Sorry for the novice question, I’ve searched for and read all other threads about it but I can’t make it work:
I want to plug my Keystep 37’s (KS) midi out into the DN midi in, and do two things simultaneously:
- Play any midi channel on the DT.
- Sync the DN and DT clocks/transports from the DN.
I can’t get it to work. If I plug the midi cable between the DN midi out and DT in, transport from the DN works, but I only hear sounds on the DT if I play on the DN’s built in keyboard. The midi inputs from the KS are not passed through via the DN midi out.
On the other hand, if I plug the cable between the DN midi thru and DT in, any notes played on the KS will play just fine across all midi channels, but now I’m stuck using the KS transport buttons instead! Pressing Play on the DN no longer gets the DT to start playing. This is problematic because the transport buttons on the KS also activate its built-in arpeggiator, making it impossible to play freestyle while jamming with the DT+DN combo.
Can this be done? Essentially, can the midi port of the DN (or DT) be configured as a midi out+thru? Or is there another way of solving this problem that I’m unable to figure out?
