I have a Reface CS (it's great!) but on this occassion I'm trying to use it in a MIDI setup and I'm not sure what I'm trying to do is possible. I'm trying to play sounds from a tone bank from a sequencer using the CS in the middle so I can use the pitch bend.
1) I connect a midi sequencer to the MIDI IN on the CS, this works as expected, the sequenced notes play out on the CS
2) I connect a midi tone bank to the MIDI OUT on the CS, hoping that the sequenced notes will then trigger tones on the tone bank but this doesn't happen. If I press keys on the CS manually, it does play tones from the tone bank.
It feels like the MIDI IN is doing just that, it plays the CS but won't go any further. I'm using channel 1 everywhere. I've tried turning 'local control' and 'midi control' on/off but it doesn't seem to help, maybe I'm doing something wrong.
The reason I'm not going from the sequencer direct to the tone bank is because I'd like to use the CS's pitch bend control, neither the sequencer or tone bank have that facility.
Any help greatly received!
