EG Pulse not recorded correctly

Post by Espiegel123 » Fri May 29, 2020 2:27 pm

If you use the EG Pulse drum machine AUv3 as a MIDI instrument in a MIDI track, tapping the pads (whether the pads are set as one-shots or in hold mode) does not record correctly. Only occasional pad taps are recorded. It’s pads record ok in other MIDI sequencers.

I did some investigation on the problem in this Audiobus forum thread, as at first it seemed to be a problem of EG Pulse. But later i also detected a bug concerning Auria Pros track midi recording for which i filed a bug report with steps on how to reproduce in another Auria Pro Forum thread

.

Here my findings and result of the discussion with the EG Pulse developer:

In one-shot pad mode EG Pulse sends

Code: Select all

For a pad press
  Note-On velocity=xx
  Note-On velocity=0   // but with a timestep minimal into the future
  
For a pad release
  Note-On velocity=0
  Note-On velocity=0   // but with a timestep minimal into the future
=> This (three note-offs, note-on+off in the same timeframe) clearly does not seem midi standard (even though it records correctly in Garageband).

.

The developer then mentioned that in hold pad mode EG Pulse sends

Code: Select all

For a pad press
  Note-On velocity=xx
  
For a pad release
  Note-On velocity=0
which seems is midi standard, but upon testing
=> still is not recorded correctly in Auria Pro.

After further investigation, i found out that the problem in this case is caused by Auria Pro.
=> AP is not recording such a ‚note-on velocity=0‘ to the track if issued from inside a midi plugin in the insert slots.
