Hi everyone,

First, thanks to all the great people on this forum, you guys, rock. I learned so much about the Andromeda.

I will try to describe the problem and to be as precise as possible.
Here we go:


In the Global menu, "VSENS" is set to 50.
If I play some tune directly on the Andromeda keyboard, the velocity is ignored, no matter the setting. Setting "TXMODE" to "PLASTIC" or "WEIGHT" won't help. It will always respond like it is set to "MAX"...EXCEPT for one key: C5. Strange...

Now if I set "TXMODE" to "MAX", it will respond normally (max velocity all over the keyboard), and even C5 won't respond to velocity, which is normal.

But if I record the synth with an external sequencer, the sequencer will receive the velocity data correctly.
Also, when I transmit an external sequence to the Andromeda, it will play the different notes, with their velocities Exclamation

I then tried all the soft buttons to reset the synth / user bank. I even refreshed the O.S (v1.40.12 and even tried beta v1.40.13)....to no avail... the velocity still doesn't work Sad

The only thing I didn't try is to send a new bootloader because the version I found (v1.20.31) is older than mine (v1.20.37) and I'm quite concerned that this could damage the Andromeda for good.

I also opened the synth and "reseated" the ribbon cables coming out of the keyboard, but no luck. I bought this second hand Andromeda quite recently and the seller assured me that it was working like a charm.

Running out of ideas...Any suggestion? Confused

______________________________________


*EDIT* Just ran another test. Here's the setup:

1. Andromeda is set to "Plastic" and "MIDI" in the Global menu (won't respond when you play the keyboard, while sending MIDI data via its MIDI OUT)

2. Cubase is set to receive MIDI notes AND velocity (I checked that) from the Andromeda on MIDI Ch. 1

3. Cubase is also set to mirror MIDI incoming data via its MIDI OUT, back to the Andromeda MIDI IN, channel 1

Guess what? Notes are played... but NO velocity! Shocked

Ghost in the machine?
