I've been using mixcraft for a while and I decided I wanted to use my MIDI keyboard in it (Gear4Music MK-906). So after connecting it up to my PC via USB, Mixcraft detected it (showed me the message saying there was a change in my number MIDI devices), and it is clearly in my MIDI devices list.
I'm sure my keyboard is turned on, I have selected an instrument (and tried various ones), but when I'm in musical typing, Mixcraft doesn't pick up my MIDI and won't play it. The only sound comes out of my actual keyboard. I even tried arming a virtual instrument track with my MIDI keyboard and tried recording but it still didn't.
I've also checked and my keyboard didn't come with drivers and there was none online. My Mixcraft audio setting is also WaveRT, and my track definitely isn't muted.
I'm using Windows 8 (if that makes a difference).
I'd appreciate help.
