Digitone + Overbridge + Cubase


#1

WARNING !!!

Hello there fellow elektronauts. I like many of you was very stoked to finally be able to use the Overbridge VST that was released a few days ago!

However this is what happened to me (in my ignorance)
I fiddled about with the VST and liked all the enchanting visually synced stuff. Very nice!

Then i went ‘look mum no computer’ offline making some tracks/ideas + controlling a few external midi modules from within the box using up the 4 extra midi tracks of the Digitone. Awesome feature!!!

!!! now the WARNING part !!!

I wanted to record those silly parts into my DAW cubase (9.5 Pro) but when i synced the Digitone and opened up my Digitone template ALL MY OFFLINE WORK WAS GONE !!! (oh, nooooooo…+ wilhelm scream)

Seems the 'Total Recall" in the VST was enabled and erased all my fiddlings in the Hardware to a previously connected session with the VST!!! (Dammit!)

FEATURE REQUESTS:

1) a save button in the VST and instead of an automatic Total Recall, i would love to see a Snapshot button + a Load/Save Snapshot option to Recall past sessions & iterations and have more control over my screwups.

2) Also, i’m a bit slow when it comes to remembering every button combination and therefore sometimes by accident i erase the wrong tracks/parts when playing around in the box. Maybe it’s already there and i just haven’t figured it out yet? > an UNDO function?

3) A SONG writing mode would also be nice
( Like e.g. the old Roland MC505)

stringing of patterns with tracks T1-T4 on/off etc + Save
(or better even: being able to trigger individual tracks from different patterns alltogether like T1 from Bank 2 PTN 5 + T2 from Bank 6 PTN 4 and so on… somewhat like an old music tracker did. I can draw you a picture if you like?)

Dont want to sound like a forever whining twat but has anybody figured out the proper settings for setting up DigitoneOverbridge + W10 + Cubase 9.5+ I’m getting some doubling, feedback loops and glitches. :frowning:
some help here would be very much appreciated.

Digitone is without mentioning an awesome little beastie!
(Saving up for a Digitakt before running out of stock)

Thanks!

I’m on the same version of Cubase and is hoping to explore the new Overbridge stuff this week. Thank you for the heads up. I guess I’ll sysex-dump the whole thing before messing too much with total recalls :slight_smile:

Hi there,

That’s probably a good idea :slight_smile:

A heads up on Cubase if you might have missed it:

There’s a 30th year anniversary 50% off offer on upgrading to Cubase 10 right now (50,-) till 7th of June.

Cheers!

Tested Overbridge with Cubase this morning before I went to work, damn that mutitracking over USB is neat :slight_smile:
