    Hi guys,

    I really need help here. I just bought a MIDI interface so I could use my old Roland Alpha-Jr keyboard in kontakt, as I can't afford a 61 or 88 keys controller right now. But as soon as I started using it, I noticed that notes would get stuck in kontakt whenever I played them too fast, as if I were pressing them indefinitely (check first link). I really don't know what it means, but in MIDI-OX, if I play a note too fast, the first port lights up instead of the fourth one, and I think that is the problem (check second link). What should I do? :/
    Sorry about my rusty English.

    Incidentally I had a similar problem with an old Oxygen 49 controller that was a total piece of crap.

    It too was skipping notes and hanging on some.

    The ultimate solution was to replace it with a better keyboard built by Alesis but in the interim the quick and dirty fix was to turn off Velocity sensitivity completely in order to be usable at all.

    If none of the other tricks I mentioned work this may be your last resort.

    Gary ;)

    Hi Gary, thanks for the response!!

    I have bought a cheap one, but I tested it with a friend's keyboard and it was ok. I tried turning off the velocity but I couldn't see any difference. PC was running only kontakt and MIDI-OX. I will try the MIDI latency reduction as you said. Thank you again!

    Unless you use task manager by hitting CTRL ALT DEL you have no idea how much crap is running in the background. This includes stuff like virus scanners, instant messengers and a whole bunch of TSR programs that run in the background performing windows housekeeping.

    Good luck with the latency reduction.

    Gary ;)
