Hi! I'm a new user trying to figure out Magix Music Maker. I first got my hands on it back in December 2017 when a few related items were on the Humblebundle, but I didn't really try it as I didn't have the MIDI equipment I wanted.
Fast forward to two days ago: I picked it back up, connected my old Yamaha PSR-550 via MIDI/USB to my computer, and without really any problems, I saw a response on the virtual keyboard in the program, and got sound from the Grand Piano VSTi I had selected. I'm pretty sure I was using Direct Sound at the time, and I could hear both MMM, the VSTi and everything else going on on my computer, such as Youtube, Spotify, games and Teamspeak. Perfect!
Today I noticed there was a big update to MMM, and decided to try it out. I'm not sure which version I had before (possibly an old one, since I don't think I've updated it since I downloaded it in January of 2018), but now I have version 184.108.40.206.
Now when I try to play on the keyboard, I get a response on the virtual keyboard, but I can't hear it. Went back into the Audio/MIDI settings and tried changing drivers - ASIO works, but I can't get sound with any of the other drivers. Using ASIO means I can't hear anything else, which is a big problem to me. I'd rather use Direct Sound and have a delay when playing around, and switch to ASIO only when I record.
Direct Sound worked just fine yesterday with the previous version I was using (wish I knew which), so I was wondering if there's a known change, or if there's anything I can do to play with the MIDI/VSTi while hearing everything else on my computer. I run most sounds through my Behringer Xenyx 1204 USB Mixer, and it would be great if I could have all sounds (MMM, comms, games etc.) go through the mixer without excluding it just to MMM. I use Windows 10. Thank you!
