Hi people In single mode, I can send Arp notes to the Virus Midi Out, no problem at all.
But not in Sequencer Mode.
I'm using VC in Cubase, I can use Arp in Virus tracks (internally), but I find NO WAY to send it out to midi port on viruses back, and yes, I already set Arp Note Send to ON.
Manual says nothing about this.
Can this be done or not by design?
Thanks in advance
When the USB is plugged in, the MIDI in and out at the back do not belong to the Virus anymore. They are an output of your computer as if the Virus is a soundcard. Instead, the Virus communicates MIDI to and from the computer using the "Virus Synth" MIDI ports. If you want the MIDI out port at the back to output something, you need to create a send to it in your DAW. For example, Take a channel that is fed by the Virus Synth in and send it to the Virus MIDI out.
Hope this helps.
Thanks a lot, flabberbob! Yes, you are right, I tryed this some minutes ago while messing around with the arp & ports. If I create a new midi track and put TI Synth as in and Virus midi out as out, It does send midi data from the physical port on the back. As you say it behaves exactly as another midi device (as for example my motu micro lite multiport does).
So this suggest that it's not possible, not in this way.
But what about the Arp Out? Is there a way to use it anywhere else than inside VC?
What happens when you set arp output on? Does the DAW record the resulting arp or the original notes you play? (I never tried this since I either play arps by hand or use an arp plugin - every modern DAW comes equipped with one).
Yes, me too I'm using a software arp now (BlueArp), anyway the Virus should be able to send out notes. In my situation it works while in standolone midi mode (both single and multi mode) but not while in sequencer mode (running VC).
