Arturia announces version 1.3 of Origin Now Shipping

Arturia has announced that Firmware version 1.3 for Origin is now shipping.

This new version includes:

  • Jupiter 8 template: The Origin 1.3 firmware embeds the new Jupiter 8 template which recreates the unique voice architecture and design of this legendary analog synthesizer.
  • New play modes:
    • POLY_UNISON: emulates the Jupiter8 "UNISON" mode, that shares up to 8 voices between the currently active notes (Currently not available for MULTI presets).
    • UNISON parameter for MONO programs: allows the user to set the number of voices that will play simultaneously for the MONO program. UNISON "polyphony" can be set to a value between 2 and 8 in SINGLE mode, and is limited to 2 in MULTI mode.
  • Sequencer switch automation: Actions on the Sequencer "LOOP" and "PATTERNS" switches can be recorded as MIDI CONTROL CHANGE messages and replayed.
  • Compressor module: The Origin sounds can now be processed through a brand new compressor FX module. The compressor allows adding dynamics to the sound, from smooth attacks to huge pumping effects.
  • Sample & Hold module: Derived from the ARP S&H. Takes any modulation (LFO, Env, etc.) signal at its inputs and provides a sample and hold modulation signal at its outputs.
  • User Interface enhancements:
    • In a number of dialogs possibility to navigate between the controls and change their value without pre-selecting them.
    • Possibility to select the slot preset to load using the keypad + the edit switch. Previously it was necessary to use the browser to load a slot preset.
    • A new layout of the dialog makes configuration of the "live" macros easier.
    • The user can now define a set of favorite presets and navigate thru them with the Preset Browser.
    • A clear feedback – using speaker icons - of the mute state of a Voice output on the FxMixer page, of the slot output on the Multi page and on the program icon in the preset bar.
    • Possibility to set 2 or more MULTI slots in the hold state in a single action by keeping their "Edit" switches pressed when "Hold" is set ON (or OFF).
  • Portamento glide time: Adding of a second way to manage the portamento glide time: the user can now choose between a constant time for the whole glide, or a constant time per semitone.
  • Switch pedal: It is now possible to configure the switch pedal action in the "Performance" page.

The Origin Firmware 1.3 is available as a free update, and comes embedded in the new Origin Keyboards and Origin Desktops. This upgrade is free for all Origin customers.
