I am a keen twiddler and expert in nothing… I just like making sounds/noises that please me!
I have a couple of issues which I am sure have been addressed in the past, but at the risk of looking foolish am asking afresh for a little help on my points
I mostly use my Mod for guitar noodling, but now want to broaden my use to include midi keyboard and hardware and software synths
PC with DAW (Ableton) connected by USB to
- Novation Launchkey
- Behringer Model D
- Arturia BeatStep
- Scarlett 4i4 (inc Midi In/Out 5pin ports)
- Creative E-MU Xmidi 2x2 USB to 5 pin midi interface
- Mod Duo connected via 5 pin midi to
* FCB1010 controller
I want to be able to use the ModDuo as a midi instrument controlled via my keyboard. As standard, I am unable to see the Mod as a viable midi source from within my DAW.
I eventually found Audio Through USB - MOD Wiki (moddevices.com) and now the Mod shows up as a midi instrument on my PC. However, when I try to use it, I get no output. If I connect the XMidi interface to the 5pin midi port and select the appropriate midi output in my DAW, that works fine, but I do not really want to use the 5 pin port as that is used by the FCB1010.
I am afraid the advice found so far was a bit confusing constructed as it was over a series of submissions some of which discussed other similar issues not related to mine.
I have another issue which may be behind my problem. When I create a new pedalboard in the Mod Web interface, I get the standard patched through audio connections and an unused Midi input.
Occasionally when building / refreshing the pedal board, the Midi input disappears
For example, after refreshing the above view, I get this…
I would also appreciate being told how to disable the 3rd and 4th audio channels which I accidentally enabled by rushing through the guidance in the linked post above.
All help and guidance would be most gratefully received.
Thanks in advance
