BAM rev 1.4 was posted today.
It adds the following features :
– CC#18 is now working
– TAP to Pre-delay is working & TAP switch is flashing (TAP to reverb is not working in this revision)
– TAP display on/off
– Thru mode (Pre-Delay, Input Gain, Filters and 16-bit AD/DA conversion)

both thru mode is off the hook on drums!10 May 2018 at 22 h 10 min #1380AnonymousInactive
My BAM has the new pass-through mode after updating, but the Tap switch doesn’t flash. Any ideas?21 May 2018 at 10 h 00 min #1387clickclack777Participant
Could you fit in sample rate reduction option to BIM from 44.1Hz, 26040Hz (SP1200), 16Hz, 11Hz, 8Hz down to 4Hz to make the 12-bit AD/DA sound even grittier?5 June 2018 at 10 h 49 min #1400AnonymousInactive
I read about a bam update a long time ago. could you post that one too please?5 June 2018 at 11 h 33 min #1401AnonymousInactive
it‘s on the website now too > support11 June 2018 at 10 h 41 min #1411AnonymousInactive
rate, depth and fback are inactive in thru mode. but i was messing around with the tap tempo (very slow i think) and i got a really nasty sound. so could it be possible to use the delay knob to lower the quality somehow?
and would it be possible to use the lfo in thru mode?30 June 2018 at 14 h 51 min #1442RomanParticipant
Yeah, hitting the tap tempo button while in thru mode gives little moments of degradation. Nice tip!1 July 2018 at 10 h 39 min #1452
Thru mode have no delay at all, so you can’t modulate the pitch with the LFO (but you can use the lowest RANGE setting in normal delay mode for that).
Thru mode was added only for passing sounds to the BIM 12-bit converters, compander and filters without any delay.
About the flashing TAP switch, you now have an option to select-unselect it.1 September 2018 at 15 h 53 min #1495AnonymousInactive
the Tap switch doesn’t flash on my Bam after upgrade. The select-unselect option doesn’t seem to work.
Am I alone ?

I’m a happy new owner of Bam since today.
Already checked it out for a couple of hours and am very pleased with the sound :).
Just one question:
My tap switch flashes and works on pre delay, yet I didn’t get it to work on the reverb time and was confused.
Then I found it on the extra info on the upgrade and in this forum:
“TAP to reverb is not working in this revision”
How come, it seems like such a nice feature? Why was it removed or more importantly: will it come back?
Merci en avance.

The first version of the “tap to reverb time” was not very accurate.
There were a lot of discrepancies between the different algos.
That’s why I removed it. I will work on it, but unfortunatley this fall will be very busy with new OTO products & ideas !

Thanks for the incredibly quick reply.
I understand, nevermind then, and maybe for some time later :).
You’ll do that, good luck and energy working on some nice new stuff!
I hope you / people here won’t beat me to death saying this or at least never talk to me again ;), but I’m kind of a guilty pleasure Glimmer effects fan and even thought you could argue if it fits for the bam, I really miss it and would love to find it in some of the future firmware updates if it’s somehow possible :p…
So much for my “ideas” ;)
Over and out.

It would be nice if midi filtering could be applied on a per-patch basis. When using CC messages from Digitakt’s LFO to control BIM’s delay speed for flanging effects and then change to another patch the delay continues to speed up and slow down as midi filtering seems to be a global parameter. Is it possible to change this?
