MC8 Routing Boss ES-8 Edito

Has anyone had any luck using the MC8 to connect through to the Boss ES-8 switcher.

All I can get is the following

Hi, are you trying to access the ES via the USB Port of the MC8? I doubt this will work. The ES8 is very picky about midi interfaces. I’ve tried several, but the only one I could get working was the recommended Roland UM One.

Not sure if the ES will work. Did you try turning Cross MIDI Thru ON and then MIDI thru off?

Have tried all the above and just decided to use another midi interface. Thanks for the suggestions…
