Modules only respond to Midi CH 1

Post by Twindle Jumper » Wed Nov 13, 2019 7:15 pm

Hello, I'm trying to get my keystep working on multiple channels with Sunvox. No matter which channel I assign the output, Sunvox picks up the midi input and shows that there is input with the small green dot, but modules only respond when they are assigned to channel 1. If I assign them to always respond to channel 3, for example, and set the controller to channel 3, I get the green dot when I press keys, but no response from the modules.
Can anyone help? :)

In the SunVox Preferences, MIDI section, where you have your controller listed, is it set up for a single channel there, or for "any" channel?

I have it selected twice, once on channel 1, and once on another channel, I've tried a few different ones. I've confirmed with Pocket MIDI that I'm getting midi messages out on all of my channels.

Ok, I've got it. :)
I just had to set the controller to any. like suggested. Makes sense.
Now, is it possible to send midi clock out to the keystep so that its sequencer can play in time with the loops inside sunvox?

Not in current SunVox, I think it might be on a to-do list but nightradio would need to clarify on that. I've been able to successfully use an external MIDI utility to convert SunVox multisynth note output to MIDI clock messages, but have only done that experimentally.

Hmm, maybe I can achieve this too with Pocket MIDI. I'll have to tinker.
