Jupiter-8V Technical Issues / New user disappointed with presets
« Last post by SoundHound on July 29, 2015, 11:55:51 pm »
Has a new user I must say I am disappointed with presets. Every other preset seems to be some type of sound effect and most of the patches seem to be drenched in reverb and delay and unusable. I feel I wasted my money. I downloaded the latest version too. I'm on windows7. I am super glad I only bought one instrument!

Between the Apple Camera Connection Kit and the USB cable place an unpowered USB travel hub. One that has no power adapter option. I use one that can be found on Amazon for cheap and has worked well for a couple years now. Search for "HDE Compact Travel 4 Port High Speed USB 2.0 Pocket Hub".

Basically it's necessary to use an unpowered USB hub so dumb that it will not be able to report power requirement stats to the USB host/iPad/iPhone.

Hey thanks Goa - actually I have a MOTU card here that I can connect up, but just for general info for anyone else who finds this thread, I didn't even need to hook my MOTU up. All I had to do was download and install ASIO4ALL and set my audio device to that driver. BINGO!

Has anybody else noticed that when you record in to the BSP from a midi keyboard
that when you touch the knobs they don't display the correct note value

unlike when you record from the BSP pads

my knobs all display c03

sorry, thought you meant you had issues with the default randomness and swing settings. misunderstanding on my part.

will try that test later tonight and let you know

I think you need a CV Converter/Polarizer/Attenuator Module or a Kenton Midi to CV Converter or something else because the arp 2600 needs a higher gate/ trigger voltage. You  should find the information in the original manual which you can find here:


General Discussion on Beatstep Pro / Just 2 quick questions RE BSP
« Last post by MirEko on July 29, 2015, 08:06:55 pm »
Thinking of getting 2 of these but a few questions..

Can it record a midi sequence played into it? That would be very helpful if so.

Can I transpose the sequencers with a midi keyboard (eg both beatsteps at the same time).

I'm glad to see it's not just mine. I have spent too much time trying different settings to get this to work properly with Ableton. I will stick to my original BS and will be returning the BSP. I guess I will try one again in a few months. Hopefully they can get everything straightened out because it can really be a great step sequencer.
I know Ableton is somewhat special when it goes to MIDI. But this time it's the combination of Beatstep Pro and Ableton Live 9 which results in a complete mess.

I have Live configured to send MIDI sync (MIDI Clock, MMC not possible in Live) to BSP via USB and BSP in ext. sync via USB. Unfortunately BSP echoes the incoming timing clock events (status 248) to it's USB port. Live will continue to echo the returned events to any other gear, resulting in twice as many timing clock events than expected.

I'd like to switch echoing MIDI Clock on the port that receives it off, but still send it to the others.

The second problem is. I have configured BSP to play (CC#1) and stop (CC#2) Live with it's transport buttons. When i start playback in Live it will send a MC-Start (250). BSP responds to this with the simulated button press of first stop, then play (in sum four CC-events with CC#1 with values 127 and 0, then CC#2 with values 127 and 0). This causes Live to stop and send a MC-Stop (252) resulting in simulated button presses of first play then stop. This is a pretty feedback loop which causes complete chaos.

With my two beatsteps (non-pro) this work's. I have configured the play and stop button to send a CC#1 (value 127) and CC#2 (value 127) to start and stop playback in Live. They don't return anything sync related to Live.
