      Hey everyone,

      I recently got my cosmos and definitely love it, however I noticed that when using the Delay Modes that the recorded buffers are loosing its pitch over time, i.e. the pitch of the recorded material is drifting up.

      Is this to be expected ? If so, kind of annoying when trying to play alongside the recorded buffers 🙁

      Any help is much appreciated!

      Best regards
      Sebastian

        Edit:

        Sorry I was mistaken. The Delay Modes are working just fine, it is only the Reverb (3 Mode) which shows the mentioned behavior. This might be due to the delay line modulations and therefor unavoidable, at least that’s my assumption.

          Just bought one and discovered i have the same issue. Over a 5 minute period it drifts up 50 cents, a full quarter tone, and then drops back to 20 cents above the original. I’ll be returning mine as I can’t play along with sustained notes that are a so out of tune. Sad face, as I love some of the features. This is a total show stopper for me.

              I can confirm this, yes cosmos “drifts” after a few minutes. I just detune guitar or master pitch on synth if I need to continue, in most cases I rerecord b/c the reverb algo is mush-i after a while 🙂

                This is normal behavior due to how Cosmos delays work, no solution exists unfortunately.

                  I came to report the same problem. I find this very complicated to work on long drones with the reverb algorithm. @SomaLabs besides the fact that this cannot be addressed, is there any workaround to mitigate this? For example setting the feedback to a certain amount so that the trails fade away before noticing the drift? Is there any of the three reverb algorithms that is less affected by this long term “modulation” in pitch?

                      Can anyone confirm that the pitch issue is through all of Cosmos firmware’s?
