Is a SD-card included with the module?

  • No, SD-card is not included – (see next note). You can use a card from a phone, a digital camera or similar. We recommend using cards with speed class 10 or higher. 

Do I need a SD-card to use the module?

  • No, the SD-card is optional. Without it, you can record and manipulate sound from a live input. With an SD-card, you can furthermore save the recorded sample to a file on the SD-card as well as load files from the SD-card. You can also use the SD-card to load custom user scales, in scala-file format. 

Can I record directly to SD-card?

  • No. The module is always using internal memory for recording and playing back samples. It does so, to make it possible for the granular engine to read and write samples without latency. With a SD-card it is possible to transfer the content of the internal memory to a file on the SD-card and vice versa. 

How do I transfer files to and from SD-card:

  • Download manual for instructions
  • Use an SD-card with up to 32GB capacity, speed class 10 or higher, formatted as FAT32.
  • Files are in wave format, mono and 16bit/48kHz.
  • Files are split in left and right channel for all banks/slots (this method was chosen to speed up the reading process of loading files into the internal memory).
  • Files are named after the bank, slot and channel.
    E.g.: a1l.wav and a1r.wav corresponds to left and right channel of bank a, slot 1.

Why are saved wav-files only 4 seconds in length?

*Updated May22* This issue have been resolved in firmware version 1.1

  • We have unfortunately discovered an issue on Mac-computers, where saved wave-files appear to have a length of only 4 seconds. This seems to be a issue with the headers of the wave-files saved by Cornflakes. The files still contain the complete saved recordings and Cornflakes will load the saved recordings without issues. The issue seems to be for Mac-systems only.
    We will correct the issue in a firmware update as soon as possible

Unexpected behaviour or audible artefacts when loading (empty) slots:

*Updated May22* This issue have been resolved in firmware version 1.1

  • When the module is booted and no recording or loading of sample from SD-card has taken place, the internal memory will consist of random numbers, resulting in noise when played back.
    This behaviour is set to be changed in a future firmware update.
  • If a SD-card is inserted and an empty slot is loaded after occupied slot has been loaded, the sample will not change or indicate an empty slot/missing stored sample:
    We are aware of the confusing behaviour and will change it in a future firmware update.

Will the module be available in black?

  • Yes! We will soon be able to offer a black faceplate for Cornflakes. It will be available in our own web shop once ready. 

When will your next module come out?

  • We have a couple of modules in prototype phase at the moment, but global supply shortages have made it difficult for us to start production. Our module “Bicycle”,a dual channel looper, will likely be the next module we will launch. We hope to release at least one more module within 2022.

Do I need to hold record button while updating the firmware?

  • No – when the module have been powered up, the record button can be released.
    The guidelines for flashing the firmware was a bit unclear, so the instructions on the firmware page have been updated (July 2022).

How do I clear the buffer?

  • Stop playback and press record to start from scratch (essentially the same as clearing the buffer). The length is determined by the length of the recording (up to the full recording length of 42 seconds). When recording during playback, the audio in the buffer will be replaced, but the length is unchanged.
