ENTTEC DMX-USB Pro MK2 & MIDI

Postby EARTHLONDON » Thu Jun 01, 2017 7:22 am

We're using an ENTTEC DMX-USB Pro MK2 to send DMX triggers which works fine but would also like to use it to send MIDI notes too (as it does both simultaneously with it;s breakout cable). The device doesn't appear in the MIDI device mapper though. Is this a configuration thing on the ENTECC or is it not supported for some reason?

Thanks

Reading through ENTTECs features list...
Midi input & output ports (DMX + MIDI cable sold
separately) – MIDI needs software support

They say it needs "software support" which is leaving it up to all the various software applications to add custom MIDI support for this device. We have not done that. It really would have been nice of them to include drivers for it imo, pretty strange for a MIDI device.

Thanks Ben. Yeah that's a bit rubbish of them. Any chance you guys could give them a nudge? I'll do the same but I'm assuming someone with lots of users like yourselves will have more sway...
