Spending a lot of time with the manual and YT tutorials to figure out the DigitoneKeys. Love the machine, but for a guitarist, the learning curve is pretty steep.
So. My dream setup would be this but it doesn’t work when everything is plugged in together.
Digitone Sequence plays with 3-4 FM tracks.
MIDI track 1 (Channel 1) is used to send PC messages to the Digitone to change patterns
MIDI track 2 (Channel 10) is used to send PC Messages to the M:S to change patterns as well
MIDI track 3 (Channel 4) is used to play bass sequences on the Bass station.
Everything is synced to the Digitone BPM.
I tested the M:S and BassStation alone on the midi OUT of the Digitone: everything works perfectly. I need to to delve deeper in the trig functions for the bass stations: this will be AWESOME!
Now, I tried to patch them all together:
Digitotone MIDI OUT to M:S MIDI IN
M:S MIDI OUT to Digitone MIDI IN
Digitone Midi out 2 to BAss Station MIDI in.
Nothing is coming out of the Bass station.
- Could/should I do the full loop: Digitone tone to M:S to BassStation to DT in?
- If this is not the proper way to do it, what are my options?
- How do we set up trigless trigs to send PC so both the M:S and the Digitone change patterns (because hey, no song mode…). and follow each others?
I’ll work something out for songs beginning and ending afterwards: scrap a pattern for an 8 bar countdown or use the conditions to trick the M:S into doing what I want and end on an empty pattern.
Thanks in advance, gearheads!
