Nord 3P random ghost notes on midi playback

Postby oliverbetts » 27 Sep 2021, 20:54

Hi

Can anyone help?

My Nord Drum 3P plays fine but creates additional random ghost notes on midi playback, I've read a bit that it might be a unit fault but want to check everything before sending it back. Is it a common fault and if the unit is OK, what else could it be? My midi settings are Lo:On, GL10, CH:Of, nt:60, PC:Sr, CC:Sr, SEnd. I'm using a MacBook Pro (15inch 2019), OS 10.14.6, Pro Tools 2019:12.0 through a Focusrite Clarett 8PreX Any help would be great.

Hi, are you playing back a recorded track? Can you check in the MIDI string being sent out (using a MIDI monitor program) whether those notes are actually nonexistent in the MIDI track?

Hi oliverbetts, welcome to the forum!

Interesting..
I agree with Mr G to check what MIDI messages are coming from the MIDI interface. Perhaps some MIDI effect is applied in the DAW, perhaps your MIDI interface or cabling is the culprit. What MIDI interface are you using?

Do these 'ghost' notes occur completely randomly, or is there a pattern in these notes?
Perhaps try to switch Local off (Lo:Of), to prevent any 'spontaneous' triggering from the pads, which can occur when pad threshold settings are too low / sensitivity settings are too high..

If the 3p's MIDI Out is connected to the MIDI interface, check if the problem still occurs when you disconnect that cable.

Does it occur with one drum channel on the 3p or with more?

Cheers,
Albert
