I have a Roland PC-200 mkII midi controller connected to the PC via a MIDI to USB converter. The system claims to recognise it, and sets up a USB2.0-MIDI device with two hardware items: USB Composite Device and USB2.0-MIDI (sound, video and game controllers).
The keyboard is recognised - and sends MIDI signals. However, it will only send one at a time now, meaning it will only play single notes rather than chords. This is independent of whatever programme runs with it, indicating that it's a problem between the keyboard and Windows 7. The keyboard worked properly on Vista32 and previously on XP.
My mobo will not accept a direct MIDI (game port) connection, so I have no choice but to use the converter.
I have a Yamaha YPT-300 model keyboard that I am attempting to hook up to my Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit machine via a MIDI-to-USB cable. (The cable came with this eMedia USB MIDI Keyboard Interface Kit.) The drivers for the USB/MIDI cable installed without issue, but my system does not appear to recognize the Yamaha keyboard. I attempted to install the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver, but it raises an error. ("Error 25001. No device is connected. Connect a device, and try again.") The MIDI/USB cable has two lights that blink when everything's working properly; one of the lights is blinking, the other is not. The light that isn't blinking appears to be related to the plug for the MIDI IN jack on the keyboard, if that helps. Some of the simpler stuff ... I've got the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT cables plugged into the right jacks on the keyboard. (i.e., the MIDI IN plug goes to MIDI OUT jack, and vice versa -- it makes sense when you think about it.) The cables are not loose. I've googled all around for an answer, but I've found nothing but dozens of topics with no solutions or topics addressing something else altogether. And yes, I have tried turning it off and on again.
I am considering getting rid of my CME-UF5 Midi keyboard since there is no possibility of running it under Windows 7 and purchasing something new. Although I did like the quality and weight of the keys with CME vs M-Audio, I suspect M-Audio would have much better driver support and customer support for future updates, CME was certainly lacking in this department considering they didn't even provide a Vista driver for this damn thing. I browsed through forums and it seems that someone had created their own Vista driver for it by modyfing the XP one while others claimed that due to the hardware inside this keyboard, there would be no way to run it outside of an 32bit XP environment.
I've been in contact with MS Support, about that in the Windows 7 Sound panel there is no longer the ability to change MIDI Port from the internal GS Wavetable synth, and got confirmed that they've removed this, both for Vista and Windows 7"The ability to choose a different hardware or software MIDI synthesizer other than the default Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth has been removed from the user interface for audio configuration in Windows Vista/Windows 7. A different output MIDI synth or output device port can be selected only by editing the registry".I really want to select the MPU-401 compatible MIDI Port, so I can make use of my old Roland MT-32 and the old Sierra games through DOS-Box
I'm having problems getting my Usb MIDI to work in my music software. It used to work, but one day it just magically stopped working. I was about to make a dumb mistake and buy a new $60 Usb MIDI cable, but then I checked in device manager and I noticed that Windows WAS recognizing the Usb MIDI cable. It even said "This device is working properly." The MIDI Input light on the cable blinks when I press the keyboard's(piano) keys when I first plug it in, then stops after a while. It's supposed to be plug-n-play. When I first got it, no driver download was needed. I plugged it in, and it worked. I was thinking it may need a driver update? Or maybe a new driver? [code]
I've been having a major problem with for over several months. I've recently started to make music and I'm interested in using some of the MIDI capabilities on several of the instruments I have, mainly drum machines and synthesizers. The problem is Windows 7 is not detecting these MIDI to USB interface devices and instruments I have.I've tried using three interface devices so far with no luck what-so-ever. I've tried different two types of MIDI to USB cables, these are generally small, and they both work because I tested them on my friends Macbook and they were 100% functional.So, I decided maybe I should get a better piece of recording equipment, thinking there would be better platform support, so I purchased a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB, low and behold, I had the same problem!The MIDI to USB cables and the Focusrite interface detect the MIDI IN coming from the MIDI OUT port of the instrument, however Windows is not reading the converted MIDI information running through the USB cable into the computer.Here's a list of the solutions I've tried.Updating my chipset drivers. Uninstalling and re-installing chipset drivers. Un-installing and re-installing my sound drivers. Using the latest USB drivers (and even beta drivers) and utilities provided by the interface products. Trying different USB ports assuming it was a power issue. Uninstalling and re-installing the product drivers, rolling back to older drivers as well. Updating Windows. Tested under two different DAWS; CuBase and Sony ACID. I also tried different stand-alone soft-synths, they didn't detect the MIDI devices either. I've tried a few obscure MIDI drivers I dug up from a few places, but to no avail, I un-installed them. I've tried sacrificing 3 goats to Microsoft, that didn't work either. I'm convinced that this is a Windows / Hardware compatibility issue. I'm tempted to get a Mac product so I don't have to worry about this time pilfering fiasco. If anyone would like to take a stab at this I would be very grateful.Here's my system specs:
I tried to attach a M-audio 88es USB MIDI keyboard to my Dell Studio 1747 laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium x64). The keyboard is correctly identified on the USB, M-audio's drivers installed and this shows up in any MIDI software I start, but nothing can be transmitted from the keyboard to the computer.The usb keyboard works with other computers, and the Dell Studio sound system can play MIDI files. To make sure I alternated to an external Creative XFi soundblaster audio unit, which should have all MIDI capabilities, but again no sound from the keyboard (actually, a field in the recording software would show up if MIDI instructions were received).
