Thanks Davide – if I copy just the archesim.hex file to my micro SD card, it doesn’t load and arches operates under 1.0.7.
But, if I also copy the autoprog.bcm file, (the one which gives us the crazy lightshow, which I love, by the way) then the firmware loads and I now have 1.0.10.

Hi Davide – I’ve checked a few items with firmware 1.0.10
• Tempo, Sequencer and Trigger Sequencer status and data are now saved with each preset – excellent!
• The problem with the XY pad Hold LEDs coming on randomly seems to have been fixed.
All good…BUT – Arpeggiator status and data is NOT saved with the presets.
Firmware 1.0.10 brings some improvements (thanks!) but there’s still a ways to go…September 3, 2019 at 6:44 pm #12791
Arpeggiator’s note stack is not saved into the preset.
Let me look inside the configuration of the arps.
REGARDING THE UPDATE. You *should* delete the autoprog file from the SD as this will trigger a new reflash (with the light show!!) each time you turn on the arches!November 30, 2019 at 8:02 pm #14829
I’m still having all kinds of problems with the lightstrips in free mode. Recorded movements often can’t be stopped or reset and some lightstrips just stop working after a while. Sometimes after a while, they don’t allow you to record anymore. In fact, I’ve never had a session where some of these problems doesn’t happen.
I really hope this is eventually fixed someday…..December 5, 2019 at 2:51 pm #14836
Yeah, mine has been put back in its box a few months ago now and sits under my desk in the hopes that one day it ends up being something a bit more rugged and useful and reminding me that kickstarters have only ever disappointed me.December 5, 2019 at 4:59 pm #14838
Yes – I’ve been experiencing those same instability problems with ‘free mode’ light strips, e.g. they won’t record. They can only be fixed with a power re-cycle.December 9, 2019 at 6:21 pm #14848
I’m begging!!! Please fix all the lightstrips so they work in free mode…
The only reason I bought Arches was for recording finger movements in free mode, and as it stands, it is just not reliable. please help….. please?April 25, 2020 at 3:18 pm #19815
What about the reported bugs which need attention, and the promised functions which don’t work…?
I think it’s time for some social media action.April 27, 2020 at 1:28 pm #20638
Yes, this thing is essentially a piece of garbage as is. I haven’t used it in months. I’ve actually debated literally throwing it in the trash out of principle because seeing it just pisses me off at this point and I can’t sell it with good conscience since it barely works.
What a massive disappointment this experience has been.
At least I’ve learned that I will NEVER support a kickstarter ever again.
Arches sucks.May 29, 2020 at 6:29 pm #23251
Porb – I understand where you are coming from as mine has been gone for months. It started out so good but I think the eurorack/standalone idea just got in the way of very poor design. I never felt comfortable playing it, and would never trust it to perform in a live set. It suffered from poor casing, it needed a proper moulded case that is tactile and feels great to play, a display that was connected physically but just glue gunned on and finally software that worked. To be honest it was a project that was too big for sound machines to do without getting in a trusted partner.
