poly AT, i was just referring to second question… but yeah, poly AT is pretty uncommon.
(sorry dont have a keystep, and didnt check the specs)
what I would do is:
- connect your keystep and pyramid to a computer,
- record a quick sequence using your keystep with (channel) aftertouch into your daw.
- check that you can see channel pressure in the automation
- play that sequence to the pyramid from the daw.
- look at the midi in data on the pyramid (settings info) , can you see the channel pressure data?
(if its set to ignore AT, then it wont show in the midi in data, if its set to not ignore, then it will show)
if you cannot see the channel pressure in your daw, then you know the keystep is not sending it, its the setup of the keystep you need to look at.
if you see the channel pressure in the daw, then you know its the pyramid
(though as i mentioned, the only thing i did to make it work, is to ignore aftertouch to false)
a couple of other things, you could try:
- draw the channel pressure into your daw, then play that to the pyramid.
(also add a note, as ive seen some ‘software’ not send channel pressure if there is no active note… this is not ‘according’ to midi spec, but happens )
- use a midi monitor on your pc/mac to look at the data coming from the keystep.
my suspicion, is its probably more likely to be a keystep thing that the pyramid…
Im assuming you have tried the keystep connected directly to the synth, and channel pressure works then??!?
note: im using the latest 2.3 pyraos, i dont know if this makes any difference, as only just got the pyramid, so not used any previous version of the OS.
