The manual still states that Aeros will auto save loops on stop. However, this appears to have changed in a firmware update.
Last night I got my cable to connect my new beat buddy to aeros. Super inspiring and easy to work with.
However, I didn’t manually save my song and I never exited the loop studio screen. Took a break to eat some dinner and we had a power failure for 30 seconds. Came back and my 4 track, 2 part loop is gone. I lost a couple hours of improvised work that I was very happy with.
Was too frustrated, so left the studio for the night. did some research and it appears Auto Save was removed as a feature. Please bring back Auto Save after stop play - at least as a preference option. I’ve never had a looper that required a specific save feature after a recording. Even the lowly Ditto will remember it’s loop after losing power.
I get that it may cause issues with immediate restarting play after a stop in live settings. But that is why a preference is the right choice (and I’ll argue it should be the default).
Tech Culture is that “save buttons” should be only used for special situations (think google docs, ms office… and most enterprise apps, most mobile apps, etc… The entire tech universe is dominated by auto-save these days which sets expectations of behavior.
