OB6 Desktop - USB to Ableton issue

OB6 Desktop - USB to Ableton issue
« on: September 22, 2018, 03:34:26 PM »
Hi, I'm trying to record midi from my OB6 Desktop into Ableton on a midi track via the usb port on the back of my OB6 with no luck. 

I'm using my Prophet 6 (midi out) to control the OB6 (midi in).

I've set the midi out in globals on the OB6 to usb and made sure the input on the midi track in Ableton is set to OB6.  I've also made sure all settings in midi preferences in Ableton are turned on for the OB6. 

Can't seem to figure this one out  ;D

All the best,
Tyler

You might try either:
1. If your USB cable to the OB-6 is going through a hub, you might try running it direct from the computer. Some hubs don't work with MIDI over USB
2. Try connecting it with MIDI cables
DSI OB-6, Nord Electro 3HP & 6HP, Roland SoundCanvas SC55mkii, Beatstep Pro, Minibrute 2S, MPD18 (+mpcstuff), Roland TD-4 V-drums, Fender-Rhodes Stage MK1, Reaper, plus dozens of acoustic instruments and mikes.
