So I added a Mininova to my studio setup.
If I play the Mininova itself, it sounds fine (whether Cubase is static or during playback). If I play it using an Impulse controller keyboard through Cubase (again, both static and during playback), it sounds fine. If I fire up the step editor and create a part for it, it sounds fine while I’m triggering notes from the step editor. When I then play back the MIDI part that I’ve created manually in the step editor (or recorded using either the Mininova or the Impulse), the notes sound garbled, like the Mininova is receiving some weird extra data alongside the simple MIDI notes I created.
This happens if the MIDI part in Cubase is set to send the signal to the Mininova via USB-MIDI, or via a regular MIDI port. It doesn’t happen with any of my other Midi instruments, or any of the VST instruments.
I’m utterly baffled - anybody got any ideas?
