Superior Drummer no longer recognizes TD12 midi
Hi folks,

I'm on PT 9.0.5 on a 2011 i5 Macbook Pro. I use a TD12 to trigger SD2.2.3. Everything was working swimmingly until tonight. I suspect it's because I recently installed Lion (although I'm not 100% certain).

Basically, SD no longer seems to see the midi from the TD12. It's not a hardware issue from what I can make out. The TD12 is fine when I use it's now brain/sounds. I checked the midi cables (they're fine). My Digi 003 rack sees the midi signal (the green "midi in" light is illuminated). I can trigger SD using my Axiom keyboard.

Any ideas? I'm stumped. Maybe it's something obvious, but I've been working with this setup for 18 months & it's always been rock solid. The only recent change I can think of is the Lion upgrade - but maybe that's just coincidence? Is is possible Lion has messed up the internal midi files or something?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Is the TD brain showing in Setup>Midi>Midi Studio? If so, is it still assigned to the correct midi port?

No, the TD is not showing up in midi studio.
I created a new midi device. Selected Roland as manufacturer, but I could only see TD-10 as an option for device name - no other vDrums were listed (i.e. no TD12). I left device blank & connected the midi in/out cables on screen. Still no joy though

Finally figured it out... there were a couple of issues:
The 9.0.5 updater (I used this to update from 9.0.3) apparently removes midi drivers and device (003r) drivers that were present on the previously installed version of PT. Both of these drivers need to be updated separately. I ended up uninstalling PT & then used the "full install" version of 9.0.5 instead. I also updated the device & midi drivers separately.

Now everything is working again... TD, Superior etc. The only remaining glitch is that I can no longer open "midi studio"... when ever I try, it just freezes & then I get an error message that says "if you have recently installed new midi drivers, try removing then re-installing them". I did that, but it made no difference. So now, I have a working system, but if I need to change my midi settings I'm stuck. I also tried updating the TD firmware using updsmf, but that also freezes (I'm assuming because of some midi driver conflict somewhere).

Ah well, at least I can start playing drums & recording music again :)

Thanks for the update. Think I will avoid the 9.0.5 update for now:D
