Using Fantom X6 as external MIDI instrument
Thought I'd clarify the issues in a new port.
I have my Roland Fantom X6 set up as an external MIDI instrument for use in Sonar Platinum however:
- Various sources state to turn local control off on the external keyboard however I’m finding that with local control on the X6 turned off, I get no sound during Sonar MIDI playback.
- I have Soft Thru on the Fantom turned off.
- Unless I turn MIDI echo off in Sonar, every time I press a key on the X6 or attempt Sonar MIDI playback, each MIDI note is triggered multiple times, resulting in somewhat of a MIDI note loop which can sometimes cause the X6 to hang/freeze. The only way I’ve found to stop this is turn off ‘Always echo the current MIDI track’ in Sonar but I’m not sure that’s really solving the problem?
- Lastly, do I need a Fantom X Performance INS file for Sonar? Or can I select the Performance manually on the X6?Thanks :)
