Midi not working [Fixed]
« on: March 02, 2020, 02:51:04 AM »
I just finished building the preen, it turns on no problem, it makes sound with the instrument button but I can't get a midi keyboard to work with it. All the connections are good, I've set everything to channel 1, usb midi is off... There must be something I'm missing, can anyone help? I love this thing and really want to get it working! Thanks

There's no secret with the midi. It should work without problem.

You can check the following  :
. The 6N137 in the correct position as well as the diode.
. The 2 midi in wires are not crossed, and that midi IN and midi OUT are not mixed.
. Midi channel in the setting is what you expect.
. Check electronic connection from the pfm2 PCB pins to the end of you midi cable (with a multimeter).

Yep, I installed the din ports upside-down and the wires were crossed.... Oops. Anyway works great now thanks for replying quickly! One other question if I can ask, there's a sound when changing patches, it's the same in between every patch, is that normal? I'm sure it's fine just thought I'd ask. Thanks again!

Yes it's normal to hear a BEEP when the patch you played is still ringing out and you go change it to another.
