I have encountered an odd problem where pyramid will not send some notes and CC messages stored on the first step of a sequence. This seems to happen in all SEQ modes (perform, play, and loop).
Example: I have a sequence chain featuring a synth track. I am using CC #71 and #24 to control the tone of the synth (cutoff and env amount). I set each CC to send on the first step of the pattern, setting the tone for that pattern. Then I set up pattern 2 in a similar way, with different CC values also stored on the first step of the pattern.
In SEQ mode, I chain the 2 sequences together and press play. When switching between the 2 sequences, the first step of the next sequence is not played and the synth tone does not change according to my CC messages.
Caveat: if I move my CC messages to the 2nd step (even zoomed in all the way), the messages are received by the synth per usual, but one step late.
I have encountered this problem with CC messages and notes as well. Sometimes a bass drum note on step one will not play when initially pressing play, but will play once the track has looped. I have ensured the notes are not offset slightly behind the beat.
What am I doing wrong here? Am I perhaps overloading the MIDI out with too many messages? I have a few synths chained, but the drum machine and synth in question are both first in the chain from MIDI out A and B. But I am nowhere close to maxing-out the pyramid’s capacity of 64 tracks or channels. Just sending notes and a few CCs on the first step of a sequence.
