My setup is USB keyboard > DAW > Octatrack >(MIDI OUT) A4 >(MIDI THRU) Model D.
I like to be able to sequence by a PC arpeggiator plugin (if only Elektron arpeggiators had beat sync…) and sequence stuff with the Octatrack as well. It also gives flexibility for recording long MIDI parts.
MIDI thru works fine usually but then I noticed it was only sending MIDI thru on certain channels. It looks like the channel needs to be set up as one of the 8 MIDI channels in the MIDI sequencer (it doesn’t matter if that channel is selected, just needs one set to that channel to pass the MIDI thru).
Is there any way to bypass/workaround that behaviour or do I need to have a separate MIDI track on the Octatrack set to each channel I want to have sent to the Octa MIDI OUT?
