In Reply to: Frustrating RS-5/SONAR/AWE64Gold problem ! posted by Eren G on March 31, 2002 at 04:35:51:

I have exactly the same problem with my Roland E-35 and my Soundblaster AWE-64 gold soundcard. When I try to play, I get random notes (among the right notes). For a long time I thought either the soundcard or my keyboard was broken somehow. But it looks like I'm not the only one, so it might be a general problem (?). Yet I haven't found a solution to the problem, and it's really frustrating. Does anyone know what's wrong or how to solve the problem?????? please.

: Hi All,

: I'm having the strangest problem ever. My MIDI setup is the Roland RS-5
: connected to my Soundblaster AWE64 Gold card's joystick port and
: Cakewalk SONAR as the sequencer.

: RS-5 plays the Midi files and sample cakewalk files perfectly
: but when I try to play on the keyboard (local control:off) or record
: anything to the sequencer I get random notes, stuck notes, random
: patch changes and a whole bunch of other chaotic stuff. It's really
: bad. So I called up my friend and he brought his Yamaha CSx
: keyboard . when we hooked it up to the computer it worked fine. So I
: thought there was something wrong with my rs-5, but then we
: controlled the sounds on the yamaha csx with my roland rs-5 through
: the computer and it worked fine too. So there is nothing wrong with
: the send or receive (midi) functions of my rs-5 but there seems to
: be a "personal" problem between it and SONAR. I have tried to use it
: with finale too and it gave me the same problem ( random patch
: changes, stuck notes, random notes, no sound etc. ).

: If anyone has heard of , lived through or seen anything like this
: please let me know . It's beginning to get really frustrating.

: Thanks,

: Eren
