Hi again. Thanks for your continued attention.
total data errors: 44 (then rises)
Peak error rate: 1.70
Wi-fi connection to macbook air with latest codec for rsTouch. No other midi connection, either wired or wireless or bluetooth.
I hope that helps.
rsTouch asks Reason what version of the rsTouch codec is in use and displays either a warning or an error when a mismatch, depending on how much the mismatch impacts expected operation. If there was a codec version problem rsTouch would clearly communicate that.
"Total data errors" shows the cumulative errors recorded since rsTouch was started, or last brought back to the foreground. You can also restart the count by tapping the "Clear" button. This number increases every time an error is detected. rsTouch periodically requests status information from Reason so even if everything is idle there is still an opportunity to detect an error.
rsTouch calculates the average number of errors within a moving time window. This provides a sense of the connection quality. The "iButton" flashes depending on the most recent average error rate calculation. "Red" means a high error rate, "Yellow" a more modest rate. No flashing means everything is working as expected. "Peak error rate" shows the worst case average error rate that has been recorded since the error tracking system was last cleared.
Try this experiment. Load a Reason project and get rsTouch connected and working as normal. Set your iPad down on a desk or other surface approximately where you normally use rsTouch. Leave Reason idle, and watch rsTouch's "iButton" for a short while. Does it just flash red, or does it cycle through a pattern of flashing red, then yellow, then stop for a brief instance, and finally back to red? Like this:
red -> yellow -> off -> red -> yellow ...
There is one thing you should check in your set up. Open up macOS's Audio Midi Setup application and bring up the "MIDI Network Setup" window. Select the session you use for rsTouch in the "My Sessions" list. At the lower right you will find "Live routings" and two popup menu items. Make sure both of those popups show "-". They should not
be shown connected to any MIDI source/destination.
