Re: Möbius midi and general software question

Hi Kevin,

A wild guess would be that your Mobius plugin gets double MIDI
commands? This can happen is Mobius is listening to the computer's
MIDI In port and you also has set up a MIDI path in Live to pipe (the
same) MIDI stream into the Mobius plugin. One need to make a decision
to either use Live's system or Mobius system and then make sure the
other is not letting through any of the incoming control MIDI events.
My choice is to always use only Mobius system; so I'm setting up
Mobius MIDI Device Selection like "Plugin Input Devices = My Mac's
MIDI Interface's MIDI In port". And then I stay away from enabling a
MIDI path through Live for that particular data. What I like with this
method is that my MIDI gear is talking directly to my looper no matter
which host application the looper happens to be opened in. I like it
consistent, like a music instrument.

One can also leave Mobius with no chosen Plugin Input Device and do
the assigning of incoming MIDI to Mobius parameters and functions in
Live's control assignment system. But in case you change anything
inside Mobius MIDI Bindings window all those host based assignments
will shift around so your switches and pedals will suddenly activate
other functions than you programmed it for.

Third method is to not use Live's MIDI assignment system but just set
up a Live track to pipe incoming MIDI into the Mobius plugin. This is
similar to my method, although my method has Mobius snatch the MIDI
directly from the MIDI port rather then receiving it through a pipe on
some Live track.
