Ah, great. Indeed, my device was listed there and I could enable the MIDI out over USB.
Thank you! One more cable that I can remove
I don’t understand the need for the asymmetry though.
I could see that my synth was already automatically preconfigured on USB MIDI-IN, but the configuration was not enabled on USB MIDI out.
It seems that the connection is autoconfigured for USB MIDI in but not USB MIDI out ? It seems more plug and play if this could be done automagically (and most importantly: without the need for a computer via the webconfig…). Probably a stupid question
My simplified Setup is now the following:
Hardware Synth – USB (Midi in/Midi out/Power) -> Zynthian USB
Hardware Synth – Audio out -> Zynthian Audio In.
Midi Keyboard – USB (Midi out/Power) -> Zynthian USB
Zynthian (Audio out L+R) -> Amplifier.
Zynthian (Power) -> Raspberry Pi Official Power Supply -> Wall socket.
That’s down to 6 cables
The Zynthian is the only thing of these 3 devices that is powered (both the synth and keyboard only sip power) through the standard 5V/3A power supply.
I already dispensed with an effects box (the TAL effects seem ok) and a USB interface, and a computer for recording.
I really hope that this could work self-sufficiently without actually needing a DAW or computer for recreational sound exploration most of the time
I was able to give the external synth a layer on the Zynthian by using the Audio FX Gain 2x2, and managing audio effects via the layer’s context menu. I believe that is the current recommended way ?
It’s not very clear how to manage MIDI Effects on the external synth: I’ve tried via a new Top Level Midi-FX layer connected to it, sending MIDI to the synth’s channel )?
Sorry for the obvious questions.
