Analog Rytm MK 2 Freezes!


#41

Ah shit my pad mutes have been weird is that a hardware issue was hoping it’s software


#42

Mine is constantly lagging hope it’s a software bug


#43

I’ll one up y’all. I upgraded from firmware B, because it was failing to boot up, to firmware C. It worked for a few hours now it refuses to boot. Even with Func+Boot, does nothing and even when waiting a long while, doesn’t even cold boot anymore. Super disappointed, see video link


#44

Oh man, that’s bad! That momentary flicker reminds me of the effect that failing capacitors had on some older (non-Elektron) boxes I’ve owned.

Hope it’s still under warranty. Good luck.


#45

It’s a known hardware issue. Neither Elektron or the retailer has any qualms about sending a replacement. There are some crazy pad videos form other users with similar issues somewhere on the forum.


#46

Oh dammit guess I will back everything up and put a ticket in shiet


#47

On my second mk 2 unit keeps freezing on me, is this a hardware or a software issues ? I’ll be sending mine back Monday hopefully next one is ok


#48

I need to backup my AR2. Is there a backup mode that will backup ALL projects/kits/sounds in one process, or do you have you backup each project individually?


#49

Mine only freezes very occasionally when browsing and prelistening sounds/samples very fast. Someone recognize this?


#50

Mine doesn’t freeze per se, but if I’m scrolling through the sample list in a project while playing back, often the AR will just close the sample select screen before I actually select a sample. Usually at the end of a pattern strangely.


#51

i got new one. First was send them back for change. 2 weeks running perfect. today set os 04c and after half an hour freezes! Damn! what to think???


#52

I returned my Mk2 Rytm. I had freezing in firmware B and total boot failures in firmware C, so many times in my short time with it. It’s not ready for commercial use and I certainly would never take it on stage. It’s disappointing because the A4 is rock solid. I don’t think it’s hardware dependent, but there’s something wrong with the software.


#53

Yeah, kind of a bummer for sure. Had mine freeze on me twice yesterday for no reason, not the kind of thing I want to trust live yet.


#54

This is not good to read. I bought a new Rytm MkII (and sold my rock-solid MkI to pay for it) just before moving house a month or so ago, but haven’t been able to spend any time with it yet. I hope I’m not in for a rude surprise! I don’t play out, so a freeze won’t hobble my work, but I do hope it’s not due to faulty hardware and can be fixed in a firmware update.


#55

I submitted a ticket today asking if this is hardware related or if they think it will/can be fixed with a firmware update. I experienced the weird freeze behaviour again today after two hours of use. The rytm gets pretty warm I might add, was this the same with the MKI?


#56

I 've had 3 freezes in 4 months. Pattern keeps sounding but all controls stop responding. Needs a reboot to function again. Have been told by Elektron support it sounds like a hardware fault and I should return the unit to the shop.


#57

Bummer. Hate the idea of sending it back, waiting, only with the chance that the replacement device may have the same issue. Perhaps it was a faulty batch? Anyone any info on this? Or any people without any freezes whatsoever? Ha, those are generally nog the folks on this forum haha.


#58

Send it back and tell the retailer you want it exchanged for a brand new factory sealed unit. I think some retailers may be recycling their returned units.


#59

Mine does this too. It’s getting to be annoying.


#60

Yeah, mine has done it 3 more times this morning alone. Sadly I think I will have to return the ARmkII, this is just not working out well for me. :frowning:
