Are there any proper video examples of RYTM doing something other than regurgitated tool techno of the last decade? I'm just not getting that "wow factor" from it. I've seen some complex stuff on a Tempest, but I just can't get any convincing evidence of the RYTM being what people say that it is.

Having a rytm as well. Really like it. Great to have envelopes additionally to the synth engine parameter decay.
Liking the sound. not sure about the hihats and toms. The new ride engine is awesome I think.

I liked this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jbudplqRlU

How am I supposed to keep the machine recording when I hit the stop button, you know sometimes the loop keeps going, or the delay etc.

I'm talking about recording to DAW.

So from looking into the Rytm + Overbridge more, I get the impression that I could setup the following work flow:

1) Start an Ableton project, load Overbridge, ignore the machine, then treat Overbridge an 8 ch drum 'VST' while creating a sound palette via the DAW/mouse. And then route all 8 channels to separate input tracks in Ableton.

2) Put down the mouse, move to the machine, and sequence shit out (with each Rytm channel routing through a separate Ableton channel).

3) Move back to Ableton. Re-create the sequences I came up with on the Rytm as Ableton clips, then sequence the Rytm externally.

4) Automate all the Rytm parameters as part of my Ableton arrangement.

5) Ctrl + S everything and have it recall later.

... is all of that possible? I really like my workflow in Ableton with drum rack channels, effects chains, options for automations, total recall, etc. I just want x0x style sequencing for actually coming up with the rhythms I use. The Rytm almost seems too good to be true.

Yeah that should be possible, though it seems a bit convoluted to me.

What is it that you want from the rytm? Only the sequencing and the the ovebridge capability? Or also the sound and its other features?

Mainly for the x0x style sequencing aspect, but also for the sound engine. Gives an alternative to using straight samples.

I may or may not want to ultimately sequence from Ableton, but it's nice to know I can preserve that option.

I could suggest the digitakt too, as it can also sequence external gear. Then again if you are also looking at the rytm for the sound engine and getting away from samples it should be a good choice.

If you can get one for around 1150 you can always sell it again for the same price.

I don't have any other external gear at the moment, so that feature of the Digitakt doesn't draw me. Having the rytm's sound engine is an option sounds nice. Also just unplugging it from time to time and sitting on the couch or porch while jamming some shit out.

Just rather broke atm, otherwise I think I will!

Nothing new in the pipeline yet, but I've got some stuff simmering on the back burner. Been focused on getting the fuck out of grad school this year. Once I defend in 3 weeks I'm planning to spend time on music again.

Rytm user. Cool thread. I glance at Elektronauts from time to time but styles are so varied it's hard to get proper advice on how best to use it in a techno context. To my embarrassment though, I do end up using the sample playing capabilities waaay too much and need to explore the synthesis machines much deeper.

Forgive my ignorance, Senko, but what is 'tool techno'?

A techno tool, or tool tracks can refer to techno tracks that are mostly used and made in a dj set context. Usually they are plain beats that arent really interesting on their own but can be really good when mixed together(depending om the dj's skillz)
