Bass pedal problems

Post by Rudders » Sun May 10, 2015 7:57 am

I have connected my Ringway 600 organ to Midzer via a midi to USB connector
Both manuals work OK but the bass doesnt work and the screen flashes when i play a bass pedal.
both systems are configured to the same channel solo 1, acc 2, bass 3, and i have checked with midiox and the organ is transmitting the correct information. anyone any ideas please

I am puzzled by the "screen flashes" symptom. I can't think of anything that would cause what I would describe as a flash on the screen.

Which style and version of the Miditzer are you using?

Could you tell us what MIDIOX sees for the lowest C on the accompaniment and for the lowest C on the pedals?

Would you be able to post a screen shot of your Miditzer Settings Input tab?

Is the "screen flash" a screen rewrite after a "midi panic"?

Rudders, are the pedals producing any other MIDI messages besides Note On and Note Off? You might have to dig into the MIDIOX settings to ensure that it is not filtering out any messages. Some devices produce various types of system MIDI messages that are not usually of interest but which clutter up the MIDIOX display. MIDIOX has filters that can suppress such messages. I don't know if those are enabled by default.

thanks for the replies.
manual and bass pedal play C2 but it appears the pedal is transmitting all notes off before the C2 note on and C2 note off.
the screen flashing on closer inspection seems to be the manuals.
attached is a screen shot as requested.
i will look at the organ midi settings to see if there is anything wrongly set up with the pedals.
regards to all

Paul,

In the Miditzer Settings on the Piston Tab there is a check box for "Enable MIDI Panic". If that is checked, clear it and see if that makes the problem go away.

Jim

looking at the screen flashing closer if i play a bass pedal continually sometimes the manuals flash and sometimes the pedals
i cant find anything wrong in the organ settings.
it is the same on both versions

Paul

It seems like you are comfortable with MIDIOX. Do you know how to set up MIDIOX to receive your keyboard input and pass it along to the Miditzer? If so, try doing that and then adding a filter so that only the Note On and Note Off messages are sent to the Miditzer.
