Rytm MK2 button issue?


I’m desperately trying to enter the live recording mode to no avail.
Based on the manual to enter live recording mode i have to first hold rec-button and press play for the sequencer to start play and the record button will flash. Most of the time nothing happens when i try the combination, sometimes Rec and Play will lit and stay lit (no flashing of rec button).
I read that there is a rec button bug but compared to the symptoms listet there I have not pad triggering or other unusual behavior when pressing the rec button.
Not sure if I’m doing something wrong, if the there is a typo in the manual or if I have a hardware fault?!

Thanks for your help

Sounds like a hardware issue, though Elektron support will answer you better.

I was afraid of that and somehow hoped it was just stupid me!

Hello everyone, and nice to meet you all :slight_smile:

I m new users in Elektron machin and got my AR MKII today , really happy with the way it sounds amazing but i got a little problem with mine i m gonna explain …

I recommend you contact Elektron support or better yet, your retailer.

Sorry to hear. You‘re not alone, some people on these forums had to exchange/send theirs in. I just got mine back a few days ago after it developed an issue with the pads.

Yep - not good, needs to be replaced - merging with similar thread
