I’m hoping someone can help with what should be a pretty straightforward MIDI issue I’m having.
I have 3 MIDI devices: a Beat Buddy drum machine/MIDI clock generator, an Organelle, and an Intellijel µMIDI MIDI to CV converter which I want to use to send MIDI info to my modular setup.
I want to be able to send MIDI clock to the Organelle from the Beat Buddy via a Mio i/o interface that has two, 5-pin DIN MIDI connectors and 1 USB connection. Good news is that this works great! The Organelle receives the MIDI clock and syncs, no problem.
I also want to be able to send gate, trigger, and pitch information from the Organelle to the µMIDI so that I can patch in the Organelle as a controller for the modular. This also works great using the same Mio MIDI interface!
Lastly, I want the Organelle to pass the MIDI beat clock it’s receiving from the Beat Buddy on to the µMIDI. Alas, this is where it all falls apart. I cannot get he Organelle to send the MIDI clock on to the modular, even though the Organelle is clearly receiving it. As an aside, the µMIDI receives clock great when the Beat Buddy is plugged directly in to it.
I have read several articles on this forum about implementing MIDI THRU on the Organelle. Unfortunately, many of them refer to editing the “Mother.pd” patch, which, after searching fruitlessly, doesn’t seem to exist on my Organelle. I have also read articles and watched videos on editing the “Patches_sh” patch, but this doesn’t work either. The Organelle does not recognize either the Beat Buddy or the µMIDI, so it does not assign them device numbers.
Does anyone know how I can get the Organelle to simply relay the MIDI clock info it’s receiving? Editing things in PD is a little over my head at the moment, but I’m willing to give it a try if that’s what it takes. I’m hoping there’s a simple solution out there somewhere! Thanks so much for any help.
