I followed the Morningstar tutorial for using the MC8 with Nixie software making all the setting changes (Cross Midi Thru On and Midi Thru Off…). Nixie finds and shows the settings for the Timeline and Big Sky but when I try to make a name change to the Timeline, nothing changes.
Here is my midi setup:
MC8 (channel 16) midi out to ML5 (channel 1) midi in
ML5 midi out to Timeline (channel 3) midi in
Timeline midi out to Big Sky (channel 4) midi in
Big Sky midi out to MC8 midi in
As a test, I bypassed the ML5 in the midi chain (midi out of MC8 to midi in Timeline and everything else the same), and it allowed me to make name changes with Nixie.
Is there a setting I need to change on the ML5? Any ideas how I can get this to work?
The ML5 does not pass large SysEx messages through, which is what Nixie is sending to communicate with the Strymon pedals and vice versa. The best solution would be to use the Omniport MIDI OUT to communicate with the ML5.
