I bought a midi controller. its an M-Audio Oxygen 8, my sound card is a audigy zx2...um, NOW WHAT? the instructions are useless...I hooked it up to my computer via a USB, now...do I need a midi cable? I am lost
No, you need to run the USB driver install from the CD that should have been included. If not you can find the drivers from M-Audio's site. I use the Radium and it works perfect through the USB ports. After installing the drivers, you should see a midi in port for the device in your sequencer/notation program of choice. Turn it on, set your program to record, and play away.
