Hise recognizing Midi but not triggering samples..
Willem B. last edited by Willem B.
I'm running into an unexpected issue where Hise is picking up my Midi Keyboard signal (The Midi Activity Led flickers) however is not trigging the samples. I fooled around with the Midi settings and even switched the Midi keyboard I'm using but nothing has worked so far. I'm able to play the samples using the on screen keyboard but just can't get any Midi player to trigger the samples.
Are you using Mac?
Have you found your keyboard in the MIDI devices list?
Have you selected "All Channels" in the MIDI settings, and/or, are you sure your keyboard is sending on the good channel (or omni to be sure)?
Is your keyboard working with another software?
Have you tried a new Hise Preset with just a sinewave generator, not changing anything else except your MIDI settings?
I recently had an issue with a MIDI keyboard (like the cheap ones from Akai or something related...) where it was impossible to make it working with my app export project. I tried on another computer, same result... Other keyboards were working though, and this one was working with other software... Yep I know, strange...
@arminh Yes, macOS Sierra 10.12.6
Yes to all.
very occasionally a single note will play which makes me think something is wrong with the midi keyboard but it works perfectly in other softwares and the same issue occurs even with a different Midi keyboard. Not sure if this hints at anything though.
@Willem-B Sure it is strange behaviour...
What is your Hise version?
@ustk Definitely, 2.1.0 Stand Alone
When did you download it?
Actually, I'm having difficulties to compile the last versions, but I know for sure the commit from the 28th is working
@Willem-B build scriptnode branch projec. I had this issue on niemal 2.1.0

Does it play back the sine wave generator? When you play on your keyboard do you see the on-screen keyboard triggering? Do the meters in HISE move when you play?
Hi there, Willem and I work together. I made a video to explain the issue we're facing. Here it is:
Also, specs recap:
- Hise version 2.1.0
- MacOs Sierra 10.12.6
- Keyboard m-audio keystation 61es (although we tried with Maschine and a Novation midi keyboard and the issue remains)
The patch is built following the HISE Tutorial.
Hi @Tristan-A and welcome
That is a really weird issue effectively
Following your specs, I would suggest rebuilding the last scriptnode commit
But before trying with a sampler, have you tried with just a sinewave generator in a new preset? I think Willem said yes but, just to be sure... If the problem persists after that, you'll probably need to monitor the MIDI information in log window via a bit of code

Yeah, @hisefilo reported this a few months ago, it's fixed by now. The problem was an uninitialised value that caused the
ignoreflag of the MIDI message to get activated sometimes.

@Christoph-Hart Thank you for your reply. I'm not sure I understand what I should do to correct it? (I'm an ultimate rookie at coding. I'm learning it the hard way.)

@Tristan-A You just have to download and compile the last scriptnode branch (not the master or develop branch) from github
The reason is probably that you're using an outdated version of Hise
@ustk Awesome! It works! Thanks so much. We actually downloaded an outdated folder. Thanks so much for the quick responses and efficiency! You guys rock!

@Tristan-A I have exactly the same problem. I have recompiled scriptnode hise. now the midi keyboard works in the Hise software but not in the exported vst ... I don't understand. even with a simple vst sinus wave ... how can i do that? with mac
I had this isue with some old Hise builds, now everything work.
