OB-6 issue with Keystep sequencer

OB-6 issue with Keystep sequencer
« on: January 05, 2018, 09:04:07 AM »
I have the Keystep connected to my OB-6 directly via MIDI. It works fine when playing the keys, however when I use it as a sequencer, the sounds often become either silent and muddy when I record play back. When this occurs, I can only recover the "real" sound by pressing a preset selection on my synth again. Also, sometimes the synth sound is replaced by what sounds like only an oscillator slowly rising in pitch. Thanks for any help.

That's weird.  I've used the same setup without any issue of it changing the patch.  The "muddy" you mentioned- is that just that the Keystep is sending more than 6 voices simultaneously and the OB6 (limited to 6) is cutting some out?

Op,

You should I list how you have your gear setup. If you have midi loops, not turning off local on, etc, this can cause you issues.

You may also need to filter out/turn off some CC commands....
