I have had an MC8 for a bit now and moving to a completely Midi controlled rig. I bought and received the ML5 a few weeks ago and started to incorporate it into the board.
After testing everything out, I rewired everything but now the MC8 is not sending Midi out through the 5 pin connector. However, it is sending Midi thru the Omniport (chase bliss Tonal Recall) and through Usb- because I can see it in the editor.
Currently the signal path is:
MC8 midi out—> ML5 (ch. 5 midi in - Midi out) —> Hologram Microcosm ( ch. 4midi in— midi out) —> Timeline ( ch. 2 Midi in—midi out) —> Big sky ( ch. 3 Midi in)
I’ve been using the tonal recall/strymon’s with the mc8 for the past month or so without any issues and the ML5 has been working fine as well. I have tried 4 different midi cables and plugged the MC8 directly into the timeline as I have been for the past few weeks but it’s not communicating through the midi out at all.
I tried power cycling it and updating the firmware again (it was already up to date) without any success. I have a gig on Thursday and Sunday and I’ve rewired my board to be based around and controlled by the MC8/ML5 so if there are any possible fixes I’m all ears
I had a similar intermittent issue which just turned out to be the fact that the MC8 has 7 PIN DIN and its possible to connect it up " 1 out " either way, having marked up my cables…the embarrassing problem has melted away !
