I have now had my shiny new MP11 for almost 3 weeks and I just love it, as I still am exploring some of its features since this is a first foray for me in the DP world.
However a possible issue seems to have appeared only in the last few days with respect to sustain pedal release; I did a quick search on this forum to see if someone else might have remarked on this but it does not appear to be the case. (apologies if I missed it)
When I initially power on the DP, select a sound and then start playing, when I press the sustain pedal the notes are correctly sustained but upon releasing the pedal, the "off" function does not seem to behave correctly as it it can take several seconds before things come back to normal (damped). Meanwhile whatever I am playing becomes an audio "blur". This happens with partial as well as full pedaling, and only started recently.
At first I suspected perhaps a weak spring (mechanical), but I actually have enough time to physically verify that the pedal is indeed fully up while the blurred sounds are still present. Interestingly, this issue developed gradually: at first this would occur for the first one or two times I would depress the pedal and then the issue would totally disappear, but with each passing day it seems to be getting worse. This morning it persisted for at least 5-10 minutes after initial power on. Once things are back to normal, so far everything is then fine for the rest of the playing session.
A note which may or may not be related: I did notice on occasion (but not always) a very faint clicking sound as I just start to depress the sustain pedal, and before hearing the damper resonance. This comes through in presence of played notes. It may be normal and does not bother me as it is in the background, but the fact that I do not always perceive it makes me wonder whether it could also be related, so I thought I would mention it.
I did notice that there seems to be adjustments for the sustain pedal in the Virtual Technician menus but have not looked into great details yet. Perhaps there is something I could verify? Any other new MP11 owners noticed anything similar? Indeed at first, I thought it was just a glitch that corrected itself after self adjustment/calibration, but now I am starting to wonder as this behavior is now more persistent.
I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts.
