Sustain device blocks modulation and pitchbend?

Post by Mr D » Sat Nov 19, 2022 3:56 pm

Hi folks,

I'm using the M4L device linked below to trick my Behringer Poly D synth to respond to held pedal sustain.

It works, but the problem is it (the device) blocks modulation and pitchbend messages.

Anyone have any idea why this is or if it's fixable?

Thanks!

You are only sending notes to midiformat, so you are blocking everything else.

You got to connect the outputs of midiselect (except the last "raw" one) back into midiformat.

Thanks for the info!

I didn't create the device, i downloaded it from somewhere a few years ago (i don't remember where)

Unfortunately i have no clue how to do what you suggest (i never messed with ML4 before apart from using a couple of devices).

Do you know of any tutorials that explain how to tweak the device in the way needed to get pitch and modulation to pass through?

Or if it's very easy and someone has the time to tweak it, i'd be eternally grateful!

Actually, I was wrong, I confused midiselect with midiparse, you would have to actually add a midiparse.

Anyways, I made an edit:
