Hello! my first post, gratz myself.
I’m have a Casio WK-1800 keyboard/synthesizer that I have connected to my M-Audio OZONE, MIDI-IN/MIDI-OUT and MIDI-OUT/MIDI-IN.
The M-Audio OZONE is installed, and connected via usb (both ends of the cable) to my computer.
When I open Create an Instrument track (Halion Sonic) in Cubase, and Halion pops up I can press the keys of the OZONE, and i get a signal, and all the sound i want. I can also controll 8 different parameters using the knobs on the OZONE.
BUT! Nothing happens when i press anything on the Casio keyboard. I have the instructions for my keyboard in pdf format and figured out that i need to set LOCAL (in the wk-1800’s settings on the keyboard itself, not on my computer) to OFF.
This will make the wk-1800 send midi signals without making a sound, only making a sound once the signal comes back from cubase, as i understand it. But I can’t seem to get the signal to travel all the way from the MIDI-OUT port on the wk-1800, into the MIDI-IN port of the OZONE, through the “USB-out” (there is no “in” and “out”, i know, just felt like calling it that) on the OZONE and in to my computer, Into CUBASE 6.
Now I’m wondering what I am doing wrong.
Am I missing something? should the signal go from the midi-out on the ozone through a separate Midi-USB cable and into my computer (there-by connecting my ozone to two different usb-ports on my pc, kind-of )
In that case I’ll buy a cable and try and figure it out from there.
But is there something else I’m missing?
I appreciate any help I can get, and I also appreciate people ROFLing after reading this “statement of absolute cluelessness”.
