Mystery MIDI binding issue!
This is my first post! Looking desperately for some help. I don't seem to find a similar issue in the forum. Here goes:
I am trying to use Loopy HD on the latest iPad Air (IOS 7.1.2) with the Softstep 2 foot controller. I have tried connecting directly to the iPad using the USB lightning cable, and also by connecting a Fireface UCX interface directly to the iPad and connecting the Softstep with its MIDI expander. The issue in both scenarios is this:
Although Loopy DOES see MIDI coming from the Softstep (Programmed to output MIDI notes) in the bindings window and the Softstep port is selected (there is a tick in the control inputs section), any assigned and saved bindings simply do not activate the necessary functions in Loopy!!.
This seems extremely odd as the MIDI notes are getting to Loopy (also MIDI Monitor) as stated above and they are saved and listed in the bindings window. However, the assigned bindings do nothing in Loopy!
I have tried pretty much all I can think of: Rebooting the iPad, re-installing Loopy, making connections in different orders, etc etc. Strangely, I did have it working briefly at one point a while ago!
This has been very very frustrating to say the least. Can anyone help? I can't believe I am the only one having this issue.
I contacted Michael by email about this issue and he was very helpful but even he is at a loss as to the solution of this mystery issue.
I welcome any assistance/clues/tips on this matter as I love Loopy HD!!!
Thanks in advance for any help.
