this topic started with me thinking I had a bad MIDI cable ( thread here )
But my conclusion after testing 3 cables and 2 different din to jack adapters is that this is not to do with cables.
If I connect my octatrack via USB midi direct to the organelle (using one ofthese) then I have good clock stability on organelle and complete MIDI control. I can sequence organelle from OT, no problems.
If I swap out USB for MIDI to Midi Jack cable then I get sometimes a good clock, sometimes an unstable clock (there is an acknowledged bug relating to the clock that @oweno described in the thread above) however, in addition I can’t sequence the organelle from the OT, every trigger (key press) sent stays locked so I get a build up of sound. This is the same across multiple patches.
It seems that maybe the MIDI (being a new feature on the M) is in need of some bug fixes? I’ll wait in anticipation for that. In the mean time midi in over jack to din is unusable so I will have to stick to USB, annoying, as I’d like to use the USB port for other things (storage), but not the end of the world.
Of course it could be I have a defective organelle M? Would really appreciate it if anyone else out their can let me know their experiences with midi jack in control to put my mind at rest or not!.
