AMPLIFI Remote iOS Factory Presets download very slowly

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I bought an AMPLIFI TT yesterday. When I first connected my iphone 5s to it via bluetooth, it worked just fine, at least I didn't notice that anything was slow.

 

Then I upgraded AMPLIFI TT to the latest firmware. I'm not sure if it was only after that, or before too, but now as I connect my phone and click on AMPLIFI TT in the app to see the presets, it takes a lot of time to download all the presets from the unit. First I only see some 4-8 Presets, then after a few seconds another 4 and all together it takes a lot of time (a minute or two) to see all the presets. 

 

Is there something wrong here, or is it just as it works normally? 

Isn't there a way to switch off this constant downloading each time I start the app? 

 

Thanks for your help! 

 

Regards, 

Csaba

That's not really unusual. The app has to re-sync the presets from the TT. I don't know that it takes quite that long for me usually, but I've never timed it.

The question is how long it "normally" takes to re-sync the presets. Yesterday I didn't even notice that, I think I could within a few seconds browse until the last one (User 1-4). Now I have to wait over a minute to see them all. 

 

What is a normal sync or download time?

I think ~ 1 minute is normal, that has been my experience with the FX100.

Isn't there a way to stop the app download all presets each time I return to the app? 

 

I measured it now: it took over 1 minute and 20 seconds. And it happens each time I leave the app and come back again, even without stopping the app??

There's really no way to stop the synch process other than breaking the Bluetooth connection..

The 100 presets reside in the hardware, so when ever the app connects to the AMPLIFi it automatically starts the synch.

Maybe an idea could be for further releases that the app would only sync at startup, and not each time it gets back focus from another app (while running in background). 

Or, the app could download only the time stamps of the last preset changes (which could go really fast) and would only download those presets that are more recent in the unit than in the memory of the app. All-in-all it would be easy to reach where the user doesn't have to wait for the sync.
