I have essentially the same set up.... My question is how do I get to record the Novation A station's knob movements in midi? I have an S80 that i use as a controller. I get no midi signal whatsoever into the computer when I use the Novation A Station's midi out. I do when I use the Midi Thru port, but cannot record the knob movements using that port!!

Any help is appreciated.


: im sorry it should read audio card not audio file.

: : so i should not connect the midi in and out comming out of the computers 2496 audio file.

: : : You can hook them up in any way you like, the good thing about having a MIDI patchbay is that you can route the signal from any input to any output.
: : : Make sure you connect the MIDI out's from your MIDI devices to the MIDI IN on the Midisport, and vica versa. The controllers only have MIDI OUT's so they can simply go to the MIDI IN's. Devices with both IN's and OUT's can be hooked up the both the OUT's and IN's
: : : on the Midisport. Your computer should be connected to the USB port only, it can send and receive all 8 ports
: : : thru the USB cable.
