It works now with the latest 9.1 beta. Not sure why. Anyhow, this thing you made is really awesome. Brilliant.

Question: I did get that error, but it seems to work fine anyway. So, it seems it imports successfully despite the error message. Is that right? Can you confirm?

Thanks!!

Correct. I'm still able to drag it in to a project for my library, despite the error.

Thanks for the reply. It has started crashing again. It crashes about half way through the loading of the samples when I try to drag the drum rack into a Live track. Oh well. :(

I reported the crashes to Ableton.

Can't download :(

After a while I always get a decryption error, no matter if I choose import or download. My browser doesn't indicate any transfering activity at all. What am I doing wrong?

The simpler format edition is simply amazing. Thank you so much!! So delighted to finally play this! And even then, its waaaay beyond my expectations.

One question - Im looking at the simpler racks - how is the FM done??! Is the fm 'hidden' in that its a feature from sampler that carries over? Im expecting to find an effect somewhere thats modulating something, but there seems to be nothing! Its pretty amazing that it even allows that if thats the case. Great effect! Must use it more to modulate things.

Isn't that crazy!? When converting the Samplers to Simplers, it retained the FM parameters of Sampler, somehow, even though they're not viewable in Simpler itself.

A super awesome user by the name of Porter Wood created a version of EDR to include individual outs for each instrument: That's a lot of routing!

Illiac -- first off, huge thanks! This is a great project.

Secondly, a question: I don't actually understand the grouping system. The first rack that appears (the one labelled '4 banks') doesn't seem to do anything. It has a knob that goes from 1 to 127 but what does this rack actually do? I read your manual, and it mentioned something about 4 groups of 16 kits, but sadly I can't figure out how the heck that applies here.... the second rack, with the actual samples, I can scroll through the 127 different racks via the Selector knob, and that seems to work fine. But again, no idea what the first rack is doing there, or how to switch between the alleged 4 banks? Am I missing something obvious? Just hoping to understand better what you've done here :) The samples I've been previewing sound rad though.

thanks!

hi, first off, thanks so much for all your work and for sharing. ok, newbe question. i have never used drum racks. (yea, i know i am nuts or lazy).
but this looked too good to pass up so i downloaded the sampler zip opened it. crashed ableton twice when loading but on third try got it to open. i go to manual and see how to save it to ableton. here is my question. manual says "save the Drum Rack to your Drum Rack folder located in your Live library".
i am not clear on this. since i never used drum racks in ableton i guess i don't have a drum rack folder. so how do i create a folder and where is it stored on my computer? where my packs are or in the EDR folder on my hard drive. sorry for what probably is a dumb question. thanks. mick

mholloway - It's just a midi transpose, you don't have to use it but it makes it easier. Make a new midi clip, scroll all the way down to the first 16 notes and write your pattern. Then use the one knob to select between the 4 main sections (Roland, Classic Drum Machines, Machinedrum, Circuit Bent). It displays to 127 but there are really only 4 settings (I think there is a way to change the macro display so it shows 1-4 instead which would be less confusing). Then the knob on the EDR rack selects the kit within the section. Voila!

micksmuse - Live seems to have a little trouble importing the EDR, I guess just due to the size or number of samples. It took me a couple tries to get it installed. To save a rack to your library click on the (floppy disk icon) save button on the upper right corner of the rack. If you do that with the 4 way selector rack you will see it appear instantly in your browser highlighted, press enter to save it. When you click the save button on the EDR it will take longer (I got the beachball for a while), but when it appears in the browser hit enter and grab a coffee. Live will start importing the samples. In my case it gave up with 33 samples remaining and said something like import failed. Don't worry! Open a new liveset and drag the EDR from your browser onto a track. It will tell you samples are missing click here to look for them. Do the automatic search and drink you coffee will it finds all the samples you already imported (I know, right?). Then, when that's finished and there are still samples missing, drop the samples folder from the EDR liveset you downloaded onto the search folder button and Live will finally save the stragglers to your library. That should do it.
