Windows doesn't clearly identify multiple Midisport Anniv Ed devices
Text size [-] [+]

Since the MIDISPORT Anniversay Edition interfaces are class-compliant, they will work without the need to install additional drivers.  However, using MIDISPORT as a class-compliant device in Windows XP or Vista will only give you access to basic MIDI input and output features.  You must install the MIDISPORT drivers if you would like to access the more advanced features found within the interface.  Installing the drivers allows you to:

  1. Use MIDISPORT with more than one application at the same time (i.e., multi-client support)
  2. Send or receive long SysEx (system exclusive) messages
  3. Use multiple MIDISPORT interfaces and identify each interface via a clear device number and port naming system.

The latest drivers are available on our drivers/updates page.
