: I don't know what I'm doing wrong:

: I have an Alesis QS8.1
: Cubase VST ver 5
: A Sony VAIO PCG-XG39K running Windows 2000 Professional, PIII 850, with an internal Yamaha DS-XG pci audio card.
: Midiman 2X2 USB

: I connected the midi-out from my keyboard to the midi-in on my midiman and the USB from my midiman to the USB connector on my Sony Vaio.

: I start up Cubase VST 5, and press keys on my keyboard. When I do this I see the light on my midiman flash, but nothing on my software registers that is sees anything coming in -- the level indicator should show something, but it doesn't.

: I was wondering if anyone knows if this setup should work or if there is something else I need to do or buy to get my keyboard working with my sequencer software.

I think you need to connect your midi out on the QS to the midi in on the midiman, and then take the midi out on th midiman to the midi in on the QS...I hope that makes sense the way I wrote it.

Additionally, make sure your midi set up options are correct...good luck!
