Not working – Clavinova connection to Simply Piano

MIDI cable is connected “Out to In” and “In to Out”

Host select is “MIDI”

Below: C note is recognised

Below: C note is recognised, but previous C note still shows up on app

Below: Middle C not recognised

On start-up App recognises MIDI connection

As the problem looked intermittent we also tried adding a lightning power cable to the adaptor just in case it was a signal strength problem. No luck though (SP doesn’t recognise the MIDI connection at all)
And finally on video….

Hastings new lifeboat

The new Shannon class lifeboat, which will be named as the Richard and Caroline Colton, returning after crew training session on Saturday 3rd November.


The Shannon is the latest class of all-weather lifeboat to join the RNLI fleet, and being capable of 25 knots it is almost 50% faster than the old Mersey class lifeboat previously stationed at Hastings. She is also the first modern all-weather lifeboat propelled by waterjets instead of propellers, making her the most agile and manoeuvrable all-weather lifeboat in the RNLI fleet.

Measuring just over 13m in length and weighing in at 18 tonnes, the Shannon is the smallest and lightest of current all-weather lifeboats, meaning she can be launched straight off the beach via a new and improved Shannon Launch and Recovery System (SLARS).

The current Mersey will stay as the operational lifeboat at Hastings, being used for all call-outs, until the crew have been fully trained and passed out as competent to handle the new lifeboat at which point the Sealink Endeavour will leave, as yet to an unknown fate.


The new boat will be officially named in a ceremony at the station on 27th April, 2019.
