I recently bought an Elektron Digitakt which is in part a sequencer designed to send parameter and note info via MIDI across 8 discrete channels (A-H). I've done a bit of troubleshooting with a MIDI monitor both over USB and a Thunderbolt Audio/MIDI interface.
My Digitakt is seemingly only able to send MIDI over Ch1 from track A.
Ch2 data is not showing up on the monitor despite track B being set up to send on Ch2. Even when all MIDI channels are set to “OFF” - the monitor still shows a stream of Ch1 data from track A when “Play” is pressed on the unit.
Also, just as a test I set my Keylab 49 MKii keyboard to send on Ch2 as per the manual’s instructions and in the monitor the data keeps coming in on Ch1. It seems like something is filtering / channeling data in a strange way.
I have only ever “plugged and played” with MIDI in the simplest terms so I am probably just lacking understanding with multi-channel use.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Any help would be appreciated.
FYI I'm using a 2015 Macbook Pro with a Focusrite Clarett 8Pre - attempting to control VST Synths in Logic Pro X.
