Troubleshooting

PostTue Jan 24, 2023 4:22 pm

May I ask advice on a version 4 Hauptwerk system running the Salisbury sample set that has been working well for years, but has recently developed faults? The problems are:
1. For several months, pressing a key on the choir manual causes Hauptwerk to restart.
2. More recently, pressing various keys on the other keyboards (the same notes on the different keyboards) causes several notes to sound, and not just the note that applies to that key.
We recently moved the organ, but I wonder if this is more likely to be a software issue than a hardware one? Would you agree with that or not? Has anyone any advice on what I should do? Many thanks!

I would think it is actually more likely a hardware issue. The clue is you recently moved the organ! What kind of hardware is driving the console? Also, did you recently do any operating system upgrades (or were they foisted upon you?). The problems sound like midi related problems to me. Use Midi Ox or a related program to see what messages are sent when you play the choir manual, or the keys that play several notes at once. The organ's new home might be a lot "noisier" electronically, or there's a problem with the hardware.

Thanks for that. I guess you must be right and its a midi-related issue in some way. I will try what you suggest.

Do you have flat cables with 'Micromatch' connectors linking your keyboards to your MIDI encoder?
Micromatch connectors do not like being moved and if they are only slightly loose they can cause exaclyl the kind of symptoms your describe.
