I am using music maker version 126.96.36.199. I have my akai pro mpk mini 2 connected to the program and is being recognized but there is no real time playback as im playing. i have to record the midi and then play it back that is the only way for me to hear.... please help me.
Unfortunately, what you're experiencing is a side effect of the new Samplitude-based audio engine in Music Maker 2019 (27.x). When using Wave or DirectSound drivers, it doesn't allow for any monitoring of the MIDI input via the software instruments while in "stop" mode or while recording. Therefore, I can only recommend that you opt for using ASIO or WASAPI drivers in the program settings. Since these are also typically the only driver types that will allow for sufficiently low latency times, these should be your preferred choices in the context of any audio or MIDI recording workflow anyway.
