Hi, it’s been quite a while since I used my midi keyboard with Dorcio (I think last time was 3.5) and today I noticed it’s no longer recognizing my midi inputs. I am seeing a “” marker at the end of my midi input name, not sure if that means something special as not all midi ports have it.
Using Dorcio 4.3.11 - any help is greatly appreciated!
Looks like you are on Mac, right?
If so, please go to /Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/Dorico 4 AudioEngine.
In there is a file called PortSetup.xml.
Stop Dorico, rename that xml file to something else, e.g. _PortSetup.xml and start Dorico again.
Any better ?
(If on Win, that same file lives under %appdata%\Steinberg\Dorico 4 AudioEngine)
Thank you @Ulf . I’m on Windows. Unfortunately, this didn’t resolve the issue. I renamed the file and restarted with no effect. I even restarted my computer and saw a new Port Setup.xml file created. Still the input remains selected and with a “” annotation and doesn’t pick up anything on that port. I verified that midi (and midi through) is enabled.
I double-checked the port itself by:
Turning off all midi inputs inside Kontakt
Turning on the “LoopMIDI Dorico” port inside Kontakt
Verifying that Kontakt receives midi data [success!]
So, the virtual port is working fine in Kontakt, not sure what is going on with Dorico or why the port is annotated in Dorico. (Side note, some other ports I don’t use are also annotated in Dorico, including my midi controller which has a “” annotation.) I believe this started in Dorico 4, I’ve been using my computer keyboard for a long time and just now tried the midi controller to find it’s not working.
I’m glad you’ve solved your problem yourself. I don’t know that LoopMIDI system, so can’t say something about it, only that to my knowledge no one else has ever brought forward this issue here in the forum. Let us know should the problem return, then we can have a deeper look.
