Midi Expander not working

Postby unguitar » Sat Apr 18, 2015 8:18 am

Hello,

I am trying to set up my SS2 with a Midi Expander, which was originally bought with my SS1.

It looks like I am hooking up things properly as the SS runs as it supposed to and the M.E. green light is properly lit.

The wrong things are that whenever I press the SS buttons ( which are sending midi commands) the midi out red light on the M.E. doesn't blink and no midi is sent out.

Any advice ?
thank you,
Luca

Have you made sure that your presets are sending MIDI to the Softstep Expander port in the editor?
Are you powering the SS or the Expander? What do you have the SS/Expander connected too?

Also, the MIDI Out LED is actually the yellow one.

yes, the SS is set on a bank of active midi controls.
How can I be sure the SS is sending midi to Midi Expander ?

connections are as follows:
mini usb from SS to Expander's "to SS EXPAND".
regular usb from Exapnder's "POWER" to pc usb port.

Go into the editor and set your output port to the expander on each pad.

You should see a yellow indicator when you press the pad.
