As best as I can tell, the Aeros has no explicit save action. The manual says it will autosave when the song is stopped. This makes me wonder about a few things:
- When I stop and the Aeros is saving, will there be any delay to start the song again? Or can the Aeros do the save in the background and resume immediately? Resume and record immediately? ’
- Wondering if l stopping and resuming the song can be used for a break in a song or an unplanned part, or …
- Do I have the choice of going back to the “original version” of my song or save a copy only when I want to save? In a device that has manual save, I can mess around with a song, change it, and then decide to save the changed song (overwriting the old version or saving as a new song).
- Geek Alert: Any concerns about “wear leveling” of the flash/sd card? Surprisingly these devices have a limited number of write cycles. Over time flash loses capacity depending on the number of writes. The SD card can easily be replaced. The internal flash (emmc?) isn’t so lucky (and is smaller which is a double whammy). Autosave could make this a lot worse. Wondering what’s the number of times the autosave can kick in before we lose 30% of space in internal memory ? I suspect after many years, we might need to migrate all songs to SD card and preserve the internal memory for system updates.
