How can I test if MIDI works? (MacOS 9)
Text size [-] [+]

Q: How can I check if my MIDI interface is working properly?

A: Start OMS Setup and load your Studio Setup (if it didn’t load automatically). Click on the Studio menu and select Test Studio. Hit a Key on a MIDI keyboard controller which is connected to the MIDI in or hit a note on your M-Audio MIDI keyboard. If you hear a voice saying “MIDI received” or if you see one of the small arrows going to and from the virtual keyboard on the sceen flashing, the MIDI input is working properly. Click on the virtual keyboard in your Studio Setup. A bunch of notes will be sent to the MIDI output port. If you hear sound from the MIDI Synthesizer or Sound Module which is connected to the MIDI out, then it is working properly.
