****** Page 4 ****** 1. INTRODUCTION 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 ABOUT ELEKTRON TRANSFER Transfer is an application for Mac OS and Windows that simplifies the transfer of audio sample files be- tween your computer and your Elektron device. You can also use Transfer to install new operating systems on your Elektron device. Transfer also supports preset transfers for Model:Cycles. A simple drag & drop interface allows you to transfer almost any kind of audio file with great simplicity. You can drop entire folders or zip-archives directly onto the application, and preserve the folder hierarchy for all the samples contained within. Transfer supports various sample formats and sample rates, and it automatically converts the samples to the correct native format before transferring them to your Elektron device. Transfer also makes it easy to backup any sample files from your device to your computer. Transfer uses a USB-MIDI protocol and does not require any additional drivers installed on your computer. 1.2 SUPPORTED ELEKTRON DEVICES Transfer supports the following Elektron devices. • Analog Rytm MKI/MKII • Analog Four MKI/MKII • Analog Heat MKI/MKII • Analog Keys Digitakt Digitone Digitone Keys • Model:Samples • Model:Cycles Your specific device OS may enable/disable certain Transfer features.

****** Page 7 ****** 2. USING TRANSFER Here you can drop device OS files, sample files, folders or zip files containing samples, directly onto the drop zone to transfer the files to your device. Various sample formats are supported (.wav, .aiff, .mp3, and more). The exact list of supported file formats may depend on your computer OS and its built-in codecs. When dropping complete directory structures onto the Drop zone, Transfer creates the corresponding di- rectory structure on the device, even if you drop zip files. In the top right section of the DROP page, you can change the target folder on the device side. The default value is /transfers-YYMMDD, which means you get a folder with today’s date by default. The files are converted and re-sampled automatically using high-quality algorithms if they are not already in the native format supported by your device (typically 16bit/48kHz, mono). Files that were previously backed up by the Transfer application itself are transferred in a bit-accurate manner, preserving compatibility with your device projects. At the bottom of the application window, there is a list of currently active transfers. You may drop additional files to the drop zone while other transfers are ongoing. The files are added the job queue automatically. 2.2.i TRANSFERRING SAMPLES 1. Connect the Elektron device to the computer via USB. 2. Open the Transfer application on your computer. 3. On the Transfer CONNECTION page, set the MIDl IN and MIDl OUT ports to your Elektron device. 4. On the Transfer DROP page, drag and drop the samples. The samples will automatically be trans- ferred to the Elektron device 2.2.2 TRANSFERRING OS FILES AND UPGRADING DEVICE OS (STANDARD MODE) This is the standard mode of transferring device OS files to your Elektron device is to use the Transfer DROP page and in this way upgrade your device OS. 1.

Connect the Elektron device to the computer via USB. 2. Open the Transfer application on your computer and then select the USB MIDl port(s) for your device on the Transfer CONNECTION page. 3. In Transfer, click the EXPLORE tab to open the EXPLORE page. 4. On the EXPLORE page on the left side under MY COMPUTER (e.g. your computer), navigate to the samples or folders you want to transfer. 5. Drag and drop the samples or folders to your preferred folder under *DEVICE NAME* (e.g. Digitakt or Analog Rytm etc.). 2.3.2 TRANSFERRING SAMPLES TO A COMPUTER You can also transfer samples from your Elektron device to a computer. 1. Connect the Elektron device to the computer via USB. 2. Open the Transfer application on your computer, and then select the USB MIDl port(s) for your device on the CONNECTION page. 3. In Transfer, click the EXPLORE tab to open the EXPLORE page. 4.

Drag and drop the samples or folders to your preferred folder under MY COMPUTER (e.g. your computer). Samples that are transferred from your Elektron device to your computer are stored in .wav format with bit-accuracy such that they can be transferred back to your device again with full project compatibility preserved. Note you should keep the .wav files unaltered on the computer if you want to guarantee that they are kept compatible with your device projects. Should you edit the files, they end up with a different hash sum, which in turn means that the Elektron device will no longer be able to load them into your projects. You may, however, rename or move files both on the computer and on the device without losing project compatibility. a
