Status update on Overbridge


#329

lol ok, enjoy!


#330

Serious. Cant wait till all this shit goes ether, ONE fucking wire routable ANYWHERE. or better yet. Wireless!

Wires are a fucking mess
Done with that shit. Killing my mixer cut my wire hell in half!

Also losing a bunch gear helped too :frowning:


#331

Well, I am with you on the hatred of wire clutter. But… it’s sometime a necessary evil, no? All it takes is a look at setups thread on here or gearslutz, etc. All these glorious pedals and rack units and old analog boards. That’s some incredible sounding, hands-on, fun boxes that feel mighty lonely if you just plug straight into Ableton, or user’s DAW of choice. Think of the children damn it!


#332

No pedals here. Prefer boxes to patchbay. Less junk kicking about. More funtionality on rack fx + well mapped controller. :slight_smile:

Yes wires sadly ARE a neccessary evil. But cmon…lets move forward.


#333

Haha, okay then. I’ll take the multi-out Digitakt Pro in 2020 and you can have your totally wireless Digitakt Pro mkII in 2024. :grinning:


#334

Tite!


#335

of course what you are staying is correct, to a point. i was informed that the Digitakt was ‘Overbridge Enabled’. I checked the website to read more about this function, sounded great.

What i didn’t know is that the Digitakt needed a firmware upgrade and Overbridge 2.0 hadn’t launched.

My bad, i should have delved deeper into the wording on the Elektron website.

This was my first purchase of Elektron, i had no idea of the past issues with Overbridge 1. If the website (and reviews) had been clearer about the Overbridge 2 status my decision to purchase would have been more informed.

After my purchase I realised OB2 wouldn’t be released until late 2017. I was prepared to wait. Then we had an update informing the release would be Feb2018, this has passed. Now we have nothing.

I do use the machine everyday, I jam on it, do improvised live performance. It’s great fun. What i would like to do is record the live performance using the promised 8 outputs and tidy up the recording, make some adjustments in the DAW and share a finished project with others. That’s my workflow. That’s why OB2 is important to me.

DT is no pro grade sampler.

  • Mono
  • No ind. Outs.
  • Other minor things

Maybe that is it: expectations in a thing without proper info gathering before buying.

I’ m not saying DT is not a great piece of gear. Just not what some who bought it expect it be be.

So, any status update on Overbridge ?

.


#339

Yes, it will be released on the 32nd.


#340

Just pretend I’m an Elektron official, because they’ll tell you the same thing:

We’re still working hard on Overbridge- it’s our top priority. We understand and are sorry for your frustration. We are doing everything within our abilities to bring Overbridge to you as soon as possible


#341

This question wasn’t expecting any ( serious ) answer but thanks anyway…


#342

meanwhile, on the 32nd:


#343

I respectfully disagree on these points.

-mono yes, but it’s specifically a drum sampler, and other than overheads (and even then, not always) drums are tracked in mono. it can handle larger melodic/harmonic samples but this is mostly an add on feature…geared toward a certain crowd of stoned bedroom composers/youtube stars.
-Sure it doesn’t have Ind. outs, but it will once OB is released. So that’s that.
-all pieces of gear have minor annoyances. key word ‘minor’

lol

#345

Respectfully :

Because it’s mono ? :smile:
Because it’s written on it ?
I think you can use a sampler as you like.


#346

Mine slapped me on the wrist when I tried to load it with a guitar sample…


#347

My dt doesn’t mind the ridiculously long samples I throw into it. I guess there are those that adhere to labels on the box and some that don’t.


#348

Lucky…
