    Hi,

    I think i haven't written properly what was my problem, so I'll try again.

    What i need is infromation about what the pins on the miniDIN 6 port on
    the card are for (which is for ground and which are for in/out signals)

    I couldn't find that kind of information in any audio store nearby.



    Regards, Adam K.

I'm quite confident it goes like this (probed it recently in case I lose it) :

PS/2 pin 1 - MIDI IN pin 2 (ground)
PS/2 pin 3 - MIDI IN pin 4 (signal)
PS/2 pin 2 - MIDI OUT pin 2 (ground)
PS/2 pin 4 - MIDI OUT pin 4 (signal)

Do not get MIDI signal via EDIROL UA25




Midi is data only, there is no actual sound to the midi tracks themselves. They need to be assigned to either a software synth or an external synth to actually make the sounds you want to hear.

For instance if you load a demo of a midi sequance you will need to add a software synth such as the TTS-1 or Roland sound canvas which are general midi compatable and will play the instruments sounds assigned to the demo's midi channels. Use the Synth Rack feature in Sonar to open one of them. Then you will need to assign the output of each of the midi tracks to that particular synth and you will get sound. Make sure to assing the synth's audio track to you UA-25 as its audio output.

I would suggest reading in the manual and following the tutorials included in the manual to get yourself familier with how this is all done. spacer.gif

Sound module & mic (connected to a Tascam US-224) not working


I may be able to help.  I am a longtime Mac and Tascam control surface user.  I am currently running a MacBook Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz running OS 10.5.6 with a Tascam FW-1884 audio interface/mixer/control surface connected.

Setup is fairly easy in the Mac OS.  Here are the steps I'd follow:

NOTE: Before beginning the following process make sure that ALL of your MIDI gear is connected.

- Tascam connected to USB port of computer
- MIDI Keyboard "OUT" connected to Tascam "IN"
- Roland "IN" connected to Tascam "OUT"

1) Open your "Applications" folder.
2) Open the "Utilities" folder.
3) Double-click on "Audio MIDI Setup."
4) At the top of the window select "MIDI Devices"
5) In the pull-down menu on the left select "New Configuration."
6) Title your configuration and press "OK"
7) If your gear has been detected automatically their names and icons should appear in the main window.  If so, skip down to step 12
8) Click on the "Add Device" button
9) Double-click on the "new external device" button that has now been created.
10) Select your device's manufacturer and model (i.e. Roland, JV-1010).
11) Adjust any other settings appropriate to your setup.

[In the main window there should be a Tascam US-224 button.  On it there should be one pair of arrows that indicate the MIDI In and MIDI Out ports of the device.]

12) Click (and hold) on the MIDI Out arrow of the US-224 button.
13) Drag the "cord" and attach it to the MIDI In of the Roland JV-1010 button.
13) Click (and hold) on the MIDI In arrow of the US-224 button.
14) Drag the "cord" and attach it to the MIDI Out of the "keyboard" button.

This should get you setup from a Mac OS/Device routing perspective.  For the appropriate US-224 Control Panel settings refer to the User Manual.

Tascam 144 sony acid pro 6 no sound from midi track


It sounds like you may be confused on what the MIDI part actually does. MIDI records your performance, not your sound. Then you assign and play back the recorded performance to either a virtual instrument (in which case you should here sound from your computer) or to a real physical MIDI capable instrument (in which case you would here the sound coming from that real instrument instead of the computer).
The ends of the MIDI cables themselves are identical, not IN or OUT.

No midi sound


In sonar go to the options menu and select: Audio -->advance. and from the list select the "Asio" driver, then you'll have a new midi output (synthe sw...) select it to have a sound while playing MIDI files.

Audiophile USB / OSx 10.4.10 / Audio is fine but Midi not appearing anywhere


Ok her's wuz up! It's the install **** that this driver's been tackling with since the beginning! (This somewhat goes for the oSX to i gues =) Anyway, so...

1. Uninstall the whole thing! Also run regedit (XP,Vista?) and delete everything named "Audiophile" (installed audio apps mostly recognices to the new drivers once installed so don't worry).

2. Then reboot and run the new drivers - and remember that old ****, click "continue anyway" at all THREE times. 

3. Then reboot again (do NOT turn the card on yet). I turned it on after shortly after BIOS screen and that was almost too early! Anyway, then follow the "found new harware" routine - TWO times - one for SOUND and one for MIDI. 

This might seem basic and all but, hey... with theese kind of cards.. sheeesh!. And when ARE they going to get there "protocal" aproved?! Next OS?!
