I found an number of .aif files (kits and synths) from op1.fun, but noticed that a few failed to load. A few (some of the drum kits), caused my OP-1 to freeze when shifting from Disk mode back to OP-1 mode after dropping them on the OP-1.
- Switch to disk mode.
- Drag/drop folder into the OP1 drive as it shows up in Windows explorer, in the drums or synth folder.
- Switch to OP-1. OP-1 disconnects and begins loading patches, as viewed in the OP-1 window messages.
- In some cases, after a number of Synth patches and Kit patches load, the message updates in the OP-1 screen ‘freeze’ on particular drum kits. You have to restart the OP-1 and start over.
I removed a few of the drum kits, re-ran the above steps, and everything loaded fine. I thought at first that I had too many samples, but stayed well below the recommended #s on this guide here: user_manual_op1_essentials_sample.pdf
I recommend working with a maximum of 25 samples and a
maximum of 20 drumkits. The total number of samples and kits you can successfully import in the OP-1 varies according to the size of the individual kits and samples.
- Has anyone determined the actual numbers or total size of samples that can be loaded?
- Does anyone know what sort of file formatting/tagging etc. might cause it to fail (short of it being longer than the 12 second or 6 second duration limit)?
- Does anyone know how to test the .aif files before trying to load them up?
Thanks in advance.
