Hello I have four pieces of gear that I am trying to connect. An elektron octatrack is used to control tempo and program changes to a Digitone and a syntakt. On the top of the midi chain is a faderfox pc12 channel midi controller. On preset 1 the midi controller is routed thru the midihub to the syntakt. The 12 channels of the syntakt are set to 1-12.
In preset 2 The octatrack is again master tempo and program change to the Digitone and syntakt. The faderfox pc-12 is routed to the octatrack and digitone IN. Channel 1-8 controls the octatrack and 9-12 are set to the Digitone.
The idea behind this system to is quickly have all 72 pots in the pc-12 dedicated to all 24 audio tracks between two pages.
Please see the attached drawing to explain.
I just received my midihub and set everything up accordingly. It seemed fairly straightforwad setting the midi IN and OUT routes internally in the midi hub on presets 1&2… I also programmed the pc-12 encoder button to send a program change message on channel 16 (cc1 on preset 1 & cc2 on preset 2) to avoid needing to cycle the button on the side of the hub.
I got it al plugged in and…disappointment
The tempo and program changes are working but the pc-12 was hit and miss. I watched the midi info pass thru the hub via my computer and it all looked like it should be working. The octatrack wasn’t responding to input from the pc-12 and the digitone intermittent. The syntakt seemed to work fine. I’m thinking perhaps I created some sort of midi loop with the octa track that was messing with me. Can anyone think of a reason that a track mute cc sent thru the hub to an octrack wouldn’t trigger?
