EXT :wink:


#224

This machine does not fail to make me feel miserable :joy:


#225

Don’t worry, I think we all got that kind of moments several times. I also had the EXT > WTF, no moving knobs!


#226

I’m glad i could fix the no audio issue. But unfortunately the freeze issue keeps happening randomly ; it just happened now when i was just playing the song in Arr Mode.

Any ideas what to check ?


#227

Saw this a topic about freezing, just disconnect the USB cable to test, will observe the next days if it makes difference.

USB caused mine to crash a lot until I removed the cable entirely. Only plug it in when needed now."

Check test mode and post results if they look skewy.

Else; backup the entire card to computer then reformat the card; and copy back. If you had corrupt sectors on the CF card, that could cause a File I/O exception which could manifest as a freeze due to handling within the Read operation.

I wish my OT had bugs sometimes…I’d have something besides me to blame :angry:

Ruined about 5 hours of work today because I made a stupid yet catastrophic mistake…started salvaging parts and actually, I like this jam too.

Well…


#232

Coincidence or not, since i disconnected the USB cable i (knock on wood) don’t have any freeze episodes.

Anyway, i will do what you suggested if the problem happens again; i’m curious about this test mode, how can i run it ?


#233

Hold Function + power on, press trig 1.
After results, move the crossfader / buttons / knobs / trigs and watch the pretty lights. :slight_smile:


#234

Did this, everything showed Ok. Thanks for the info :slight_smile:

I created a new project on the Octa and the Rytm. I’m programming drums on the Rytm. I hit play on the Octa, so the Rytm plays too. But everytime i plays STOP on the Octa, the filter envelope of track 9 in Rytm goes to to -64 ! What i should do to avoid such bizarre thing ?


#236

Any CC set in midi tracks?


#237

Not that i’m aware of… Still searching, everytime i press stop, the filter env goes to -64 and i have to manually turn it back to 0 :confounded:


#238

I just found out the problem happens only when i press stop TWICE on the Octa. As soon as the second stop press is done, the filter env of Track 9 on my Rytm goes to -64… Any ideas ?


#239

Try to double stop with all midi tracks muted to check if it behave the same.

Is AR filter env CC77 ?
Do you use midi tracks with same channel as AR T9?
Can you install a midi monitor software?


#240

Bingo ! With all Midi tracks muted, the problem won’t happen. So i could find the Midi track 2 is the one who is sending the message and messing up the filter envelope. And guess what, track 2 on my Octa has Midi channel 9 and the affected Rytm’s track is… 9 !

Why is this happening ? How can i fix ?

Thank you very much @sezare56 , i’m your fan :smiley:


#241

So what’s on that track? Any CC (77)?


#242

I’m using this track to sequence an OB6 synth. I’m using some CCs to control OB6’s params like cutoff, resonance and so on, but as far as i know none of them are 77.

Anyway even if i was using 77, i would like the Rytm not receive these CCs. I suppose if i simply change Rytm’s track 9 Midi channel will fix the issue, right ?


#243

Yeah, or change OB6’s channel.
You can also disable CC receive on AR if you don’t use them.
