I understand the perspective, frustration, and expectations that should naturally occur if you previously owned an MDUW.
However, much of the frustration seems to stem from expectation, not what was actually offered.
I get it, you can compare the RYTM to many modern things and start feeling left out, OR you can compare it to other things and feel pretty good about it.
Reminds me of the Tempest a bit with many people expecting to load samples on it, discussing how easy it would be to do it if the code was open source, and then DSI stirring the pot a bit by vaguely mentioning it might be possible.
They didn’t sell a bunch of RYTM MKI’s because the sales pitch boasted high speed sample transfers and some state of the art app to go along with it. Yeah, it would definitely be nice to have all of that, but for now C6 or SDS (drag and drop) is what we got, and those do work. Sure C6 is slow & buggy, but it does work.
Again, as I stated earlier, I’ve had all the same issues with transferring files to RYTM using C6.
For some strange reason the last time I was struggling with failed loading, suddenly things worked.
I loaded 250 loops on to the RYTM with zero errors, then continued to load batches and batches of stuff.
Granted, it took about a week, but I was at work or sleeping most of the time anyways, AND I was still able to work on a project while the samples were being loaded.
I’m not saying there is no cause for frustration, I’m saying some of the expectations around here seem really odd.
