I have a quite specific question that keeps me awake at night for a couple of weeks now:
I'm using a vintage guitar midi controller (1986 Ibanez IMG2010) with a its companion 24-pin Ibanez MC1 midi converter and a Yamaha TX81Z tone generator. So definitely an homage 80's setup which works amazingly!
However, when I connect the midi out from the MC1 converter to my old and trusty M-Audio 1010 interface with a standard 5 pin midi cable and play through some virtual instruments hosted in Cakewalk Sonar, all of the note-off are very abrupt and clicky (since audibly the notes are cut off with no mercy and the natural fade out).
If I record a passage and play it back, everything is smooth as glass. If I play or record a passage using my midi keyboard, everything is smooth as glass... So my guess is that MC1 sends out some vintage note-off message that newer software does not like at all. Are there any solutions to this unfortunate problem?
Thank you very much in advance!
p.s. Here's a screenshot of MIDI OX capturing a note-on / note-off sequence played with the IMG2010 guitar, in the midst of the spamming of ''Active Sensing''
