Loading custom saved DMD kit/patch - missing audio file

Tue Nov 24, 2020 12:13 pm

I've been struggling with this for a few months and after lots of Googling - I have not been able to find a solution to this problem.

Here is what is happening:

    1. I create a custom kit for DMD using the "Convert to sampler instrument..." feature in the arrange window. It chops up the samples and assigns each one to its own Quick Sampler and it gets summed up to the DMD channel. So far so good!

    2. Then, I save my custom DMD kit as a User Patch so I can access it from the Library. So far so good!

    3. When I start a new session in Logic and open up the saved patch - the sound is there and I can play it. So far so food!

    4. However (the bad), I can't edit the sample playback because under the Q-Sampler Detail it does not show an audio file loaded. I also checked the underlying Quick Sampler for that instance and the same issue is true. I can play back the sound but the plugin itself does not show that a sample is loaded.

How do I get past this? Is this a bug or am I missing a step somewhere?

Darn! That's a weird bug, thank you for pointing it out!! I was able to reproduce it. I'll report it.

Ah bummer. I was hoping that wasn't the case. DMD is awesome and the ultimate MPC-killer.

It's nice to hear from you, David! It's been a long time! Hope you're doing good!

Hey prospect, I know! And it's good to see you're still active!!! I remember that I used to really enjoy your music back in the day. Any new stuff for me to listen to? :)
