I ran into some space issues and thought I’d connect my timeline to one of the omniports so I habe the missing space that I lose when plugging a midi cable into the Midi In of the MC8. So basically I took a TRS-to-5pin-midi cable and connected the MC8s Omniport to the Timeline.
Strangely, no matter with what setting for the Omniport, the Timeline doesn’t react properly. First, it (obviously) only reacts when I set the Omniport to Midi Standard. The first few PC messages work fine, but after around three, four preset changes the TL doesn’t react anymore at all. After around one minute without hitting any button it scrolls through all chosen presets from one minute ago…
I tried the TL as the only device connected to the MC8 but get the same results. Is there anything wrong with the cable??? Do you need a specific TRS/Midi cable to make that work? The same cable works perfectly when I connect my Specular Tempus to the Omniport.
