I have to say this, the support from the OXI people is second to none!

Just picked up one of these from a fellow wiggler. Was a bit hesitant to get in with the crowdfunding phase - the loopop video didn't hugely impress me. But I've been following this for a while, and the 2.0 firmware release definitely convinced me to pick one of these. Especially after seeing the stochastic sequencer...hoping this might kill my GAS for the unobtainium SIG eurorack module. :party:

If only the stochiastic mode could also harmonize to a chord track, man that would be killer! I hope they are working on it. - fingers crossed - :hail:

I briefly wired it up to my Mac (bc it arrived when I was working), appeared to set it up as a midi instrument on Logic Pro (tbf I don't use Logic at all, I have it for legacy reasons, I'm all OTB I have no fuckin idea what I'm doing), it triggered F# three times, in varying octaves, no matter which 'kb setting' buttons I pressed, and then crashed (all lights went static). Happened three times, then I stopped!

I've just finished marking, I should probably go upstairs and use it for its actual purpose (OBVIOUSLY modular) 😂

Fantastic feel to it! Woof.
Hi! I have passed by this comment and read that your OXI One freezed several times :cry:
That should not be happening, maybe a problem with USB and Logic? I can't tell from here, but please do report this kind of stuff in our forum!!
I can even send you a debug firmware version that could tell us what is happening

Is it working fine with Eurorack?

You'd have to double check as I don't know entirely how the product works, but I think that's how it is: plug uhost directly into the iPad.
You can message CME for specifics, he's been in contact with OXI as both products complement each other.
Thanks. All I meant is checking that you meant to connect the Uhost to iPad, not to connect it to Oxi's usb/trs.
Exactly, the problem is iOS doesn't prioritize the MIDI ble connection and thus we have lots of lag even if we are using an iPhone 15.
Widi Host connects to the iPad by USB and the OXI One - WIDI bluetooth connection works flawlessly.
You can even power the WIDI UHost with a wall adaptor and then power the iPad with the WIDI Host USB C port!

BTW; just released the 2.4b3 with USB MIDI Host support.
Quite a few devices like ROLI and Arturia Keystep and Keystep 37 are already working fine!

I couldn't test it but an Ansible user told me it works with it as well.
Then I wonder what I‘m doing wrong as my Ansible does not recognize Oxi when in Grid mode.
I'm sorry but I cannot help you further on this. Maybe ansible still relies on the old USB COM implementation that was done with FTDI chips...

Hi I have a question. I want to sync my Pamela's New Workout to the OXI ONE sequencer. Pamela's new workout expects a 24 PPQN clock input and a RUN/STOP signal. I can see in the config menu that I can set both of these options. However - there is only one CLK CV output. I'm guessing this is a TRS output that sends out both CLK and RUN/STOP, similar to the Beatstep Pro? If that's correct, can you confirm whether the CLK is on tip or ring, and RUN/STOP is on which one?

Thanks very much!

It is correct! Clock is Tip and Start/Stop is Ring 🙂

Latest firmware adds the option to have the bipolar cv and gate status displayed, or leave it as before.

just want to confirm that i'm not missing something in the manual.

it looks like when you record a sequence, the oxi only records the notes, and not any cc events. is that correct?

not a huge complaint - but that would sure be nice if it could pick up the cc events (hah - especially the poly aftertouch), since it can send cc separately. hoping maybe that is in the offing for down the road.

very much enjoy learning how to use this. Like any complex instrument, it's one thing to go through and try this and that, but it's another (at least for me) to get comfortable with the various options so that i don't have to think too hard and can just play. I do have a fondness for companies that make interesting sequencers, so i much appreciate the dedication that has gone into this.

I'm having a fabulous time with this sequencer! I feel like most things are pretty intuitive and it's easy & fun to throw down ideas!

I seem to be having some trouble copying an existing pattern to an adjacent slot in the arranger Memory Access (top half).

I expected to be able to hold copy and press the source pattern, then hold paste and press a pattern to overwrite... Or even simply hold the source Memory Access button and press an adjacent one like we do to add these patterns to the Arranger Lanes?

Not only do these not seem to work, but nothing else I can conjure even after reading the manual seems to do it.

Maybe someone can help set me straight on this? Thanks !

Another great tutorial by SynthDad.



Just to mention there are 8 pages for the sequencers and MOD lanes, not 4, total 128 steps.

I'll implement this asap!
Is not that trivial to implement this feature withtout affecting playback, that's why it's getting delayed.

Ah, that explains it! Thanks for the info, manuwind. Here's hoping it's feasible enough. Looking forward to having that one.

And thanks again for this incredible sequencer. I love how it can tie together my desktop machines and eurorack so nicely!

Latest beta 2.6 adds the following:

• Time bend per sequencer
• Timing offset per sequencer in milliseconds
• Prog Change and Bank select per pattern (not implemented into the arranger yet)
• Reset after X bars (only UI, not implemented yet )
• 2x LFOs per sequencer
• Output selection for MIDI data
• Dynamic unison or LRU selection for voice allocation of cv (pitch, vel and trig env) and gate … (really cool, in analog config settings)
• New mode (not implemented)

would that new mode be Samchillian related?
enquiring minds (who are waiting for their OXI ONE to arrive) want to know.
After watching the video, I think this format is definitely missing the true potential of the engine. I have built the barebones engine with 4 voices of poly and it really shines with both an expressive MIDI controller and an expressive sound engine, like a good lead classical instrument has. I tested it with TAQS.IM Solo and I have to say It's really fun, specially playing chords with several stacks of notes / poly (not like the preset chords shown extensively in the video), Loopop only showcases that very briefly saying you can play two notes at once (I suppose you can play 3) and depends on timing, like my engine does. IME that's the fun part!

Just tested out a new OXI One and Oxi Pipe, and there are some hardware issues (probably returning my Pipe, haven't decided on the One). First, one of my gate outputs on the Oxi One simply doesn't work (check the OXI bug forum, I'm not alone). That's not a killer for me as there are 8 gate outputs. However, the Oxi Pipe, which connects to the Oxi One via a mini HDMI cable (supplied), has some issues with random gates not working (put the mini HDMI in again, and the set of random not working gates changes, so it is the cable jacks and not the jacks on the Oxi Pipe that create the problem). Suggested fix is to try a different cable. I did, and a different random set of gates didn't work. With the mini HDMI cable connected, I picked up the OXI One and then set it back down, and the set of random non-working gates changed (so simple cable tension in one of the HDMI cable sockets seems to be the issue). I have a third mini HDMI cable coming tomorrow, if that doesn't fix the issue, back goes the Oxi Pipe.

Hahah good catch, unfortunately I'm not the dev, neither working at OXI. The engine I built was on TouchDesigner to quickly test it using this :buchla:
However I spoke with Manu (dev) about the possibility of adding Samchillian-like engine to a new mode or an existent one.
IME the engine is about performing, not so much sequencing, so it'd make sense as a keyboard, or keyboard modifier.
I do believe OXI is a nice format for Samchillian engine, adding the dynamic CVs and the extensive modulation capabilities both CV and MIDI,
or hosting a MIDI controller and have OXI as Samchillianizer. Time will tell.

The new mode will be related with a limbless reptile :wink:
