SoftStep 2, Midi Expander, MacBook Pro OS X 9.
I send midi ch 16 PC 0 thru 15 to select the preset to the SoftStep 2. I have set this up in standalone mode thru advanced editor.
If I try to use it standalone, not connected to computer, it only responds 3 to 4 times, then freezes and will not accept further midi ch 16 PC. I thought at first it was the midi expander power supply, but the same behavior occurs if I power the midi ch 16 PC with the midi cable plugged into the computer.
The only way midi ch 16 PC 0 thru 15 to select the preset works consistently without locking up is if I connect SoftStep 2 to the Mac and load the SoftStep 2 advanced editor and set it to Standalone mode. Then it never locks up and responds as expected to ch 16 PC 0 thru 15.
Surely this can't be the way it should work, so is the problem a bug in the SoftStep 2, or do I have a defective unit? I've noticed that loading the advanced editor sends some sort of initialization string to the SoftStep 2 based on the flickering of the 0 key LED and the display changing to PRGM.
