How can I factory reset the Deluge's SD card?

0

Hey girls and boys,

I completely messed up my SD card. I searched thoroughly through the net to find some kind of standard image I could put on it again but didn't find anything (would welcome it as a download in the Deluge's website's download section).

Anyway, where can I find the files? I'm not on Facebook!

Thanks for your help!

    Hi @Digital_Failure! Sorry I missed this post!

    The link @TactileAF posted (thanks for that, by the way!) seems to have everything on it, although there should also be an empty folder in the same directory as "KITS", "SYNTHS" etc... titled "SONGS".

    Alternatively, feel free to send me an email anytime at sam.carswell@synthstrom.com and I can send you the the folders/files myself.

    That helped a lot. Thanks you, TactileAF!

    my deluge wouldn't save anything to the supplied card, & after a while the snares vanished... I copied the other stuff off onto my macbook & back onto a different fat-ass-format 16GB card & now it all works. just thought you should know, Sam, Rohan et al, that the supplied cards might be a bit icky. I'm new here but definitely not new to h/w sequencers- I have or have had notrons, maqs, sequentix, genoqs, zyklus, midibox, octatrack... so get ready for some suggestions when I'm up to speed. & say hi to paul nagle at superbooth. :-)

    Same here, though I copied all to my mac, reformatted the SD card and then put back all the copied content (and some more samples) and it all works.

    alien_brain, I’ve read dozens... hundreds of your posts & comments on here. they’re like a constant whining noise while I’m trying to listen to what more civilised people have to say. you have some good ideas, but you also have- as you have been repeatedly told- an unpleasant, entitled & dismissive tone. I’ll ask you now, for the sake of being polite, to describe your workflow, your experience with other hardware sequencers, your knowledge of code, your history of making music- is any of it published? so we can all try to understand your constant carping & get along a bit better.
    if it helps, I’ll start.
    workflow: involves (gasp!) other musicians, who may have written parts on keyboards or guitars, that I need to programme into a hw seq for live performances. but I also need the same hw seq to be capable of jamming, without messing up on stage or in a live-to-tape studio jam.
    other hw seqs: sequentix, P3 & cirklon. my cirklon is #003. doepfer maq, dark-time, schaltwerk. notron (I own three of them). midibox seq v4. emu XL-7. zyklus. squarp pyramid. genoqs nemo & octopus. probably some others I forgot, but you get the idea. this is not my first rodeo.
    code- well, no, I couldn’t build any of those from scratch. but I beta-tested several of them, & made contributions to func spec & UI on four at least. the genoqs guys went open-source, & I still follow the forum to see where the latest fork in the OS will lead. that, btw, is an excellent example of how to collaboratively develop a product beyond its makers’ expectations. & I wouldn’t try to take credit for a development just because it turned out like I suggested- I didn’t write the code to make it happen.
    I’m one third of radio massacre international. you can look us up. I’m not interested in what you think of our music, what we look like, how we do it or anything. just that we have an actual presence, albums out there, & that I’m not afraid to tell people on here.

    so. I noticed that under one of your many whining posts, you got upset when someone else posted a comment, asking them “who invited you?”
    I’m not like that. let’s have a conversation. over to you.

    are you a tangerine dream fan im guessing? what do you want me to prove to you? your sd card issue was the interest here in this thread. i found it also interesting that i had the same issues you had yet there was no info forthcoming when i dropped that bomb here and apparently pissed all the fanboys off lol

    there, does that satisfy your need? well thats all you get.

    Those whose SD cards have stopped working, I'm curious to get a little bit more info, which could help us to figure out whether there's any issue with the cards we're supplying (probably not, but it's best to be sure).

    • Was the card that failed the supplied one? Was it 8 or 16GB?
    • Was it working when you first received the Deluge / card?
    • Do you remember what you did with it just before the card failed?
    • Had you ever used the Deluge's sample-recording or "resampling" (output-recording) features?

    Thanks a lot!

    mine is 8gb
    yes it was working
    i saved the second version to 1a of the first song i was working on
    never used resampling on that project or card

    the symptoms were that when i switched to 1a and it was actually 1 that played.

    grow up or fuck off..

    rohan, mine was the supplied 16GB, & wouldn’t retain anything saved to it. as noted above, after a while, the snares vanished. my replacement 16GB card seems to be fine.

    honestly my only problem here is people like you! if you would just mind your own business things would be a lot better! and why arent you putting me on ignore? you have all said that was your intention yet nobody has done it and you all insist on reminding me how intolerant you are and how fragile your sensibilities are at every turn. seriously a bunch of snowflakes! get lost! go cry to someone who CARES! stop trying to drag me to some reform! i know what you think and i think youre silly! need i say it again?

    Shiiiit you crazy, homie.

    You didn't defend yourself, you pushed away an honest attempt at communicating with you.

    I never wanted to ignore you, I proposed to ban you completely.

    No one likes you, that's the point. But you're the one who made it that way, and you defend yourself with apathy and carelessness.

    We're not intolerant, your toxic obnoxiousness is too much for anyone. Who the hell tolerates you at all anyway? :p
