Can't get USB or MIDI keyboard to work with B3
« on: July 05, 2019, 10:37:09 pm »
Sound out works
other Arturia plugins work fine with same hardware
using keylab61 connected via USB
I have it selected both as USB and thru its MIDI connection running KL61->MIDI OUT->MOTU MIDI XT
either setup works fine with other Arturia and other company instruments, only B3 and another Artuturia instrument fail to work
restarted app, reboot, restarted keybooard.

Which midi channel are you sending on? Tried midi channel 1?
Which specific applications does'nt work? In example - not all applications is recieving on all midi channels dy default and B3 is one of them as it has 3 keyboard manuals including the pedals, but you are almost certain to get sound, if you use midi channel 1 - at least for the factory presets. There are different good reasons for this, that require to learn about the individual applications.

Are your audio/ midi settings setups the same for all your Arturia applications? A screenshot might be useful.

What's 10.14.6? Mac OS?

BTW: I see no apparant reason to use midi out unless to control other external midi hardware. I would use USB for software. But  perhaps you have a good reason? If so, then i'm interested in knowing and learning.
