A simple hi-hat sample I have gets this message when attempting to load it into the Yamaha MONTAGE.
This is the sample:
I’ve tried every modification I can to get it to load.
I lengenthed it out to 11.707 seconds to make sure there is no possible way it is too short.
Since that failed, I assumed it must be looking at the wave file itself and possibly trimming 0 values, so I added some noise at the end, plus a loop point with a few non-zero samples. I also converted from 44,100 Hz to 48,000 Hz.
Since that failed I know it must be doing more analysis on the sample than it should, so I normalized it to ensure it has the whole range of volumes.
This is shown in the image.
It’s loud, it’s long, it’s in both valid Hz, so why isn’t it loading?
To top off everything, this error isn’t even mentioned in the Yamaha MONTAGE owner’s manual.
It has the opposite error:
* Sample is too long. The Sample size is too large and the Load operation cannot be executed.
The Yamaha MOTIF XF owner’s manual has this error:
* Sample is too short. The Sample length is too short and the Frequency Convert Job cannot be executed.
But that gives me absolutely no clue how I am supposed to fix it, since I already made the sample insanely long, so it’s clearly not actually too short.
On the Yamaha MONTAGE side, I have rebooted several times and other samples still load after this one fails. There is plenty of sample memory available (around 200 megabytes) and no other points are suspicious. It is on firmware v2.00.
