Code 61 MIDI Out

I'm learning to use my Code 61 with Propellerhead Reason. It works great as a MIDI controller for the DAW. I have a Yamaha DD-55 drum pad/synth that I want to control with Reason. I can connect the Code 61 MIDI Out jack to the DD-55 MIDI In jack and play the DD-55 with the Code 61 keys & pads. This proves that the Code 61 MIDI Out jack is working, the DD-55 is working, and the MIDI cable is good.

When I try to send MIDI notes from Reason through the Code 61 (my only MIDI interface) to the DD-55, it doesn't work. Reason sees four MIDI output interfaces (Code 61 / MIDIOUT2 / MIDIOUT3 / MIDIOUT4). I have tried all four with no success.

Can you explain how to properly send MIDI data from Reason through the Code 61 (via USB) to the DD-55 (or other instrument) on the MIDI Out jack?

Thank you in advance for support,
Matt

  • Hi Matt,

    Thanks for posting!

    The MIDI output port can only be used to send MIDI directly from the Code keyboard. It cannot be used to send MIDI data from your DAW or from the MIDI input port.

    I am happy to submit a feature request for you here though!

  • Thanks for the quick response, Corey. I figured that might be the case after I tried the same setup but used a borrowed USB MIDI interface, and it worked right away.

    If that feature can be added via firmware update, that would be awesome.

  • Yes, having similar issues here. My old Axiom 49 could do this.

    I can't get Protools to send my patch changes out through the Code 61 to an external JV1080. The keyboard works if I send a patch change using the shift and up down buttons to the JV1080 and also shows the patch change reflected in Protools. However, if I want to just click a patch change inside Protools, it doesn't communicate through the 61 to make the change to the JV1080. I have several midi fx units as well and it doesn't look like the 61 can pass through the data coming back from these to Protools or once again to change fx patches coming from Protools. If you can create a pass through function, that would be great.
