  • Hey Vic,

    Thanks for posting!

    Sorry you're having some trouble with that! The KeyStudio will only connect to your computer via USB so it doesn't sound like you're making a loop of data going out from the KeyStudio and back into it from the computer.

    From what I understand about the software you're using, you use a MIDI keyboard to input note data and play along with songs. When you say echo, what do you mean, exactly? Are you hearing the notes you enter multiple times?

    The KeyStudio does not process audio, it will only send MIDI to your computer. Check the audio output settings in the software and make sure you have selected the audio devices you're actually using. If you have a microphone connected to your computer (or a built-in microphone) and you are using speakers, the microphone could be picking up the output of the speakers and making a feedback loop. If you're going to be using the microphone, use headphones for the audio output to isolate the sound. If you are not using the microphone, disable it and use either speakers or headphones for audio output.

    We can verify whether your KeyStudio is sending MIDI data to your computer correctly 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:

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

    Select the KeyStudio 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 that represents the same notes you entered, 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 KeyStudio is not sending MIDI data to the monitor, let's test the connection between the controller and the computer. Try connecting the controller with a different USB cable, with different USB ports on your computer, and to a different computer to see if you can reproduce the same behavior. Be sure to connect directly to the computer via USB and avoid using any USB hubs or adapters.

    Try that and let me know how it works out!
