One month after I owned my Digitakt I had projects full of patterns - and I wanted to assemble a project for a live set from them: But there is no easy way to do that: Copying patterns is very tedious, and error prone, finding duplicate sounds, or unused samples nearly impossible. — Two years later, my machine is even more full…
Now you can do it all!
Announcing the beta 1 release of
elk-herd 3.0 beta 1: https://electric.kitchen/crunch/elk-herd/beta/
The big new feature is Project Import which let’s you pick patterns, sample slots, and sounds from one project and import them into another.
- You can just pick the patterns you want. Any needed sample slots and sound pool items will be imported as well.
- If sample slots or sound pool items already exist in the destination project, they’ll be used (so no wasted space with duplicates).
This release also includes help which launches as a separate page so you can keep it open and refer to it. Check it out and learn all about phantom items there…
- Be aware of LFO Dest set to Sample Slot (in the track or plock’d): If you rearrange the sample pool, you have to know which samples need to be kept next to each other.
- There are still problems with using
elk-herdon Linux due to known Chromium browser bugs. I’m still trying to work out a work around.
You can report bugs here, or if you have a github account in the elk-herd-project repo.
