I’m experimenting with MPE (Roli Seaboard Block) and Pd. So far I’ve managed to made a poly synth patch that responds well to MPE (I’ve borrowed the polyphony distribution solution from @thetechnobear awesome Brds MPE pd patch). It works well on my PC but after firing it up on Pisound I’ve experienced an odd Seaboard behaviour - it randomly stops sending MIDI data and I’ve got stuck MIDI notes. In order to restore it I need to switch the Seaboard off and on and change Pd MIDI input port to anything else that dev2 (Seaboard in this case) and back do dev2. It’s probably not a Pd error because the same thing happens when I’m using Seaboard with any virtual instrument in Reaper.
Is it possible that Seaboard is not getting enough power? (RPi 3 B have USB 2.0 ports, I’m running it using dedicated 2.5A USB power supply)(Seaboard battery is almost full) or is this somehow a problem with the MPE data amount (USB 2.0 vs USB 3.0 speed)? (for this patch Seaboard is set to 4 voice polyphony so only MIDI channels 1-4 are being used)
It’s most definitely not a Pisound problem but maybe someone can point me in the right direction, all suggestions are welcome
P.S. Just realised that I should probably check if it happens when Seaboard is connected over Bluetooth with RPi. (EDIT: not sure if RPi 3 B/Raspbian supports MIDI-over-Bluetooth)
