i´m a n00b and figuring out how to use my new Percussa SSP at the moment.
My sequencer (Deluge) is in bits, being upgraded with a new panel and other things, so i can´t use it to play my SSP.
I can´t seem to use anything else either; i have:
- Elektron Digitone, Analog Rytm mk1, Monomachine, Machinedrum
- N.I. Maschine
I also have a CV.OCD which converts din-midi to cv/gate-signals. But i have tried using it with Digitone without any luck; maybe i´m doing it wrong, i´m not entirely sure how to make sure the cv/gate signals from it gets connected right.
And, i have a computer running maschine software, Ableton and more.
I don´t have a “normal” keyboard with either midi out or usb.
The elektron devices above are at the moment useless since the USB on Digitone can´t be used to connect to a usb-host like the percussa and play it or send sequences to it. Same with Rytm i guess.
The other devices only have standard midi outputs.
- I can buy a cheap keyboard or perhaps a Beatstep Pro with usb toi play and sequence the Percussa.
- I can buy an adapter for Din-MIDI to USB, like this: https://www.webhallen.com/se/product/301798-Roland-UM-ONE-mk2
The Roland cable is cheapest, and i think it lets me use most of my machine to play my SSP; the Maschine, Digitone and the others. However it uses power from ther USB connection, so i hope that´s not a problem? I can get this cable adapter today if i decide, soi can be happy all weekend.
My third option is to wait until my Deluge is running but that can take weeks and i cant stand waiting that long.
What do you think, is it doable?
