Recently, the glide time on my Volca Bass went really slow (like, one second to reach the next note played portamento). Of course, I tried turning it off and on again. I messed around with the (all of two) glide settings on the machine, and installed different versions of firmware.
Nothing worked, so I took it in to the shop where I bought it. They swapped it for their shop display unit, which was working fine. Happy!
…Until I got home and connected it to my rig - on the first notes I played, I got the same problem! Another Volca bass with glide broken
I can only surmise that this issue is being caused by some routing I did in Midihub. Here is the file: Midihub 2020.09.09 22.12.47 (Preset 1).mhp (1.2 KB). The 8th pipeline is running into the Volca Bass (midi channel 4).
If anyone can share any insight (into both the cause of the problem and how I can fix my Volca), it would be much appreciated.
EDIT: I discovered that playing a sequence on the Volca’s internal sequencer fixes the problem. Not sure if anyone else will encounter this issue, but that is the solution!
