Cannot grab MIDI Song Pointer system common messages :-(

September 18, 2012 | 1:54 pm

Hi there,

I’m trying to grab MIDI Song Pointer system common messages from some hardware devices.
afaik, this value is sent as a 14bit message and xbendin2 seems the perfect way to grab it.

I don’t have anything.
what can I miss?

Is is possible my Audio DJ8 have a filter (wtf?!) software or hardware ?

any leads would be nice.

System common messages have nothing to do with pitchbend. You may try the following patch:

oops, obvious name indeed.
I never used that one and thought about a global grabber for 14bit encoded stuff.

okay for the F2 prefix etc.
Now, I can say : my monomachine DOESN’T pop out any MIDI Song Pointer messages =(

Thanks Patrick!
