  • Highlighted pads firing with incoming MIDI even when no MIDI is assigned

    I'm on v1.1.7 and I noticed something weird: any highlighted pad will play the sample based on incoming MIDI, even when there is no MIDI channel assigned to it, but only if the highlight is on that pad when the incoming MIDI message arrives.

    To replicate:

    - Set a track to play polyphonically via MIDI
    - Set other tracks to play samples but don't assign MIDI as a trigger factor
    - Select any of the non-midi tracks

    The polyphonic track plays correctly, but whenever a pad is also highlighted it also gets influenced by incoming MIDI information! Weird. Is this supposed to happen? If so, why? It doesn't make sense.

    There's a discussion of something that sounds like what you're describing on the bottom of page 75 of the manual:

    To Play Notes and Use MIDI Modulation Signals with the Currently Selected Pad:

    This is a more global version of the procedure described in the previous section. The
    difference is that here you are setting up a MIDI channel that is not pad specific.
    Whichever pad is currently selected will respond to the MIDI channel specified as the
    MIDI Keys channel. As with the MIDI Pads setting, you can select OMNI for the MIDI
    Keys channel to have bitbox micro respond to all channels in this way. However, any
    channel that is assigned to anything else is pulled from the pool of MIDI channels that
    bitbox micro responds to in Omni mode.
    1. Push TOOLS and then scroll down to the MIDI Keys parameter.
    2. Turn the bottom knob with MIDI Keys highlighted to select the MIDI Channel
    bitbox micro will use as the global keys channel.
    3. Connect a MIDI Device to bitbox micro and set the device to use the channel
    assigned to MIDI Keys.
    4. Go to the Pads screen and select a pad to play via MIDI. Play notes on the
    MIDI Device and you will see and hear the currently selected pad respond to
    the MIDI notes. Select a different pad and play notes on the MIDI Device and
    you will see and hear the new pad respond.

      This is my best guess, too. You have a Global MIDI channel set in TOOLS.
