I have a Buchla Easel Command and it does NOT have the USB Host adapter. I am trying to use the Morph with the Thunder overlay to control the Easel and I have had some (limited) success.
I am routing the Morph through Ableton Live 11. I have “MPE” checked in the Live MIDI setup. The channel is setup to route the Morph input to the Easel via a MIDI DIN cable. I have the latest firmware in the Morph, and I have loaded the latest Easel overlay.
While it does work, I find it is not very much like I see explanations in videos. For example, a note will play when I press a pad, but it plays again when I release. The timbre and modulation seem to work via the Y sliding and pressure, but the X position is super sensitive and is often out of pitch. When I use preset 2 it is on pitch, but then doesn’t respond to X slide at all.
I guess my question is, is this something that requires the USB Host adapter in the Easel? I am struggling to make it work like, for example, in this video: Sensel Morph and Easel Command Separate Oscs - YouTube. I don’t mean sending to both oscillators using different channels, I mean just the clear, on-pitch tones that are demonstrated.
Thanks for any insight into why my setup is being so quirky
