Hello. I have owned the 2x4 since new with the intention of setting up a midi studio but never needed it as I discovered Reason and have used it for years. I would now like to use Reason with my external synths under rewire. I've spent the last weekend reading the forums here and the problem listed here may be quite common. I have followed the advice given to others here and still have a problem. The first thing I did was to wipe my PC and reinstall XP pro and Reason 6. The midi cable is OK and my U20 plays other synths with it and my Eridol plays my U20 with it.
The 2x4 is attached to the PC with the USB. There is no midi in detected under Reason 6, Cubase SL or midioxse. midi out is showing on the 2x4 under midioxse.
1) If the input 1 is connected to the output 3 or input 2 is connected to output 1 the input is detected under MidiOX (if they are selected).
2) The 2x4 input 1 (and 2) flash when I connect either my Roland U20 or Edirol pcr30. They flash even more when I press notes on either keyboard but no messages are detected under midioxse or Reason which I would imagine means it recognises midi notes in.
I have tried the original 2x4 driver and the latest drivers, both display the same problem. I have no idea where I'm going wrong. Any help would be appreciated.
