Dwarf froze, purple light on centre pedal, totally unresponsive, after between one hour and four one hour and eight minutes using this pedalboard Shaggy parallel bass with full control - MOD Devices
The sound was still coming through both channels, one clean and one with plugins. The GUI was still showing, but although I could delete items from it any changes made on the GUI were not made to the Dwarf. Solved with a reboot. Unfortunately I don’t remember exactly which plugins were active at the time, but I’ll listen to the recording (yes, I was in a session!) and see if I can identify what was being used. I was connected to the GUI using a Bluetooth dongle in the back of the Dwarf.
EDIT: Having listened to the recording I can say that the DS-1 distortion and the DxDigital Delay were both turned on. The signal path was passing through all four effect plugins, but the wah and the SubSynth were turned off. The path was not going from the subsyth to the delay, but straight to the mono dynamics, which as also turned on, and operating as a hard limiter at -12db.
Nothing specific, I was not changing anything, it was the end of a song, I went to change settings and saw that the Dwarf was locked up.
Not to happen again! I don’t know if this was due to the Dwarf itself or one of the plugins, so the solution could be any number of things.
