Default USB MIDI CONTROLLER NOT WORKING

I have recently purchased an Edirol PCR-30 and am trying to use it with my 24mix plus system. I have a G4 533 with 1GB RAM. I can get OMS to see the keyboard no problem and I have used the PCR OMS patch that edirol offers. I have enabled the inputs in ProTools but can't get any signal in. This is so frustrating... cause I bought a Midiman OXYGEN 8 first... same problem... then I took it back, thinking it was defective, and purchased this edirol... same deal... so I know it must be something in my system. I called Edirol and they said everything was setup correctly but they didn't know much about protools so they could not help.

I'm not sure what else to check... I deleted my PT and Digisetup pref's as well to see if that works... didn't help.

Any thoughts?? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

Did you select the controller under the -midi menu- in -input devices-?

I have the PCR-50 and I have no problems either as an input device or hui emulation. All my synths are virtual. I enabled midi thru and armed the midi track, routing the midi output to a virtual synth. Play keyboard, hear noise.

Yepp, I enabled the inputs in the MIDI menu. Strange, I know. I have a similar setup at work... I configured it the same way and no problems. I'm almost it's unique to my home system... but I have no clue what's wrong. I also tried re-installing OMS... same problems.

Got confirmation here also that the keyboard works fine. The only issue is related to SysEx which is another bag of tricks. This is probably redundant but, check again your OMS setup and see if OMS is receiving midi from your piece. Go to "Studio" menu and select "Test Studio" (command + T), your mouse arrow will change to an eighth note press the keys on your controller and use should hear "midi received" from your computer speaker. if this doesn't work, choose "MIDI Cards & Interfaces" from the "Studio" menu and select the "Update Setup" from the pop up dialog box, follow thru the set up and that should detect any new software or hardware. If you don't get any of this to work in OMS it's time to call someone, if you do get it to work in OMS it's time to move on to the PT MIDI menu. In Pro Tools go and select "Input Devices" from the "MIDI" drop down menu, verify that your controller has a check mark, if not check it, then select "OK" to exit from that window. Return to the "MIDI" drop down menu and make sure that "MIDI Thru" is checked. This should have you triggering any midi device in your oms set up via PT.

Hope this helps, good luck

Cool, after turning on MIDI thru it worked... Also, Edirol had me do some things on the keyboard itself... though I've forgotton the steps now... but they are very nice if anyone needs to call 'em.

Thanks to everyone for your help!
