Help...No no midi input signal

Postby CarworldHQ » Sat Jan 28, 2006 3:47 pm

Hi all and thank you for reading this post. I am a newby to Sonar5. I am using a computer which

has on board sound which was all working fine. I then aquired my sonar5 software, this all

installed ok. Sample files played well. My next step was to connect my Yamaha PSR510 keyboard to

the computer and use this as a controller plugged the keyboard end in ok. but when I went to plug

the other end into the games midi port on the computer I soon realised that there was no socket

on the computer. The reason this was not present is because the Asus Mother board I am using

requires that this socket/module be purchase seperately. I got in touch with Asus UK to purchase

this component. As luck would have it the factory in the uk was damaged by a serious fire in

Hemel Hemstead and I would not be able to get the part I required at this time. My next option

was to purchase a sound card with a midi port on it. This I did, and thats when the fun and

games start.

After installation of the sound card all seemed well until I tried to use my keyboard as a

controller. The first problem I had was that Sonar5 could not see any input device. To solve this

issue I disabled the midi/gameport on the sound card and enabled the midi/game port in the bios.

After a re-boot The input device is now showing as MPU401. My final problem which I am having

difficuly with is that even though the computer can see the input device I still cannot get the

my keyboard (controller) to communicate with the computer. The activity light does not

illuminate on the input side.......only the output.....any help would be most appreciated.
