I am using Windows 7 and Audacity 1.3 Beta. I have a Yamaha SY77. I just bought a USB Midi cable which converts a pc to Midi keyboard. Here is the product description and the picture:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ef=oss_product
I followed the instruction that came with the cable package:connecting the "in" of the cable to the "OUT" of the SYNTH, and the "out" of the cable to the "IN" of the SYNTH. It says that the driver would automatically makes everything work.
When I connected the USB to the computer, the computer recognized that a new device was installed. When everything was connected and in place, the light of the USB-MIDI CONVERTER was lid. The Midi IN light is lid, but not midi out light. I checked the preference in the software (Audacity) under device tab. Everything looks fine, except the recording device. Under the recording device, it says "no recording device is found." That IS the problem. When the device cannot be found, it just would not do anything.
I checked the Sound in control Panel. I wanted to add a new device to the sound recording device, but there is no option for me to add. The only device present is the microphone device.
Please advise. thank you.
