: Hi!

: I am new to MIDI and Cakewalk. I have a Fostex D-90 8-track digital recorder with a MIDI in/out/thru. My music is already recorded on the D-90, and I would like to use Cakewalk to do the final mix and burn CD's from my music. I am trying to set up the D-90 to output a MIDI signal to the built-in MPU-401 device on my Pentium 4 PC.

: I have an onboard CMedia CMI8738/C3DX sound chip. I realize I probably need a better sound device, but for now I'd like to see if I can make this work. I am putting the 15 pin end of the MIDI cable into the game/MIDI port on my PC.

: I have setup MIDI tracks on Cakewalk which show 16 MIDI Channels, and also MIDI Omni, as their choice for "In". (I would want to use the first 8 individual channels, which I assume should be the same as the tracks on my Fostex). Currently, I can't even check to see whether Cakewalk is receiving a MIDI signal. The Cakewalk help says to look for the MIDI Input Monitor icon, but I can't find it! I'm sure I have plenty of other problems as well, but finding the MIDI Input Monitor would be a start.

: Apologies for the long post, and thanks for any help!

If your OS is Windows 9x and you position your taskbar on the bottom of your screen, then the midi icon will be in your taskbar on the right with your clock, monitor, volume control, and the other icons.
FYI, the midi icon will appear with two red lights that blink during midi activity, one for midi in, and one for midi out.
Good luck, SC
