Hi there Yaeltex!
I have a question regarding to my external power plug of my Yaeltex controller the ‘Holltesizer v2’.
It powers the LED inside the controller, and also the Yaeltex controller itself.
I noticed when I have everything connected to Ableton (Power Supply and USB), a little touch or wiggle on the external power it will disconnect from Ableton, the controller leds going off and everything will re-connect after a while.
When I unplug the USB and I do the same (wiggle power plug a bit) everything is working fine and the leds are staying on.
Is there some way to fix this? I do think that when the device sees a little drop in power it ask the usb to take over. It got my attention because in the last show I performed, the stage manager touched the power supply a little and then the above happened.
Perhaps the following is the solution, as one of the Yaeltex team members on Instagram message mentioned: ‘the USB is always looking at the power stability to know when to power the unit. Maybe there is a way to avoid that feature, and tell the controller that it can only be powered through the external power supply’.
I do have knowledge of the Arduino files and I already modified some colors, so please let me know if ‘telling the controller that it can only be powered through the external power supply’ would be an option and how to do this in the Arduino code:)
Once again, thank you for helping out!
All the best,
