Midi Controller Stopped Working

Post by dgiven » Sun Mar 22, 2020 9:54 am

My midi controller was working just fine in Mixcraft 9 Pro Studio and one day decided to stop. I'm using the Alesis QX25 and their website says it doesn't require a driver. I've rebooted, unplugged, deactivated in device manager and reactivated, and disconnected all other midi devices with no luck. It does recognize a change in the number of midi devices when I unplug it or reconnect it. The weird thing is that it still works fine in Mixcraft 8 but it doesn't show any incoming midi in Mixcraft 9. Does anyone have any ideas about what's going on?

Try it in a brand new, empty project with Acoustic Piano as the virtual instrument.

If that doesn't work, go into Mixcraft 8's sound device preferences and see if they match your preference settings in Mixcraft 9.
