so I have an analog rytm MK2, analog four MK2, Roland JU-06a, a dreadbox typhon, and an arturia keystep.
What I’d like:
- to be able to control the analog four with the keystep
- to be able to play/sequence the JU-06a and dreadbox with the analog four
- to use the keystep also to play the JU-06a and dreadbox
- to send midi clock and start/stop to the rytm from the analog four
What I’ve done:
- connect keystep midi out -> midi in of A4
- connect A4 midi out -> midi solutions midi thru
- from the midi solutions midi thru, an out goes to the rytm (for clock/start/stop) and another goes to the JU-06a, and another to the dreadbox
- set the rytm to clock receive and transport receive, set the A4 to clock send/transport send
- configured the midi settings on A4: midi out via midi, and the A4 channels on 1-4, and FX on 5, and CV on 6
- set the JU-06a channel to 5, set the dreadbox channel to 6
- in the notes menu of the FX and CV track, set both on ‘send midi notes=on’
What does work:
- when i press play on A4, the rytm starts too, in sync (awesome)
- when I use the keystep and selecht channel 1-4 on keystep, I can control track 1-4 on A4
- when I use the A4 built in keyboard and select the FX and CV track, I can control and hear the JU-06a, and dreadbox
However, what goes wrong/doesnt work:
- when I change the keystep to channel 5 or 6, I don’t hear the JU-06a or dreadbox
- When I enter a sequence for the FX/CV track on the A4 and press play, I don’t hear the JU-06a or dreadbox.
what am I doing wrong? since o I can play the JU-06a / dreadbox with the built in keyboard on the A4, I must have my connections and channels right. So why can’t i sequence them with the FX/CV sequence track?
Also, If I can play track 1-4 on A4 with the keystep, the connections must be right. Why can’t i play the JU-06a or dreadbox with the keystep when I select the FX/CV track then? (and why does the built in A4 keybed work?)
I’m happy I came this far, hope you can help me with the final steps.
if there is another/better way to set this all up, please say so.
