Re: EDP stumped
It was a good idea but it didn't work.
I set the EDP to MIDI channel 1 and the Alesis to MIDI channel 3, but I
still have the same problem. The Alesis has a menu option that disables
sending MIDI drum note messages. Just for grins I enabled the note messages
and you were right, the EDP goes nuts when it receives them.
Anyway, I'm still stuck. Any other ideas?
