FAQ question_answer

  • I'm having troubles making my DB-01 respond to midi from any sequencer. I've set correct channels on both devices, but it didn't trigger any sound.
    If you want to trigger notes with external keyboard or sequencer via MIDI- you have to set your D-Bass unit to keyboard ( shift+play) or arpeggiator (shift+arpegg) mode.
  • Sequencer of my DB-01 unit is not running. Pushing play does nothing. I can play the synth in keyboard mode but the arpeggiator and sequencer do nothing. Am I missing something?
    Please check if your DB unit is running on internal clock. Go to settings ( shift + config) -> with select/ gate encoder go to CLOCK- select INT- ( internal) Now the sequencer should run.
  • My DB-01 is not tracking pitch correctly.
    For analogue oscillators to track pitch well over the octaves - you need to warm them up for ~20-30 min. Then you go to settings ( shift+config) go to CAL and press Select/Gate encoder. Now your DB unit goes trough calibration process. After this it should track well over the octaves.
