normal Encoder problem with the new units.

After the last issue downgrading which makes me not able to receive midi messages or sync, I returned the blofeld white and a I picked a black one.

Although the white one had the same problem, I though I needed to read better the manual and maybe I was not being conscious on some parameters. But this behaviour is not normal.

The encoder which controls cutoff, waveform shapes, attack... does not work properly. I don't think this is related with the encoder itself, and maybe can be a bad interaction with software/hardware.
I recorded a video where you can see the issue.
I contacted recently in a blofeld facebook group with some people who is having this same problem with the units which have the 1.24 preinstalled from factory (white and black desktop units).

I was wondering if you have received more incidences like this and if there is a solution. Here in Spain, the local stores have 15 days to return, so If not, I will return the unit next friday. But I'm afraid that all the units are affected.

Here is the video. This is not like the dirty encoders problem...

Hi, I've got a new desktop unit with 1.24 (white) but I'm not experiencing any issues with encoders at all.

Nice to hear that... then not all the units are affected after all... I will return the unit anyway since I dont receive a reply from Waldorf.

Finally I returned this unit and I bought again a new white one. I bought to another store.

It's affected too.

Nowadays, I've seen more than 7 later 2017 units with the same encoder problem. With my own eyes.

Waldorf is ignoring me through mail.

This is a shame.

I don't think it is the encoders, I think it is the OS1.24.
I have noticed some weird stuff as I upgraded from 1.22 to 1.24.
But prior to this, I experienced no problems.
