters sometimes works with a slight delay or shows incorrect functions. Please help!
Hi @izo !
Which FW version are you using ? Is this happening just with one specific project or is it happening no matter which project you load ?
The most probable hypothesis is a problem in the SD card.
I use version 1.3.8, probably only on two projects, but I'm not sure yet, on other projects it will seem good but it happened that in the "key rec" position the orange keys (black) shone darker sometimes, while after entering the project the tempo of the song is ok but when you switch to the position on the display, the tempo of the track changes to the previous one and you have to move the encoder one position forward and back to get the tempo back
