    Hi to all,
    I’m really sorry for the late answer. I agree it’s useless to create a forum if we never answer to it !
    We have changed few things with the forum, and we now receive an alert when there’s a new post.
    So we should be more responsive in the future.
    Sorry again, OTO is a small 2 people company, and time passes very quickly !
    About BAM, we’ll add this week a bug list and the latest revision with the upgrade procedure on the support page. I’ll check the mix bug when loading presets (maybe linked to the AUX mode) and let you know.
    All the best,
    Denis

    Hi,
    Thanks to all for your encouraging words !
    This week we’ll finalize the order of the first batch of BOUM with the electronics factory.
    We should know the price and an estimated release date in the next days.

    The specs are almost definitive :

    Pots :
    – One knob compressor (Threshold, Ration and Make-up Gain on one pot) from no compression to negative ratios Mid position is a limiter (inf:1), max is something like 0.1:1
    – Drive : Gain after the compressor, from 0 db to 60 dB, depending on the “disto” setting
    – Filter : 12dB/Oct., non-resonant Hi-Cut filter from 50Hz to 20kHz
    – Level

    Parameters :
    – Input Gain : 0, +6, +12 and +18 dB
    – Attack and release (6 parameter each). The first attack setting is quasi-instant
    – Lo Cut filter : 6dB/Oct. Flat, 75Hz, 150Hz, 300Hz
    – Disto : Boost (soft clipper), Tube (well, an emulation!), Fuzz and Square (called a comparator distortion)
    – Gate : Noise gate, from “No” to “-10db” (to create gated effects)

    BOUM is 100% analog unit (even the side-chain) but will be MIDI controllable.
    All the best,
    Denis

    Hi,
    Biscuit needs a 9 volts power supply with an AC output, and not DC like the standard power supply adapters.
    The specs of the Biscuit’s power adapter are :

    Out : 9 volts AC output – 0.5 Amps (500 mA) or more – 2.1 mm round plug

    You can buy this kind of power adapter in electronic stores or on eBay.
    We can also sell you one. You can send us an email for pricing with shipping costs.

    Bonjour,
    Vous voulez synchroniser le temps de délai ?
    Il suffit de cocher la synchronisation MIDI dans les préférences Ableton et de vérifier que le filtre “Clock to Time” du BIM n’est pas activé (page 18 du manuel). La LED ne doit pas clignoter.
    Cordialement,
    Denis

    Hi,
    It seems to be a bug.
    Do you use BAM with the Active “AUX” setting and/or preset “LOCAL” on ?

    in reply to: BIM freeze out of sync #602

    Hi,
    I’ll check that. Maybe it’s linked to the OFFSET setting.
    Try to set the OFFSET to one.
    About the FREEZE, I’m thinking of adding more features on a future revision (available this year).
    I was thinking of allowing some switches to be active when the freeze is on, like : twice the speed, half the speed, reverse/forward, half the size…
    Don’t hesitate to share your ideas !
    All the best,
    Denis

    Hi,
    Is it an audio or a MIDI feedback ?
    If it’s an audio feedback, it can be a problem with the audio interface or Ableton Live settings.
    Try to send a sound to Biscuit from another output from your soundcard than the input (i.e. outs 3&4 and inputs 1&2).

    Hi,
    When BIM is synced with MIDI Beat Clock, the DELAY pot and the RANGE parameter cannot be modified.
    When BIM receive a MIDI Beat Clock, it automatically change the DELAY pot position and the RANGE parameter to apply the correct delay time. The other CCs (pots and parameters) should work well.
    If not, check the MIDI channel.
    All the best,

    Hi,
    Timeline and Nemesis are a full digital DSP based unit, unlike BIM which is mostly an analog FX (the sound is converted in 12-bit only for the delay function, but input gain, compression, filters, feedback are full analog).
    So we cannot modify the signal path with a firmware upgrade. It will need complex a hardware modification.
    All the best,

    Hi,
    Did you try a system reset ?
    Press ACTIVE and TAP switches while powering BAM.
    Please tell me if it works.
    The problem could also occurs with out of phase TRS cables (tip and ring inverted).
    All the best,

    Hi Matthew,
    Biscuit have a small 8-bit microcontroller inside. It’s not powerful enough to do some frequency recognition necessary for sample tracking.
    About a Biscuit guitar stompbox : I’m finishing BOUM at the moment, and I already have projects for 2017. I don’t have time to work on a guitar stompbox, sorry !

    Hi,
    Unfortunately, the 4 new FXs from revision 1.2 have no CCs assigned.
    It was a limitation of the Biscuit firmware space (I prefered to put more FXs but without MIDI control).
    All the best,
    Denis

    Hi,
    Did you try to engage the Local MIDI filter (page 30 of the User Manual) to avoid MIDI loops ?

    Thanks for the idea !
    I will think of it, but I’m not sure if it’s possible to implement that.
    BIM only accept Beat Clock for synchronisation.

    Hi,
    Next batch of BAMs is planned for mid-october (we should release the units at the end of september, but we need two weeks for testing and shipping).
    2 others batches are already planned for 2017.
    Thanks!
