Is other software using the midi device, like configuration software or DAW? Usually (on Windows at least) only one program can use a midi device at a time.

I think we need more information to help you:

  • What’s your OS (Win, Mac, Linux)?
  • Does this happen on sending MIDI from VCV to the controller or on receiving MIDI from the controller?
  • What do you mean by ‘a module crashes’? Does the Rack itself crash? If so, could you please provide the error-logfile?
  • It would also be helpful to post the VCV patch that causes the problem so someone here in the community can try to recreate the error?

I’m guessing, the Orba is sending MPE, and you have to use an MPE Midi-CV module.

Edit to add: I see now that VCV Midi-CV has MPE now.

Perhaps some tips here for MidipolyMPE

i<m using window 10, the the complet vcv crashes as soons as it detects the obra. and i have tried many differrent patches all the same. here is a error log file

IMO the best is to submit an issue in the issue tracker: Issues · VCVRack/Rack · GitHub

Surround code/terminal output blocks with ``` on its own line. I’ve edited your post for you.
