Question about Edirol UM-2EX External Sound System

1 Answer

Not even lighting up!

I got one of these for Christmas and at first when I connected the MIDI cables of my keyboard to my macbook pro, it was a bit fidgety but eventually connected. Now when I try, the usb light goes on for a second and then dies. I tried re-connecting everything, restarting my computer and even changed the midi cable, but nothing works. Everytime the computer restarts is the only time it actually recognizes it's there. What could be going on? Is it broken?

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.

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

Trouble with hooking mpc4k and korg triton pro to mbox


you will want your triton midi-in to go to your mpc midi-outB

then your mpc midi-inA to go to your mbox
your mpc midi-outA to go to your mbox

that should get you good for midi cables....


on the mpc, everytime you want to record a track using instruments from your mpc you will need to set a new track. on the main screen you would go to a new track (where Tr:01-Track-01 is) and change S:DRUM1 to S:MIDI, then to the right of that where it says OFF, turn that to 1A-Device01 ... you will have to make a new track for each instrument you use to help when bouncing tracks to mbox. for instance 1A-Device01 is the 1st track on your triton, 2A-Device02 is your second track and so on. make sure you also make a new track each time for where Tr:01-Track-01 is also for each instrument.

for the mbox i might be a little rusty on this so im going to post a quote from another site....

"in Pro Tools, go to setup - midi - midi studio. this is where you tell pro tools where your midi devices are connected. next, go to setup - midi - midi beat clock. you want to 'enable midi beat clock' and select the devices that are going to be receiving midi beat clock. all devices that you setup under midi studio should be showing. next, set pro tools' tempo for the session if you haven't already. This setup is based on Pro Tools being the MASTER device and the other device(s) SLAVE(S). Make sure that on your hardware/midi interface that the midi output is going to the midi input on the slave devices. On the mpc, press mode, then pad 9 and go to the sync tab. Choose "slave" under "sync in" and the port, 1 or 2, that your mpc will receive midi input. That's it!! When you start Pro Tools' sequencer, the mpc should start too at the same bar/beat location. I've tried slaving Pro Tools to the MPC1000 and Fantom Xa on diff. occasions but I could never get them in sync with Pro Tools. Tried diff. framerates and settings, but still, no luck. So I prefer using Pro Tools as the MASTER sending midi beat clock. Another thing, make sure that whatever you're tracking into Pro Tools doesn't change tempo during the song. If so, you'll have to edit tempo events in the tempo ruler. Hope this helps!!"

let me know if you need any more help.

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.

Using Keyboard for Mbox 1


You have to select the port in Pro Tools, but the computer has to recognise the MIDI port first.Does P.T. see that you have a MIDI port installed? Did you select an instrument plug in and map the keyboard as the controller for the plug in? You may need to use a utility like MIDI Yoke or MIDIOX to map the port if you are using Windows. You also have to have the drivers installed so that Windows recognises it as a MIDI port. If it is on a Mac you may have to use the Audio/Midi setup up utility to add the midi port.

Best of luck, Let me know if I can help further.
