Hey what's up everybody?? I've been producing for a couple years now, but I've always just used a midi controller connected via usb to play my VSTi's (mainly minimonsta, slayer, omnisphere, etc.). Now I have a Roland Fantom X-6 and I'm trying to record those sounds into Logic. I'm running Logic Pro 8, and my audio interface is a Presonus Firebox. I have the Fantom connected to the Firebox via the MIDI I/O. I have logic recognizing the Fantom, but when I try and play it the sounds are distorted and sustained. Also, the area at the bottom of the arrange window where it shows the note you are playing will jump around from note to note. (Say I play an A...it will jump to C#, D, E#m, etc.). Is it an input problem? Maybe a setting that I am missing? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!!

These sound like the usual symptoms of midi feedback. Which means that, when you press a key, it sends a midi note to the external sound source, which in turn sends that same data back to Logic on the same channel, which in turn gets sent back to the ext sound source again.. you know, feedback. Only in midi terms, not audio terms. So the result is, lots of notes get triggered and a big mess is made.
You need to change some settings in the Fantom. I'd start by turning 'local' off. You'll also need to make sure that it's not sending midi thru on the same midi channel, which is what will cause the symptoms you are describing. Has been a while since I actually used an external keyboard for anything other than a master keyboard, so I'm a bit rusty on the actual settings, plus I never used a Fantom. But you should be able to find what you need to do pretty easily in the Fantom midi settings, and in its user manual. If there's a setting to turn off 'midi thru', try that. Also if it's receiving and sending on the same channel, try changing them to different channels.
