I'm posting this in hope someone could help us with a quite annoying problem I'll try to explain (Please forgive my sometimes approximative english)
In our band we're using a midi sequencer (in this case from a Korg Kronos) to send program change messages to automate the tone change for the keyboard as well as the guitarist.
It's set up like this:
Korg Kronos midi out -> Roland RD-700NX midi in, Roland RD-700NX midi thru -> Pod HD500 midi in
On the Kronos sequencer,
Obivously, the Pod HD500 midi channel setting is set on 14, and the synth one on 15.
I works flawlessy...expect that
for some unknown reasons the pod HD seems to ignore program changes on a totally random pattern (we can play the same song 3 times, 2 will be fine, the 3rd it will miss 1 or 2 PC out of 10), and we really don't know why or what could be the cause of the problem (the roland has never missed a single one in a year).
Things we tried/checked:
I've been dealing with strange midi device behaviours before...but so far I really can't figure out what's going on and what's wrong (And how to fix it and make it reliable enough so our lead guitarist doesn't have to be ready to jump to his pedalboard in case the program change fails each time he needs to change his sound in a song), so in short...Heeeeeeeeeeeelp !
