Sequencing my voyager with DS Evolver

Post by mab » Wed Jul 16, 2014 8:04 pm

Hi all,

I'm trying to play a sequence on my Voyager from a DS evolver (desktop). I can't get any sound from it. I'm using the stock MIDI settings on both system. The Evolver MIDI out is connected to the Voyager MIDI in. When I turn the preset bank knob on the evolver I can see the midi light blinking on the Voyager, however it doesn't blink at all when I play the sequence.

Anyone has a clue ?

Thanks for the help!

Hey Mab, welcome to the forum.

I sold my Evolver a long time ago but IIRC the sequencer is only a modulation source, hence not transmitting MIDI.
Anyone correct me.

It should transmit midi, make sure your channels match up, i.e. Evolver out = voyager in

Also, check your voyager sound, that the attack isn't too slow for the midi notes to trigger as the sequence progresses

ok, I was really dubitative, but I've jsut checked in the Evolver manual and it indeed transmits MIDI notes. :oops:

Well, despite being pretty sure about it, I did have to double check the FAQ in their site too :D I really miss my PEK

OK I actually need to set the sequence destination to midi on the DS evolver.

Page 18 in the DS manual.

@mab

Check out this site for a great 3rd party manual for the Evolver. http://www.carbon111.com/evolver.html
