I've just installed an Octamic XTC. It's hooked up to a UFX+ along with a 12mic.
While I'm waiting for another MADI cable, the 12mic is connected to the UFX+ by coaxial cables, and the 12mic and the Octamic XTC are interconnected with MADI cables.
After a good bit of trial and error, I got everything working. The 12mic is passing along the XTC output via MADI 13-20 to the UFX+.
Interesting, up to now I thought the 12Mic's MADI ports can only be used to e.g. integrate MADI into an AVB network.
But this stacking
a) UFX+ -- coax --- 12Mic --- UFX+ and
b) 2Mic to XTC through optical
sounds somehow cool. Wouldn't have thought that this also would work. Yes, maybe by clever routing at the 12Mic ....
So I hope that my tips below also fit for this kind of "unique" temporary setup ;-)
Might require some experimenting ("fiddeling around").
Now I want to use MIDI remote to control the XTC. I can't get it to work, and I'm afraid the Help files aren't much help. I've read the XTC manuals also. I suspect the problem is in my choices of MIDI inputs and outputs, which I don't really understand.
Here's an image of MIDI Remote when I start it:
I'm not asking anyone to walk me through it step by step, I'm just looking for a good tutorial or user guide. I suspect that the problem has to do with the MIDI settings, but the help file under MIDI settings just says "here's where you set the MIDI settings".
Both the UFX+ and the XTC are set to MADI for MIDI inputs/outputs.
Thanks in advance.
Note: Remote Control via Auxdevice and MIDI Remote can not run at the same time, either one or the other !!!
You would get race conditions by this as both remote protocols through MIDI over MADI disturb each other on one MADI bus.
I personally would prefer Auxdevice alone over MIDI Remote, so that you can store and recall settings digitally in TM FX.
For my setup I got MIDI Remote working (without Auxdevice its stable):
UFX+ --- MADI optical ----- XTC ---- MADI optical ---- 12Mic
So .. without any guarantee a few points that might help you, but again, I am not 100% sure whether its valid for your cabling/setup.
1. 12Mic -- VERY IMPORTANT -- DO NOT FORGET
Did you configure MIDI input and MIDI output on the 12Mic ?
I also forgot this when I checked this for you in my setup.
Options -> General Settings -> MIDI Device ID 1
Options -> General Settings -> MIDI Cont Thru: ON
Options -> MIDI Sources -> Control (Inp.) -> MADI In
Options -> MIDI Sources -> USB MIDI 1 -> OFF
Options -> MIDI Sources -> USB MIDI 2 -> OFF
Options -> MIDI Sources -> MIDI DIN OUT -> OFF
Options -> MIDI Sources -> MIDI ov. MADI -> Control
Options -> MIDI Sources -> Status LEDs: “Contr” leuchtet gelb, MADI blinkt gelb
For Remote Control via TM FX (Auxdevice) ...
But then MIDI Remote can not be used at the same time !!!!
TM FX, F3 (Settings)
TAB Aux Devices
Digital Channels: MADI xx-yy
You need to experiment here, because your 12Mic is 1st in order and does not follow the typical MADI 8-port schema
Best would be to choose 1-8 for XTC and 9-20 for 12Mic ...
MIDI In: UFX+ MIDI Port 4 (*)
(*)If I remember right:
- UFX+ MIDI Port 1 / 2 are the physical MIDI ports on the UFX+
- UFX+ MIDI Port 3 is "midi over madi" through optical
- UFX+ MIDI Port 4 is "midi over madi" through coax
You might need to experiment a little bit.
