No sound via Midi-USB cable/organ Content to computer 16Gb RAM


Common USB-Midi cable attached to computer, Grand Orgue/MidiOx: no responses there.
Only a greet light when touching a key of the organ: no sounds, no visible signs of life on the screen. What can be the course?P.s.: the organ was positive tested on Midi by my organdealer.

Thanks for any solution.

Sorry if I misunderstand your problem completely, but a midi-cable only transmits midi-signals and no sound at all.
When your computer does not recognize ans midi signals make sure the cable does work (some interfaces have simply bad quality) and that it is connected correctly (midi-in in midi-out plug).

Connection = OK: out of organ to IN of midi cable. The cable was detected by my computer and drivers were installed: came with notation: "the apparatus is ready for use".
I assume the midi-USB = ok, brandnew, one of the most common hits on Google (Wunderland/Amazon), green light is burning on touching a key of the organ. As far as I am instructed: on pressing a key of the organ, a key on GO should give: a sign of .. live, respons. (Sound comes when more parameters are defined??)This does not happen.

Thanks for your respons.

Hi, I think I know that problem. It is about the electronics inside some chinese cables, optocoupler is missing, a cheaper direct coupling from keyboard to PC is installed instead. Direct coupling should also work, but ground lead emerges to din connector for a different pin. The solution is to make an strap in the male din connector of cable, if you need a more precise information please let me know to my mail and a will send you a drawing rmanzanog@gmail.com

For rmanzanog:

Cannot find your name so quick in the discussion about my topic, sorry. It was some weeks ago already that I .. had the problem. Indeed, solved, by accident, don'nt know why, but everything works, had some help from SourceForge/Midiviewer also. Unknowing of the matter also counts.

Thanks for your reply,

Jitske/fieldbicycle.
