R7 Ext. Midi (matrix to synth) Question

G'day mates,

I have just begun to experiment with 7's External Midi Instrument and I am noticing a puzzling problem.

I have a connection from my Mac to a Dave Smith Poly Evolver Keyboard (via Roland USB to midi in/out device). The synth is receiving clock from Reason and playing the note and gate information from matrix properly. However, at the start of each Reason sequencer loop cycle (e.g. bar 1) the synth is also receiving a note on message that triggers it's step sequencer - and then there are two patterns playing simultaneously. I've checked the global parameters of the Poly Evolver and I don't see a way to stop a sequencer note on message.

Should I be troubleshooting this within Reason or within the global synth settings?

Buggered in Brisbane,

Mark

Not knowing anything about the Poly Evolver, this is what I'd think/do:
If a device is receiving a 'note on', then Reason must be sending it, no? So I'd start there. To find exactly what Reason is sending, you can create a loopback by hooking the MIDI out back into the MIDI in using a short MIDI cable. Create an ID8 (because it's simple) and put it's track into record and see what gets recorded. If there's no note there, then Reason isn't sending a note - if there is a note, you can begin your search to see where it's coming from. Hope that helps. :-)

Thanks Giles. I have a suspicion it's more a matter of what the synth is detecting than what the matrix or EM instrument device is passing through. Cheers.
