KiwiTechnics FAQ
Can the PG-200 be used with the 3P upgrade? Yes   but   it   is   not   recommended,   will   cause   sound   errors   and   will   not   be   supported   by   Kiwitechics. The   PG-200   method   of   sending   data   is   nonstandard   and   will cause   issues   as   the   3P   upgrade   deals   with   it.   Note   the   this   support   has   been   removed   in   the   latest   versions   of   the   PE   &   3P   firmware   and   hardware.   If   you wish to use the PG-200 you will need to remain at the last supported versions. PEs with serial # 001404 or higher cannot run v5.0. I cannot get the Seq or Edit Write button to work in the 3P Upgrade The   memory   protect   switch   on   the   rear   of   the   3P   must   be   in   the   ‘Programmer’   position   when   writing   tones,   sequences   or   patches.   The   centre   position   will protect   the   memory.   The   ‘midi’   position   is   not   used   and   the   3P   will   accept   midi   data   when   the   switch   is   in   the   ‘Programmer’   position.   This   is   what   cutting   link W5 on the midi board does during the install. The Sequence or Edit Write buttons will flash all the Tones lights when the memory is protected. Can the Matrix 6 be used with the Patch Editor? Yes.   The   6   has   an   unfinished   sysex   that   does   not   allow   for   complete   parameter   control.   This   is   explained   in   the   user   manual.   Every   parameter   we   could   get working is now covered with the M6r patch. Ableton Live will not record or pass some synths? Ableton Live does not record or pass Sysex codes. Any synth that uses sysex cannot be used with this software and the PE. I tried to upload a new program file to a Kiwitechnics product and it freezes during the Program File upload? The   Program   file   is   a   large   file   and   if   the   buffer   size   and   midi   hardware   combination   is   not   correct   all   the   file   will   not   be   sent   to   the   PE   or   upgrade.   If   you   are using   MidiOX   then   try   reducing   the   Buffer   size   to   128   or   less   and   add   a   small   packet   delay.   This   will   cause   MidiOX   to   send   the   file   slower   so   your   hardware may   keep   up   better.   The   PE   and   upgrades   can   keep   up   with   full   speed   but   many   midi   interfaces   cannot.   The   supported   midi   interfaces   list   shown   in   kiwi- will work for any kiwitechnics products
