    Hammond XK5 midi setup

    Just wondering if anyone can help.

    I have a new Hammond XK5, and I am attempting to use it as a midi controller within Pro Tools 12.

    The Organ is connected to the Mac via USB from the "To Host" port. The Mac recognises the Hammond as a MIDI input device, but playing the keys has no effect on any instrument plug in.

    I have read the Manual, and have not been able to detect any reason why it would not be recognising the MIDI input.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I'm a PC guy so not familiar with mac or pro-tools. Have you tried using a MIDI monitor app to see if and what is being transmitted by the XK-5?

    I know this sounds stupid...but make sure the Midi channel of the "external" is set to the same channel as the sound module and RX and TX are turned on. on both units. I believe the XK-5 is set up with 3 external Midi channels for upper, 2 external channels for the lower keyboard, and 1 channel for the pedal. There are also 5 Midi templates on the XK-5 .....at least in the owner's manual I downloaded. this should make setting up your presets easier on the XK-5.

    sounds like the RX or TX may be off or Midi channels on each unit not set the same so they can "hear" each other.

    Did you ever figure it out? I'm trying to use GarageBand electric pianos on the XK5 and see the signal but don't have sound.
