  1. Hi Tom, what are the outstanding issues with the DSS-1 upgrade firmware? I’ve had mine for about 20 months and haven’t noticed anything funky, but I also haven’t been too demanding of it. Would be nice to know what I should look out for. Thanks!

    • The most glaring issue is that some third party DSS-1 disks won’t load correctly due to illegal characters (by FAT16 standards) in the file names. Also, it the mod doesn’t work correctly with some OLED displays. Finally, I found an issue where audio is distorted when you play too many notes near the ‘top key’ of a sample. This appears to be a heat related hardware issue with the custom Korg IC’s. Whether this could be mitigated in software, I don’t know – or if it only happens with the upgraded software.
