I just received my OP-1 yesterday so forgive me if I’m missing a very simple thing. I’m equally new to OPForums. I searched my issue here and tried a couple things but haven’t found a solution. I’ve also read through the official guide. I know these questions tend to cause people to get upset but I genuinely would like some help getting my OP-1 and Ableton set up and running. I did immediately update my OP-1 to the latest firmware before using it. I’m not new to MIDI so I’m finding this issue to be a little strange. I can get USB Audio to work and I can get MIDI information into Ableton but I can’t get MIDI information into my OP-1. Within Ableton all my MIDI INs & OUTs are enabled and I have a MIDI Track open with an Ext. Instrument Rack set up. I’ve tried both putting the OP-1 in CTRL mode and OP-1 mode and nothing seems to fix it. What am I missing?
I should say I’m using a M1 MAX MacBook Pro with a USB to USB-C dongle I got from BestBuy. I don’t know if this is a dongle issue or something else? Same settings work on my older MacBook Pro so I know it wasn’t my configurations. Switching from the old MacBook Pro to the new one without changing the settings in Ableton and it’s working now. I had this issue again last night with the new MacBook Pro where the OP-1 wasn’t receiving MIDI but after trying numerous things it started working. It was only when I tried it again today I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t working. I find it strange still that USB Audio and MIDI IN to a daw worked regardless but OUT was iffy.
Another update: Took a break and it stopped working again. This is probably a useless post but it might be helpful for someone who may have a similar issue.
I guess I’m in the market for new cables. Do you guys have any recommendations for USB-C cables then?
