Pro Tools 12 MIDI Input Devices greyed out when setting up Code 61

I'm trying to set up my Code 61 with Pro Tools 12. I'm following article 1869 in the support knowledge base, M-Audio Code Series - Setup in Pro Tools. It's asking me, under Setup, to choose my MIDI Input Devices, but "Input Devices" is greyed out. I've switched from a USB 3.0 to a USB 2.0 port and that did not work. Any ideas?

  • Hi Sam,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Code ports are greyed out or the option for "Input Devices" is greyed out? Were you able to select the Code ports in the peripheral setup?

    What operating system are you using?

    Pro Tools should automatically be listening to all MIDI inputs, so that step is really just to double-check that it is. If you're able to play any software instruments with the keyboard than it may not even be necessary, though it would be strange if the Input Devices menu isn't even selectable.

    If you're using Windows, try running Pro Tools "as administrator and see if that helps at all.

    Let me know if you can provide any more info.

  • Hi Corey,

    Thanks so much for the quick response!  I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner.  I got it to work.  I was able to select the Code ports in the peripheral setup.  I'm using Windows 10.  I'm also running Pro Tools as an Administrator.

    I assumed since I couldn't get the Code 61 to work with Pro Tools since I couldn't do that last step noted in the 1869 article.  I went ahead and continued on in the article, which indicates how to set up a new track and choose an instrument to use with the Code 61.  When I did that, it was all good.  The Input Devices were even un-greyed by then and I could complete everything.

    Thanks for the quick help!  Another one resolved!

    Regards,
    Sam
