I received the Axoloti today and after going through the installation user guide (winusbcompat on a Windows 7 machine was integral), I made my first (failed) attempt to get the CRAFTsynth (USB) to host the Behringer UMX250 (MIDI).
I'm hoping you can give me some guidance for what I'm doing wrong on this seemingly simple first project/patch.
Here's how everything is hooked up (testing/running in LIVE mode):
-Axoloti-to-PC via microUSB (connection successful; no errors; green LED; firmware 1.0.12)
-Behringer UMX250 (powered by 9V wall power supply) MIDI OUT to MIDI IN of Axoloti
-CRAFTsynth (powered by USB port of Axoloti) MicroUSB to full size USB of Axoloti
-Headphones plugged into headphone jack of CRAFTsynth
Here's what is in the patch:
New patch; open tb/midi/utils/midithru object
input = din (I also tried omni)
output = usb host port 1
led = on
When I go LIVE, I see a red LED blink for any button/key press of the Behringer UMX250, but there is no sound output from the CRAFTsynth. I can play the CRAFTsynth as normal since (a) it has power from the Axoloti, and (b) my headphones are plugged directly into it.
Is there more to midithru hosting than what I've outlined above? Do I need to map the CC numbers of the 25 key keybed of the Behringer UMX250 controller to the CRAFTsynth somehow?
For output of the midithru object, I have the option of USB host port 1-4, Internal Port 1-2 and USB device port 1. I assume USB device port is the microUSB port, but what are the 4 USB host ports and the internal ports? For my attempt above, I was mostly using USB host port 1, but I did try going LIVE with all of them; no luck.
I plan on going through the tutorials this weekend; perhaps the answer is in one of them. If so, I apologize. In the meantime, anyone care to school me on how to get these two items to work together?
Quick repeat of my goal from my first post above: I'd like to play the CRAFTsynth (it only has 5 notes or "keys") with the Behringer's 25 key keyboard without routing through a computer/DAW. Since I'm learning, I'm fine with controlling all other CRAFTsynth parameters (osc shape, lfo, fx, etc...) directly from the unit itself (for now ).
Thanks for your time and assistance!
