Recognizes the midi interface but not the keyboard
I'm using a macbook pro with osx 10.5.5 and I tried to connect my korg sp-250 with a m-audio uno midi interface. I installed the driver and the computer recognizes the interface, but no signal gets to the computer. For ex: I open Sibelius (a music program) and the program recognizes the interface but doesn't receive any signal whe I play on the keyboard.

I need to know how it's all hooked up first (IE Korg midi out to Yamaha in, Yamaha thru or out to Chord, USB from chord to Acer.....etc etc. etc.) Also, see if the instruments can at least talk to each other. Post a reply here.
the latency is in the sound card. usually you can set the CPU cache to 512 in a program or synthesizer. Your Korg softwear may be able to ajust this if it is on your pc. Most PC have the sound card built into the mother board thereby not cutting the performance. 2. You will have to purchase a external sound card for your Audio and midi interface to get the least amount of latency. The PC cabinet with all it components has a lot of EMI (Electromagnetic interference) that cause some of the latency issues with these device. If you can live with 2ms latency which the human ear can't determine then you can render a acceptable audio and midi setup, The Ableton Live 8 series has a latency setting for the CPU in the program. Download the demo and see if you notice a difference.
unfortunately any pro tools application below version 7.4.2 is not compatible with leopard and I don't think you can use mbox 1 with the universal mac I may be wrong but I wanna say I tried a while back and even garageband wouldn't find it anymore but you can check for sure by going to the applications folder then open the utilities folder in there is an application called "Audio Midi Setup" and you can select the mbox in there if you see it but if not there is no patch or driver that I know of to get it working unless you upgrade pro tools which if you do upgrade I suggest getting mbox 2 and getting LE with it
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.
I had the same problem -- the following worked for me:
Go into your Audio MIDI Setup application -- there should be an item in the window called "IAC Driver." Double-click it and check the box that says "device is online." If everything else is connected/set up, this should fix the issue.
Your question is very confusing. Try rephrasing it. You should try drawing a diagram with this and uploading it to your question to better explain yourself. If you can't upload it (I know I can through the answer, but I'm not so sure about the question) you can e-mail it to me. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org , if not just put some more detail into the question and try rephrasing it. I'm not really sure about the details of your system.
ok..try this open control panel->click on sounds and audio devices...click on advanced button->If your midi volume control is shown..make sure it is not muted and the midi volume is high..If it is not shown..then click on options->properties ->tick the midi box and close the window..then adjust the MIDI volume..I hope this helps Regards, VJ
