Has anyone else noticed that the OP-Z is sending out a MidiCC# value for Master Volume when using it to sequence synths on iPad OS.
I’m using the Zed a lot with KORG Gadget and every time I record a sequence on the OP-Z and it plays my synths in Gadget, it sends over a command to reduce the volume to almost zero.
I’ve performed a Factory reset on the Z, but it’s still doing this weird thing…also, I deactivated Enable Program Change in the OP-Z Midi settings view.
Thanks in advance if anyone knows what’s going on.
Running latest OS on OP-Z as well.
u need to find what CC is the master volume on gadget
and then match it up to the table on this for your Z
u may be able to use the “parameter_cc_out” in the midi.json file on your Z to set your CCs to something that doesn’t trigger anything on the gadget or maybe even disable them entirely
Thanks for the info. I just don’t understand why the OP-Z is sending over these commands of CC#4 and CC#7 when I am not programming it to send these over. It’s weird that it would send these over without my input.
Also, I’m not setting any Midi Learn in Gadget for these CC#'s to be an influence on the channel. I experience the same Master Volume bug in Korg Electribe Wave as well.
When i place a midi monitor on the incoming info from the OP-Z, i see that it is sending over a bunch of Control Change Commands without my input:
I assume that these are Midi CC#1-16 being fired based on the attached screenshot.
seems like gadget may have some CCs setup as default
this chart i found would indeed seem to suggest that CC#7 is indeed tied to master volume on most of hte gadgets
on the Z CC#4 is filter resonance and CC#7 is envelope sustain
Yep. But why is the OP-Z sending these commands when i am not initiating them? Shouldn’t the OP-Z only send cc#s if i instruct it? Seems like this spewing of CC#s was introduced in the latest firmware as i did not encounter this issue with Gadget prior to the update.
Thanks for the info on this thread you two. ™
I had a similar issue when using the oplab together with a korg monologue. Something always made the monologue change settings in the middle of a sequence. And I did not find a way to get rid of that behaviour and I do not understand, why the op-z is sending the information, no matter what the settings are.
BTW, in my case that was faaaarrrr before the latest FW update.
Hrmm…just seems odd that the OP-Z would be firing off these random CC# values without user input. I wonder if we have to create INIT Patch on the synth parts to make sure no CC# automation is sneaking thru the midi out events…
So far what I’m doing in Gadget is setting CC#1-16 to off, and I’ve deactivated Send MidiClock from the OP-Z and it seems to work…will have to test more though to be sure
Hello from the future!
Did you manage to resolve this issue? I’m having the same problem with the Z sending cc messages to turn the volume down when j change the program / sequences and it’s driving me crazy
Is it possible you have MIDI enabled on those tracks and it’s sending a CC value out when it loads a new preset after switching sequences? I know it sends CC values for anything that’s parameter locked.
If that’s your issue you might want to consider changing the CC outs on the OP-Z to be CC 0, which disables CC out entirely.
Thank you! This is what I actually ended up doing and it resolved the problem
This fixed my issue for hooking the op-z up with an mc101 as a sound module.
