i am currently writing code for an external MIDI sequencer experiment, using Yarns as a MIDI to CV/gate converter. The plan is to run Yarns in 4M mode, having four separate monophonic CV/gate voices without any voice allocation.
I know my sequencer works with other hardware, but with Yarns i can only make it work by having Yarns responding to a regular MIDI keyboard’s MIDI messages first, and then switching to my sequencer. From there Yarns accepts MIDI messages from my sequencer.
I’m trying to figure out why. Does the MIDI keyboard send some sort of initialization message that my sequencer code is lacking? (My code is currently sending start/stop/continue/clock/note on and note off messages). Any other ideas?
