I have a roland G8 linked to a mac running latest OS thru a Presonus Firebox running Logic 9.
I downloaded a logic environment from somewhere(the only one I could find for a G8)
2 irritating issues.
When powering up saved patches are incorrect. Some patches respond with a program change...
So here is the final reply:
gave up on the M Audio Firewire audiophile, bought a Presonus firebox and suddenly I have a stable set up. No notes sustaining. Everything as it should be.
I must say that you have to remain patient . So in summing up, I was unclear about the correct settings on...
thanks Frank for that, I disconnected the midi out cable however the note hanging continued. Twice double checked that I had the correct midi cables connected to the correct in and out etc.
I connected a Tascam Midi interface to my set up and discovered that all but 1 channel were free of the...
xv 5080 hanging notes
so I still have the hanging notes in midi mode. Upgraded to Logic 9, reinstalled 10.6.2, upgraded M audio drivers. Thats all I can think of. That seems to be everything. All midi cords and usb cords in setup renewed.
No hanging notes when using VST's...
lessening logic midi xv frustration
SO I meticulously went thru the 32 "voices" (as suggested by GBLACK) and selected appropriate midi on and midi off for the first sixteen voices and the second sixteen voices, saved the changes to the template PR_A 01 Seq-Template in the XV5080.
When you say
"setting the performance such that voices 17-32 have Midi 1 and Midi 2 receive BOTH OFF. That way, the 16 channels you are using will only get one bank/patch message."
are you referring to the performance template Pra-1 SEQ. ?
where are the settings for voices 17-32?
hi Gil and all,
reinstalled OS10.5.8, reinstalled correct drivers for M audio, checked roland template SEQ PRA:01---installed Gblacks' XV5080 Environment, checked correct ports (for me- Firewire Audiophile), checked programs and bank selects.
Now, I have 24 ish midi tracks...
XV5080 Frustration Con't
O.K. in the logic pro manual it says 'double clicking a multi instrument window opens the Multi instrument window.
Firstly--- it doesn't.
I have used this window from the Multi int. in Logic 6.4 doing exactly this. I.e typing in names for various patch banks and...

con't Logic XV5080 frustration
that was extra good of you to post all those settings on the forum. I did check all as posted, inc. 'last used instruments' etc and thanks to George as well for his comments on the aspect of replacing all cables , which I did,( all firewire all new...
Thanks for the recommendation. yes I did replace the midi cables. Its just weird that it doesn't do it when I solely use Audio in Logic. However the problem with the program change still persists as does the sustaining notes.
Anyway thanks for your time and your...
notes still sustained
thanks for that. I have run through System/ Utility on the Xv 5080 and changed the device ID from 17 to 18. I fiddled with all menu items on Xv interface regarding receive switch, bank select, program change. I rtied both sysex receive on and off and with the far...
param boxes are always checked...
found the 'send all used instrument ETC' and that is ticked..
seemed to have set all XV options to on but couldn't find 'receive midi reset'
thanks for your offer of posting your settings.
Also is there any benefit re: the above problem upgrading to...
Cont. Logic Roland XV5080 frustration

I poked around those Logic Midi preferences that you suggested;
I did the Midi reset one
although wasn't able to pinpoint your other two suggestions being
1...'tell Logic to send all midi to instruments on load?'....coudn't find...
midi roland problems
thank you for you reply.At this point I will become more specific.
The Xv 5080 promotes the use of a performance template called PR-A 01 SEQ template. This is the performance that I use which is on midi channel 1(default for this performance).
From here on in...
Having upgraded to logic 8 from Logic 6.4 I have almost got to a point whereby the technology is so confounding that I am not involved in music any more but involved in software. I decided to ditch midi several years ago and go as the industry seems to be pushing me towards software instruments...
