I’am having trouble with sending (MIDI out) commands to my external Korg Z1 synthesizer. Sending the commands from my MIDI track causes no problems but the problems occur when i use the controller lanes.
I have configured many controller lanes within Cubase and the synthesizer so i can control most of the effects of my synthesizer from Cubase. This works fine and causes no problems.
If i make small adjustments in the controller lanes then it causes no problems but whenever i make big adjustments, such as, fast curves or use more controller lanes simultaniously then the problems happen.
Some of the commands get received a few seconds later,
Some commands get skipped or effects keeps hanging at a certain level,
The commands don’t get received at all.
Using MIDI in with Cubase, or sending effects from the synthesizer, also causes no problems.
(although i don’t use that quite often)
I used to think that my old and sluggish computer was the problem but now i have a totally new setup
and the same problems remain.
My previous setup:
PC 3.4 GHz
Memory: 2 GB, DDR 2
Audio Interface: Tascam US-122L
Korg Z1 MOSS Synthesizer
My setup today:
iMac 3.5 GHz i5
Memory: 16 GB, DDR 3
Audio Interface: Steinberg MR816x
2x Korg Z1 MOSS Synthesizer (i recently bought a second one)
Cubase 8 Pro
The problems are just as bad on both computers with both of my synthesizers.
I would love to hear what causes this or what’s “most likely” to be the problem?
Any help or advice is much appreciated.
