So my stomach just turned around a bit…
I’ve been thoroughly backing up projects since 2017 when the Digitakt was released. All in good faith that the backups were succesfull as the C6 software detected data coming in and the size increasing as projects became bigger.
Now I’m trying to backup a couple of seperate patterns from one Digitakt and send them over to my second Digitakt. No dice. The pattern is empty, sample slot is at -1, tune shows ‘error’, and all the parameters are in full left position. Playing the pattern even results in a full freeze.
So I tried backing up and sending an entire project. Same issue. Whole project empty. It’s also acting very strange in that it takes time for all A1 to a16 patterns to load and then B1 until H16 are loaded within a second.
Then, to be sure, I backed up one pattern from a Digitakt and send it to the same Digitakt. Same problem. I am now very afraid that all the backups I have ever done are completely broken. Either that or there is something going wrong on the receiving end.
- First I noticed a midi LFO sending data while backing up, so I disabled it to see if that was the problem: nope
- I have set the midi setings to output only USB and when receiving to USB only input.
- When sending sysex to my laptop it receives data. Each project is about 31kb and a project about 4MB
- Both units run latest beta 1.11OS6
Anybody came across this issue and know how to fix this? I’m completely stumped that this doesn’t work…
