I used to have the Rytm Mki and sold it in order to get the MKii when it came out, but I held off ever since.
I loved the sound and the creative sequencer but I didn’t get a chance to actually incorporate it into a larger music production workflow. I’m thinking about finally picking up the MKii but I’m curious about how well it actually integrates within a DAW based studio setup with other MIDI gear for the purpose of a complete and in depth music production setup.
These days, I really put a lot of value on how fun is the gear to use and how long it takes to go from inspiration to execution. One thing that was really awkward to me is the process of importing samples to the Rytm and the convoluted file management.
So what I’m looking to do is to compose complete works within my DAW (Cubase) using samplers and VIs and use the Rytm as a main tool for anything rhythmic while being slaved to Cubase.
I will never use it on its own and am not looking a live set kind of person. So I’m very curious to hear about your experience with this concept and any pros/cons and gotchas.
