Hi Gabriel, Hi Dave,
thanks for your replies and your help.

To cut it short, it is the USB to MIDI Cable.

With other Devices in my mate's studio (Keyboards, Drum Machines etc.) there are no problems. But sometimes I take the Monotribe home to work out some new stuff and I'm doing it here with my Notebook and Ableton Live. That's the reason why I got this USB to MIDI Cable.

As Gabriel mentioned, I will try an active USB Hub and get back here as soon I have tested it.

Until then, big thanks again to you guys and keep rocking the MIDITRIBE.

oops

Ralf.

Hi there Ralf!

I would be interested to see if the USB-Midi lead works with a powered hub... I could actually use mine again smile

Although, I bought it to use with my laptop and avoid hubs, but it would be good to at least get it working!

Hi there,

now I have tested an active USB Hub with the USB to MIDI Cable and still no luck.

So it seems that USB to MIDI Cables are not compatible with MIDITRIBE.

@Gabriel: Do you have a good cheap tip, how I can use the MIDITRIBE with my Notebook's USB Ports? I know that my mate's using an Alesis Sound-Station, but I don't want to put that much effort because I only want the MIDITRIBE to synchronise with Ableton Live on my Notebook.

Cheers,
Ralf

Hi Ralf,

We can only think of the M-Audio MIDISPORT 2x2 as a cheap but yet reliable USB to MIDI interface, these are small, built like a tank and deliver quality MIDI. Any interface should work, we are preparing a list of the devices we used to test the MIDITRIBE and will post back here soon. Your case and Dave's case seems to be insulated cases, we already sold dozens of MIDITRIBEs and never had a single MIDITRIBE returned, also no one has ever claimed it to be not working with any specific device before. Anyways, USB to MIDI cables never were a reliable MIDI source, that's why they are so cheap. We advise you to go to a store with your Laptop and the MONOTRIBE, then test it before you purchase the interface, maybe your Laptop's USB port is to blame.

I'm here to help, please ask as many questions as you need to.

Best wishes,
Gabriel Rodrigues,
Amazing Machines

Hi guys!

Not sure how much help this is going to be but...

I have one of those standard USB-Midi cables and it wont work with my MidiTribe. I also had troubles before using it with my FS1R and Shruthi - so I would blame that cable. I have no trouble with the MidiTribe and the Midi out of my Ultralite using Ableton Live 8. That works wonderfully, Thank You very much Gabriel!

Hope this is some help!


Hi Dave,

Can you confirm how do you connect your Ultralite:

- Firewire?
- USB?
- Do you use a external power adapter?
- Is this the same Laptop you tried the USB to MIDI cable?

Thanks in advance,
Gabriel Rodrigues,

Hi Gabriel!

I have a late 2008 MacBook. I use an Ultralite Mk.I that is powered directly from the laptop FW port. Everything is running perfect wth the MidiTribe - it just works!

The USB ports on the Macbook both output the usual 5v so Im not sure why my USB-Midi only works when it feels like it!

Hope this helps!
Dave

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your feedback. Can you please try to connect your Ultralite via the USB Port and test it with the MIDITRIBE?
It would help us to provide valuable information about compatibility issues.
Please let me know the Brand and Model of your USB to MIDI cable.

Thanks in advance,
Gabriel Rodrigues,

Hi Gabriel!

Im very sorry mate - I wont be much help here... My Ultralite is the Mk.I so it is only Firewire Im afraid. It is the older one and does not have USB. Also, the USB-Midi is one of those REALLY cheap unbranded ones floating about.

Here is a picture of the exact model:



Sorry I couldnt be any more help but if it makes any difference, I am a VERY happy MidiTribe customer smile

thumbs up

Dave

Hi Dave,

Great to hear that you are happy with your MIDITRIBE thumbs up
Sorry, but hmmm........ I must be honest with you, these USB to MIDI cables can't be taken seriously seriously, i just don't get it, as you are an owner of a MacBook and an Ultralite, I believe you know why. I mean, have a look to your MacBook and Ultralite, despite the good looking factor, there's a lot of effort and development put into those things, also they are made with high quality parts and follows the standards, in fact they are the standards, you can't say the same about these USB to MIDI cables.
We are very happy with your feedback and comments, now we can add the MOTU Utralite MkI to the tested and approved list.

