Hi all and thank you for reading this post. I am a newby to Sonar5. I am using a computer which has on board sound which was all working fine. I then aquired my sonar5 software, this all installed ok. Sample files played well. My next step was to connect my Yamaha PSR510
keyboard to the computer and use this as a controller plugged the keyboard end in ok. but when I went to plug the other end into the games midi port on the computer I soon realised that there was no socket on the computer. The reason this was not present is because the Asus Mother board I am using requires that this socket/module be purchase seperately. I got in touch with Asus UK to purchase this component. As luck would have it the factory in the uk was damaged by a serious fire in Hemel Hemstead and I would not be able to get the part I required at this time. My next option was to purchase a sound card with a midi port on it. This I did, and thats when the fun and games start.
After installation of the sound card all seemed well until I tried to use my keyboard as a controller. The first problem I had was that Sonar5 could not see any input device. To solve this issue I disabled the midi/gameport on the sound card and enabled the midi/game port in the bios. After a re-boot The input device is now showing as MPU401. My final problem which I am having difficuly with is that even though the computer can see the input device I still cannot get the my keyboard (controller) to communicate with the computer. The activity light does not illuminate on the input side.......only the output.....any help would be most appreciated.
