MIDI Question with NE5D

Postby Nymitch1 » 07 Jan 2017, 18:21

Greetings from snowy New York! I had a question concerning playing the Nord through another keyboard via MIDI.
The piano sounds worked out well, but the organ (especially with rotary on) had a weird sound. It almost sounded liked a warped chorus. When I played the keys on the Nord the organ sounded fine, when I moved over to the Yamaha Montage, I heard the distorted tone. I didn't have chorus or any effects on, with the exception of the rotary. Any thoughts?

Make sure you are playing Nord on the Global channel and then it will always sound just like the actual keyboard. I think there are different channels normally configured for different instruments. Have a look through you NE5D manual about properly setting the midi channels.
Keyboards:
  • NS2 EX Compact 73
  • Hammond SK2
  • Roland VCombo VR-09
  • Alesis VI61

Is there anything else involved in your midi rig? Running through a computer perhaps? Software? The symptoms you describe sound like what happens when the midi signal is doubled, causing a chorus effect.

Thanks for the responses.. I'm playing on the Nord's Global Channel.
@Pablo... I'm not connecting to a computer, just running a single Midi cable from the Yamaha to the Nord. I noticed that the problem went away when I turned the B3+bass off. I'm not sure if this was the culprit,but seems ok now. Again, thanks for all your help. This forum rocks!
