Question about Edirol UA-25 External Sound System
My midi input worked from day one, but now all of a sudden it doesn't. I tried everything. MAC - Cubase - Please help. Cubase pics up the card's audio inputs , but not any midi as it used to.
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.

This is the system requirements of your midi. First check out u fulfill or not?
The current setup is to use USB to connect the
Edirol UA-25 to the computer and 2 midi cables to connect the Edirol
UA-25 to the PCR M30. When using a VST instrument I have selected the VST instrument as the
output and Edirol UA-25 MIDI IN as the Input. So in theory this
should work. The Edirol UA-25 is definitely working and having troubleshooted I can
actually hear Midi through it ie using headphones connected to the
UA-25 device. But the Edirol UA-25 does not appear to be receiving
any signals from the PCR-M30 keyboard. Without the Midi cables I
would as you say select the PCR as the input and again the VST
instrument as the output but the reason I am using the MIDI cables is
so that I can record MIDI via the keyboard through the Edirol.
Possibly there is an issue with the keyboard or the cables are faulty
etc. From what you have said it sounds as if I have ctually selected
the correct ports (and there are n't that many other options - all of
which I did try as well just in case) so I am going to need to
troubleshoot this to find out where the fault lies. I think the
logical thing for me to do is to find out whether the keyboard works
if use the PCR as the input as opposed to Edirol MIDI in.
I can't see any reason for two MIDI cables. Connect MIDI Out of the
keyboard to MIDI In of the interface. Some people find it intuitive
to connect In to In. They are in error :-)
Check that your MIDI cables ARE MIDI cables, not audio cables. Same
plugs, different wiring. Or connect the keyboard using its USB option
