It may be the level of work that the OT is carrying out. I do a lot of live looping and mangling, using pickup machines, and i also overdub tracks. The OT crashes everytime if Pyramid is master, my overdubs get aborted or a loop gets aborted during recording. I notice that when OT is master, I can see the tempo slightly fluctuating (in the decimals) so maybe it is a cheap way that they try and tempo sync/timestretch. Either way it isn’t playing ball, and although I read the manual, I can’t work out how Turbo MIDI is supposed to work (I thought that might work). From what I understand you aren’t recording into OT live so just accessing stored samples? In that case I can’t see it crashing, I’m pushing mine a fair bit but it “should” be able to handle it.
Yes I know about reassigning CC’s, though I’m blown away by the LFO’s (and Plocks) of OT controlling Pyramid parametres, so much scope there! Though I feel squarp could implement having their lfo’s able to control fx parametres rather than just CC’s, that would be boshty!
I’m still confused on having multiple controllers assigned to pyramid tracks (not just midi channels) so I can use FX in realtime, it is a proper pain to have to select a track before controlling it, for the reason of having many items I control at once (ie, I could be playing my se-02 via midi keyboard, whilst tweaking blofeld on my controller).
The only way I can currently operate is by setting MIDI IN to multitrack A, and setting MIDI out to OUT+THRU (as I need OT’s clock to be sent to other gear). I know that setting it to THRU connects IN straight to OUT, hence no MIDI FX, though if Pyramid is Master, OT won’t play. I may be repeating myself here but not sure if I’m clear as I do make things complicated sometimes
