I successfully downloaded and ran the MicroBrute Connection software, and also successfully updated the MB firmware (or at least I didn't see any indication of FW failure). The software successfully connects to my MB.
To be on the safe side, the first thing I did upon connecting was to save the default sequences, in case I needed them.
However, after connecting to the MB with the Connection software, my sequences are no longer working. If I turn the sequencer off, the notes sound, but with the sequencer set to "Play", no sounds come from the MB, regardless of which sequencer pattern is selected. I tried using the "Reset all sequences" function of the Connection software, to no avail.
Oddly, if I use the "Save sequences" function again, using a different name, the resulting mbseq file and midi files appear to contain the correct sequence data. But nothing happening on the MicroBrute.
Any suggestions for troubleshooting would be very welcome.
