I hope someone can help me. The short version of my problem is GigaStudio 3 is receiving MIDI but not playing the loaded sample.
I have 3 Windows XP Pro computers, 2 Custom VisionDAW and 1 Laptop, lots of extra drives and sample libraries.
Computer 1. DAW has Sonar 7 PE, Sibelius and Halion (Broadway Big Band)
Computer 2. DAW has GS3 Orch and Kontakt 2 (and most of the libraries - VSL, Sonivox, Garritan and others)
Computer 3. Laptop has Kontakt 2 and Halion with the Sonivox and BBB samples on an external hard drive
All communicate with MIDIoverLAN
The Laptop works perfecty playing either K2 (Sonivox Orchestra) or Halion (BBB when MIDI is sent from Sonar on Computer 1 - no problems.
I can also use Halion on Computer 1 to play the BBB in Rewire mode (which is why it is there).
On Computer 2, Kontakt 2 works perfectly playing it's samples when MIDI is sent from Sonar on Computer 1
I NEVER RUN KONTAKT AND GIGASTUDIO AT THE SAME TIME.
Gigastudio is definitely receiving the MIDI from Sonar on Computer 1. Not only are the ltlle MIDI lights flashing but the MIDI Monitor view actually shows the MIDI note numbers, controllers, program changes, etc., when MIDI is sent from Sonar or via keyboard. However, the little on-screen piano keyboard doesn't move and I hear no sample playing. If I click on the on-screen keyboard with the mouse, it depresses, the sample plays and I hear it. I am certain the MIDI assignments are correct because I have checked them many times and used them correctly with the other programs. I have gone through all the Configuration Manager and GS settings I can think of and checked the manual, the Audio Outputs, DSP setting, the firewall settings, etc. as well as worked through this with a friend who also uses GS. We are mystified.
I'm sure there is a simple setting somewhere that I am missing but I just can't find it. If anyone has an idea, I would truly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
