It's some sort of timing problem, it thinks there is a MIDI overflow and the whole display (and MIDI output) freezes for up to a second. We really have no idea what could be causing it I'm afraid.
Interesing...I get this same problem with a True Mega ST4 I have. It had worked fine for years, till one day I installed a TOS 2.06 compatability board. Notator hasn't worked since, while CuBase and other sequencers do fine.
I think maybe I have a bad timer or solder point in the Mega now. Someday when I have time to tinker I'll try to track down the problem.
Notator seems to use some timing hardware different from other sequencers. Sometimes I wonder if it's not somehow connected with the Floppy and Hard Drive part of things...as I get alot of activity on the floppy drive light that I don't see with other Sequencers. Also...in Notator, I've long had problems using floppy disks (the first one is fine, but if you change disks, the system still thinks that old disk is installed.
