Hi

How are you connecting the MIDI keyboard to the PC?

Have you installed drivers for the keyboard?

Is the keyboard recognised as a device in Device Manager?

do not put in the midi keyboard while you got magix running.

put in your midi keyboard THEN open magix.

it seems not to notice any midi devices while it is running assuming your trying to put in the midi device while magix is running.

After you close magix down or QUIT the programme then put in the midi your using then open magix again and it should know the device each time you open magix.

It will then automatically know the device from then on. (assuming) you do not take it out again. sometimes midi devices can be a real pain,and i use midi devices all the time at work.they can be annoying at times.

What happens when life breaks down?

When there is systemic contradiction?
My name symbolized all that was corrupt to society.
His name symbolized all that was pure.

And I was being hailed in the embrace of the man who was pure.

And these inviolable sanctities were preserved in those ten words.

And it is the de-sacralization of all of these that has put us in the mess that we find ourselves.

Isn't it true, alas it is much worse.

A person may end up believing in anything.

You know, if that human acceptance does so much for you and me.

Think of what it is when God himself puts his arms around you and says

"Welcome home".

What love is this?

It is God's love.

And no other love can be defined until that love has properly been understood.

 

 

 

If you can’t make the trip to my studio yourself, don’t worry I now have my brand new Online Mastering Service. Many of my customers are happy to leave me to it, and my wide-ranging experience ensures that you can trust me to make sound judgements on your behalf – no pun intended!

The services on offer include both attended and unattended (online) mastering, vinyl cutting, re-mastering, editing and restoration. For further details please message me here.

A gorgeous room full of lots of lovely equipment isn’t going to cut the mustard unless it’s in the hands of an experienced creative engineer who understands your music and how to get the results you’re looking for.

I personally have been mastering for over 14 years now.
i have remixed and engineered for alice deejay.

Please note home mastering and studio mastering are not the same. This is a misconception. the process is different,and while the sound of the polished track may seem the same to the NAKED EAR so to speak actually sound different to the trained ear.

THE TRACKS I WILL BE UPLOADING WILL BE ONLY "HOME" MASTERING. (fast process). music maker defaults are ok but not polished. 

most people are not concerned about the mastering there more comcerned about the FEEL.

i do not work for free so please do not sent me tracks to be mastered (for free). my time is not cheap.

====================================================================================                                 

there are some rules that are just plain idiotic. What are some examples of this behavior, why do people do it? Is it because (This is my assumption) they are afraid of the unknown? They are afraid of taking risk? Or is something that happens during the "nurturing" phase of life with overprotective parents. Maybe it's even a genetic thing.

 

IF I DO NOT LIKE THE MUSIC I WILL "NOT"  WORK WITH IT.

I ONLY EVER WORK WITH MUSIC I PERSONALLY ENJOY.
THIS WAY MY PROFESSIONAL APPROACH CAN BE MET TO VERY HIGH STANDARDS.

 

 

 

from alan.

peace.!

                                                                                                                                                         TENSHI.

The keyboard is an MD-992. I dont think it came with drivers and any information i have found online doesnt really help.  Its not viewable in the device manager either.  I have a MIDI to USB cable on it and the USB ligh tis on but the MIDI and middle green lights are not on.  I tested when the keyboard was on and tthen i turned on the program.  

Sorry it took me so long to respond. I dont always have a ton of time to get things out and test.

Hi

. . . . I have a MIDI to USB cable on it and the USB ligh tis on but the MIDI and middle green lights are not on . . . .

Do you mean one like this

 

Assuming everything is connected correctly, then the lack of green lights on the USB converter would indicate that the MIDI signal is not being received by the converter.

  1. Check the MIDI channel out is set to channel 1
     
  2. Have you tried swapping the IN and Out plugs?

. . . . Its not viewable in the device manager . . . .

Is there an unrecognised device in the USB section of Device Manager?  If a device is not visible in Device manager then it usually a driver issue - check the MIDI - USB converter manufacturers website for drivers.

Which version of Windows do you have?

John

Yeah it looked like that!  OK ill try setting the channel to 1.  What do you mean swapping the in and Out plugs? I got the USB to MIDI cable new about a month ago. Would they be faulty?

 

Ill check the cable manufacturers site too.  I have Windows 7, 64 bit

So I checked the Manufacter's site for both the cable and the keyboard. neither offer any drivers and I tried connecting the keyboard before turningon the program.  It still isn't regocnizing it.
