I've just come back from a trip in my TARDIS.


That shade of blue looks nice - much less sky-blue than the online retailer images suggest..
The blue does look nice, it's "TARDIS blue"

Hmmm...I tried doing this v1.3.1 SynthTool update, but the MS-101 isn't recognized by the installer. I tried running as administrator (per page 72-73ish) to no avail. I just updated a couple other items' firmware, so I know my cable is working.

What am I missing here?

Try restart your Win/Mac and retry, this happen to me in the first try.

Use Midi-Ox if the behringer tool doesn't work. Also, set it to wait 250ms after each message. How to do this has been posted some time ago in this thread

Thanks!

For what it's worth, I did get it to work on my Mac without issue (with the same cable).

DL'd MIDI-Ox to try too.

Thanks y'all!!!

Howdy, just a tip that might help someone, who like me has had a heck of a time trying to get a MS-101 to act normally when driven by a sequencer ..... " onboard sequence starting automatically ", " device not found for update", " er, how do I sysex the thing ? " etc.

Er, simply push the ARP button ( enable arpeggio ) before sending it any Midi, the onboard sequence doesn't get enabled and the TEMPO / GATE knob doesn't do weird stuff anymore.

This is using a BeatStep Pro to run the sequence, btw.

Just talked to a local store here who received a red MS-101 in their shipment today (yes, it's labeled as a 101 - I asked). So I guess US shipments are happening?

I might impulse buy this thing tomorrow just like I did the VC340 from the same store about 6 weeks ago. No idea where I'm going to put it since I have too many synths and zero practical room. I'll report back with pics and some impressions if I end up getting it. I had a blue SH-101 which I regrettably sold back in 03 or 04.

You can now update some global settings and edit the sequencer (and more) with Behringer's new application: SynthTool. I'm testing it out with the MS-101 in this video:

Cool! Can you tie notes in the sequencer?

Screen grab from in the video:

These are the options for the sequencer editor for each note.

I like your demo Ranzee, by the looks of the B-Synth Tool it seems they are getting the idea of what we appreciate. We like these small software tools that allow us access to some of the internal goings on, so we can set it to our liking.

Agreed, but some changes, sequencer enable / disable for example, should be accessible via the hardware itself, as Sir Ranzee mentioned in an earlier video.

Removing a usb item from the chain to connect to software can cause all sorts of problems, which I learnt late last night after temporarily disconnecting a BeatStep pro from a perfectly working signal chain to switch one parameter only to have spend an hour or two troubleshooting afterwards.

( DAW >> iConnectivity Audio4+ >> BeatStep Pro via usb midi, BeatStep Pro >>> MS-101 via din midi )
