Midi out of the sequencer ??

Does anybody know if it is possible to send midi notes from the sequencer to an external device/synth? :)

So Basically you are saying it is not possible at all to send midi out of the sequencer - only CV?
At least i see some discussion about that, not sure if it was later implimented in a firmware update or not

In the mod matrix you can select a sequencer track as a source and a MIDI output port and channel (Seq Out 1/2 Ch 1-16) as a destination. You can also select a destination directly from the sequencer track itself. Just make sure your velocity values are above zero in the sequencer track or you won't hear anything. At least that is my recollection.

Bryan D,  yeah that sounds about right. I seem to recall that velocity was the trick.

Give that shot Nokki and see how it goes.  Let us know if that doesn't work.

I got this working after seeing my mod matrix destinations greyed out, also.

This was never explained very well, and there is certainly a specific order in doing this.

1. Lay your notes on Track 1.
2. Copy and paste Track 1 to another track.
3. Set mod source as that new track.
4. Set mod destination to Seq Out (choose your appropriate output# and channel#),  Out1Ch2, for instance. Use either the sequencer or the mod matrix for this, and ignore it being greyed out.
5. Now you have to manually go in and raise the velocity on the individual steps of the *new* track, since  when track 1 was copied to another track, the velocity data was not copied.

Try Seq Out 1 Ch 1 even if it's greyed out. Try also Ch 16 even if it's greyed out. I think one of those worked for me, but I'll have to check when I'm in front of my P2. It's been a while since I've sent MIDI tracks out of it.

Try Seq Out 1 Ch 1 even if it's greyed out. Try also Ch 16 even if it's greyed out.

No dice, either way.  :-\

I know I have gotten this to work before, but unfortunately it takes a  lot of screwing around to use MIDI out of this sequencer.  I don't bother with it because of that.
