    Ok, if I'm understanding it correctly, I just loaded a Bm1 file, and realized that it can't be backward compatible because of the fundamental differences within the two sequencers.. But kits load fine as the structure of the pads are similar.. I could be wrong about this cus they say you can, but it seems to make sense to me.. <!-- s:geek: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_geek.gif" alt=":geek:" title="Geek" /><!-- s:geek: -->

    Make sure if its a sample you are looking for that you are not instead setup to look for a kit, cus then you wont see anything! It will be looking for kits files and samples files will not be visible..

    Ahahaha, oh wow, I'm an idiot. Thanks for jumping my memory...!

    Haha! Naw man, it happened to me at first, too! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

    First create an iDRM instument..

    from there, it will take you into the [Kit] folders..hit the green arrow back to go to the top of the folders, and look for your kits in [My Content]

    or

    after hit creat and it takes you into the kit folder, then hit the [X] on the upper left side and exit out, tap the DRM instrument to enter it, then you can hit [LOAD PRESET] from within the DRM...

    Cool. got that....also how do you delete a project?
  • edited 10:23AM
    Go into it,[the Load project, then your project] and hit EDIT FILES... From there you can creat folders and subfolders, and you can also delete foldrs and files.. be careful here..

    I can only load a sample within the kit to a pad and not the whole kit. tried both methods.

    also when i go to track settings to delete a track it won't let me?

    Downloaded in an instant. This stuff is amazing. I'm blown away.

    By the way, for FTP, I was able to click the Bonjour tab in Cyberduck for Mac and it instantly saw my phone and I was able to connect.

    High light the track, and hit the yellow [X] tool at the top right.. before the tool icon..

    Oh wait.. track settings right? If it's the only track, it won't delete, cus the instrument resides there..You'd have to delete the instrument from the home page. now if you add an extra track to that instrument, then those extra tracks can be deleted from the track settings page.. this is normal functionality..

    See you in two years... As good as this app is, I don't expect it to go down for a long time... Well too worth it.. This app is well worth over a hundred dollars.. And if you ever bought an MV8800 or an MPC, then 19.99 is basically free.. <!-- s8-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8-)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8-) -->

    You honestly registered a forum account to complain about the price and brag about pirating the app because you're jailbroken? Classy.

    are you sure that when you're in the DRM, you are at the [PRESET] icon on the top left? And not at the [SAMPLE] icon instead? if so you will only be able to see the the waves that are in the kits.. and not the kits.. Same as kadath..

    from inside instrument,
    and in the [PRESET] section 1st page of 2,
    hit [LOAD PRESET]
    If you too far into a folder already after hitting [LOAD PRESET], hit the green arrow < on left to back out to top.
    From there, go to [My Content]




    And the entry way:

    At Home.. Create instrument.. DRUMSAMPLER
    Press Green arrow to back out back to the top..
    Once there, go into [My Content]
    find your kits...
    Hit LOAD...

    Hi,

    If BM2 crashes, we suggest to reboot your device, it is likely to be a memory exhaust problem.
    As for transferring new files into the app, you must use the integrated FTP server, as the internal
    file database needs to be updated, which is done when exiting the FTP panel.

    Also the user manual is coming soon!

    Cheers,
    Intua Team.

    Fantastic app!

    Btw, is there a way of seeing how much memory or cpu is being used see you don't get into a crashable situation?

    Since I asking stuff, can you import MIDI?... I know you can export, so I was assuming vice-versa?

    No, but we may include these features in a future update!

    Wow i am impressed VERY impressed! thanks intua.
    Been play with it since last night, and most to this morning. one thing i was wondering is can instruments be named? i.e, if i load up an empty drum sampler, on the home page it show the instrument as 1 in the left corner and empty instrument in the right corner. is their any way to name that empty instrument? i know it takes on the name of the 1st sample loaded but i would like to give it a name that makes it easier to find what i am looking for when i have multiple drum samplers loaded.

    Thanks again intua it was a very frustrating wait, but WELL worth it.

    Cheers
    Touchy

    For those who don't have WiFi connection for FTP transfer, this may be the alternative you need...

    http://www.macroplant.com/iphoneexplorer/

    Works wonders, and it seems more of stable transfer than going through the air.. <!-- s:geek: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_geek.gif" alt=":geek:" title="Geek" /><!-- s:geek: --> <!-- s8-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8-)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8-) -->


    Thanks Septimo, a lot better than filezilla! BM2 is blowing me away!

    A few questions...

    How do you change the master volume?
    Can you change the position of fx in the chain?
    Can you save presets for the fx?

    Thanks,

    Im going to answer this but please put all further questions on the BM2 support forum.
    1. On homescreen of BM2 select the mixer (its the knob icon up top)
    From there you can raise the volumeof the different instruments. There's no real master volume as of now.
    2. In the sequencer go to the sequence you wish to alter, then select the "auto" tab on the bottom right. From there find the fx you'd like altered and draw or select to your hearts content <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->
    3. As of now I don't belive you can save fx presets.

    Hope I helped. Again please place all questions in the BM2 support forum. Thanks.
  • Went to Best buy and bought an Ipod Touch 4th generation 8gb just for this. No lie. I'm freaking pumped!

    Well.. just downloaded. pretty awesome, seriously.

    but ughh. tried to migrate all of my bm1 and samples over to bm2 and they all show up, but the projects are playing back all whacked out.. nothing is right.. sample lengths, tuning, all kind of stuff is messed up. it would be really really nice if intua has some sort of migration app or something in order move all of your stuff from bm1 to bm2. for me, i have tons of songs on bm1 that i would like to further develop in bm2. really frustrating. any ideas as to how i can seamlessly move to bm2 with all of my data, samples in tact from bm1? anyone?
