I’ve got my Octopus hooked up with my controller
keyboard, so that I can do various things.
But I have a problem I cannot isolate.
When I am recording input from the keyboard,
if I play an "A" for example on the keyboard,
it will be recorded as a "D" in the Octopus.
I cannot work out where this is coming from.
The Octopus successfully outputs the correct
notes if I play them from the matrix, ie if I play
an "A" and select a step as "A" that is what I get
and likewise the correct note is registered in the
I tried making sure any pitch offsets were
disabled in the Track I am working in,
but not so sure where to look for resolving my
problem. Can anyone please advise a little walkthrough on where to look to solve this, so when I play a riff on my keyboard, the Octopus doesn’t record it in a different key? Can this be something to do with scales? What should I be doing to make sure this transpose of my record efforts does not happen?

Hi Rachel, did you ever figure this one out? I was at least not able to reproduce an inconsistency from what you describe. GabrielMarch 16, 2009 at 11:06 #2307
I think I was just being an idiot.
I have the Octopus driving a CV/Gate rig
and I think I miskeyed my settings.
When tuning, I set the A440 on the System 100
relative to a note pressed on a MIDI keyboard,
which should be an A3.
This can also be offsset by the Sequencer 104
and so I need to tune that as well.
Then when I was sending Midi note A 440 from the
Octopus, I had mistakenly first transposed my
MIDI controller, so it was offset by that amount.
After I realised what I had done, I recalibrated and
tuned everything and setup a basic page on the Octopus
with the correct defaults, but it took me a long
time and frustration!
There are so many places to offset the MIDI notes,
I just got caught up in it all!

I know that feeling:whistle: .
Everytime we add one more piece of gear to the chain, the complexity increases and surely the risk of "what the f**k is going on now?" increases as well.
But this is a good excuse for using our complex setup every day!
