Pakewalker

No midi input (midi works fine in every other application)

Question

Hi, I'm having trouble playing midi with cakewalk. It works perfectly fine with WASAPI, but, if I use ASIO4ALL, then there is no midi INPUT when I play the keys on the physical midi instrument. If I play the keys on the digital VST, it outputs sound normally. So output problems are discarded. The midi instrument also works perfectly fine, as shown in MIDI-OX. The CASIO USB-MIDI instrument is connected in the MIDI/Devices configuration, and MIDI Omni selected as track input. And, again, midi works perfectly fine with cakewalk when using WASAPI. But it doesn't show any input when ASIO is active.

Sorry, it turns out the problem was solved after I reset the vst instrument power button as well as cakewalk. I was trying to solve other problem right before this one (I couldn't have sound output for asio until I disabled the windows Realtek interface speakers) and it seems that something unexpectedly messed up with the overall midi input.

Anyways, I was setting up Asio instead of WASAPI because I thought it would help with the random halts I was having when using sample libraries. But it didn't. I guess it is some limitation with my system's specs.

Are you using Cakewalk by Bandlab 2020.1 build 24?

What audio interface are you using?  Does it come with native ASIO drivers?  If so , then ditch ASIO4ALL and use them instead

What soft synth are you trying to play. 

Have you checked the MIDI channels on the CASIO USB-MIDI instrument and the MIDI track are correctly set?
