Hi there! I’m trying to figure out if I’m losing my mind or if something happened with the Shapeshifter 2.x firmware updates.
I’m almost certain that OSC 2, when you pressed the Quant button, would produce frequencies at integer ratios of OSC 1. E.g. 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, etc. It would produce the harmonic series.
Now it seems like it skips a lot of the ratios. For example, tune OSC 1 to a “C” note. Turn on Quant (single press) and monitor OSC 2 while turning the Ratio knob. I would expect to hear notes from OSC 2: C G C E G Bb C, etc with additional scale notes being added as the octaves increase. But no matter how far I turn the knob up through the octaves, all I hear now are C E and G notes.
Did something happen here?
Edit: to help clarify, here’s a recording. The first sequence is from my ER-301 with it changing the frequency of an oscillator in rational intervals, 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, etc. up to around 24:1. After the brief silence is what the Shapeshifter is doing to OSC 2 as I turn the quantized ratio knob now.
