Roland JV-1080 MIDI set up

Post by kb9kpm » Thu Nov 19, 2015 12:27 am

Hey guys, I am starting to learn MIDI and need some help. My main board is a Yamaha MOX8 it has several modes of operation including "Master Mode" in master mode, it will send/receive MIDI control messages and controls how the MOX8 responds to MIDI. My goal is to set up my MOX8 to send program change messages to my Roland JV-1080 synth module on one MIDI channel, and have the JV1080 respond to key on/off commands from another MIDI keyboard controller on another channel. Looking through the manuals it sure looks like this is possible, but I haven't been able to make it work. Putting it another way, can I daisy chain my keyboard controller, MOX8, and JV1080 in a way that when I change songs on my MOX8, it tells the JV1080 what patch to play, and then play that patch through my keyboard controller? This way I could, lets say, have a piano on the MOX8 and a synth pad on the keyboard controller, switch songs on the MOX8 and have a different set of patches to play for the next song. Any help would be great!

I asked a Danish forum and they suggested a midi merger
Thomann sells a Midi Solution Merger for 76 €.

It has 2 input and one output

Hope that helps
