OB6 not receiving midi

OB6 not receiving midi
« on: July 11, 2019, 09:06:50 AM »
Hello everyone,

i have checked other topics trying to find an answer to my problem, unfortunatly i didn't which is why i'm creating this topic.

Here is my issue : The OB6 won't receive midi date from Ableton. Ableton does receive notes being played on the OB6, but they are not being played back with the midi clip from Ableton.

The OB6 is plugged into my computer via USB.
The OB6 is configured to receive date via CC, midi out is on USB as well as midi clock.

Am i missing something?

Thank you for your help,
Barresic

I assume that you have either set <ALL channels> in Ableton, or selected something from 1-16 and match channels across the two devices.

I would start out by downloading MIDI-OX.
With this you can do several useful things

1. You can see that there are active USB-MIDI ports from both devices
2. You can monitor 'traffic' and see if keystrokes, etc, are being sent
...lots of other useful MIDI tools, and it's free

Yes, i tried both "All Channels" or "Channel 1" on both devices.
Thank you, i'll give it a try.

Do you have any other sound modules that you can use to test?
