Hi I have for more than a year a Code 61. I've always used in USB and it work preatty nice.
But i'm trying to use it with a midi cable so I plug the midi cable in the OUT of the keyboard, then I plug the midi cable in the IN of the audio card (AudioBox USB96) then i go in Ableton and in "preference" I select as midi input and output the AudioBox and it doesn"t work, ableton recieve no midi signal... Am I doing something wrong please help.

(I didn't forget to turn on the keyboard and plugin a 9V DC 1A cable)

    Hey Edeline,

    Thanks for posting!

    The 5 PIN MIDI In and Out ports on the Code Series keyboards are disabled by default. From your description, it sounds like you may been to enable the port.

    To activate the MIDI Out port:

    1. Press Edit to enter Edit Mode. The Edit button will light up.

    2. Press the MIDI Out key to enable the port. The display will show MID and whether the port is ON or OFF.

    3. To change it while the display still shows the state, press the MIDI Out key or a Preset Down/Up key to switch between ON or OFF.


    To confirm your change, wait for 1 second. You will exit Edit Mode automatically.

    If you’re still having trouble, we can verify whether your Code is sending MIDI data to your computer with MIDI monitoring software. A MIDI monitor will show you all the incoming data from any MIDI controllers or MIDI interfaces that you have connected to your computer.

    For testing MIDI devices on PC:
    Download MIDI-OX

    This video will get you set up quickly for MIDI input monitoring in MIDI-OX:
    Monitoring MIDI Input with MIDI-OX

    For testing MIDI devices on Mac:
    Download snoize: MIDI Monitor

    Select the MIDI interface as a MIDI input source in the monitor and send some data with its keys and controllers. If you see data appear in the input monitor window, the controller is sending MIDI data to your computer and will only need to be configured for MIDI input in the software you're using. Please refer to your software's documentation for more information regarding software setup.

    If the Code is not sending MIDI data to the monitor, it may be hardware related. Warranty and non-warranty claims cannot be handled here on the forum but I can point you in the right direction! Here are a couple of options that you could choose from:

    • Submit a Warranty or Service Inquiry with our Technical Support team by logging onto the M-Audio Support Page. Select Warranty or Service Inquiry from the drop down menu. This will not require a support code.

    or

    • For faster support, call or email your nearest Support Office or International Distributor. Select your country to find the nearest office.

    Make sure to reference or link to this thread to help out the support team.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.
