new mioXM bad DIN signals
iConnect and Perfectcircuit indicated mioXM should work though I have problems with iConnectMIDI ICM-0101,
I bought a new mioXM from Perfectcircuit which arrived yesterday. I installed
unified USB driver 5.50 from iConnect website, downloaded and installed Auracle
and installed its driver, rebooted Win11 desktop.
mioM lights as expected and when Yamahea PSR- E422 is connected via usb or Yamaha PSR-510 DIN are connected, appropriate lights light. When mioXM is plugged into Windows, the connecting-device charm from the desktop sounds.
However, Auracle does not detect the mioXM. Using the front panel DINs, if Yamaha PSR-510 out is plugged in mioXM DIN with Yamaha-E422 plugged in USB in the rear mioXM, playing notes on 510 should play E422 but there is no response. Keeping this setup, if front mioXM DIN out goes to DIN in on Doepfer A-190-2 there is no response; plugged into Mutable Instruments Yarns has no response [direct input of 510 out to the last 2 ins works fine so there is not proper mioXM passthrough]; BUT plugged into Focusrite 18i8, that detects and transmits a signal, so there is a defective signal which sometimes works. This is similar to but even worse than the behavior of ICM-0101 I bought this to replace. I stress that passthrough fails using nothing but the midi instruments and mioXM, without computer or Focusrite connection.
While it appears the device doesn't work properly, it works somewhat so presumably works as designed, I think this is how they build rather than a flaw in this particular unit. It appears I'll need to return mioXM, but - let me know if there's anything else I should do/try. I started a ticket on iConnect but it is weekend, will wait to hear from them, and also try to phone Perfectcircui before starting any return.
I looked at Perfectcircuit's other midi interfaces but see none that accept both DIN and USB midi, let me know of anything to try with mioXM other alternatives to iConnect?
