As has become tradition, every spring we release a new sound pack for the GR-1.
This is a total of 32 patches that explore most of the GR-1 sonic capabilities. They cover the full spectrum from tranquility up to full-blown chaos. Some of patches feature micro (very small) grains, for phaser like effects, amongst things.

In our ongoing effort for the most stable firmware, we’ve just released GR-1 firmware version 2.4.2. Again this eliminates annoying bugs and glitches in the workflow, especially concerning sampling. It also fixes a sneaky crash, and correctly implements sustain/hold pedal support, finally. All in all, quite a good reason to upgrade, and another step closer to “perfect” stability.

The remaining firmware issues are mostly minor ones. We’ll release a version 2.4.3 that covers those. After this, we’ll start developing version 2.5 with a bunch of new features. We’re open for feature requests. Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org !
To show even more GR-1 support, we’ve completely re-organized the manual, and redone all the illustrations. Download or view GR-1 manual 2.4.4.
That’s all. Until next time!
