Hey, I’ve run across something that I thought was odd. This is a new S2400 and it has only had the latest Feb 2022 firmware on it.
I created a “kit” and saved it today. I had assigned some pads to choke groups. Then I made a new project and loaded the kit. Once loaded, the choke group in the menu was replaced by alt output. As far as I can tell, you can reproduce it easily by creating a new project and loading a kit.
Hopefully that works okay. I have never tried to upload anything here before. Let me know if it does not work out. Have you ever seen the choke groups turn into alt outputs after loading a previously saved project? I have noticed this happening some other times also, but I have not really paid attention to it and usually just push past the warning screen when I load the project. It makes me wonder if I am enabling something that is causing the issue. Thanks for your attention.
Yes, that’s exactly what happens. I even checked it by creating a new project and loading that kit just before I uploaded it yesterday. And as I mentioned, I have noticed it happening a few other times too, but didn’t really think about it too much at the time. Do you think I should try flashing the current firmware again or adjusting any settings?
I have been going to New Project in the File menu. In Global Settings, under Load@Start, I have Nothing. As I was checking these things just now, I also noticed the following:
Powered on the S2400 - a blank project is there and Choke Groups are present
Loaded the Kit - Alt Output is shown underneath Output
Selected New Project under the File menu - Alt Output is still shown underneath Output
Powered S2400 Off and back On - Choke Group is back again
I have 2 other kits that I made and I just tried loading them and one left Choke Groups exposed while the other changed it to Alt Output.
I was just playing around with a project tonight and saved it. I created a new project and played around with it for a few minutes. Then I loaded the original one that I started with and got this exact message.
The loaded project uses alternate outputs which are no longer supported. Some patterns might play differently than they did with previous firmware versions.
I have seen this message quite a few times and dismissed it, but I wanted to copy it exact and report it here in the thread I started. Please let me know what we can do to solve this.
I looked at my track settings after loading and getting this message and one thing that I notice has changed is that the sounds loaded on pads A6, A7, and A8 were not in choke groups when I saved and now they are. I did assign them to choke group 1 initially and then I changed it back to none. Pads A1 through A5 were all assigned to group 1 and they still are.
I am having almost this exact issue. When loading projects I have created over the last couple of weeks I get the same error message as above upon loading each project. I have not used choke groups in any project, but when I load them up, each pad’s choke group ends up being set to the same number as the output channel. Let me know if you need additional clarification.
