Midi In can't record in SONAR v1.02

Postby ramandika » Fri Jan 09, 2004 11:21 am


I have problem with SONAR v 1.02, Windows 2000, Keyboard Korg PA80,
SOundcard SoundBlaster Live! Processor P III.

I always can't record my MIDI thru midi port. Audio In Is OK.
And I has tried the advise from Troubleshooter ( Sonar Help Screen)
But it still can't work. Every time I switch On my keyboard, the MIDI IN/OUT icon always flash although I had not play the key board

What's wrong with my setting / hardware ?

Some SoundBlaster cards share an irq with your paralell port (midi interface) Check this first.

You have your midi plugs connected the right way round, In to out and out to in.

Even though you have the live card installed make sure that the gameport is installed and enabled.

As a suggestion I would look round for an upgrade to at least ver 1.3 because 1.0 was as buggy as hell.

It almost sounds like you don't have your input /outputs correctly set in your track (given the music is playing through your keyboard). What kind of midi interface are you using? You can't just plug-in the keyboard and have it work (hopefully you know this). And I have to totally agree with andychap ramandika -UPGRADE!!!
