So I tried using several regular TRS cable’s to control the Iridium from the MC8, and had lots of high-end noise. Are all TRS cables made the same or is the Omniport TRS midi cable made differently? I’d like to control my other Strymon pedals with the Omniport TRS jacks on the MC8.
BTW- when I went back to the “Strymon” TRS-Midi cable all my noise issues disappeared.
What is the high end noise like? Is it like clicking sounds that happens each time you send a MIDI message?
It doesn’t really matter what TRS cables you use to connect the omniport to your devices. According to specifications, the MIDI receiving device should be completely isolated from the MIDI sending controller.
Hi- On a straight TRS cable the noise is almost like feedback, and changes when I try to change a setting- but a high-pitched tone. When I use the Strymon Midi Exp Cable to the Iridium it just works, but then I’m using Midi out to the TRS jack in on the Iridium.
Assuming you tried another TRS cable to eliminate a bad cable, are you sure you had the EXP/MIDI jack mode set to MIDI on the Iridium?
EDIT: Oops! I just noticed you said it was working OK when you returned to using the Strymon TRS/MIDI cable which means you must have had the jack mode set correctly on the Iridium. So, what was the issue? A bad TRS cable?
