Re: Dropped and stuck notes even with new firmware

I decided to post a message to the XK-3c forum to see if they had any ideas. Two possibilities: Try a different MIDI cable. Upgrade the OS of the XK-3c. I will be out of town this week, but I will try the above ideas next week. In the meantime, I hope that Amos magically can reproduce and fix the is...

Re: Dropped and stuck notes even with new firmware

Amos, Per your request I did some experimentation. Here are the results: I hooked my XK-3c to the SP. Stuck notes. I hooked my Rockman keyboard controller to the SP. I did not get any stuck notes. I hooked my XK-3c to the SP. Stuck notes. I hooked my XK-3c to GarageBand and played a synth lead patch...

Re: Dropped and stuck notes even with new firmware

Amos, in another post you mention the USB firmware for the LP being at version 32. You gave me version 31. Is 31 the latest version for the SP?

Re: Dropped and stuck notes even with new firmware

Amos, I installed the USB 31 update and restarted the SP. After about two minutes of playing, I got a stuck note. Right before the stuck note the system started to "glitch" a little, with at least one note dropping. So unfortunately the USB update made no difference. I connected the XK-3c to MIDI Mo...

Re: Dropped and stuck notes even with new firmware

Amos, I can run Windows via Parallels. I will install the USB firmware ASAP and let you know how it goes.

So, you think the USB firmware could affect the MIDI controller?

Re: Dropped and stuck notes even with new firmware

Hi Amos. Thanks for your commitment to solve this issue. I will provide any help and information that I can. To answer your questions: I don't think my keyboard is sending out clock or active sensing messages. Is there a way I can confirm this? Is there an app for the Mac that can log the MIDI strea...

Dropped and stuck notes even with new firmware

I have been having consistent problems with dropped notes and stuck notes on my SP. I had hoped that OS 3.1 would solve it, but it changed nothing at all. I am connecting my SP to an XK-3c via a MIDI DIN cable. The problem happens every few minutes. The dropped notes are bad enough, but a stuck note...

Re: Still the MIDI problem... :)

I am using OS 3.1 on a Slim Phatty. I still get the dropped notes and stuck note problem when connecting the SP to a keyboard via a DIN cable. I play for about 5 minutes and then it is inevitable. The keyboard does not provide USB MIDI so that is not an option. This seems like a problem that won't g...

Gigging with the Slim Phatty

Hey all, I am very glad to find this forum. I just got my Slim Phatty and I am loving it. Now it needs to go to its first gig. Some questions: I'd like to buy a nice little gig bag for it. Any ideas? Moog has their multi-purpose bag, which might work but is definitely not ideal. I did not get the wo...
