Well, I’ll be danged. Was programming a new song tonight and noticed some weird behavior with my D-50 and Arturia Piano. It was chopping off the release portion of notes. Long story short- it seems the D-50 sends an all notes off message whenever the last key is released and it creates havoc with some plug-ins. I’ve used the thing for years as a controller and never realized this until tonight. I was having odd behavior with M-Tron Pro as well and never put two and two together. Now that I know the issue I can filter it in Cantabile but- what a PITA!! Are there other keyboards that do this? According to my web-fu this cannot be disabled in the keyboard. Does anyone know differently?? Thanks!
(BTW I figured out what was going on with Cantabile’s MIDI monitor function. Very cool.)
Never seen that before on any of my keyboards. Quite unusual. Is there a global/utility setting in the D50 that lets you turn it off?
If not, then Cantabile filtering comes out the rescue!
I remember having that exact same problem with my D-50, years ago, and back then I had to solve it with a MIDI Solutions hardware filter box. Life is all so much easier these days with Cantabile
Ahh. the old Roland All Note Off issue.
That generation of Rolands had a protocol where. when all note ons were released, the synth would issue an All Note Off command. Caused havoc for many - especially if using the D50 as a master keyboard!
Setting up a filter on that keyboard’s midi output to zap CC123 was the order of the day… and still is!
The crazy thing is, I’ve been using a D-50 as a controller since at least the mid 2000s and never noticed. It just happens that for most of that time I’ve used it for controlling organ modules Or apparently things that didn’t respond to cc 123.
Many of the old Rolands do this. I’ve had CC123 filtered out on the input to my DAW for a couple of decades!
