Default Trigger problems

I'm using the MD24 to trigger a Pollard Syndrum and a Tama DS200. The Syndrum will trigger when I release the key on my keyboard and the Tama triggers when I press the key and when I release the key. The units work properly when I use a Korg KPR-77s tom trigger outputs to trigger the drum brains. Any suggestions?

Hi Bionary, welcome.

You might try using the different MD24 output modes. There are "inverted note trigger" and "note toggle" modes. These might solve your issues immediately. For details, see the list of output modes in the firmware user manual.

Otherwise, you might ask some of the other users what they have done to get their triggering working well:

Hope this was helpful.

Hi John.

I have two MIDI interfaces (m-audio Audiophile USB and MIDIport 8x8) that I have tried to use the SQWERL tool with. Both of them come up with the system timed out error. Do you think it is possible that they will send SYSEX data but not work with SQWERL? Could you write the SYSEX for me that will put the MD24 in the different trigger modes? I will then send that to the device and see if this solves my problem. Thanks.

Hi Bionary,

I have used a MIDISport 4x4 for some time without much trouble. It should work ok.

Here's a sysex that sets the first three MD24 outputs each to respond to the same MIDI note (#60--middle C on channel 1), but each with a different mode--note trigger, inverted note trigger, and note toggle. This should make it easy to compare them.

This applies to firmware version 1.3.

Code:
F0 00 01 5D 03 01

00 01 00 3C
01 02 00 3C
02 03 00 3C

F7
First column: MD24 output number.
Second column: output mode.
Third column: channel from DIP switch (all positions "off" for channel 1)
Fourth column: MIDI note number (3Ch = 60)
