Bought a used unit and I’m trying to determine if it is operational. Since I’ve never used one before, I’m not sure how to check it out.
I had trouble using it on Win 7 x64, even though I could see all the midi ports after the install … but I, of course, didn’t know if it was a driver or hardware problem.
I loaded it on my XP laptop and again it appeared to install showing me all the ports. I ran Midi Test 4.12 and it worked fine testing input 1 to output 1, input 2 to output 2, input 1 to output 2 with a midi cable connected.
But while I could trigger output from a controller connected to input 1 or 8 and through from each output port, tested one at a time, to my module … I couldn’t patch directly from, for example, input 3 to output 3 with controller in and module out.
Is this a limitation of the hardware or a defect?
Also, any selected output port of the midex8 in the Cubase inspector failed to send midi out through the unit to a connected sound module.
Shouldn’t, for example, if I select Midex8 output 3 in the inpector midi track output, that send midi to a module connected physically to Midex8 output 3 in the hardware via the USB connection?
I’d really appreciate a short answer to these two questions, since while I’m pretty sure the unit is not fully operational, my lack of knowledge of the hardware prevents me from making that conclusion.
