    Hello everyone! I’m Daniel from Argentina en this is my first topic.
    I work as a playback engineer and at the time I managed to change the current scene on differents Surfaces on a TCP Lan network. That works great.

    Now I’m working in a project that does not have the chance to work with surfaces, instead they work with laptops and dlive Director.
    So, when I try to change the current scene on that laptop, the same way that with surface, that doesn’t work.

    The full system is:
    Laptop with cubase sending MIDI message (Program change, Go message) trough Allen & Heath MIDI control (connected to the laptop thas has director working) -> wired lan network -> laptop with director

    Another thing that I don’t understand is that on Director logs I can see the message sent from Playback laptop, but nothing happens.

    Does anyone have a clue where the problem can be?

    I am not 100 % sure, but I think you have to connect the lan network from the Cubase laptop and into the dLive mixrack instead of the director laptop.

    The Cubase laptop, the Mixrack network, and the Director laptop should all be on the same network, I would say.

    In Director: Try going to Utility > Control > MIDI and check you are on the right MIDI channels.

    I am not sure, but I think that the TCP MIDI messages need to be addressed to the Mix Rack, not the surface (director acts like a surface in this case).

    I have also observed that when using surface roles, the mix rack does not send program change messages when scenes are recalled, and it ignores them when they are received.
