I haven’t used the electra one much since I got it, but am biting the bullet today and trying to get this to work. Some progress, but am having trouble with the docs, and getting this to fully work.
I want to have 2 editors set up (which I seem to have done successfully): the motorsynth, and then a clone of it. No problem.
What I am not getting are 2 basic things. According to the manual, if I click the top right button, it should request the patch from the motorsynth. But nothing happens when I do this, although I have bidirectional communication working through Ableton Live. I could be missing a setting in the motorsynth, but I haven’t found it yet (or perhaps the preset wasn’t programmed with this capability?).
EDIT: oh - vague memory that Live doesn’t pass through sysex. maybe that’s it. hmmmmm
EDIT #2: ok. Well, my midi monitor shows nothing happening when i click the request button. Just as a test, I downloaded a hardware synth that I don’t actually have…just to test this. when I hit request, it sends a sysex msg. So, it looks like this isn’t set up in the editor? or the info isn’t available?
But ideally what I’d like is - I go to the cloned version, and it communicates with 1 motorsynth, and then when I go to the ‘uncloned’ version, it communicates with the other one.
I have midi connected through the usb port. I don’t think I need to connect the midi din ports. as far as I can tell.
I will continue working on this, but i’m at the point where I’m concluding that I’m missing something basic.
Hope someone can help. Thanks.
