Project complete backup?


#42

I’m wondering about this too. Is there a way to backup ALL projects on my AR2 in one save, or do I have to do a backup for every single project?


#43

solved by closing google chrome on my PC.


#44

so, is that the solution for have a samples backup? did anyone do it?


#45

Looks like you can now easily move samples to and from your RYTM mkI and mkII using the Elektron Transfer application. Not sure how to keep the samples with the project data - still using c6 to backup projects over sysex on my mkI

Hi,

On the Octatrack i backup my projects by activating USB disk mode and copying everyting on the CF card to my backup media.

On the Rytm / Digitone , how can i backup everyting related to my projects ?

Thanks

I think the fact you can’t backup your project or import kits with samples makes this machine a piece of junk.
It’s really a shame as I really like this machine but I think knowing this limitation i’m going to hit it with a sledgehammer.
The whole point of having hardware over a computer is that it makes things quicker and easier and more tactile , this just makes a computer look really attractive again and makes you question why the hell you would want to put yourself through this stress when you can literally press one button for save on a DAW and everything is saved.

Elektron are one of the most frustrating companies in existence.
The worst things for me they have done are this with the RYTM.
No midi in to slice on the Octactrack.
No pattern export on the A4.

I’m trying to backup my project and here is what i’m doing :

1 - Open C6 on the Mac
2 - Go to ‘Config’ and certify both Midi In / Out are with ‘Analog Rytm’
3 - Go to Rytm’s Global > Sysex Dump > Sysex Send, then click on ‘WHOLE PROJECT’, YES
4 - Click on ‘Receive’ on C6

Although Rytm shows a flashing ‘Sending’ , C6 only shows ‘Receiving 0 bytes’ and not happens.

Any hints ?

Thanks !

Any hints please ? I currently have more than 1 month of work with no backup, so i’m starting to get worried…

Thanks !

  1. C6 needs to be in receive mode BEFORE sending sysex from AR.
  2. Turn off TURBO in C6 if it still doesn’t work

Tried it, but same result, no data is received by C6… I even tried to plug the Rytm directly on the USB port instead of using a USB hub, but same result, as the screenshot below… Any ideas ?

-on Rytm, in Globals, MIDI Port Config, are input and output set to usb only?

Or

-try midimonitor to see if anything’s reaching the computer at all: https://www.snoize.com/MIDIMonitor/

Or

-Bad USB cable?

Make sure AR is NOT in Overbridge mode.


#56

Bingo, it was set to Midi only… Thank you :smiley:

It’s working now but how do i know how much time will it take to finish ? It’s pretty slow…
