I’ve had all sorts of trouble surrounding midi, and I was hoping someone might help me clear it up.
Mac mini server edition
2.66 GHz Intel Core duo
Midi sport Uno
M-audio mobile pre-USB
Microkorg, prophet 08, Alesis HR-17
-So first of all, my goal is to record midi notes into cubase for quantizing, etc, and be able to sequence my external instruments (synths, drum machines) that way.
-I realize my OS is not optimal for cubase, but would that have anything to do with it?
-I have had midi functioning before, but I couldn’t explain to you how, because I don’t remember doing anything differently. (signals seem to go on and off)
Usually I CAN get the notes recorded into cubase, where I have trouble is triggering my synths/machines using the cubase midi (though I’ve had this work before also…)
I have un-installed and reinstalled the M-audio Uno drivers, and verified that the UNO shows up in Audio midi setup.
I have made sure my synths/machines are on the same midi channel as set in the cubase midi channel.
My thinking is that either this is a routing issue in Cubase, or a finicky midi cord.
For instance, I have just now recorded a midi track into cubase, as well as set up an audio track to hear it’s playback (triggering my prophet). Though I see midi in and out lights blinking, I’m not getting any sound from the synth.
My question: is there anything I might be missing (e.g. preferences in cubase, etc)? Any suggestions about how I might move forward?
