Hello,

Watchout V.5.1
Midi Controller: KorgNaNO2

as soon as I raise a fader too fast,or more faders simultaneously,I get a message: "Error:Midi I/O buffer overflow"
Do you know how to solve this problem?

Thanks

Regards

JP

I am getting the same error with WO4.3 and Korg Nano Kontrol.

There is no information about this error on the support documentation.

Does anyone know what is this about and how to solve it?

Thanks

I'm having the buffer overrun problems with this Korg Nano 2 controller and Watchout, though I've seen it work perfectly with other software. If I move one fader at a time I don't have any problems, but if I move two faders quickly to full travel in either direction the 'status bar' in the input window stops moving at a random number (OTHER than 1 or 0) in the middle of the travel and I get the buffer overrun error.

The problem Luca mentioned is based on the fact that the controller identifies the first fader as control '0' and Watchout will only recognize Midi channels starting with 1. This seems like a simple thing that could be corrected in the next version of watchout?

The buffer overrun thing may be specific to our Korg controllers... though the fact that other software (I've got it working in Resolume Avenue at the moment) responds perfectly makes it sound like there's something up with the midi implementation in Watchout?

Is there more info I can provide that will make tracking these issues down easier?

With a KontrolEditor software you can change your controller setup, patch ...

I think that my be a difference in the implementation of the MIDI standard.
If you read the published protocol, there is no MIDI Channel 0, they start at 1.
The published protocol states that MIDI channel 1 has a hex value of 0,
so Korg may be interpreting things a bit differently.

There are sixteen MIDI channels available.
Some vendors choose to incorrectly label them 0-15
while others choose to correctly label them 1-16.
So if your Korg offers 0-15,
then likely Dataton MIDI channel 1 = Korg MIDI channel 0, etc.

There are good articles about buffer overflow in the May issue of Exploiting Software Hakin9. You can read the teaser here http://hakin9.org/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2012/05/HES_05_2012_Teasers1.pdf

The article is irrelevant to the above problems.

I had a buffer overflow error message once when i was testing out a borrowed Behringer BCF 2000 with Watchout 5.x. I can't recall exactly but I think the error message is due either to a connection error between Watchout and the MIDI controller or a wrong setting on the Controller such that it is sending something that overloads the MIDI inputs on the WO computer. I solved it then but can't remember what I did exactly.

Check all your inputs and output connections between MIDI Controller and Watchout PC (should be simple basic stuff), and read the manual of the MIDI Controller.

This will be fixed in the upcoming 5.3 release.
Not in version 4 though.

MIDI I/O errors were addressed with improvements in the MIDI support of WATCHOUT 5.3. ;)

Error: Buffer Overflow

 

Anyone know what this error means? Doesn't seem to affect anything...show still performs fine. Can't seem to replicate it consistently either.

In what context are you encountering this error?

We would see errors like that with MIDI in older versions, what version are you using?
