    Sending Midi messages to SAMS

    Hi.
    Its been a while since I spent any time getting the SAMs (stop action magnets) working. I had to re-enter the event info after changing my MIDI device and now I can't get GO to send the messages. Using Midi-Ox I see no messages getting out.
    If I send an all-notes-off from GO I do see that.

    My settings are;
    Event no, kx uart ( the midi device)
    Device, kx uart
    Event, 9x note
    Channel 10
    Ctrl/pgm 83
    Off value O, on value 127

    Any ideas why the messages don't get sent?
    I've looked through all the settings and they seem ok, and as I say the all-notes-off works.

    Thanks,
    Mick

    GO sends the messages to the mentioned interface - unless Midi-OX is intercepting the outgoing MIDI traffic on that interface, you won't see the messages.

    Did you check, which output MIDI interface are currently active in the global GO MIDI settings?

    I thought that the fact I was seeing the all-notes-off messages would prove that I had everything set up correctly. Anyway I'll keep looking.
    Thanks,

    I think the sound card is defective. I have ordered two replacements (they are getting rare these days, but only six bucks each!)

    Actually it was the Midi adapter. (Joystick DB-15 to Midi ) Hard to find a decently priced replacement. Anyone have one they aren't using?
    Thanks,

    Such adapters are quite simple:

    They just provide electrical isolation - the rest of the signal handling is done by the soundcard.

    USB-MIDI Interfaces (with non-broken firmware) are the successor.

    Thanks for finding that, but are you suggesting I build one? The labour involved in finding the parts, and asctually building it,if billed at my technician rate, would make it very expensive.
    It's back to my good old Edirol for now.....
    Thanks,
    Mick

    Can you use a USB to MIDI converter instead of the DB15 that's what I use - no problems? USB to MIDI converters complete with all cabling available from Amazon and other outlets from about $6 up

    Cheers MIKE.

    Thanks for the suggestion Mike. I hadn't seen those cheap interfaces. I ordered one for six bucks free shipping! Meanwhile my Edirol is fine but it only works with XP.
    Cheers,

    I have heard multiple reports of people, who had non-well behaving USB-MIDI interfaces [=ship a broken firmware].

    PS: Linux ships USB-MIDI drivers, which should work with all class compilant USB devices.
