Status update on Overbridge


#267

I come here everyday hoping to see the Overbridge ETA disclosed… :broken_heart:
Would be great to have at least an idea, if it is going to take 3 months or 3 years… :sob:
I am interested on a DN to pair my DT, but would suck to be unable to multitrack it…

hi, i am also complaining about this overbridge stuff… I bought rhythm half year ago, especially for this computer integration feature… i put the rhythm in the box for now…

I don’t have to have all the plugin stuff with whatever interface and feature they invent… I only want a decent driver to record/monitor the tracks separate into my computer…

why aren’t they start delivering a descent driver and in next iterations all the extra’s? i am software developer myself… why do they want to deliver the complete package at once? in my understanding of software development this is a big mistake of the developer team…

I would advice the development team to split their stack up in components… and deliver at least the minimal stuff in a short time. fix and extend over iterations…

anyways goodluck with development… i keep mine boxed till a version is here… and yes this sucks… whats new?!


#269

No overbridge so you put the AR back in the box ?
I understand that it’s frustrating, I have bought a digitakt hoping to record multitrack more than an year ago.
It’s still on my desk, and yeah it sucks but if I have a good idea for my next track inside my DT I will just record it one track per one track.
They could at least deliver little news more often…
Good luck

well I am this close of selling the darn thing! :angry:


#271

your rytm already works without OB!
You can start right now with programming patterns and when OB arrives you‘re ready to stream you individual outs …


#272

Start working with it. Make beats. Be awesome.

Multitrack it later when OB works.


#274

Optimism, I like it :smiley:


#275

My a4mkii and digitone are currently in their boxes in my closest awaiting a sale…

Having them out is like having a picture of all the people who hurt you in your studio. It’s just too painful.


#276

That’s actually not a bad idea. I might have to try that.


#277

dewey cox has to think about his whole life before he goes on stage


#278

whilst you are tucking your 1500 drum machines in a closet - there are people touring the world who made music on their phones.

You don’t need overbridge to make music.


#279

You’re right, I don’t. I’m using other devices that actually work as advertised and I’m much happier tbh.


#280

I went with Elektron to get away from the computer. I not sure I really want Overbridge. I’ll probably end up on YouTube watching other people play synths I don’t even want.

When I want to record into Ableton i just do tracks individually - works pretty nicely…


#281

Dude, Elektron products really don’t seem to be for you. Good call moving on


#282

While I agree with your sentiment who exactly is touring with music they made on their phone


#283

#284

I make tons of music on my ipad, I don’t doubt that but never been successful using my phone. Maybe when bm3 comes to iphone


#286

Yeah…not only is an ipad NOT a phone… the comment reads exactly “ALMOST entirely created with an ipad” meaning they used an ipad, but also used other things.

Not sure what the point is of stating that people are “touring the world on music made with their phone”. You can make an album using nothing but your voice.

All I care about is that I enjoy the process. 1 night I could be completely happy using nothing but a K.O. po-33. Another night I might do nothing but collect field recordings outside. Another night I’ll play with the field recordings & snippets of sounds from my vinyl collection on an MPC. Last week my brother & I jammed out; he was beatboxing & shaking shakers, while I played with a xylophone & freestyle rapped. We had a blast. No electronics needed.

Some people require OB to enjoy the process…I don’t, but I get it. It’s more enjoyable when you get the results you want without being frustrated thru-out the process.


#287

Exactly. And I would like to think that as adults we can all be like “I don’t need it” “I do need it” “this whole process is what frustrates me more than needing it or not needing it” and not attack or belittle each other for our opinions. Especially those who are frustrated. Wasting time dealing with technical problems is time not spent making music, and as creators, people could be a bit more empathetic to the fact that there are creative people who have manufacturer made roadblocks to their creativity with no end in sight. And Basically all Elektron has said is wait or get out basically, which is a really shitty way to do business imo.


#288

Well put.
What’s right for you may not be what’s right for me, but there isn’t anything wrong with that.
& even though I don’t use OB or want OB (never know tho, could want it in the future) I look at Elektron differently now due to how they marketed OB. I understand why they did it, their purpose is to make money, it’s the purpose of most companies out there. But I think they went about it a little shady. If I buy another product of theirs it will be for what it does, not what they say it will do in the future. In a nut shell I don’t trust them.
