  Roland TB-3 over USB causing sync/playback issues
Posted by: hotelbenson - Yesterday, 02:58 PM - Forum: Hardware MIDI Connectivity - Replies (2)

Hello! My Roland TB-3 is set up to accept incoming clock messages via MIDI. When I connect the TB-3 with 5-pin DIN cables, there is no problem at all - the internal sequencer on the TB-3 syncs perfectly with the incoming clock (which, if it helps to know, is a Roland TR-8S connected to the MIDI IN section of the MRCC.

However, when I attempt to connect the TB-3 to the MRCC via USB, I get weird playback/sync issues. The sequence does play, but the playback seems to stutter -- the sequence doesn't play back right away (instead, it starts on the second 16th note), the first note will be held for a while, then the next few notes will play back in rapid succession... Like I say, weird.

Here's the setup that's giving me problems:

- Roland TR-8S (as clock source) connected to MIDI IN #1
- Roland TB-3 connected via USB to MIDI IN/OUT D, with the 'out' (aka blue) light selected - I have not clicked the in/green light

As far as I can tell from reading the TB-3 manual, the device has no problem receiving MIDI clock messages over USB.

If someone can help me, it would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

  cant make more than 1 routing
Posted by: paulmapp - 03-18-2023, 02:26 AM - Forum: Hardware MIDI Connectivity - No Replies

OK, really odd.  Possibly something Ive done/am doing.

I only received my MRCC yesterday (with the 4x1 expander).  took hours to set up lol, noth the MRCC as such, but working out all my routings, and fault finding issues i was getting with the 4x1.

Anyway, got everything working as I wanted it late last night.   My MRCC wasnt on the latest FW, (still had to press shift and save/load) so I updated and everything seemed fine.

This morning I wanted to add an extra USB in (for my iridium.  I had it into the PC port yesterday as it was the only way I could get it talking, as Iridium is a host too) - I found how to configure correctly.  So Im not getting the green LED on the USB port (was getting red before) OPK, all good.  Now the problem.  I can only make a single routing....  This isnt just on the new port.  If I make changes to saved presets I can only make 1...  For instance, I can go to input 1, and ADD  (to my already working preset) Midi out 8, but iI cant add 9.  If I de-select 8 I can then add 9, but cant then add 10 etc.

This was fine yesterday, and before I updated FW (cant remember if I made some changes after or not).  

Any ideas at all here?  Im SOOOOOOOOOOOO close to having it set up with 4 presets how I need my setup to work.  The ONLY reason I changed was I really wanted the Iridium to work in a Host port and not use the PC one, or I cant route into my PC (which I wouldnt do often, do I  would want to on occasion).

Any ideas here.  Is it that latest FW?  if so how do I roll back.   Anything else that FW introduced I need to do to make multiple connections?

OK..... More playing.

It seems Im out of connections............  If I removed 5, I can add 5 but no more.

PITA lol

I have each of 4 presets set up correctly at least, but It means I cant add any more gear...... I have a Pro3 to integrate once I move to a slightly larger room - which will need 2 conections (1 in and 1 out) minimum (Id like more - i like to be able to play all my sources from all my keybeds)  There MAY be 2 available... or not.

Secondly, I was going to pick up a NDLR once back available, but theres no way Ill have enough routes to integrate that too....

Going to raise this as a ticket...  I get that if you have too much data flowing you get problems, but I dont.   Im not USING all the connections at once, but a long shot.   ITs just so I can go to any keybed, and play and sound source.    At worst Ill be playing the sequencer (HAPAX) or NDLR (If I can integrate it) but that wont use all the connections up either.

  Changiing Pad Midi Channel
Posted by: Thark - 03-17-2023, 12:32 PM - Forum: General Support - Replies (2)

Hi. I just tried to change the midi channel for the pad on my NDLR but it will not change! I can't even get it to switch midi ports. It seems to be stuck on channel 4, port usb1.

