I\'m new to the world of the PC and GIGA. I\'ve got the Hammerfall HDSP9652 and it works great, but I\'m wondering what the best solution is to add more MIDI inputs. I currently have two on the Hammerfall and would like to use all 4 available inputs to GIGA.
Is USB such as a MIDI sport 4x4 a viable solution or is there something that\'s more robust?
I\'m a little confused. What does a MIDI interface have anything to do with GigaStudio\'s midi channel operations? I have 1 keyboard that I plan to hook with a midisport 1x1. Is this a wrong choice for using with GS? Do I need more than 1x1?
The 1x1 is fine for interfacing a single keyboard. I use it to go from my Kurzweil PC-88 to my Giga PC.
I also have a second PC for the sequencer. I use MidiOverLan (MOL) for that. One direction takes the keyboard MIDI from the Giga PC to the sequencer PC. The other direction takes the sequencer output to Giga. The MidiOverLan folks have a little MIDI routing utility that lets me send the MIDI from the 1x1 simultaneously to Giga and to the MOL connection to the Sequencer PC. I reconfigure things as needed depending on if I\'m sequencing or just playing live.
A diagram would probably be more clear than the rats maze I just typed...
