3.5mm Midi port not working



I am using the 3.5mm jack that came with my FLXS1, and when I set the Tempo to 3.5mm Midi and send it Midi from my DAW “Ableton” the FLXS1 will not start. I have tried multiple MakeNoise cables.

I am currently on 20b1

thanks for any insight into this issue


An update, with Ableton as master and connecting a Midi cable directly from the MOTU Midi Express to the FLXS1 the unit will not respond. When running the Midi out of the MOTU Midi Express into the Malekko Sync. module, then Midi out of the Malekko Sync. to the FLXS1, the unit responds, not sure the reasoning for this.
