JP8000 Not receiving Midi, 3 days of searching..help!

Postby terrible.dee » 09:54, 17 June 2015

To make a long story short..

Bought a JP, sounds great,

Records MIDI into my daw, I can hear the JP while I am recording,

Try and play back the midi I've recorded....nothing

what I have tried:

-Logic proX, Midi sport 2x2, roland UM-ONe and M-audio uno (All tried at different times) JP upper and lower set to 1 and 2 respectively, external instrument on Logic software and Midi track : In JP-8000 (properly set in AMS) audio 1,2 to which the JP is wired. Create new midi instrument in environment, Wire to physical input.

While not my main DAWS, I have also tries Abelton and Reaper....nothing

I am out of answers and places to look on the internet....is my midi in port screwed, or id=s there something I am missing?

I love this board and don't want to send it back to guitar center, my MS-2000 and I will be all alone again

Thanks all

Have you tried to hook up only the MS-2000 and JP-8000 together to check MIDI.

Yep,

No go on that too,

Man....I'm really MISSING the JP....only had it for a couple days but I really dig it.

Only option I scan think of is to remove the cover and see if the solder points for the midi in are all good,

I usually screw things up the first time though, so I'm none to optimistic about doing it, adding Midi out to a volca is one thing, trying to do surgery on this is a whole other level.....

Any other ideas anyone? Or words of advice?

But as of now, the plan is......I'm going in

feel free to talk me out of it
