I am trying to control soft synths in DAWs using Sensory Percussion (old triggers, software version 2, Reverie little drums with mesh heads, 2018 13" Intel MacBook Pro).
I understand how the IAC Driver Bus works. I’ve set it up and I’ve got Sensory Software V2 communicating with Ableton (didn’t seem to work well at all in Bitwig which I tried to get working all day yesterday… Does Bitwig not have good IAC Driver Bus support?)
However I am now running into two problems:
The MIDI channels seem to be set properly:
Drum 1 - MIDI chan 1 - IAC Driver Bus 1 - Track 1 in Ableton
Drum 2 - MIDI chan 2 - IAC Driver Bus 2 - Track 2 in Ableton
Drum 3 - MIDI chan 3 - IAC Driver Bus 3 - Track 3 in Ableton
The routing can’t be more separated unless I’m missing something… but when I hit Drums 2 or 3, they keep only triggering Drum 1!
Drum 1 sends a MIDI note that isn’t there. It seems to always be sending the lowest possible MIDI note (C#-2). What’s worse, is that it sustains this note indefinitely unless I disarm and re-arm the track.
EDIT: Okay, I figured out problem 1. Each MIDI Note Generator needs to be set to the right MIDI channel. Got it.
I still don’t understand problem 2: why does it stream C#-2 indefinitely? It makes it unusable.