I want to hook up a MIDI keyboard to my computer so I can take computer-based playing lessons.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. I have a generic MIDI-USB cable. I plug it in, Windows recognizes it, and installs a driver. I plug the MIDI In cable into the Out socket of a Yamaha PSR260 keyboard, and Out into In, and power on the keyboard. On the MIDI-USB cable, the red power light is on, and the In LED is flashing. So far, so good, but now I'm having troubles.
I think that I need to install a Yamaha MIDI driver in order for Windows to recognize my device. I downloaded the UM312x64 package, but when I run setup.exe, it gives me "Error 25001. No device is connected."
I run my Dell XPS 17 in live performance using multiple midi devices. I had a problem of the midi ports available being filled do to doubled up instances and had to go into the registry to clean out the copied instances.I have done that before; but, this time I accidentally deleted the primary midi driver (midi REG_SZ wdmaud.drv)Where can I find this driver to replace the one deleted?
I created some Christmas cards with music thru embedded midi files and could view and hear everything until today. Now when I try to viiew one of them, or go to any site that uses WMP for midis, I get an error message that IE has stopped working and will notify me of a solution. If I remove the midi file from the page, then the page functions properly. I went to my "Manage Add-Ons" and WMP is enabled. What else can I do?
I found this site while browsing on my iPod. Now why would I have to use my iPod when I have a beautiful new computer sitting in front of me? Well as the title says. I have no controllers, ergo, no Internet.I bought it second hand, absolutely nothing wrong with it, I think he just might of went too far when he wiped it before giving it to me.So, I came here hoping you guys could rescue me... I'm looking for the driver(s) I need, and I'm also wondering how I can manage to download them to my com if it's not online. I have;System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., LtdSystem Model: H55M-S2OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (6.1 build 7600)Processor: Intel Core i3 CPU 540 @ 3.07ghz (4 CPUs)BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PGg that's all good, I read it all of my DxDiag.
A Compaq Presario CQ62 Laptop running windows 7. I accidentally spilled wine on it and the keyboard no longer worked.I purchased a Microsoft wired desktop 600, but it has no function keys. On the original keyboard I used Fn E12 to connect to a network, but with the new keyboard I can no longer connect to a network. There must be a workaround?
I installed windows 7 ultimate on my dell xps15, but can not connect to my wireless network and cannot connect to the internet through an Ethernet cable, i looked around in my devices and noticed these had a yellow exclamation point next to them:[CODE]ecause of this i am not able to use usb drives or connect to the internet in any way on that computer, i dont know what i need to get this fixed and since i cant connect to the internet i sadly cant just update them like i would like to
I have a J & W H61M-D3 (B3) motherboard with an Core i3 2100,4 gig DDr3 ram.Windows 7 professional 64 bit Im despritly looking for the drivers for pci simplecommunications controller and SM bus controller
my daughter pressed a couple of keys earlier and now my laptop keyboard isnt working properly. It is really strage because a few keys are working but not in thier usual function. My partner logged out so now i am sat at a login screen and cant key in a password. The on screen keyboard is behaving the same way which is very odd! Any suggestions? I have only had it 3 weeks and have had no problems it's been great. My mrs said she was trying to type in a website and windows kept popping up when she typed, and then she logged out.
So I just installed Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on my Sony Vaio VGN-FZ240E Laptop. Everything installed okay and worked just fine until I restarted it for the first time to update my touchpad drivers. After I restarted, my keyboard would not function and Sony provides no drivers for it on their website. Sony also makes it clear that they do not support a Windows 7 upgrade on my model(which is slightly ridiculous, but whatever...).
It's an Intel Core 2 duo, so I know it's 64-bit capable and everything WAS working the first time I installed it. I have no clue what to do, but my laptop keyboard is slightly useless, which poses a big problem, lol. If there is anyone out there with advice, I would greatly appreciate it!
What Keyboard do you like to use, do you have a favourite ?, I use a Logitech G15 on my main Computer and a Chicony KU 0418 on my second Computer, i use these two Computers the most and all in all i prefer the G15, so what do you use ?
Just upgraded my laptop (Samsung NPC300E4C) from windows 7 starter to windows 7 ultimate.But problem is that it cannot detect SM BUS CONTROLLER on windows device manager.
