Hey, I recently have been trying to dig into my first elektron machine and it’s blown me away how much more intuitive things are than working in Ableton. However, I like the idea of being able to use whatever machine I learn inside out in a live setting and I think I might have made a mistake by getting the none UW-Drive+. As far as I have been able to figure out, p-locks and adjustments to perameter settings are not saved in either song mode or as saved kits . I learned this the hard way after discovering my many hours of tweaking things just right vanished when I reloaded the saved kits/songs. Is it only possible to save this information with the +drive models via snapshots? I would hate to invest more time into this thing and not be able to use it live the way I would like - being able to recall and load patters/songs with the perameters adjusted and modulated the way I intended. The only work around I can see (which could be fruitful) would be to work on one song at a time and record everything into the DAW and keep it saved there. But that means no live further live tweaking.
My second issue is that sometimes I must be pressing some combination related to “pattern selections” that erases or changes my current set without being able to get back. Super annoying to have worked hard on something and then it disappears for no reason (or perhaps my lack of knowledge). Anyone have any ideas what I might be doing and why whatever I was doing suddenly becomes not recallable? An example would be I was working on a pattern with a custom kit and suddenly it vanishes and a TRX kit is taken it’s place and the patterns are now gone.
anyways, hope someone can help I have had difficulty finding info online.
