As soon as I plug in/switch on my midi keyboard, the USB LED flashes
I recently purchased the Omega and am pretty new to home recording. I connected my midi keyboard up to it a few days ago and everything worked fine. The last few days, I've had problems. Every time I connect the midi keyboard, the USB LED starts to flash on the Omega and nothing works. I don't know why it's suddenly happening as I'm sure I've done verything exactly the same as the day it all worked.
I've tried re-setting the Omega and restarting PC, etc. I've also Googled this problem, checked relevant forums and not found any solutions anywhere online.
if anyone knows the answer, please explain in simple terms as I am new to this and not very technical. Thanks a lot!

your problem is very simple. please check the didi key board seriel pin.some time the seriel pin is broken. your goole problem is network problem.please check the network connectivity. otherwise operating system problem.sometimes while your installing the operating system some files missing. so first check your computer network and serial port.
thanks & records

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.
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.
I have a Sterling st-51 condenser mic and purchased a Behringer xenyx 1002b mixer. Similar problem, dynamic mics work in low impedence with or without phantom pwr on. My Washburn acoustic bass with preamp in line input section. So I tried it on my Omega Lexicon interface. The condenser mic and everything else works on the Omega. This unit has a wall wart ( your Lambda is USB powered). I checked the voltages with a meter and found 23 volts from the mixer and 48 volts from the Omega. Further, I have two Shure SM-82 line mics which work on the mixer with the inputs turned all the way down but do not work on the Omega nor on my Spirit SX mixer which has 48 volts phantom power. The SM-82s are old line mics that have a 9.6 volt battery in the sleeve. They overload badly in all but the 1002B mixer. Their voltage should run btwn the 9.6 battery or a 22 volt phantom power.
Check your Lambda voltage, It could be way less than needed by the st-51. I will check with a friend who has the Lambda and check its voltage. Bet it is too low.
Again, My St-51 and 1002B mixer combo barely works at 23volts, the Mic gain is all the way up as is the channel slider and the main output slider. I cant get any reading on my led meters, occasional bump on the first light, no possible way to clip the input or the output and have to turn the high eq off and the mid way back due to hiss noise. Hope this helps,couldn't find minimum voltages on the ST-51 as yet.
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.
You said the magic phrase premiume HOME computer...
and the key word VISTA.
I've heard of VISTA pro running this but the home version is really not that robust for the type of gear you have there.
vista just has to many bugs.
go back to xp pro sp2 for good results.
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.
