BUG: LOCAL OFF not working as intended

BUG: LOCAL OFF not working as intended
« on: August 25, 2016, 08:15:17 AM »
Regardless if I use the Pro2 over USB or midi, i can't change patches on the pro2 when local is off
It changes the number, but not the patch name or sound. This works fine when using the Pro2 to control other synths.
So it seems that the patch change message is sent in local off (as it can be recieved by other synths) but not accepted on the way back in. While a correct midi loop is in place.
When the Pro2 is in local off, I can only do patch changes via an external sequencer.
I consider this a BUG.

I'm using Cubase, what is it that you did put in the M4L to make the roundtrip work?
I'm extremely annoyed that i can use the program knob for any synth except the Pro2 itself :(

OK, have a look here for how it works: http://dsiforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=6576&hilit=bobthedog#p61072

I'm pretty sure they fixed this in the P12 with it's last update so I guess it will be fixed when we get the next P2 update.

I do hope so, this is really annoying.

I'd be interested in whether this was ever fixed as well.

With the latest production release of the Pro2 OS from some time last year, version 1.3.0, previous issues with program changes with Local Control set to OFF were resolved. You still must in a MIDI feedback loop in order for program changes to work with local off. This is the same with all of our instruments.

Setting Local Control to OFF disconnects the front panel controls and the keyboard from the internal synth engine. The transmitted MIDI data from the controls/keyboard must be looped back to the synth's MIDI In in order to affect the synth engine. This includes program changes.
