Yocto midi out what does it do

Postby mex » Jan 5th, '17, 19:34

Hi,
i just finished my yocto , works pretty fine, except my noise section got some issues i guess, my snares do not sound very snappy, but i guess that problem is too difficult to describe in here :)

Anyway, what i am wondering right now, why is there an midi out built in?
Can I use it, what signals does it give out on its own, i tried to start some external gear with it, but i dont know the channel nor nothing, it also seems, the input midi channel is general number 1 or it reacts to every channel? I just did test it with channel one.

Any more information besides that lousy 4 pages manual :P anyone.

Thanks a lot.cheers

MIDI out is there because the yocto sequencer outputs MIDI data
it outputs MIDI sync (so you can slave another device with it), and it probably also outputs the note mapped from the drums as they're played (so you can send them into a drum module, or record them into a DAW, etc..)

MIDI sync has no "channel", notes do

Hey guys

I am all built and working but I am confused by the midi out.

Midi in, din sync in and expander mode work but not midi out

I assume it sends out midi start/stop and tempo info from the sequencer but I cannot get it to start my analog four.

Am i missing something?

Is Your A4 setup to recieve clk, start + stop?

Hey man

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah the a4 is set up for clock receive and transport receive but not starting from the yocto.

Is there anything I need to do on the yocto to initialise the midi out?

I’m assuming I should just have it in pattern play mode and hit start and it should send out midi clock?

Cheers as always.

Just for the record:

The current code only sends Clock and start/stop. No midi note output is implemented.
It's quite easy to implement, but there should also be a way to turn it off imho, and providing a decent mechanism for settings like this is more advanced.

Yes this is the Output of MIDI Out. I like that the code will send all notes and without start/stop like a standaard MIDI Out
Then it's possible to send all data to another Midi systems or making backup on you PC. When I use the MIDI-out to DAW the program is stuck because the Sync Clock.

Maybe somebody can adjust the Firmware for this. For both Yocto V2 and Nava V1.02 so that the user make a choice.
I use the follow firmware yocto_v2_002 and Nava_v1_027 For programming I use a TL866 programmer.

I made a hardware interface for the trigger signals. You can adjust the pulse width and use it for the outputs Trigger1, Rimshot and Handclaps for trigger my another sequencers and Modular Systems. So it's better to remove the the sync/trigger signals from the MIDI.
