hope someone here can help me out. i have two doepfer mcv4s. one works as expected to trigger my roland sh-7 with no issue (currently borrowing this working doepfer from a friend) the other one (mine), using the same power supply, same cables, same source midi, does not trigger the gate and instead the you can sort of barely hear the sequence running but its obvious that the ext/cv/sh setting is looking to the s/h to trigger the gate, as it does in the absence of a gate signal. to make things interesting, the one that doesnt seem to work as expected on the sh-7 works fine with my sc pro-one. i know the doepfer has options that are changed with midi program changes while in learn mode, i have tried multiple different settings there to no effect. i cannot tell what settings the working one is set to and thats kindof a pain. i have done a system reset on the one that doesnt work, has no effect on the problem. I am afraid to do a system reset on the working one because i would like to have at least one of my midi->cv/gate converters working. the jumper on the inside is set to the same position. any thoughts? do you think mine could just be faulty or does it sound like a settings issue? any help is appreciated.
