I got my two computers to run MOL (Midi Over LAN)and I have GS on each computer and Cakewalk Home Studio on the master computer. It seems to be working, but I can't figure out how to access ports 2 through 4 on the second (slave computer). I seem to be restricted to the first port.
Would someone tell me what to do here? I've tried a variety of things in the Cakewalk Port settings, but all the network indicated ports seem to be confined to port 1 of the slave computer.
What am I missing? Is this a Cakewalk port setting or a MOL command?
In the MOL setup you can press a "Test" button on the output of your sequencer computer, and you should be able to see a red light response in the MOL setup window of the Giga computer. Make sure you get this working for the four ports first. After that, try to connect the sequencer.
Thanks for the suggestion. Excuse my ignorance, but I don't see anything in the Midi from Lan tab that refers to 'virtual midi ports'.
What am I missing?
Any other suggestions?
I can do what you outlined. The test functions normally. I have all four GS ports accessible on the master computer with Cakewalk and I have the slaved computer working too, that is, at least the first GS port works It's just that I can't get the other 3 GS ports in the slaved computer to be recognized. The only way I can get them to sound is by locking them to the first port and then all the voices sound!
Thanks for your help. I may have stumbled on the solution. For some reason I could not get Cakewalk to designate a 6:Lan port, but just before I shut everything down, I fooled some more with the MIDI outputs in Cakewalk and the MOL settings and finally a 6: Lan port appeared on the list. I had just shut down the second computer. I'm exhausted. I'll load it with samples tomorrow and see if it works. .
