MidiSprout with Mininova Midi issue?
« on: February 06, 2018, 10:00:52 AM »

Ive got an issue after connecting my MdiSprout to my Novation mininova via channel 1. All is fine until i try to change the sound on the work station then the message 'Unsaved LosChng?' appears on the mininova display each time i change a sound. Ive reset the machine and cables etc but wondering if the MidiSprout might be sending spurious code somehow? Anyone experienced any odd reactions on midi devices?

Thanks for any help,

Hey Adrian!  The MIDI Sprout sends MIDI note data on Channel 1 and MIDI CC 80 , you might be getting the error due to the MIDI CC hitting the novation. 

I can admit that i've sent more than one bad byte over MIDI during the arch of this project, and it aint' hard to mess up a low voltage 33,250 baud signal... but I doubt your sprout is sending bad data.  Most likely it is sending 'too much' data, the sprout is 5 note polyphonic and has the wiggly CV so that is probably pissing off the mono novation.
