I would like to start a thread about MIDI jitter.
I have been having some problems with MIDI jitter. I originally thought it was a latency issue until I realized that MIDI jitter is a is actually what it is called. The problem I experience when playing is that the response from the my synth module is delayed in an unpredictable and random way with some notes being totally ignored.
I want to be clear, I am not talking about recording, DAW, computer interfaces or usb. My problem is live performance.
I have a old midi instrument (IVL - The Grid, vintage 1984 or so) that puts out two separate channels, one for midi treble and one for midi bass (midi channels 1 and 3). I combine those with my foot controller using a Kenton-4 Midi Merger. I have eliminated the merger and the foot controller as problems.
I think it is caused by too much data being received by my synth module (Integra 7)? (Note I have this issue with every synth module I have tried, Yamaha, Korg, etc.)
I have alleviated the problem somewhat by reducing what is called "instrument velocity dynamics", but this is not a perfect solution.
I don't think the interface is sending aftertouch messages because when I connect to MIDIOX and analyze the midi stream I do not see any aftertouch or channel pressure messages.
Anyone else have experience with eliminating midi jitter?
Is it possible to filter data to remove jitter?
I have a MIDI Solutions Event Processor, can I use this to somehow filter the data?
