Personally, I’ve struggled to take anything Dylan says seriously when it comes to these types of videos. He’s had similar experiences with other gear. Focusing on limitations va playing. He’s also a YouTuber and clicks…talking about the “issues” vs demonstrating. “I can’t replicate this anymore.” Ok
I’ve done it too. Focus on limitations. Personally, I’ve not had the issues. Even if I do, as a creative hobbyist, it’s not something that prevents me from having fun.
I actually sub to you on YouTube, under Antonio_Ortiz.
You may not have had these issues, but many others have, myself included.
I had these issues independently for days and then found his video, seeing that he pointed out the exact same issues. My bias didn’t even want to acknowledge his video at first. But objectively, he is telling the truth.
I don’t focus on limitations - even though it lacks certain features or specs compared to other Grooveboxes, I still purchased it because I like its design and felt it fit my workflow.
The bugs didn’t prevent me from having fun. The constant freezing, and limited memory, as much as it tried, didn’t prevent me from having fun.
But you know what’s prevents me from having fun?: not being able to retrieve my work. That literally prevents me from having fun.
I didn’t even post a thread until this particular issue came up. I could ignore the rest, but this is a potential deal-breaker.
I’m not one to quit on my investments, so I’ll be patient. But for a brand-new, premium-priced device, we, as consumers, should expect better.
