M Audio accent piano

HI
I have an Accent that I want ot use as a Midi controller but despite turning on the Midi mode and selecting the channel the messages are not getting through. The Accent is registered in windows and Cubase. Downloaded MIDI OX to see if messages are being received and surprise NO ??? even though it is showing up in MIDI OX as a midi device. Any suggestions :) ?

  • Hey Alan,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Accent is a class compliant controller so you should be able to connect it to your computer via USB and send MIDI data right away. The Accent's MIDI Mode is relative to the MIDI DIN connection only.

    How are you connecting the Accent to your computer - via USB or MIDI DIN? It sounds like USB if Cubase and your MIDI monitor is registering the Accent's connection by its name. It is possible that the data is not transferring completely so I would recommend testing your connection with a different USB cable, different USB ports on your computer, and even with a different computer to see if you can reproduce the same behavior.

    Try that and let me know how it works out!

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply. Yes I am using USB and after your suggestion of changing USB ports and cables I did get a Timing clock display in the input window of MIDI OX and on playing some keys some notes came as well ( With the notes being displayed in the input window of MIDI OX and their relative value) though with quite a bit of latency. Couldn't get rid of the timing clock display though. It has now stopped and doing nothing. As you suggest I may get a 5 Din MIDI to USB conversion and what happens. Unfortunately I do not have another computer to try it out with :(.

    Thanks again for your help
    Speak Soon
