I ‘m pretty sure I was also editing chords when this happened… It’s a bit of a pain and I’m thinking to sell the Zaq since my BCR knobs are starting to play up and I just don’t like the pastic clunkiness of the thing.
Maybe we need to reach out to Uli Behringer (he hangs out at gearlsutz forums apparently) and ask him to re-make the BCR with better quality knobs and a metal case…

I enclosed the BCR2000 in a custom panel quite soon (RK2000) because the original design is indeed eherm… an acquired taste…. I also changed every encoder to solid detent-encoders but I would not recommend it to anyone because the BCR2000 PCB traces are just too feeble to survive properly. However: I now have the sequencer I want (apart from the note hanging…)
As I understand Zaquencer has already been demod to Behringer but they were not interested?March 7, 2018 at 6:40 pm #6128
What are the detented encoders you used? I know a highly qualified service tech who can do the job…

Ah… no suprise there. I doubt they even understood what the use for such a device would be.
Howevever, Uli himself can be reached and he’s supposedly a synth enthusiast.March 8, 2018 at 7:33 am #6135
but – coming back to the extra note-on without note-off bug. I do not have it only when sending chords. Now it happens too when editing note height on a pattern. I use a sequencer start on step 4 and end it on step 8 and suddenly it appears again.
Actually at the rate these note hangs are happening I’m surprised Christian has not experienced it, I really hope it is not a hardware quirk….March 9, 2018 at 11:01 am #6138
ok I have uploaded the beta version with the “all note off” functionality here:
Just like the regular versions, this will only work if your Zaquencer is already authorized of course.
With this version, you can press “page < " and "page >” simultaneously and the Zaquencer will then send all note offs for the midi channels of the 4 tracks (not all 16 midi channels as that would have been too much traffic and is unnecessary).
I know this is a workaround, but I hope that this will help with the “stuck note bug”.March 9, 2018 at 1:12 pm #6139
thanks for the beta! (any other features included?
FYI I had the hanging note at the beginning of using the zaq, and haven’t had it since around the time of updgrading to 1.5. I use the zaq pretty much every day.

Hi Christian, thanks so much for the beta. I sometimes have hanging notes, but it’s not a big problem. I’m having a lot of fun with my Zaquencer. Keep up the good work

will try out the new beta RC 1.51 soon. i get hanging notes on various synths and softsynths quite frequently, never quite knew whether it was because of my zaquencers or my usb2midi and audio interfaces.
i will have to do some tests, but i have in the times that i tried my zaquencers with the synplant vst always had a hanging note there, which is why i stopped using synplant for the time being.
ever since i’ve noticed this occuring i kinda wished there were a midi all notes off command on the zaquencer, so I’ll definitely give the new release candidate a spin, to see if that helps…
edit: also thrilled to see that there is still some development going on!
sort of off-topic, but Christian, may I suggest again that something like ‘chain’ flashes briefly in the display when the zaquencer successfully registers a patter chain command for the next version?
some of my buttons only work some of the time or if pressed hard and i sometimes don’t know whether a pattern chain i tried to input actually got registered by my zaquencers…

okay, so i’ve installed 1.51 on one of my zaquencers and the note off command works fine, but for now i haven’t had a reason to use it, as i haven’t encountered any hanging notes, anymore…
must have been something in the old patterns i was using. i used to use the wave generator a lot to create notes on the zaq and mostly it happened when i did that. i kinda stopped using it because of that for the time being.
might have to try doing that again to see if i encounter any hanging notes. so far none…April 30, 2018 at 11:13 am #6200
I don’t think it’s the CC wave, never used it and had the problem pretty frequently. I do however switch pattern length a lot on the fly, 32 steps, 3 steps, 16steps, etc…April 30, 2018 at 3:46 pm #6201
@Gerrit: CC wave? it’s for all kinds of parameters on the zaquencer, not just cc. I’m not saying it’s tied to the wave generator, but that it occurred quite frequently when i used it, especially with ratcheting and delay (just a guess, actually).
Since we’ve sort of established that hanging notes do occur, it’s actually quite likely that it’ll happen when using the wave generator, too. Emphasis on the too.
Btw, sort of off-topic, Gerrit, are you the guy behind the rk-002? If yes, I wrote you an email a few weeks ago, because I was interested in the cable for my volca fm. However, since I’m not entirely dawless anyway, I’ve cooked up/asked/searched about for a software solution and found three that work for me, so for the time being I won’t be getting an rk-002.
although it’s good to know that it works with the zaquencer.
