  • Hey Dominik,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Code 49 will give you access to 4 full octaves at a time that can be shifted with the Key Octave + and - buttons. Did you set up any zones on the Code? Are you only getting one octave with every software you use?

    We can verify how your Code is sending MIDI data to your computer with MIDI monitoring software. A MIDI monitor will show you all the incoming data from any MIDI controllers or MIDI interfaces that you have connected to your computer. In the image below, I've highlighted different octaves of incoming notes from a Code keyboard:

    You can see in the image that I've sent note values from C-2 to C7 to the monitor.

    For testing MIDI devices on Mac:
    Download snoize: MIDI Monitor

    Select the Code as a MIDI input source in the monitor and send some data with its keys in different octaves - do you see different octave values for the notes? For this test it might be a good idea to turn zones off if you've enabled them. This will help us test the basic input of the keyboard.

    Try that and let me know how it works out!
