Just got the heat. Love it sonically, but I’m finding that the overbridge implementation leaves a bit to be desired. I just realized that it’s impossible – for me at least – to save presets while in OB mode. When I make some setting changes from an init preset, alter the name, and hit “save”, it brings up the preset list window…but when I select the slot I want and hit “save” again, nothing happens. Neither does my preset save nor does the preset move to the slot I selected, which is the behavior I expected.
Furthermore, it’s also impossible for me to save a preset manually on the machine while in OB. I push and hold the encoder and nothing happens.
I tried it all out in USB-MIDI only and everything works as it should. But I don’t want to have to do this. I will file a support ticket on this, but anyone else have this issue? I would consider myself a heavy OB user, very familiar with it, and generally have flawless operation on my AR and Akeys 99.9% of the time so I doubt this is any way system related.
There’s another somewhat related issue that bumming me out about the AH vis a vis OB which I’ll start another thread on. I know it’s early in its implementation and Elektron will try to iron out bugs ASAP, but I just got this and I’m afraid I’ll have to return it while I’ve still got the chance if this is anything other than user error. Can’t afford to assume it’ll work correctly in the future.
VST in Ableton for me. True…that much does work. And that’s something. Would be enough for me if I only ever wanted to use it on one source per session, but I’m likely to want more. And I have another thread here about problems with using multiple instances.
And still the problem persists. I didn’t know it existed until today when I went to save a preset I’d just spent an hour getting right… hit Save… selected a slot… nothing… selected a slot again (this time with a double click) and bang, my preset defaults back the Init Preset.
