Help using miditzer with a technics sx ex30l

Post by Nostrovia » Wed May 03, 2023 5:23 pm

Hi guys
I've got a bit of a strange problem I'm hoping someone can advise
I was preciously using miditzer 216 with my windows 10 pc and my yamaha electone el40 with no problem whatsoever using the standard USB to midi in/out leads.it was literally as easy as plug and play.i now no longer have the electone and recently purchased a technics sx ex30l and connected up in the usual way however the upper and lower manuals operate the swell and solo on miditzer as did the yamaha previously but I'm getting no action at all on miditzer when I operate the swell pedal on the technics and I've looked around at the miditzer settings but can't seem to be able to get my swell pedal to work in miditzer.
I'm hoping someone can advise me.thanks in advance

I also have a Technics organ. I am not near it at this time, so I am not sure of the model. The Technics swell pedal, at least on my model, does not produce MIDI messages. It just controls the volume of the amplifier.

If your model is like mine, it also has the quirk of sending a MIDI All Notes Off message when the last note on a manual is released. Unfortunately, that will stop everything on the Miditzer, which is not what you want if you are playing on another manual. Clear the "Enable Panic" check box in the Miditzer Settings Piston dialog to avoid having All Notes Off messages shut down the Midtzer.
