I suspect this problem is at the driver level but am hoping others have had problems with the Korg USB midi driver and might offer suggestions.
After all the normal install / uninstall / etc. issues, the Kronos, connected via USB, does not appear in the midi ports list. Given that I’m on Windows 7 I followed the path of the 10 midi devices limit debugging and have uninstalled all unused devices (show non present devices / show hidden, delete all greyed out devices, reboot, sacrifice chickens, etc.), leaving only my UR44 and the Kronos.
If I connect via midi cables through the UR44 everything’s fine but I also want to use the standalone Kronos editor, for which they strongly advise USB (5 hours versus 5 minutes).
In device manager, the Kronos drivers report working properly. The icons are not greyed out and indicate properly that they’re in use. The Korg control panel app is set to both (32 / 64 / both) as I’m on a 64 box but I believe the Editor (a customized MidiQuest app) is 32.
I’m only trying to see it via USB in Cubase and the standalone Kronos Editor. Their vst plugin is 32 bit only and thus a non-starter.
It doesn’t appear that I’m hitting the 10 midi devices limit, everything reports healthy, and yet the Kronos still doesn’t show up in either Cubase or the editor.
Does anyone who’s fought these battles in Windows 7 / 64 have any insights you might offer? Would appreciate any ideas so that Cubase can see the synth via USB.
