Dual KB STRANGE issue: sustained notes - NS3 and Akai MPC249

Postby yohayblo » 09 Nov 2018, 20:41

Hi dear friends,

I have a VERY strange issue. I use Dual KB a lot, and it's great. Until now, I worked with Korg Mikrokontrol (midi out to my NS3), no problems.
Now, I am connecting Akai MPK249 midi Out to NS3 Midi in, and when I hit a note, any note, it is sustained forever. It's like there is no "note off" message. When I am connecting my other kids controller, everything is fine, but with this Akai unit - the notes keep playing all the time, until I press Panic on the Nord.

The strangest thing is that when I connect this Akai to my RME midi interface, to Ableton, with the same MIDI cable (not USB!), the same keyboard plays very wall, no issues, no sustained notes.

So I think that the problem is that the Nord reads something particular from this Akai keyboard controller, or does not read its "note off" commands. I don't know.

Anyone have encountered this? Any ideas?

If I am not clear with my explanation of the problem please tell me, and I will elaborate and will try to be more clear.

Thank you!
Yohay

It is a bug of OS 1.52 nord-stage-forum-f3/os1-52-and-dualkb-problems-t16441.html

Go back to a previous version or wait for the next releas with the fix.

Indeed, that seems exactly the same like my problem.
I will wait for the fix, but in order to work in the meantime I would like to downgrade to 1.46, but I cannot find 1.46 download link on their site.

Does anyone have or can drop a link to 1.46 for Mac?

Thanks :)

Try to do a search here on the forum for the 1.46. Sometimes, the old releases are still on Nords site -- you just need to change the version number in the filename. Sometimes they are not, but another fellow forum member saved some of them and posted links here, if I remember right.

Indeed, that was the case. I downgraded to 1.46, and the problem is solved.
So, waiting for Nord to fix this bug in their next version.

[feeling grateful]

I have the same problem. Brand new NSC3 keyboard, upgraded to 1.5.2 and I’m getting distortion and a long sustain on the Dual KB using a StudioLogic SL73 controller. Very frustrating. I spent the first 3 days with my new keyboard thinking I had screwed something up and diagnosing a known problem. Would have rather been playing.
