1. Sequence data exceeding 218 steps cannot be saved. This has been fixed. This symptom can appear in sequences containing a large number of tracks. Each time a bank key is pressed two steps are used (one for note on, one for note off).
2. When saving to or loading from multiplefloppy disks the sequence data does not load/save properly. This has been fixed.

1. Due to a restriction in the file format of the REMIX 16, a single file exceeding 16Mb can not besaved. For example, if the REMIX 16’s memory is fully expanded to 18Mb (2Mb+ 16Mb) and a single mono sample is recorded for 4min. 52sec., it will not be possible to save. The sample must be trimmed to a length of 4min. 22sec. in order to be saved.

  • Unformatted 2DD floppy disks can not be formatted as 2DD, fixed.
