Well , finally (about 10 hours spread over 3 weeks ) I have my laptop talking to all my midi gear !

Basically it was a hardware and a software issue.

Motu now has drivers on it's website for both versions of Vista. The installation is painless and worked the first time for me. The remaining problem I had was the old Midisport 1x1 just wouldn't work period. I already had a Motu Midi Express XT but it's rack mounted and doesn't meet my needs for a self powered portable UBS interface. The Fastlane 2x2 meets all my needs. The Dave Smith stuff and all of my USB equipped synths are talking to the laptop editors now. The voice programming time has been cut by 2/3rd's.

The midi thru button is a nice touch as well. It will work as a thru box even when the computer is off.

Motu makes great stuff!

I'm glad it panned out for you Geno - you must have the patience of a saint.

I wiped my PC of Vista and am now back with XP - I'll wait until the software I must use catches up then try again at a later date.

Ho hum...

I thought the same thing last week. Seems like most of my problems were hardware related. I've had no outa the blue restarts lately so now that it's working I'm a happy camper.

It's just so cool to have editing software for the synths. I guess I'm kinda hard headed , once I lock in on a problem , I tend to hang in there till it's fixed.

Again certain companys like Motu think outside the box enough to solve problems before they begin.

I just ordered their Timepiece for my master midi studio clock.

Glad things worked out Geno, persistance pays off.

No question about it. As an added bonus, I found out last weekend that I can record the phrases and arps generated by my humble Juno D into Sonar. As you would expect the phrases and arps can be edited by the Juno software. So much to explore, so little time.