The drone and two mofifs are fine. No problems making changes to them. It's just the pad that causing me some grief.

Any thoughts?

Question Replacement scree
Posted by: stephencarr - 03-16-2023, 06:20 PM - Forum: General Support - Replies (1)

Hey all! So I'm one of the people who leaves their equipment switched on all the time, and now I regret this. I don't look at my MRCC often but I was dismayed to notice the OLED is all burned in and I can barely read some of the menus. 

I've now gotten the firmware that has a screen timeout, but that doesn't fix the burn in that's already there. 

So, question is, has anyone replaced their screen? Is it doable for a hobbyist? I haven't opened the case up yet, figured I'd ask before going to the trouble only to find out it's surface mounted with thousands of soldiers.

  Lower the volume messages sent to synth??
Posted by: Jeremiah - 03-16-2023, 08:47 AM - Forum: General Support - Replies (2)

Hello! Not quite sure if this is in the correct place... I have the wonderful MRCC and also recently got a used NDLR at a decent price. I am a home hobbyist dilettante, not even an amateur musician. Just like synths.

I see from the compatibility list that the Korg Minilogue XD is not actually supported.

Having said that... is it possible either the MRCC or the NDLR through it are sending some kind of message to the Minilogue XD to lower it's volume??

Because something like that is happening.

  Does NDLR sent MIDI Clock?
Posted by: racecube - 03-16-2023, 08:23 AM - Forum: General Support - Replies (1)

Simple Question, but I can´t receive CLK on any USB looking on the Midi Monitor on my Blokas Midihub.
NDLR is set to internal Clock and in the Shift+Menu Settings to USB 1-4.

Any suggests?

  Linnstrument MPE Help
Posted by: BettyOrVeronica - 03-13-2023, 12:37 PM - Forum: Computer MIDI Connectivity - Replies (1)

Just got my MRCC and after a bit of smashing my head against a wall virtual cables make sense, all good! This is going to save me a lot of pain in the long run for sure. One thing I can't figure out and can't find references to anywhere is MPE compatibility or lack thereof. Here's my use case: I have my Linnstrument 128 connected to the MRCC via USB. Works. I route that to my Mac on Port 1. Cool. Ableton sees this and controls an MPE-enabled soft synth just fine, but only as a single channel MIDI device, not as an MPE controller. I can't seem to find any setting - either in Ableton or the MRCC - to tell either device that the Linnstrument is sending MPE data. By contrast, when I connect the Linnstrument via USB directly to my Mac, it knows that it's getting MPE data without me changing anything, and it works correctly, so this tells me that the Linnstrument is at least sending the right stuff.

So! Is MPE possible via MRCC? If so, what do I need to do to make it clear that that's what I want to send? Thanks!

Duhhhhhh I found it. But I'll leave this here to help others. In Ableton MIDI settings pick the Port your MRCC is transmitting desired data on and select "MPE". That was... easy. Eventually.

  Program Change for Elektron Boxes
Posted by: Pasquada - 03-10-2023, 06:59 PM - Forum: General Support - Replies (4)

Been a while since visiting this forum. Have been enjoying Elektron’s recent Firmware updates …

And on that note; Simple question - Has the MRCC firmware addressed the issue of ‘Program Change’ that will endeavour a greater potential in conjunction with the Elektron ‘Song Mode’ … ???

Btw. I’m still on the default MRCC firmware when I received the unit a few months ago now.

  Blue LEDs on/off status
Posted by: starfish - 02-26-2023, 11:13 AM - Forum: MRCC Feature Requests - No Replies

On my MRCC it's often hard to tell if a PC OUT Port LED is lit (blue) or dim (pink). The difference is really subtle – even if I look at it from different angles. I tried all LED brightness levels, but that doesn't solve it. I assume it's mainly a hardware issue, because it's worse with some of the LEDs.

I guess a solution would be to switch the dimmed LEDs just completely off in a firmware update. Would that have any downsides?
