I am seeking independent confirmation of a phenomenon I am seeing in both my Pitchfactor and Timefactor. If you have a 'Factor stompbox, a MIDI interface and a cable, it should only take a moment to test and see if you see the same thing. I'd really appreciate it. I have a thread open on the Eventide forums, one other user says he's seeing it, but the Eventide folks are not able to replicate it. If you think you can help, read on... thx... --- It would appear that the PF and TF are occasionally sending unwanted MIDI messages when a) MIDICLOCK is being sent OR passed through the Factor pedal and b) The algorithm is changed. (see the Eventide thread for more details) I used MIDI-OX to log some of these messages. They include Start and Stop commands, pitch bends on various channels, 'sysex end', aftertouch, etc. Code: TIMESTAMP IN PORT STATUS DATA1 DATA2 CHAN NOTE EVENT 000F596B 12 -- D8 F1 -- 9 --- Channel Aft 000F9701 12 -- FB -- -- -- --- Continue 000F9E15 12 -- B0 E8 A0 1 --- Control Change 000FB3C0 12 -- FA -- -- -- --- Start 000FB3CE 12 -- FE -- -- -- --- Active Sensing 000FBC0B 12 -- FC -- -- -- --- Stop 000FCF74 12 -- B0 48 00 1 --- CC: Release Time 000FD588 12 -- F7 Buffer: 0 Bytes SysEx End 000FDE99 12 -- EA F0 F4 11 --- Pitch Bend I tested this with both the latest production firmware (3.0) and the new public beta (3.5). HOW TO REPLICATE THE ISSUE (i think): Hook your 'Factor's MIDI output into your computer's MIDI interface input. Download, install and load MIDI-OX (freeware), or load up your preferred MIDI monitoring software. Set your 'Factor pedal's MIDI settings to: CLK OUT: ON OUTPUT: XMT Make sure it's sending 'timing clock.' Check your monitoring software, you should see them scrolling along. (If you're using MIDI OX and you're not seeing it, hit the "display raw midi input" button, and/or go to "options>MIDI devices" and check your settings). OK now once you're seeing the Timing Clock messages, start switching between algorithms. You can do this either by turning the encoder knob (bottom left knob), or cycling through the presets. You should start catching occasional MIDI messages that are NOT Timing Clock. If legit, this is potentially an issue if you use your Factor pedal as MIDI clock master and/or upstream of anything that responds to Start, Stop, Aftertouch, Pitch Bend etc! That's enough info for now.... any questions, don't hesitate to ask, thanks for reading!
