I'm having a problem on my windows machine of recording my MIDI keyboard. I'm currently using a Yamaha, and I have a midi connection from MIDI Output to USB. When I check system devices, my computer sees that I have a USB MIDI keyboard installed. I'm having problems actually recognizing and using the MIDI on a sequencer. I downloaded a piece of software called Anvil Studio's which handels MIDI connections.] It doesn't seem to be able to read it. Any suggestions in troubleshooting this. I haven't really ever worked with a MIDI before. As you can see, my computer is registering the device.
I have more info on the system. I've managed to get the output to work (now on Linux). Using LMMS I can play notes on my keyboard through my computer. The only thing that still isn't working now is input. My ports are currently
Port Client name Port name 14:0 Midi Through Midi Through Port-0 24:0 USB Midi USB Midi MIDI 1 128:1 LMMS Default preset 128:2 LMMS Default preset 128:4 LMMS Default preset 129:0 Client-129 qjackctl 130:0 FLUID Synth (24333) Synth input port (24333:0)
Right now the Output and Input are going through port 24:0 USB Midi on LMMS. I still can't figure out why it wont record.
