This is my very first post here.
I just acquired a pre-built 2nd hand Ambika : great little device, love it !
everything seems to work as expected, apart from 1 weird thing that fries my brain.
I can only play 10 notes in an octave. The notes are perfectly in tune, I’m just missing 2 notes in every octave. So if I want to play an octave, I have to play 10 notes up in stead of 12. There are 2 places where a note is “stolen”, and everything just shifts from there on (but stays in tune). It feel like it’s some kind of weird keyboard mapping or scaling, because it’s on all 6 voices, all the time.
To explain what’s going on, this is what I hear when I press the keys
C4 = C4
C#4 = C#4
D4 = D4
D#4 = D#4
E4 = F4 (so the E is missing and replaced by an F)
F4 = F#4
F#4 = G4
G4 = G#4
G#4 = A4
A4 = B4 (another missing note, and everything shits another half note from there)
A#4 = C5
It’s just super weird and not usable in a normal musical way. Any thoughts on what could cause this ? I tried resetting the firmware (hold S1 while switching on), but that didn’t change it.
And I did try different MIDI keyboards to make sure it’s not the keyboard.
Could the MIDI interface be acting up ?
Any help much appreciated.
