Can't hear midi in real time.

Hi, I just purchased the Oxygen 25 midi keyboard and I'm having a difficult time trying to hear what is being played through my speakers (through Magix Music Maker 2013). I'm running the software through my new Windows 8 HP laptop. In MMM13 I can play the midi keyboard and it records it when I press record in the software but I can't hear what is being played in real time. Is there settings I should be aware of? The issue shouldn't be the sound card, or maybe it is, but my cpu recognizes the device and says it is working properly. My input is Oxygen 25 and my output is Microsoft GS waveable synth... driver selection is direct sound and audio playback setting is set to my speakers (headphones). Please help! I am so anxious to record some music and this is becoming a bit frustraiting. Thanks.

I'm not familiar with that particular piece of software but any MIDI sequencer should be able to play and record from a controller simultaneously just fine.

Take a look at the software's global settings as well as the individual track settings for each track as you work on it.

The input should be set to the Oxygen and the output should be set to the synth plugin you are using.

Also I have a piece of general advice about Oxygen controllers in general. I own an Oxygen 49 and it skips notes like nobody's business unless I turn off velocity sensitivity. Otherwise I have problems with lag and skipped notes.

Could also be a latency issue. You didn't mention how you're getting the MIDI data from the controller to the computer, and there are a few other potential problems as well. Which drivers are you using on the laptop, etc. Don't know about MM13; but there may also be a latency 'adjustment' in the software (some have it, some don't).

:cool:

The Oxygen Controllers are USB only interface and they are class compliant devices meaning that they don't need drivers in Windows.

I'm pretty sure his problem is with the output settings in his DAW software.
