I have a Virus TI which I’m trying to use as a midi controller.
(which under Linux is usb midi class compliant)
but no midi is being received in the patches when connected…
Ive run PD up in GUI mode, and I can see no midi notes on any channel.
amidi -l , shows the device, as does midi info in Organelle
I checked this because, the TI actually sends data on USB midi port 1 (not 0), so my understanding in PD this means it should be on channel 17.
( I altered the organelle midi script to allow for this, but still no luck)
ok, so then I checked, and I can see PD is set up to read /dev/midi3, using OSS
if I cat /dev/midi3, I can see data coming in from the TI, so data is definitely coming in…
as an aside, I then set PD to use ALSA midi, and used aconnect to connect the Virus to the PD virtual midi port, and viola it works fine.
… which raises another question, perhaps I should just configure PD to use ALSA MIDI… though for some reason, if I change in PD, it doesn’t seem to ‘stick’
