First let me introduce myself before asking a question!
I’m a hobby music making bloke and like to play around with hardware synths.
It’s a great way for me to reduce stress and to keep my mind in a creative state.
I’ve been checking out this forum from time to time and it looks like a nice place to be!
My choice of weapons:
- Roland TR-8
- Roland TB-3
- Elektron Analog Four
- Novation Circuit
- Arturia Drumbrute
- Allen&Heath ZED24 (mixer)
- Squarp Pyramid !!!
- Keystation 49e
- Isla Instruments Kordbot
Now about my “problem”:
I try to play my hardware through the keystation hooked up to the pyramid.
For some reason I cannot get it to work.
I’ve checked my settings, watched video’s of other people setting up their pyramid.
But no matter what I try, it doesn’t seem to work.
Also tried it with my Kordbot… same problem…
Playing the pads on the pyramid works fine and I can play all the gear.
But the keystation and pyramid are being ignored so it seems.
They way I connected my gear:
Keystation --> Pyramid Midi IN
Pyramid Midi OUT A --> TR-8 Midi IN
TR-8 Midi OUT --> Analog Four Midi IN
Analog Four Midi OUT --> TB-3 Midi IN
TB-3 Midi OUT --> Circuit Midi IN
- Drumbrute is connected to Midi out B from the pyramid
The above setup works fine when only using the pyramid and everything works as it should.
But an external controller is ignored.
I’ve checked the manual and watched the YT video’s…
I’m scratching my head here about what I possibly are doing wrong. Or something I might mis…
Settings on Pyramid:
MDI IN SETTINGS:
Assign note to: Keypad
Transpose note: C4
Omni mode: Mutitrack BK A
Ignore sync: On
Ignore strt/stp: On
Anto echo: Off
MIDI OUT SETTINGS:
Midi A mode: Midi Out + Thru
Sync Midi A: Off
Strt/stp Midi A: Off
Midi B mode: Midi Ou
Sync Midi B: Off
Strt/stp Midi B: Off
USB settings: Off
Sync stop: Send Clock
If some of you smart and great persons here on this forum would help me out by providing idea’s what I might be doing wrong I would really appreciate it.
