Feedback on Live Rig Wiring/Routing

Post by slicetwo » Wed Feb 12, 2020 11:21 am

Putting together my live rig for (hopefully) a good long while and I think I’ve got it all mainly sorted out, though I’m looking for feedback on whether a USB hub or MIDI Merger would be more useful in the long run. I’m leaning towards USB hub, but I’m not really sure.

Also need to avoid MIDI Loop issues, which I think can be avoided if OT is set to have transport and clock receive OFF.

EDIT: So it turns out the Keystep I/O can act as MIDI Thru. I wonder if I'll end up with weird loopback if I have it wired like OT -> DN -> iPad -> Keystep -> back to OT

Then the Keystep could control the DN and iPad when on the right channels, and the iPad can control the DN thru the OT via the right channels. Wouldn't I then get doubled notes though since it's basically a giant loop?

Here’s a diagram:
