I recently had my computer fixed with a brand new mobo. I reloaded everything that was needed to compose again, and I ran into a problem.
I usually use the joystick port attached to the mobo for my midi. This new mobo had the port seperately. So that was installed, everything is working fine, plugged in my midi cables, and tried recording some midi. Even with all the settings being correct (I checked dozens of times), there seems to be no midi data going from the keyboard to the computer. I got the input in Cakewalk at MPU-401 which is the joystick port, but still no luck. I switched the cables, checked for loose connections, still no luck.
I did all those checks already, and the only thing that works is the midi that goes INTO my keyboard. I can\'t record any midi into my sequencer, but I can\'t have midi data going into my computer from my keyboard.
I\'ve tried everything I can think of - I switched cables to see if one was bad, messed with midi configurations on my kurzweil, updated my MPU-401 drivers, ect.
HALP ME! C\'mon you professional techies! I know nothing! HALP!
Aaron, you talked about the joystick interface
(15 pin connector I presume) and your midi in and midi out cables to your Kurzweil. You DID have a midi interface (sometimes called midi adaptor) unit in there somewhere didn\'t you, although you didn\'t mention one? A 15 pin cable that just breaks out to two midi connectors wouldn\'t work, although truthfully I don\'t know where you could get such a thing.
OKAY, I PLAN TO GO TO THE STORE to get the midisport 1x1 - now VERY QUICKLY - how is the performance in that? Someone told me it has more latency. Is this true? Is the latency the same as a joystick port (which is basically no latency)?
