I’ve had similar experiences with the MIDI device from Speech
Systems. I traced my problem to overrunning the MIDI device
with to much data. Pitch wheel and modulation controllers
are the worst since they really put out a LOT of data.
Next I suppose are drum machines but I never record the drums.
I alwas slave the drum machine to the clock in the Coco Midi-II.

Try some experiments with simple pieces. Oh, make sure none of your
MIDI gear is send out “active sensing”. That can just add to
the logjam.

Hope that helps a little.

I’ve often wondered what it would take to make a Coco-3 specific
version that utilitizez the higher speed. Maybe Frank DeLargy
will see this messgage.

    Thanks for the input, but mine happens on the simplest of two-part pieces. My
    keyboard is a Casio CPS-101, which, near as I can tell, puts out no active
    sensing.

    Thanks anyway,

    Bill

    After-touch keyboards can also send quite a bit of extra stuff too.
    Of course, like pitch bend and mod wheels, you’d really like
    to record this part of your playing too, but…. mike k
