Volume knob weirdness?

Volume knob weirdness?

Postby soundsubs » Thu Dec 06, 2018 4:35 pm

Just got my One. Loving it so far.
The volume knob (output) is strange. At 12 o'clock, the One is dead silent, no sound, even on INIT patch.
At 10, the One is completely overdriven and distorted. Anyone else?

Could be a pot calibration thing I suppose.

Is the Headphone volume behaving the same way?

I played a Moog One in store and that's what the headphone jack was doing. It was really weird but perhaps the volume is exponential instead of linear? Hence why it cuts in and out so quickly and aggressively at full volume. I still don't have my unit yet, but I look forward to hearing what others' experience with this has been.

Hi Toom,

Have you installed the latest Firmware 1.0.2?

If not do so. Not that there's something specific in there about the volume knob,
it's just an easy way to clean out any old cobwebs.

FIRST - Save your custom presets to a thumb drive on the LIBRARY page.

Follow the included directions for installing v1.0.2.

It's also IMPORTANT to create a new USER SPACE by pressing SETTINGS, then the
LIBRARY soft button, then EDIT USER SPACE, then highlight the + + + +
and press the big knob. Choose CREATE FACTORY.

This will ensure that you have the latest presets that best jibe with any
changes or new features. If you have your own presets, just load them into the new User Space.
