Computer Keyboard triggers unwanted notes (in midi play mode)

Hey folks, 

 

the computer keyboard of my laptop repeats a played note randomly. 

 

That means when i play a "C" (by pressing and holding the "a" key on the keyboard), it sounds like: C C C CC C   C      C  CC C .. something like that...

 

So the note gets triggered more or less randomly, and the midi send indicator in the top right corner does so as well.

 

Has anyone a solution? 

 

Thanks!

    Sounds like your 'A' key is broken. Maybe you can take it out to see if somethings stuck underneath it or something?

    Ah yes- cold be the cause- but its the same with all the keys...

    It worked just well, last month or so. 

     

    But soon I will re-install live, if this doesn´t help, I think its a hardware issue...

    I'm having the same issue. Any time I hold down a key, a get an almost arpeggiated sequence of notes. Keyboard's fine. And I just installed Live, so this shouldn't be an issue.

    That's really strange guys, I'm guessing you don't have a MIDI keyboard/controller? Maybe you can borrow one from someone to see if this also happens with a MIDI keyboard (or take your laptop to a music store and try one out)? If it doesn't happen with a MIDI keyboard that would be a solution, there are cheap ones out there, which are nicer to play than a laptop/computer keyboard anyway :)

    Same problem here, macbook pro for what its worth.  Seems note repeat is always on, and if turned off, it only plays a single hit.  Any help is appreciated.

    This is happening to me as well.  Also using a Macbook pro.  It is directly tied to the operating system key repeat function.  When I disable key repeats, the note is triggered once and there is no key-off trigger.  If I enable key repeats but with a slow speed, a held key produces slow, repeated triggers.  If I increase the speed of key repeats for the system a held key will produce fast, repeated triggers.

    This is a huge usability issue for me.  My laptop keyboard was the my main method of entering midi data.

    Update: I have fully uninstalled and reinstalled Live but the issue persists.  I am using a very new laptop with no hardware issues.

    I have also tried installing the Live 9 trial to see if the issue would be resolved, but it is not.

    Resolution: As a last ditch effort I soft restarted my laptop and the issue went away.
