Layer B - Instrument 1 resetting
« on: December 17, 2020, 09:26:09 AM »
Hi,  just going through the final touches of my Bank and have hit a snag, in that when I send the SYSEX over USB or MIDI (Sysex Librarian), then send it back, on some patches, not many but 4/5 it seems to reset the Pitch of Instrument 1, Layer B only.  Has anyone had this before?  Just means I can't put the Bank out yet, not without this caveat.

Have you tried the "“Save Edit Layer State”  in Global Menu ? Not sure, if it does anyting about your issue, since i never tried it...but...

That only saves if yhou were in Layer B the last time you worked on it, so if you reboot, it will show Layer B...Sadly doesn't affect it.

Can't help I am afraid. Have you raised a ticket with Sequential?

I'm not sure if it is related, but SYSEX transfer do seem a little buggy, and I hope Sequential will fix, but I am still waiting on the problem I reported for edit buffer transfers in this thread see my post on NOV 27 2019 and the PDF bug report. This one badly affected OSC pitch on some programs. I had to remove edit buffer transfer from my program.

If it is only a few patches to fix up, could you provide instructions for how to do that manually, if it is just pitch adjustment? Not ideal I know, but it gets your patch collection out there.
Regards
Derek

Are you using USB or MIDI ports ? i have read some comments about oyher Synths (pro 3 i think ?) that the MIDI ports were more reliable, and with less bugs .

Yes, I've been in touch with them and have put details in the my release about it and steps to rectify.
