Digitakt And Virus Ti in DawLess setup... stable?



Nope the stop start is the give away. I will write down all settings on the two units tonight and post. The fact that its changing the patch to a ram patch means that the DT is sending a program change…its fixable…but the below is from memory so try n see if it works.

In the interim go into the setting of the DT
Midi config
Port config
Output channel to trk ch
Param output to cc
Next 3 to int

Then exit and go to the channels menue
Set track 1 to channel 1
2 to 2
3 to 3
Etc etc 1 through 16
Auto channel off!
Program chg chanel to 9

On the virus edit midi config
Global channel 9
Soft thru off / NA
Midi device id omni or 1
Arp note send NA
Midi clock sync to external
Midi volume enable
Program change enable (for single)
Multi prog change disable (for single)
Swap last 2 for multi patch use…

And midi cc for pan is #10

Also on the DT dont forget on ch9 or 1st midi channel to set the midi channel! And program change to the patch you want…scroll up for other midi cc numbers that are fun with plocking.


Did you work it out?


Unfortunately not. I followed all the steps. Unless I’m doing something blatantly wrong (which wouldn’t surprise me) lol


Maybe type back the midi settings in the DT and Virus…encombersom but something may stick out…:slightly_frowning_face:


If you have a PC, you can use midi-ox to see what messages the DT sends to know for sure. There will probably a similar app for the Mac I imagine.


It seems to be sending note on and off repeatedly besides clock


Fyi still happy to skype but today is my 45th birthday…so nowhere near my studio or pc…:wine_glass::cocktail::tropical_drink::beer::beers::clinking_glasses::tumbler_glass:

Is that the DT USB?

If you are connecting from the DT to the virus via a MIDI DIN cable is there a way to get a reading from what is comming out of the 5 pin DIN…?

ie send midi to the virus through the DIN switch on the midi pass through in the virus and see what the software tells you is comming out of the virus via USB via midi through? Especially with the stop start thing??


SOLVED! The virus output configuration needed adjusting. Thanks so much Adam you’re a legend


Could you post the Digitakt and Virus settings please so others in this situation can use this post for guidance?


Hey OverUnity

What worked was the same settings as described above, just scroll up.

The actual problem here was not DT related as suspected (mainly by me!!), but Virus “Hardware Damage” in a 6.5 out… and Virus Output settings that were legacy of a previous owner…and not likely to occur in any other set up. :blush:

If the above set up description needs more explaining or fleshing out let me know and i will chip away at it…


Hey guys,

I’m glad it’s all now working, these problems can be a really head scratcher sometimes.

I should have read further up the thread - this is what comes of waking up to feed hungry babies at 5:30 in the morning and jumping on Elektronauts! :slightly_smiling_face:


Dude…there is a 5:30 in the morning? Sounds wrong…:rofl::rofl::rofl:


Tell me about it!
I’ve had words with my twin babies about waking up so early but they just laugh at me. :rofl::heart_eyes:


in my hunt for a midi CC# i found this (on what used to be this forum)…


My how things have really changed :rofl: or maybe not at all
