  • Hi Mike,

    Thanks for posting!

    First, make sure to try different USB cables and ports. That never hurts. It would also be great to know what operating system and DAW you are using.

    Next, I would close your DAW and do a general test with a MIDI monitor just to see if any MIDI data is making it from the M-Track to your computer:

    Windows: MIDI-OX

    Open MIDI-OX with all other programs closed. In the Options>MIDI Devices section, select your controller ports from the MIDI Input menu. Click OK.
    Now MIDI-OX will simply list all incoming MIDI messages. This will help confirm if the controller itself is responding properly.


    Mac: MIDI Monitor

    Open MIDI Monitor with all other programs closed. In the "Sources" section, check the boxes for your controller's ports.
    Now MIDI Monitor will list all incoming MIDI Messages. This will help confirm if the controller itself is responding properly.


    Let me know how this goes!

  • hi corey,
    thanks for your reply and suggestions. just for reference of others reading this i am using windows 8.1 and sonar x3 studio. in the end i downloaded and installed a driver update (version 1.0.6) from the m-audio website and, once i had reset the preferences in my daw (selecting the asio4all option as i was already using this), it seemed to kick it back to life. working fine now, but it's a bit of a mystery why it stopped working in the first place. hope this will help anyone who has a similar problem, cheers, mike.
