I agree with most things said here.

I get you can make great tunes with all types of gear. Hmmm thats another Pro argument! Loved the feel of the pads, the layout was nice as well and it was easy to get a simple pattern going.

This may have been reported when using earlier software versions than 1. Now held ADSR sounds—whether playing from beats or played live—should never terminate before release. Just another tool in the arsenal. The Analog Rytm, korg electribes, op1, mpc, etc. Leave a Reply Cancel reply.

This is incredible news! We have fixed the problem by locking out edits to the Playlist while it is playing, but edits can still be made while not playing. Why would you feel bad. You would bet your life for example that you can distinguish an analog sound from a sampled one?

Pretty simple thing but turning into cacophony with the Tempest…. Page 27 of that same 1. I am sure trmpest can tell the difference from 16 to 32 bit just by listening for a few seconds. Thats weird cause i think we have reached the point where recording is above the possibilities of human hearing. I will never place my trust or hard cash in any DSI product after this debacle. That is a loooong list of bugs. I own a pro2.


The Tempest is god due to the fact that they were the inventors manuxl it I think however.

It would be a shame if not, as the build quality and performance interface are really superb. However, with only 6 voices, there will still be cases where a sound will be terminated. Now all files within each folder are automatically alphabetized, and newly saved or imported files always appear in the correct alphabetized position. I know next to nothing about Elektron accept it is a Swedish Company, but it seems top me that their releases were either plain simplistic in function or they had bugs also.

Would I try to make due with just a Tempest? Tempest does this by stealing the playing voice with the lowest VCA level, but this can result in recorded ADSR sounds with long durations being terminated before their recorded duration ends. Others had, have and will have great use for it. Between this and the Tetra I was burned twice. The update addresses a variety of bugs and user requests.

Now the Destination Folder in Save screens always defaults to the last folder of that type sound, beat or project that was last saved to or loaded from.

When playing back a recorded sound which has pad pressure assigned as a mod source, the sound is modulated by velocity instead. DSI is not doing us any favors by fixing the bugs.

I have a rytm, tempest, and a machinedrum.

Trust me this the best advice you can get. Tempest sounds too flabby as a drum synth but I like the other non-drum sounds it can make. This thing kicks ass. At this price i expect a relativelely close to flawless product. Best move I never made. I use it primarily for Synth sounds first Drums second and nothing has ever matched it for me at being able to play 6 separate synth sequences and slow down the attack while turning up the decay and adding filter FM to all 6 separate voices simultaneously.


The tempest is a bit different. Unfortunately we feel that legato glide modes on a drum machine are less important than many other priorities, and are sorry to tell you that these features will not be implemented in order for us to prioritize issues of more importance to Tempest users. It may have been fixed by fixing bug 3 above. How many possibilities there are to make music. Did you see all the videos above? All shine in there own way. DSI is not a big company, ask Dave how many people work there.

The flash memory file system has two annoying problems: I recently did an ad spot where I sampled the recorder I played for manusl third grade recital… And it was dope. Both problems are fixed. Is that a way to give pleasure to your clients?

Not a lot compared to many electronic manufacturers. The release is now available as a beta release via the DSI forum. These problems were caused by Tempest needing to instantly recompute playlist data while playing.

Now as for the bug fixes,….
