Copied over because the other forum keeps going down.

Although this has been tested thoroughly here there is a higher than normal possibility for errors and I don't want people to lose work. Please please PLEASE back your work up before fooling around with this OS. Your Projects/Beats may not be retrievable in the case of a critical error

ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR IMPORTANT WORK VIA SYSEX DUMP BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY OS UPDATES!!
Not that we're expecting bad things to happen, but always better safe than sorry. Just remember, you're never going to say to yourself "Man, I wish I hadn't backed that up..."

Currently you must update the OS using the hard MIDI IN port if you have an OS previous to 1.3. OS loads using MIDI over USB work correctly when you update from an OS of 1.3 or later

To check if the OS update was properly installed, select the last option "Show System Information" in the 'System' menu on the Tempest. You should see the OS values displayed for Main, Panel, SAM and each of the 6 Voices.

INSTALLATION NOTE: It is recommended to recalibrate the oscillators and filter after installing a Main OS update. This function can be found in the system menu

WARNING if updating from 1.3.0.10 or earlier: Sequencer data structure has been changed. Any files that are saved in this version are NOT backwards compatible with older versions and may not be retrievable if there is a critical bug somewhere
Added freerunning LFO param to LFO 1 and 2- currently only 'Off' and 'Note' work, 'Beat' and 'Play' will be added soon. Param is in the second page of LFO params
NOTE: This only really works 'correctly' when you have a sound locked to a voice. Otherwise it will get interrupted by any new sounds on the voice
Added beat copy params
Added sound swap mode in copy screen
Added new pedal switch options:
Momentary roll and reverse
Inc/Dec beat
Reset Beat FX
NoteFX 1-4
Encoder 2 now active in 16 Tunings/Sounds/Volumes while roll is on

Beat roll quantize encoder now available in 16 mutes mode
Playlist can now be turned on/off in realtime
When bpm set to slave, play button now active
Fixed bug: "Octave" text not displayed in 16 tunings
Fixed bug: Sound copy mixer settings now include sound type and silent flag (internal)
Fixed bug: Sound copy NoteFX not working
Fixed bug: Sounds not holding over beat transitions

Fixed bug: Certain pad reset behavior could result in hung MIDI notes
Fixed bug: Pedal not controlling reverse correctly
Fixed bug: Some system params not refreshing when system reset done
Fixed bug: Changing from beat mode to sound mode and back to beat mode when slider held gets BeatFX stuck
Fixed bug: VCA release values >= 124 causing stuck notes


Main OS 1.3.1.12

WARNING if updating from 1.3.0.10 or earlier: Sequencer data structure has been changed. Any files that are saved in this version are NOT backwards compatible with older versions and may not be retrievable if there is a critical bug somewhere
Added beatFX destination of Beat Roll No Triplets that controls beat roll without passing through the triplet values
Fixed bug: Beat roll using slider causing sync issues
Fixed bug: Note entry in 16 time steps not inputting velocity correctly
Fixed bug: Arp not responding to fixed level on


Main OS 1.3.1.11

WARNING if updating from 1.3.0.10 or earlier: Sequencer data structure has been changed. Any files that are saved in this version are NOT backwards compatible with older versions and may not be retrievable if there is a critical bug somewhere
While in copy sound mode, hitting the same pad twice now swaps the sound in layer A with the one in layer B, including any of the soft encoder copy flag params
Fixed bug: Global param reset causing all globals to be set to incorrect values
Fixed bug: FF/Rewind causing reset to playlist beat even when playlist off
Fixed bug: On beat transitions, first MIDI note to sequencer not played
Fixed bug: Some cases where MIDI sequencer out not sending note offs causing hung notes
Fixed bug: Incoming SPP messages not setting sequencer to correct place

Main OS 1.3.1.6

WARNING if updating from 1.3.0.10 or earlier: Sequencer data structure has been changed. Any files that are saved in this version are NOT backwards compatible with older versions and may not be retrievable if there is a critical bug somewhere
Added arpeggiator modes to roll behavior as follows:
When roll active and in 16 tunings/levels/sounds pad function, soft encoders change to roll parameters
New roll (arp) params are mode (Retrig, Up, Down, Up/Down, Random, Assign) and octaves (0-2)
Retrig mode acts identically to current roll mode
Added copy modes in copy pending screen
4 params added to soft encoders in copy pending screen to select which params are copied when you copy a sound
Sound selects whether sound params are copied
Seq selects whether sequence is copied from one pad to another (NOTE: like sound params this clears the sequencer of the destination pad. In the case that there are already 8 note events in a particular step, that note event will not be copied)
NoteFX selects whether Note FX assignments (not the Note FX sequences) are copied
Mixer selects whether the mixer parameters are copied
Added BeatFX to CC on main MIDI channel as follows:
CC# 12 - Distortion
CC# 13 - Compression
CC# 19 - a value other than 0 reverts Beat FX params to defaults
CC# 20 - Beat FX All Osc Frequency
CC# 21 - Beat FX Feedback
CC# 22 - Beat FX Lowpass Filter Cutoff
CC# 23 - Beat FX Lowpass Filter Resonance
CC# 24 - Beat FX Lowpass Filter Audio Mod
CC# 25 - Beat FX Highpass Filter Cutoff
CC# 26 - Beat FX All Env Attack
CC# 27 - Beat FX All Env Decay
Mute/Solo toggle no longer cuts off tails from notes triggered by the sequencer
Added quantize encoder to 16 tunings screen
Switched soft encoder assignments in 16 tunings pad mode moving scale to 4th encoder so 1st encoder is consistently quantize amount across all pad modes
Fixed bug: Hung notes from ADSR notes with delay
Fixed bug: All Mute Off not turning mute off for both A and B sound banks
Fixed bug: USB MIDI channel not handled correctly causing odd MIDI behavior in some cases
Fixed bug: Removed unused flag from Note Event param list


Main OS 1.3.0.12

WARNING: Sequencer data structure has been changed. Any files that are saved in this version are NOT backwards compatible with older versions and may not be retrievable if there is a critical bug somewhere
Extended bar count to 8 bars per beat
Added new quantize value of 'Off' which allows unquantized recording that automatically populates the 'delay time' variable based on when the step was recorded
Note that there are not advanced editing features at this time so there is no easy way to quantize everything at once. This will be added in a later version
Added system variable for Mute/Solo behavior that allows you to mute only the sequencer or have it mute/solo both sequencer and live playback
Added system variable for Sound Slider Mode allowing you to control sounds with the sliders in realtime
Note: This does not change recording the params, they are still step only
Sounds now hold over beat transitions
Added numbers to sample list for Osc 3/4
Added quick navigation through categories in Osc 3/4 sample selection: hold 'shift' and use the shape or soft encoder assigned to shape to navigate through categories
Improved pot hysteresis when pad function changed and pot has not been touched
Fixed bug: Sequencer out incorrectly stealing a voice
Note: For now, any sound assigned to the MIDI Sequencer channel does not trigger sounds in the Tempest, only external
Fixed bug: SPP handling incorrect
