Sorry.... sample import from computer

So I installed transfer
read the manual (but didn’t spend more than half a hour on it)

I understand the digitakt pretty well, It is similar to other boxes…


I have to select the transfer compatible device…
and i cannot select anything

(i also can’t find my digitakt soundcard… maybe it has something to do with this)
and I want to imoport a lot of AMEN…

I hope someone forgives me my noobness, and would like to help me…

In the Transfer two drop-down menus, select Digitakt USB (don’t remember what it says exactly) for both in and out.

Transfer will suggest a destination folder named “060117transfer” or something similar. Then it’s just drag and drop.

I don’t think the DT works as a soundcard yet. Since we don’t have a new Overbridge version. So that explains that.



but my dropdown menus don’t work
nothing appears…:frowning:

what computer OS are you on?
do you see the Digitakt as MIDI device in your DAW/other software?

computer os

What Carl said and double check your firmware version (Digitakt OS 1.01)

Just to make sure… Are you connected via USB? Hub? No hub (that often seems to be problem)?

A question to you guys… Is it still turbo midi sysex transfer? Or is it faster? (Turbo Midi 0.037mb/sec was a pain with the Rytm for me, 1 megabyte took about 25 seconds.)

direct with usb
(only adapter for USB C (since I have the newest macbookpro)

if you open /Applications/Utilities/Audio MiDI
then in the menu, Window > Show MIDI Studio, do you see your Digitakt there?

Hmmm… These are things I don’t understand or know, but wonder if that could be an issue.

@Ess - you are a technical wiz! :heart_eyes_cat: Do you know if USB C w/ adaptor could be an issue?

just checked… yes, I see digitakt there…

with my rytm and A4 this was never a problem…

and in the Transfer app, do you see any other MIDI devices, e.g. your Rytm? Or do the device selection menus simply not show anything?

don;'t know why
but now it suddenly appears…

just clicked around in midi setup



got it

thank you all

when drag n drop it to the Transfer device…
it works very well

once I started my electronic music ‘career’ with Drum And Bass (jungle)
since one year I live in the city I come from
my jungle friends are still active (tomorrow we will see our city mate Icicle live in Doornroosje )
this machine makes me wanna make jungle again
just worked on it yesterday and today, all toghether 1 hour
it is amazing!!! I made baselines, resampled them, beats, vocals…
I have the feeling I can do everything with it I want to…

Well the app measures the speeds in MiBs which is different than MB or Mbits. The max I saw was about 0.25MiBs for samples.