Many Thanks,
Gabriel Rodrigues,

Yippiiiieeeehhh!!!! hihi

I finally got my MIDITRIBE sychronised with my Notebook.

Gabriel, you can put the miditech MIDIFACE 2x2 on your compatibility list:

http://www.miditech.de/site.php4?site_id=144

Works perfectly with Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate. Just plug and play, no special driver or software installation needed. In Ableton Live, it's called "Midilink" and "MIDIOUT2 (Midilink)".

Everything works, synchronisation and programming.

Now, i will play around a little bit. cool

If I'll have any questions concerning the programming of MIDITRIBE in Ableton Live, can I ask this forum here too?

Til then,
Ralf

Hi Ralf,

Great to hear you got everything sorted, this makes the miditech MIDIFACE 2x2 another one to our list.

We advise you to download the latest version of the MIDITRIBE Owner's Manual, there are some new features added after the MONOTRIBE OS 2 Update.

Feel free to ask as many questions as you need to, this is the main reason we created this forum.

Cheers,

Hi mates!

I installed the MIDITRIBE interface on my Monotribe, it rules! Really professional; well packed, looks very nice, well done Amazing Machines!!

I have just one question, but not easy to formulate; actually I have a AKAI XR20, a nice little beatbox which has a MIDI connection, so the best solution for me to synchronize the Monotribe is rather via the XR20 than KP3 (in terms of ergonomy) but here's my little problem;

When I plug the Miditribe to the XR20, the tempo is doubled: to obtain 120Bpm I have to enter 60Bpm, for 160; 80, etc.
which is a problem because if I want to use the note repeat I have to double also the value (and it's not infinite of course!).

So what can I do even on the Monotribe or the XR20 to synchronize the two machines on the same BPM value?

Here we are. Sorry if the question's stupid but I don't really know anything usefull about MIDI smile
(I already searched into the XR20 MIDI option)

Thanks again for the Miditribe solution,
Big up!!

Best regards from France.

Hi Psilocynik,

This is not the first time I've seen it, usually with KORG instruments. We have the same problem with our microKORG mk1 when trying to sync it to ableton, depending on how ableton is setted, if we send MIDI Clock to 1 port it works fine, if we set ableton to send MIDI clock to 2 diferent ports all of our KORG synths including a Poly-800II go crazy and double the clock. I'm not sure why it happens but looks like it is related to how KORG synths interpret MIDI Timecode. Same thing happend with the MONOTRIBE when trying to send MIDI Clock to 2 diferent ports in Logic Pro. In your case the XR20 only have 1 port so you can't try to turn off MIDI Clock to other ports. The only sugestion I may come up with is to try diferent senttings for MIDI Clock Out on the XR20, which you said you already did. The MONOTRIBE have no settings for this kind of messages, our interface adds no code or something that can be configured further, the MIDITRIBE is only a converter to adequate the standard MIDI signal to what the MONOTRIBE can read, what ever happens after the conversion is up to KORG and what they implemented on the machine, but as I mentioned before, all of our MIDI equipped KORGs have the same problem depending on specific configurations. Certainly this is not the answer you was looking for but it is what it is right?
Fear not to ask as many questions as you need to, this is the main reason we created this forum, so we could answer our customers questions. Please post back here if you find a solution for your specific case.

Gabriel Rodrigues,

I just came across this great MIDITRIBE I/O video review from SonicState and thought I'd post it here.




In the video it is mentioned that you plan to make the MIDITRIBE I/O available through stores. Do you have any more info on that already?

Hi Flx,

Yes, we are working on it, Rubadub is already our official dealer in the EU, they are selling the MIDITRIBE I/O on their physical store at Glasgow UK, also on eBay and through their website here:

http://www.rubadub.co.uk/

Thanks for posting the Sonic State review, we should have done that but, as you can figure, time has been very tight, the MIDITRIBE I/O is selling very well applause
We couldn't even update our eBay listing yet, can you imagine that?

Cheers,
Gabriel Rodrigues,
