So I have been struggling to get this to work all evening. Surely this should be an easy operation. I swear, every time I sit down to program the MIDIhub it wastes an entire evening. This could be such a killer bit of gear, but it just doesnt work. At least obviously. Intuitively. Reliably. So disappointing.
Anyway. I attached the very very very basic preset.
I started with Local Off on the CS2 so all midi notes played on the tiny touch keyboard would be sent to the MH, parsed for operation, and the resultant data sent back to the CS2. In this config I was able to get the LFO to modulate CC parameters on the CS2. However, I could not get Sustain to work reliably in this setup (another serious pain in my you know what). So I moved the Sustain pipe to an earlier pipeline further up the stack before the LFO operation. In this manner I was able to get Sustain to be a bit more reliable but now the LFO had no effect. Not with a Channel Remap, not without. Not with any one of the thousand variations of settings in the LFO block.
Its possible the problems are with the CRAFTsynth not recognizing the incoming data. I need to check with another hardware setup to see if there is any difference. But knowing the experience I’ve had with MIDIhub since the day I got it, my bet is on some arcane quirky setup requirement that just happened to be left out of the documentation.
God it would be nice if there was a way to monitor the inputs and outputs to troubleshoot this sort of thing. Even, god forbid, if there were a virtual LED indicator on each block so one could see what was going in at that level of activity.
If anyone reading this is feeling generous enough to take a look at the pipeline and test it, please please do. Better yet, anyone have a CRAFTsynth or any other Modal synth.
Cheers, a very tired and frustrated and unproductive failing musician.
