I'd originally posted this in a Technical Help room, and someone there kindly pointed out that most people hang out here, and suggested I repost my question here....
I got a new Windows 8 laptop about a month ago and finally got around to trying to put a bunch of my "recreational" software onto it today. Got to the EWI USB and Garritan Player software and can't get it to work. The software will make a sound with the built-in keyboard, but I don't get proper notes with the EWI. Added ASIO4ALL, got the latest updates (such a they are) from the Akai site, and nothing.
Grabbed VSTHOST and tried that - same effect.
Tried turning on Windows 7 compatibility mode - again, no useful result. No response to the EWI.
Anyone have any ideas on getting this working with Windows 8?
I've got an old netbook computer kicking around here that I'm going to dig out and see if I can get it to run the program. At least then I'd have something still capable of dealing with the EWI.
