I’ve been refining a preset on the E1 for use with Ableton Live. It’s for a specific Ableton file I use in every live gig. It’s been updated over the years and I’ve combined it with a variety of different midi controllers. It was great fun to start creating the preset even before the E1 arrived in the mail !
I’ve had the E1 for a month, and it’s been great. But yesterday I did a minor tweak to the preset and got a glitch.
I duplicated a fader (pan style, -63 to 63, unsigned 7bit) and the new fader never sent any midi data. I tested the midi output with midi monitor on a mac. I went into a dig to understand the bug and this is what conclusions I got to :
- Only happens with pan style faders unsigned (I suppose they have a name !)
- Normal faders work just fine
- Sign bit and “two complement” work perfectly too
I also created a fader from scratch (not only a copy). Tried various CC values. What I don’t understand is that I have many of these types of faders working fine in my preset.
Any ideas, something I should test or check ?
E1 is running firmware 1.5
