Hello to all,
My setup has been growing recently and I need advice/clarification on the MIDI side of it…
So here we go, this is how things are connected (MIDI):
Keystep out to Digitakt in
Digitakt out to Kenton thru (5) in
Kenton out 1 to Volca Bass in channel 9
Kenton out 2 to Volca Keys in channel 9
Kenton out 3 to Volca FM in channel 9
Kenton out 4 to Deepmind 12 in channel 10
Deepmind 12 thru to MiniNova in channel 11
Kenton out 5 to MicroFreak in channel 12
Volcas are all on the same MIDI channel as I rarely use them altogether.
Also Keystep, Digitakt, MiniNova and Deepmind 12 are connected through USB. That way I can quickly jam with hardware or have my DAW opened and be able to use my setup with a DAW.
Clock and sync work flawlessly.
What I would like to do is have the Keystep in the chain AFTER Digitakt. Digitakt does not transmit MW nor AfterTouch. I am therefore missing out on a lot on the Deepmind.
Does that make sense?
I understand I will be losing usage of the Keystep with Digitakt but that does not really matter as DT has a chromatic keyboard.
I would like to be able to start/stop Keystep ARP or SEQ at will while being able to send MW and AT to Deepmind.
Will the Digitakt restart ARP/SEQ on the Keystep on every cycle or will it (Keystep) not respond to Start/Stop?
Thanks for any tips in advance.
