Sorry for the lame title, kept it simple :)
So today I received my unit, and I'm an Ableton user, so I was hoping to plug it right away with a standard USB cable directly to my computer, and using my Prophet 6 as a midi keyboard to play the GR-1
But oh what a bad surprise, you can't actually connect it with a "normal" USB cable ! I'm suspecting to connect with a twin USB cable being a very bad idea (the one that has the exact same plug on both ends of the cable) asthe manual specificaly says "Do not connect external Hard disk drives to the USB ports, doing so can damage your GR-1", it could think the Mac is an external hard drive.
I then tried to connect with a good old MIDI cable from my Prophet 6 out to GR in, again, no luck for the unit to connect with Ableton. Even on stand alone mode.
My set up is that the Prophet 6 has it's own midi channel (number 6), I tried to share the same midi channel on the GR-1 but nothing, any other midi channel won't work either.
The only way I managed to make the Prophet 6 plays the Gr-1 was to connect it directly to the GR-1 via USB, but then of course, I can't connect it to Ableton anymore since the USB is already taken by the GR-1.
What's the trick to connect it directly to Abelon (if that's possible ?) - I just spent 2 hours trying any possible combo, cable, midi channels and so on... :(
Thanks for your help !
