POD X3 Live vs MIDI

Recommended Posts

I am in the same boat. I found this in another thread:

 

"The X3 midi interface is not a full midi implementation. It does not recognize or pass THRU the note on/off commands that are critical for recording midi sequences. So you can't record midi sequences form your keyboard using your X3."

 

I want to use my synth with Ableton Live to record MIDI tracks but I don't think it's possible with the X3 Live. I thought I could connect the MIDI OUT from my synth to the X3 Live and then use the USB connection from the X3 Live to my laptop running Ableton. I think instead I will have to connect my synth to my Midiman USB controller and then connect that directly to my laptop / Ableton. I haven't had much luck with that either though! I also wonder if Ableton is able to manage multiple USB inputs so that I will be able to use my synth and X3 Live at the same time.

Running two USB cables into Ableton simultaneously seems to work fine: I connected the X3 Live to Ableton via USB as usual and also connected a synth to record MIDI via a separate USB cable (with a Midiman). Now the only problem is that I've run out of space on my desk to fit everything!
