Im trying to get the MOTOR49 to pass software MIDI data programmed in the digital audio workstation Reaper to a hardware external synth, but Im having difficulty.
Connecting the external synth to the MOTOR 49's MIDI OUT port, selecting the MOTOR49 in the MIDI Hardware Output dropdown, and sending data on channel 1 in Reaper results in no MIDI data being sent. If the external synth is connected to the MOTOR49s MERGE/THRU port, with the same options selected in software, the result is a stuck MIDI note on regardless of playback or key press, and garbled MIDI when attempting playback from Reaper.
Im 100% certain this is a MOTOR49 issue because I can easily send the correct MIDI data to the external synth using another an Axiom 49's MIDI USB Out functionality. Im curious to know how this is accomplished on the MOTOR49.
