I am afraid that you must go through the usb update procedure. Don´t worry though. Get the usb pdf help file and take your time. Windows or mac?Quote:I also think having the current edit mode act globally for all pages won’t mean a great loss in functionality, and will keep things more intuitive.
Exactly! Good you brought that one up again.Quote:I *really* don’t want to lose Berlin mode, though.
Agree. Actually I find that the Berlin mode (aka EDIT PERFORM state) is what I always wanted the EDIT state to be like.
So may I propose, that the new EDIT PERFORM state (Berlin) takes the place of EDIT state, and we go back to having the EDIT button switch between two states. The old EDIT state could be reached by holding some other button while pressing EDIT.
How do you like that guys?

Having a modifier button to use when entering "berlin" EDIT mode would seem to work better, that way the mode doesn’t interfere with the workflow we have grown accustom to.
Thanks ripe for chiming in. It is good to hear that I am not the only "old" user who is not happy about the extra mode. "Too much thinking" is exactly how I feel about it. Your idea about using a modifier button to enter "berlin" seems fine.
All this fancy stuff is cool, but how about the original question of this thread:
The ability to (at once) set all tracks of one page to a given tempo multiplier.
For some reason this 2 year old thread has been ressurected. It might be a bit confusing if you don´t notice the dates.
Have you set the LEN value of the track to 9? This is the "center" or zero position where the track LEN value does not alter the step values.
If the recorded notes are quantized (originally) you also want to quantize them in the Octo. Do this by turning track STA to zero.

Pushing EDIT will cycle you through the modes. The EDIT led will light accordingly so you can tell one mode from the other. I am not at the Octo, but I think the one refered to as "Berlin" would be the third mode.
Haha, there are so many modes that I am not quite sure what you are talking about here. Just to make clear: I am talking about the different coulours and blinking patterns of the EDIT button light.
To analyze a bit:
Before: There was two EDIT modes. If I was not in the right mode, I knew that one press on EDIT and I was in the right mode.
Now: There are three EDIT modes (actually four), which you cycle through. If I am not in the right mode I have to click EDIT and watch the LED to have the right colour. That does not sound like a big deal, but for me that is a whole different ballgame. Something that my brain interprets as a 400% increase in complexity.
Ah, I managed the usb update from a pc. There were a few guesses I had to do, but at least I now have a procedure that I think I can repeat if things should go bad some other time.
Good to have the Octo back to life!
Good! And you did EXACTLY as the (very nice) instruction says? Same terminal software etc?
I am just sooo not keen on trying it on windows, unless somebody could totally walk me through.
Has anybody been able to update OS via usb, using a mac?
It is good to hear.
I have previously had the same "unrecognized image type" error using a mac to do the usb update procedure. But I must admit I had to give up just installing the driver on my pc.
I am certainly not looking forward to do the usb thing on pc, but I suppose it can be done.
I tried to upgrade from the newest of the betas. (1.61.08 I suppose).Quote:Am I safe to upgrade to the new version?
I would stick to that beta for a while .

I have to say the exact same thing happened to me.
Until we know more about this, I would suggest to everybody NOT to install OS 1.62
