Keys doubling at random?

edited April 2017 in General
Edit: I think I'm just not used to the sensitivity of the keys. I've learned to adapt to it and haven't noticed as much. I've been switching between the OP-1 and a Micron, so there's a huge difference in the types of keys. That may be throwing me off.

  • Sounds like MIDI echo. Try it without the USB plugged in.
  • You positive you don't have a sequencer triggering with each key press?
  • Tried with nothing plugged in, same issue. Sequencer was my first thought and I verified it was not on either.

    Is it every key?
    I had some double triggering or sustain issue on a couple of keys ,for a while ,but it did clear up. Like dust or something.
  • I get some doubling. Depends on where I hit the keys.
  • Ie. Hit em in the middle (white ones) not on the edge.
  • Thanks guys. It doesn't seem to matter where I hit on the key or which key it is (though I heavily favor the very left key (for kickdrum) when using the drum mode. Just got an email back from TE support this morning asking for serial number, so I'll respond to them with that tonight after work.
  • I think mine does this once in a while. It also randomly triggers the sequencer sometimes when I'm playing chords.
  • Yeah I got that one.
  • Yeah I got that one.
    So just playing in the keys for a while and it went away? Or did you have to use air duster spray or something?
  • aaaand TE support says my OP-1 is not under warranty anymore and suggested I go through iFixIt to order a new keyboard and swap the keys... ugh. :-( Why does something so expensive break so easily with such little usage? Dang.
  • Does it happen on every key or just some specific ones?

    You might follow the iFixit guide to take them out the ones which have the behavior and clean them
  • Happening on any of the keys, not just specific ones. To me it seems a different issue than keys needing replaced but I was hoping they'd tell me they heard of the issue before and knew how else to resolve it.
  • Oh dang, that sure doesn't sound like the problem is the keyboard itself. It makes sense to suspect that replacing the keyboard might not resolve the issue.
    Make sure the people from TE do understand this!
  • Does it happen on a particular synth engine or on all engines/patches?

    CB
  • Happened on multiple drum patches I tried and on the various synth patches I tried
  • Maybe you could try to reset your OP-1 to factory settings
  • Maybe you could try to reset your OP-1 to factory settings
    Thank you for the suggestion! I will back up what's on there and try that this weekend.
  • Stupid questions, but:

    1. Sure the master FX isn't engaged?
    2. Sure the sequencer isn't engaged?
    3. Sure the master LFO isn't engaged?
  • Sure the master LFO isn't engaged?
    WAT?
  • yes I made sure everything was off. it's not even every time i hit a key, it happens at random.

    Oh, yeah. Haha.

    I am having this exact problems on two(!) new OP-1 I recently bought. I wrote to TE to ask if it could depend on usage, or some firmware bug that needs to be fixed. If curious, take a look at the problem:

  • The question is how often it repeats randomly. Mine does it sometimes as well, especially when hitting them harder.
    So is it every second time, every 10th or less or more?

  • it does that not very frequently. Is it something that settles after a while?

  • Yes mine settled after a while.
    Haven't noticed it come back yet.

  • @superandrew did you manage to sort this issue I have just received an op 1 and it is doing the exact same thing, it is very annoying as you never no what it is going to do it gets in the way of playing it in an enjoyable way, I am going to phone the retailer today maybe send it back

    @Louis14 I've been there. After returning one I ordered another which had the same behaviour. I decide to keep it and after a while the problem seemed to be less present. I mean, it is always there in certain conditions but it is barely noticeable. You probably change your playing technique, you begin finding other ways to do stuff, you use more the pattern sequencer for drums. With this of course I don't mean that yours might not be malfunctioning or have some hardware problems, just telling my experience which was very frustrating at first but then it settled in some way.

  • @superandrew, I kind of guessed that it might be a bit of a quirk of the op-1 I think I might find a work around as I do really like the machine as it is a lot of fun to just make sounds on.
