Default Dropped notes, sustain problems, random notes

Hello all,

I am using a Yamaha S80 synth through the new Avid Mbox 003. I am attempting to record a very basic piano piece using PT 8.0.4's "Mini Grand".

My problem is that I occasionally get dropped notes and sometimes the sustain pedal doesn't seem to work (comes off too early or doesn't trigger at all).

Earlier today, I also got a random note that just started playing way up high on the keyboard. So, I'm like WTF? I can't really run a recording session with these problems.

Any advice for general MIDI troubleshooting? My OS is Mac OS X 10.6.6 on a brand new iMac, so I don't think it's anything major.

Feedback is greatly appreciated,
Marc

FYI, I discovered what was causing this... The Yamaha S80 synth sends MIDI clock messages when it is in its default config. I think this is because of the arpeggiator in the synth. This was effectively flooding the MIDI channel to the point where messages were getting lost.

Anyway, I disabled the SeqCtrl in MIDI setup and viola... MIDI works perfectly.

Just thought others might benefit from this information...

PS - MIDI Monitor was how I discovered what was going on behind the scenes. It's a great utility.

Thanks so much. I have a kx88 routing through 003 to a motif xs and have experienced similar problems with phantom notes, notes sustaining, ..etc. Much improved since turning off the sequencer control *off* on the motif. Thank you.

Thanks I have been going crazy BC there is two measures in a song that have no midi notes recorded but the bass notes get stuck there every time. I have a Yam Es90. Im sure this is the issue. I will give it a try...
