can i use the pyramid as a usb-midi interface only?
- i built a bastl 60knobs, hooked it up to pyramid through midi (pyramid midi A OUT > 60knobs midi IN)
- then connected pyramid with usb to my macbook
- then in settings, pyramidi = OFF, and midi out = midi THRU
- then ran the 60knobs editor (http://www.bastl-instruments.com/instruments/sixtyknobs/)
the editor sees pyramid usb, but when i try to upload presets, nothing happens
i figure i’m messing up something simple - can anyone help?
I too built the 60 knobs. Haven’t tried to hook it up via the pyramid like you do but I’m guessing the patches will be sent to the 60knobs as sysex. I think pyramid isn’t passing along the sysex…
r u sayin that da pyramid CANNOT ever do sysex? or is there some way to turn it on/off?
If OFF, received sysex messages are ignored. If Midi A (or Midi B, or Midi A+B), received sysex messages transmitted to MidiA (or Midi B, or Midi A+B).
Hope this helps
When sending sysex you generally want a direct connection with a standard MIDI cable. USB MIDI is known to not work well for sysex in quite a lot of gear. In other words, you probably need a decent USB MIDI interface. (M-Audio ones work fine, no need to spend a lot).
