Hello Ray i not say don’t use loops, i say to my point of view using loops in the RYTM is not ideal, doable (because Start and End point so you can take something) But using Loops the normal way like in a real sampler with time-stretching, slices etc… make the sampler more suited for that, it’s more comfortable.
Why should this not be utilised ? I don’t really understand your point!
Again read me better… i don’t say that.
I understand people should want to use the RYTM as a groovebox and it’s possible. I just said because how it is, a drum machine with a very simple sample player on top, where the materials is uploaded via midi on a small +Drive capacity… You must first have that technical and Gear Design in mind and then, FILL it the most appropriate way. I just hints here people for what i do think it’s one appropriate way … That doesn’t mean there is not other appropriate way also…
Elektron sell sample packs for it
Dälek Soundscapes = 47,7 mo / Futur House = 10,3 mo / Legowelt Studio = 6,9 mo / True Trance = 20,2 mo … To take complete Sample Pack (not only Drums)
if we compared now UNDRGRND Sounds Warehouse Techno = 888,9 mo / Vengeance EC5 = 5,33 GB / Sample Magic SM101 - Layers and Textures 2 = 242 mo / abitdeeper real deep chords = 1,08 GB
Of course after Batch Convert size dropped quite a bit …
but from simple math here we can say firstly you can’t upload every of those third parties sample pack which is over the 1GB +Drive capacities … And for more small Sample Pack it would be obvious to me to upload only materials you really want to try, use, test or whatever … Interesting materials … Rather to think the Analog Rytm as a computer with a HardDrive attached to it where you can save your whole sample libraries.
No criticism, mockery, I do not even say you do not use it properly … with all due respect, I just give advice after people do what they want!
I do not even make me the Elektron Devil Advocate, i would say the same for another device with a close design… Sample Player on Top, upload via over usb midi, small to medium drive capacity.
