Default MOTU USB and HUI

Has anybody got a working, reliable combination of BW G3, MOTU USB interface and HUI and can let me know which extensions (versions) make it stable ?

It took weeks for me to come to finally hash out my system and the MOTU USB and the HUI simply did not get along. Changed to a serial Crimepiece and Viola! HUI is fine...

Which MOTU interface are you using? I've configured a few systems using the Fastlane and it's kind of a chore. If you follow these steps, it should work.

Install OMS 2.3.8, restart
Install FreeMidi 1.4.2, restart
Launch FreeMidi, configure the the Fastlane and check "Use OMS"
Lauch OMS, the Fastlane should now be seen. Configure the HUI as normal.
Be sure to uncheck "Use serial DMA..." in the OMS prefs and be sure to check the HUI as an input device in PT5.

Seems to be fairly solid but I would definately recommend using a Gport or Stealth Port for serial connection instead.

Default Re: MOTU USB and HUI

I was having problems using Gallery's EMU File Assistant software with my USB (MOTU MTP AV and XT) midi interfaces. Switched to a cheap serial interface for communication with the sampler and it now works very well. USB and midi seems to work in a different way to serial and midi....in what way I don't really know. I am considering going back to serial on my G4 (stealth port) for all midi until USB is a bit more established....I asked MOTU tech and they said there should be no problem mixing USB and serial so I will use serial for the more sensitive devices and USB for the others.....

hope this helps

Richard,

What version of firmware are you using on the HUI. The reason I ask, we are currently using 1.3 (I know get out of the stone-age)...but it works fine with a MOTU AV USB. I have 1.4.5 on the way from MOTU, but if it's going to cause a problem I would like to know.

Matt

It's an XT interface and we're running FreeMIDI 1.4.3. I have been told that 1.4.2 is more stable so we'll give that a go.

I'll also check on HUI firmware, but I think the problem lies with the USB/B&W as the HUI was fine and dandy running serial through the XT from a good old beige G3. Thanks Mac!

I have a new G4/350/DVD-RAM w/320meg RAM and I can make Pro Tools 5.0 crash with an error 3 (also 1,2,10,11 and others, but mostly 3) in less than 30 seconds when my HUI is connected to my MTP/AV/USB and defined in PT. It seems that there is a MIDI loop somewhere but I can't discover the cause of the problem. When I disconnect the HUI's midi cables and leave everything else(interface, modules, keys etc.) I can't MAKE Pro Tools crash. I've even tried turning off MIDI thru in PT's MIDI menu. I wish I knew how to make my HUI work

BTW Matt the Cat: HUI's firmware is 1.45.

Anyone have any idea's on what to do?

My set-up:

G4 350/DVD-RAM w/320 RAM (AGP graphics)
PCI slot 1: Digi(Magma) 13 slot chassis host card (MixPlus w/extra Mix Farm and Samplecell in chassis (four cards)
PCI slot 2: ATI RAGE (can't give it up yet)
PCI slot 3: ATTO PCI Express DC

10 gig ATA internal
2x9 gig Digi drives on ATTO

USB 1: Keyboard, mouse
USB 2: Jaton 4 port Hub w/i-mate and Wave Key, MOTU Timepiece AV/USB
