allan_evett Posted November 17, 2018 Share Posted November 17, 2018 I have a small, teaching studio with a PSR EW-410 as a second keyboard. I've been using the onboard sounds as a teaching supplement, but recently added a used MacBook Pro w/Logic Pro X as an additional tool, for teaching composing and production. It appears that the PSR defaults to MIDI Omni Mode 3 (Omni off, poly on), but I need it to be in Mode 4 (Omni off, mono on); so far I haven't found any documentation for how to change that - in the user manual, MIDI Implementation, or online. So in Logic Pro X, I can control single-sound software instrument tracks, but not multi-timbral tracks (Kontakt, etc.), as all MIDI channels are addressed when attempting to record. There are plenty of Logic tutorials covering MIDI output filtering - using external keyboards, sound modules, tablets/phones, but nothing applicable to the PSR for filtering/redirecting an input channel. One possible solution, using the MBP's Audio/MIDI Setup, doesn't work; when I choose the PSR as a device, the typically present MIDI Out/In channel choices are not presented. The MBP appears to only recognize the PSR as a 'dumb' box that sends/receives in MIDI Omni Mode 3. There is MIDI-USB Driver listed on the PSR EW 410 web page, but it's Windows-only. Thought? Anything obvious I might have missed? Thanks! Quote 'Someday, we'll look back on these days and laugh; likely a maniacal laugh from our padded cells, but a laugh nonetheless' - Mr. Boffo.
