Hi, just spent a while putting this together, due to the fact that I just unboxed a Model D that was in firmware v1.0.7, and was only really able to find the release notes for v1.1.1.

Hopefully this’ll be of some use to someone in the future:

1.0.3 (25 January 2018)

Addressed Issues:

  1. Set the pitch CV to zero volt after power on.
  2. Improve the accuracy of Mode Wheel

1.0.5. (02 March 2018)

Addressed Issues:

  1. Boot loader updated to work with Windows 10.
  2. Fixed issue when holding two notes, releasing a note re-triggers the filter envelope.
  3. Fixed issue with transpose not working after receiving the correct sysEx command.
  4. Fixed issue with pitch bend not functioning without a note on input.

Now, the real question is, what was new in v1.0.7? And why aren’t these just online for everyone to see?
