I recently added my OP-1 into the midi chain for the rig I’ve been using lately and everything is working pretty well except for one thing… when I hit STOP on my master device (OP-Z), sometimes the OP-1 doesn’t respond properly and everything after it in the MIDI chain keeps playing as if a stop message was never received. So usually I ended up having to jam on the stop button repeatedly until it works. During my composing process, I’m frequently starting and stopping the sequencers so this is getting frustrating quickly.
To get MIDI IN/OUT for the OP-1, I use this little device.
My chain goes OP-Z → OP-1 → Roland TR-8S → Intellijel 7U case 1 (uMidi 1U) → Intellijel 7U case 2 (Midi 1U).
I’m not really planning to use the OP-1 tape at all and I noticed that it plays when a start signal is received so I set the loop points to an empty section of the tape. Maybe the tape is causing this somehow?
Has anyone experienced this? Any solutions? Thanks for the help!
