CorOS Version: 2.2.1
Describe your issue:
I have a Morningstar MC8 sending MIDI to my Quad Cortex, Strymon BigSky and Microcosm using an expression pedal. When using my expression pedal, the BigSky and Microcosm react exactly as I expect (as if my EXP was direct to pedals instead of MC8). However, the Quad Cortex has a lot of lag, both visually and audibly.
If I rock the pedal back and forth fast enough, the QC effect reacts as if it had extreme latency.
Steps to reproduce your issue:
MIDI cable from Morningstar MC8 MIDI out to Quad Cortex MIDI In.
Set MC8 Omniport to Expression, TRS cable from Omniport to Expression Pedal.
In Morningstar Editor, set Expression to control CC#1 and CC#2 of Quad Cortex (Expression 1 and 2).
Set up Wah Block on Quad Cortex and assign expression parameters. EXP 1 for Wah effect and EXP 2 for bypass (toe toggle).
Use expression pedal as wah pedal as normal. This is where the lag happens, if you move the pedal fast enough. The Quad Cortex doesn’t react fast enough to the MIDI.
I expected this to happen:
Exactly as above but the Wah should react as if my expression pedal was plugged directly into the EXP1 socket on the Quad Cortex. My BigSky and Microcosm are reacting perfectly to the MIDI, so why not the Quad Cortex?
I have tried the following things:
- I have tried using different MIDI cables and TRS cables
- I have tried swapping each pedal to different channels and positions in the MIDI chain
- I have tried fully updating the Quad Cortex and rebooting
- I have tried different power supplies
