Here is my issue:
When I hit play or record in Cubase, all the built in sequencers in my external hardware synths start playing.
Here’s what I want:
An outgoing midi filter to filter out FA/FB/FC (midi start, continue and stop) messages. I don’t have a need for anything in my studio to start playing automatically, but I DO need constant midi clock to be sent.
Here’s an explanation of my setup:
I have many external hardware synths with built in sequencers and arps. I want to be able to use those in time with each other, so I use Cubase as my master clock and send out from my pc (windows 10) via usb to a MOTU Midi Express XT (8 in, 8 out) around the studio. All synths successfully receive clock and I can play all of them over midi and have all of their sound routed back through Apollo X16 interface. I have all of them internally routed in cubase as external vsti. Whether I have tracks enabled or not, because FA/FB/FC is tied to the midi clock (which is always sent), hitting play or record in Cubase will cause all the external sequencers to start playing.
Previously, how I solved this problem was by running a midi uno (1 in/out) through a an external midi filter (Midi Solutions Event Processor Plus) and then into the Motu Midi Express XT via midi (instead of usb). I did this because I couldn’t find another solution to my problem and I was tired of looking, but now I’m streamlining my studio and this seems like a really stupid thing to have to deal with.
So, how do I go about fixing this issue?
