Hi, I’m also no expert but I can try to help. So it sounds like the drum machine is configured to listen on the auto channel, or the other synth is matched to the drum machine channel. Am I correct to assume the drum machine is on channel 10, and the auto channel on the DN keys is also set to 10 (or as appropriate that corresponds to the drum machine)?
hold down function while powering it on to get to the reset menu, but only do that if you feel it’s necessary.
just sounds like a config issue, or as was mentioned - the part of the config which sends notes out, and linking a channel to a device. but the sync needs to be set if dn will be the clock and transport to sequence the drum module.
He k ows what he’s doing. Asking is a troubleshooting question right before going to bed. That way while he’s all cozy in bed, we’re obsessing over how to fix the problem. And when he wakes up refreshed, all he’ll need do is scroll to the last post that says WE FIGURED IT OUT!
Nope, not falling for that again…but before I go, what is the make and model of both devices. I need to know so I can D/L the manuals and see whats up.
Side note, I just realized that usually the only time I RTFM is when I’m helping someone else.
he’s making a joke, that’s probably the nicest guy you’ll ever talk to on the internet. but wer’re not going to get anywhere without going through your settings so just get back when you have time, no one is rtfm’ing and if they do just poo poo on them. no harm no foul.
do not literally throw your fesces though, that’s unsanitary. unless you’re into that and then who am I to judge.
this should not be a RTFM post - but for people who come by with the same problem and are not shy of reading manuals:
there, one could find a pretty clear explanation:
the Digitone keyboard only controls the Digitone itself. to play external gear with the keyboard, you have to switch the digi keys to controller mode:
-> 3. PANEL LAYOUT AND CONNECTORS (page 14 Button 33)
what you control is setup here:
14.5.4 MIDI EXT MENU (p.75)
same principle goes with the analog keys
(factory reset is described on p. 85 - and you don’t have to do it, if you are willing to read p.14 and p.75)
