Playing of midi files

I have been using the PLayMusic program for several years but since installing XP my midi files are now produced by the windows media player but PLayMusic does not recognise them. How can I now convert the file to be acceptable by PlayMusic? Ken Thiis kenat44thiis@talktalk.net

    Many thanks for the info' Raphael. I now find that with one particular 'midi' file 'Play Music' tells me to convert it to number 1. After doing this I am then informed that the file is already in the required format but the program still will not open the file & keeps repeating that the file needs to be converted. I'll keep plugging away at the problem. Best wishes for 2009, Ken

Windows 7 gets stuck while playing windows media player files and slows down the system


With nothing running, I would click on Start ' Run ' Type CMD to get to a Command Prompt.

From the Command Prompt, type sfc /scannow

This will run the Windows Resource Checker Version 6.0 program and it will verify All Windows files on your system are correct and not corrupted. At the end of the scan, if you get a message that indicates it could Not fix the problem, re-run the above command again.

The Other option is to download a program called MediaInfo. Once you install this program, it will allow you to right-click a Media File (.mpg, avi, mov, etc) and check to see details about the media file. You can download this Free program from address: https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo

Another More useful program is something called the Sherlock Codec Detective. This Free program will tell you if your system has all of the required Codecs to play the file you are trying. You can download this Free program from address:

http://www.updatexp.com/sherlock-codec-detective.html


The File is located here:
http://s3.amazonaws.com/sherlock/sherlock.exe

***
So, after you install MediaInfo and see what the file contains in terms of Codecs, you use the Sherlock program to see if your system is missing any files that are required to play this. Anything missing will typically be shown in Reg under the column Video Codecs Installed (within Sherlock)

***

The "other" option is to download a Free program called the Media Player Codec Pack found at this address:

https://www.mediaplayercodecpack.com/

I would install either the Lite or Standard edition of the Codecs. I know some users will say Stay Away from Codecs, but since I found this Free program years ago, I can smoothly play DVD movies on my system. Please be aware that you should Backup your System before installing this Codec pack as it May over right a paid for Codec you might already have currently on your system.

This software is compatible with:
Microsoft Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2000, 2008, & 2003

Microsoft Windows Media Player 12, 11 & 10

Any player compatible with DirectShow

***

The Last option I have is to make sure your Windows 7 system is up to date with installs. Do a manual check for updates and look under
the Optional Updates. If I remember correctly there was several patches/fixes from Microsoft to fix issues with the Media Player as well.

Best of Luck!

Tip

Midi files - no sound. Windows XP


If other formats of audio files like MP3 - Wav etc. can be played on the computer, but not MIDI files:

1. Open the "Controle panel".
2. Open "Sounds".
3. Under Tab - Volume - activate "Advanced".
4. If the "SW Synth" is Muted - remove the "V" in the box.
5 If the volume is set to minimum - increase the Volume.

You should nov be able to play Midifiles - with sound.
(above routine is for Windows XP)

Enjoy your music !!!!!

Voyetra midi orchestrator


The only Voyetra Midi Orchestra Plus software I can know was written for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. Thus there are several reasons for it to be incompatible with Windows 8. First, it was a 16-bit software; the most common Windows 8 installs use a 64-bit OS. This means that the OS has undergone a number of major changes. The installers are completely different (format/way of talking to the OS). The DLLs that communicate between the software and the OS have also changed. The drivers for MIDI devices will be totally different in the modern OS.

The documentation for Voyetra Midi Orchestra is available here: http://www.turtlebeach.com/support/files/241/ . It is a discontinued product and no one at the company that owns it will be writing a new version of the code for Windows 8. I'm not sure this software will work in Windows 7 32-bit. You might be able to use the software in a compatibility mode from a virtual version of XP. For Windows 7 Pro, Virtual PC and the XP mode package are available as free downloads and can be used if your hardware allows. Windows 8 Pro has Hyper-V but requires a licensed version of any Windows OS that you want to use. For non-pro versions of Windows software, you would need to buy a Pro upgrade. The alternative is to obtain another Virtual machine software (VMWare, for example) and a licensed copy of XP or an older version of Windows. (OEM Windows 7 Pro licenses are still available from many computer hardware vendors.)

I hope this helps.

(Many 32-bit device drivers don't work under Windows 8; older software that didn't run under Windows 7 have similar problems.)

Ctk 810in not able to read or play midi files


If you connect to PC using USB interface, then use a commercial midi player - e.g Melody Assistant or Harmony assistant to play MIDI files to it.

Or else download "SMF convertor" to convert midi files and download compatible file to keyboard.

Best midi player?


You my find this midi player useful. It's provided at no cost and is rather simple-in-use, perfectly compatible with any Windows OS. Having it set up you'll always be able to listen to midi files.

I have a US 122 USB audio midi interface wich worked fine with windows 2000 now I have windows 7 and how can I make it work


Try the driver for Vista (including x64) from http://tascam.com/product/us-122//downloads/ . It's version 3.40. You may need to use the compatibility mode. Right click on the installer after you extract the contents of the .zip file. Then choose Properties and select the Compatibility tab. Check the box for Run this program in the compatibility mode and select an older OS version. Then click Apply and OK. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator.

The other options is to use the Tascam US-122 with a computer with an older OS or upgrade to a Win7 compatible model. If you try an older version of Windows, you can use a second computer, a dual boot machine or a virtual computer. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

I hope this helps.

My MIDI won't play back even when I play the file, no matter which program I use to play it. The computer I use is a Compaq Presario, I have Cakewalk Home Studio 2002 on it, and my sound card is SB X-FI...


The default MIDI setting of your PC may have been set for another MIDI device (for example, if Cakewalk Home Studio has been used with a MIDI compatible keyboard). Go to... Control Panel / Sounds and Audio Devices / Audio / MIDI music playback and change the setting back to your soundcard (and set as default if you prefer).

USB Midi Controller


the 'Add New Hardware Wizard' and force it to install the non-certified M-Audio drivers that were supposedly installed when running the M-Audio installer. (Skip internet search, and browse to M-Audio folder in Program files, it will eventually find them.) There are two M-Audio USB drivers that need to be 'forced' via New Hardware Wizard. But Windows thinks its drivers are a better match and even though 'device is working properly' it doesn't get recognized in your software. replaced them with the 2 USB ones from M-Audio, DAW finally recognized the keyboard. I even went through regedit to clean up all the M-Audio stuff so I could get a fresh install.

Good Luck you can do this /Have a great Sunday and a safe one.
