BM3 keeps on loosing samples, how can I avoid that?

Even though I manually relink missing samples and save, these samples are lost on next re-open...

  • hmmm....

    There's something particular about how you manage your samples and sessions that must be causing this.

    Perhaps you could explain a little more about how you manage your sessions and sample folders. Are you moving folders, using the autosave projects etc.?

  • Open session
    Save as
    Load samples from he files tab or sample audio directly on a pad
    Edit pads
    Rename pads
    Create multiple banks in a session
    Work on arrangement
    Simple save (without ticking any extra options, unless I want to export)

  • No folder moving
    Auto-saved projects are used only if a crash happened

    More error messages this morning:
    Sample not found: /var/mobile/containers/data/application/91

    Any idea?

  • I basically reloaded the sample (that was still present in the samples database (but then why couldn’t BM3 auto-find it?)) and renamed it.
    It seems to have solved the issue.
    In the meantime, more strange behaviour had happened:

  • Hard to tell exactly what's causing the sample to stop prematurely. Perhaps try increasing the polyphony above 3 and see if the problem goes away?

  • I’ve tried that and it didn’t solve anything.
    It seems to have been a singular issue, though. I can’t reproduce the bug.

    If you haven't done so, try using the command that rebuilds the database. That solved some problems for me. I used to get myself into trouble by using the iOS Files app to reorganize things in BM3, but that caused a lot of problems.

  • Thanks for the tip.
    I haven't used anything else than BM3 itself to mange its files, though.
    This is just a bit scary, it leaves me hoping that the app doesn't mess up the whole database or something.
