On gearslutz, I see this:
I contacted Waldorf and asked if this was true, and they said this:This isn't really a bug was a design choice made by Waldorf to save money I guess. The encoders to not transmit midi CC via the Midi Out. For the desktop unit which doesn't have a midi out this isn't an issue. I have a keyboard and a desktop unit though and I am completely OTB with no computer. The only way to make this work is either A. Use another control surface programmed to the blofelds midi spec. or B. I bought an IConnect midi and run my blofeld keys to the Iconnect using USB then midi I/O from the IConnect to my midi patch bay. This works fine though sometimes I have to turn the Iconnect on and off to get it to recognise the blofeld after long periods of nothing. (Overall impact to me: MEDIUM).
But I'm not sure if he realized I meant MIDI out. He may be talking about USB. But all of my external gear goes into my MIDI patchbay. So USB isn't really what I want.where did you heard such stories ??
Blofelds encoder send Midi CC since years until today. Only, it isn’t a usual Midi Controller or Master Keyboards, therefore it hasn’t so much functions like one of the kind.
I ordered one already, but can still cancel to avoid the hassle of a return.
