Serious issues when using MIDI solutions Quadra Thru with Deluge!

1

Hi All,

We are transitioning our midi brain from Electribe 2S to Deluge and using our MIDI solutions Quadra Thru now seems dangerous!

Deluge midi controls Moog Minitaur, Minilogue and TR8 (so far).

The problem is that we encounter stuck notes issues every 30s (on both synths), random notes lost (on TR8) and late program changes :-(

This is our midi splitter: http://www.midisolutions.com/prodqth.htm (multivoltage)

Note that this splitter worked well with the Electribe 2s (apart some midi notes that were lost on the TR8) but I also understand that passive splitters can be unreliable with some hardware sequencers...

What should we do? Which midi splitter (4 outs enough) works 100% with deluge in your experience?

Thanks in advance for your help!

    Is it just a question of choosing an active box vs passive? For ex., does the Kenton THRU-5 seem like a good solution (preventing all the issues listed above to happen)?

    maybe you got a midi feedback loop? can lead to very strange effects.

    I have both boxes but never tried the Quadra Thru with my Deluge. It’s running off my MV8800 without any issues the last 5 years. Ive only used the Kenton THRU-5 with the Deluge. Even hang a midi to DIN Sync converter (Kenton) off one of the ports to sync my RE-303. No drops or weird timing issues.

    How long are your midi cable runs? Passive boxes start having issues with multiple long cable runs. I keep short cables on both setups but would definitely go all active if I had long cables and multiple runs of them.
