FIXED:Midi In CHOP not receiving

TouchDesigner_BDjLeQeub7

You can see in my gif that the midi mapper is seeing Device 2 events just fine, but the Midi In CHOP has stopped seeing events. Is there something I could try to un-jam this?

Happening with a brand new fresh .toe in Win10 2022.26590

Hm.
Is the ‘Pulse Preserve’ off or on in that CHOP?
Does toggling it make a difference?

‘Preserve Pulses’ is off.

Turning it on makes the CHOP respond to MIDI inputs. Turning it back off makes the CHOP not respond at all again.

Unfortunately, the functionality of ‘preserve pulses’ does not meet my requirements, so I am unable to use that as a workaround.

Hm. Okay, interesting.
The 2021 version of TouchDesigner was not timesliced, but only cooked when new events were received, which this version is trying to support.
We’ll investigate further.

Okay this will be fixed in builds 2022.26640 and later.
So in Simplified Input mode, the CHOP will only cook when events arrive as before, unless Pulse Preserve is on, forcing it to cook each frame, as a time sliced CHOP.

2022.26640 Changelog:

  • MIDI support added

Just stumbled on this after building a session i need to use this weekend, and this is a pretty big dealbreaker. Any ETA on a hotfix? Do I need a plan B for friday?

@drmbt Here’s the build.

Let me know if you need it for macOS.

:pray:thank you!

This was inconvenient for me last weekend. Lesson learned- install parallel builds when updating days before an event.
