I understand where your frustration is coming from and we really do appreciate you sticking around and contributing to what we believe is a fantastic product with so much more room to grow. One of the biggest drawbacks happens to also be the Aeros’s strength, it can be a lot of things. While we’re very hopeful with our larger dev team and all the user input we have that we will make the Aeros reach its full potential, it will take time.
We’ve come to realize that looping can be done in many different ways and one feature that could be crucial to one person’s experience may not be pressing to someone else. We are committed to getting through all of the user complaints and bugs ASAP, and our dev team expansion is part of that growing commitment to meet the expectations that the Aeros sets. That being said, there has to be a focus to get things done efficiently, and we do our best to gauge from what the community is telling us as to what the most crucial features are.
Please know you are heard and that this particular bug is on our list which will grow shorter day by day!
The new beta firmware is at a functional level right now, I know it isn’t going to be the exact set up you’re used to, but if your loops are meant to be the same length or multiples/ whole number unit fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, etc) then the new sync features may be of use to you. There are three new features: Sync Length, Sync Start, and End of Loop (EOL).
Sync length will force your tracks to be a whole number unit fraction or a multiple of the original loop length. This would be useful if you want to record an 8 bar phrase followed by another 1, 2, 4, or 8 bar phrase, you can also do 16, 24, 32 bars, etc.
Sync Start will force all your tracks to start in the same place as the longest current loop. So hitting “next track” on anything other than 1st track (tracks 2,3,4,5 or 6) will keep recording the current track until the end of the longest loop length and set up recording at the loop start. Hitting play will make a track stop recording and start looping at next measure.
Sync Start+ Sync Length will combine both features so that hitting “Next track” will always start recording at start of loop and so that all tracks must be whole number unit fractions or multiples of original loop.
EOL will make it so that Stop all and next part commands will follow the longest track, meaning hitting stop won’t apply until it reaches end of longest loop. Same idea with next part command but will switch parts automatically at end of loop.
I understand if you feel winded and frustrated with this product not being what you need it to be yet, but I’d say it’s worth a shot seeing if this new update can be useful in your workflow.
