Finally got my DT to crash repeatedly - possibly caused by MIDI feedback loop. I run the DT into a MOTU Micro Express, from there it is routed to all external synths. My controller (a Prophet 6) is routed into the DT, but also needs to receive MIDI from DT. So I have to turn “Local Control OFF” on the P6 when tracking MIDI for it, otherwise I get a feedback loop and usually a freeze. The problem with that is the DT doesn’t seem to pass through NRPN or CC, so all I get is keyboard, nothing else is passed through the DT back into the P6.
The MIDI sequencer is really cool but leaves a A LOT to be desired. I know the DT is a drum computer and sampler first and foremost, but the MIDI track implementation is half-baked. There should be a way to export MIDI tracks as “sounds” also, so I don’t have to remap my CC’s for every synth or be copying tracks between patterns just to get the instrument setup.
And please, bring back the option of having DT send MIDI Clock but not MMC! Every time I hit “Play” on DT, all my sequencers start going. I don’t always want that. I think I can filter out MMC from my MOTU patch bay but not sure.
