Sp 12 turbo / Emu II /


« on: October 17, 2015, 10:44:54 AM »

hy !

My sp12 drum file is soon obsolete  Cry

So the new emxp soft has landed. So great !

But it is very difficult to configure well the midi communication. I can load sequences.
But i can't load a huge bank from and to the sp 12.

I have tried a lot of parameters. I use an UM-1 midi usb transfer with a Virtual machine windows 7 on mac osx.

Thank you E synthesis.   Wink

When I released the new EMXP version with SP-12 support, I was hoping that the "SP12 MIDI communications engine" in EMXP would be flexible enough for all MIDI interfaces. But it seems it doesn't...
I think I know the reason why you have problems, especially since you mention that loading sequences works fine but transferring huge banks doesn't work fine. The challenge is how I will be able to solve it.

Can you confirm that transferring small banks is working fine ? E.g. a bank consisting of only one sample of 100 msec ?
Did the "load sequences" work with the initial (factory) SP 12 MIDI preferences in EMXP v3.02, or did you have to change the parameters for that purpose as well ?
If the transfer is not working, does that mean an error is displayed in EMXP (and/or on the SP-12) ? If an error is shown in EMXP, what error code does it have (e.g. 1046) ?

EMXP contains some special (rather exotic) MIDI logic which is specifically dedicated to transferring large banks/samples, but I guess this exotic logic should have been even more exotic ;-) I had to build this logic because of some inconveniences in the MIDI protocol of the SP-12.
It worked fine on my Windows laptops and my 4 different MIDI interfaces, but based on your experience it seems not to be OK for all possible setups (other MIDI interfaces, running EMXP in a virtual machine on Mac OSX, ...)
If you send me an email (to my esynthesist at yahoo dot com account), I would like to send you an EMXP version which contains communication debugging logic. The log report from that EMXP version could help me in investigating the problem.

Okai,

as soon as possible, after rugby maybe  Grin

I'll test the small bank and the initial factory preferences with reset.

thanks for your engineering !!

Thanks !

If other SP-12 users have problems as well, please contact me via e-mail.
And if there are SP-12 users who succeeded in loading/saving data without any problems, please let me know as well, because I want to know how big this MIDI issue is.

For me it turned out that you first have to set the midi in/out in the preferences and then before the transfer again. once that is done it did not have to touch it anymore. I use an RME Multiface II.

I just tried the 3.0.6 version of EMXP and miditransfer also worked for me! But sample midi transfer does not work on my old OS7 Mac running SPLibrarian. Still a mystery why it is so..
