"Why Aftertouch fails in Local OFF?"

“In the context of a musical instrument or MIDI controller, when the Local mode is set to ‘OFF,’ it has been observed that the Aftertouch functionality ceases to work. Can you provide insights into why this might be happening and offer potential solutions or troubleshooting steps to address the issue? Additionally, explain the relationship between the Local mode setting and Aftertouch functionality, and how users can ensure proper functioning of Aftertouch even when Local mode is turned off.”

Hi @WartanThamar and welcome to our Sound Explorers community!

That’s very strange behaviour indeed!

But I don’t see anything else in the manual saying that the USB does or does not output note messages when Local Control is off. But check what’s coming out the 5-Pin - that way you know for sure that Local Off is behaving as it should out of that port at least. And if it does, you might be able to use that hack I mention above (as long as it doesn’t create any MIDI feedback loops).
