Since I switched to Windows 7/64 bits version Prof. I have some trouble with this "machine". The new version si only USB driven. This device is recognized by Sonar and Notion, but "doing" the modwheel gives no info on the tracks.
Some days ago I managed to get it working after reinstallation of the drivers, but somehow Windows 7 replaces this by it own driver everytime.
I searched M-Audio site for new drivers under Windows 7, but there aren't as far as I've seen. How to solve this.... it is annoying, because I bought this little keyboard not so long ago and it is easier to handle than that huge pianokeyboard (which is MIDI driven and works always).
Should I go for some USB to MIDI converter (cable)?
I use an Oxygen 8 to give my other keyboard a mod wheel and a pitch wheel. I am still using XP however.
M-Audio used to be THE place for MIDI /Audio cards but they never supported Windows Media Center edition with drivers of any sort and their driver development has been notoriously slow.
Please, somebody, if I'm wrong let me know.
I wish I WISH I could use an M-Audio card in my machine -they're great. But with my windows edition - too bad. Now I'm switching to Windows 7 and (as far as I know) they have not released drivers for it yet. I could be wrong but I got frustrated with what was such a great company that just dug in its heels and didnt support my OS (Windows XP Media Center Edition). So I gambled with a legacy driver for my MIDI interface from them which is a MIDISPORT 2x2 and it seems to work fine.
I use the MIDI interface from the Oxygen 8 because the USB had high latency and I could never get it right. MIDI works fine.
Hope this helped.
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
