Minor Live failure // wrong sample played

I recently played live using the Octa as playback device. I had prepared arrangements for four songs and rehearsed them a number of times at home and at the venue. Everything played as expected.

During the show one track triggered the wrong loop. I had not changed anything since rehearsal. I tried to reload the part, with no success. Since it was another percussion loop no one except me noticed this and I let it play to the end.

Back at home I played through the song again. Everything again played as expected, with all correct samples.

I have read before about a parts bug, but this was just one sample on one track misfiring. Anyone else who have experienced this?
The Octa has 1.30C firmware installed.

It is funny though, I have performed perhaps four times using the Octa and two times I have had problems. (The first one was a major one, with too many static streams causing a freeze/reboot)

I’m not much help here, but did notice you can update to 1.31 here.

Your description what had happened is simply too vague to pinpoint it to any specific bug.

When did the miss-triggering happen? After a part change? After changing to a pattern with another part (includes also switching to a pattern in another bank)? Was a “plays free” track involved?

What is exactly meant by “the wrong loop”? Was it the loop of the previous pattern? A completely random loop? Were sample chains involved? Sound locks? Scenes? The Arranger?

Without steps to reproduce there is pretty much no way this can get fixed :frowning:
Most of the time “bugs” (in any software/hardware) are simply user error, so it would be good to confirm exactly what you did to trigger this!

I heard about a “Live Only” Trig Condition somewhere…
It works all the time, except in live conditions…:thinking:


Thanks! Very good questions. I will try to answer.

Every song/arr, it’s own bank.
This occurred when playing an arr.
A part change happened when the new pattern played (in the same arr) causing the problem.
With loop I mean sample/file.
What is a “plays free track?”

The erroneous sample was from another bank.
No sample locks. No sample chains. No scenes.

Live only trig, huh? :joy:
