That seems to be in the midi time sync functions. In cakewalk under options find the midi settings and choose midi device. All of you clock and sync settings should be there. Also I think under the audio menu there are settings for folders and I think a tab for sync is there as well. I use Sonar, which is an upgrade of cakewalk but used cakewalk for a long time. I have it on another computer and will look later to see if I am forgetting something or remembered it wrong and let you know.
Dont forget that the PCR50 is a Midi controller and as such has no "sound" of its own. You must have Midi compatible player or composer type software (like Reason, Cakewalk, Sonic, etc) to link up to the PCR50 to get any sound.
In Device Manager (I am assuming you are using Windows XP) you will find your MIDI devices under Sound, Video and Game controllers. It is possible that the MIDI port has not been enabled in BIOS, I have had some PCs where this had to be done first. If Fruity Loops doesn't give you any available MIDI port to use it does not sound as though the PC knows it's there or has installed the driver properly. Start in Device Manager - if there's no MIDI port there or it's not working for some reason you'll have to fix that first.
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).
Think of MIDI like the old time player pianos where you put a roll into it and the punches on the paper roll told the piano what notes to play. MIDI is a way for computers and musical instruments to communicate what is being played. When you plug your keyboard into your computer and enable it in Cakewalk, then Cakewalk records what notes you are playing on your keyboard (makes a piano roll file). Then when you tell Cakewalk to play this file back it communicates to your keyboard and says play these notes just like a person was sitting there playing these notes. The distinction here is you are recording and playing back your performance (which keys you pressed, how hard you struck the keys, how long you held the keys for sustain, etc...). No sound is actually being recorded, just the PERFORMANCE. When you play it back, the keyboard regenerates the sounds on the fly just as if you were actually sitting there performing the music again. Same thing applies to other MIDI enabled instruments (drums, guitar, saxaphone, etc...). This opens up all kinds of possibilities, you can redirect the recorded MIDI file to a completely different sound or instrument. Example... you record MIDI of you playing piano song, then you have Cakewalk play this MIDI back to your keyboard but you change the sound on your keyboard to guitar, it will play the same song, but now you will hear guitar instead of piano. Get it?
Can I work on your computer from my end? If you want to do this you can e-mail me at email@example.com If you don't just tell me and I will try to walk you through the steps of solveing your problem.
My dear friend I also have the same problem (i am using an us-122) but i still have the same problem). I am searching and searching for days and nights to solve this. If you find any solution please send me an e-mail on: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you very much.
Certain early models of the Sound Blaster
cannot do both MIDI input and wave (audio) output at the same time. Thus,
if you've selected "Creative Labs" as a MIDI In device in Cakewalk’s
Options | MIDI Devices dialog, wave audio output won't work. Note that
MIDI output will work fine along with wave audio output: you can select
Creative Labs from the list of MIDI Out devices. The problem occurs only
when you've selected the Creative Labs MIDI In device.
