Checking the Windows XP MIDI Interface

A few pages back, you learned how to be sure that your sound card is working under Windows and that it is available for use with Cubase SX 2. Similarly, with MIDI interfaces, you want to be sure the interface is installed and available in Windows before you configure it in Cubase.

To confirm a working MIDI interface in Windows XP

1.
From the Start menu, select Settings > Control Panel.

2.
In the control panel, double-click Sounds and Audio Devices.

3.
In the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties panel, click the Hardware tab to display it (Figure 1.17).

Figure 1.17. The Hardware tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties panel.


4.
In the list of installed hardware, you should see the MIDI interface, or the name of your sound card. Select it and then click Properties (Figure 1.18).

Figure 1.18. To check system-level MIDI, select the sound card or interface and click Properties.


5.
In the panel that opens, click the Properties tab.

6.
Click the small plus (+) sign to the left of the MIDI Devices and Instruments option to expand the list and see the installed MIDI interfaces (Figure 1.19).

Figure 1.19. This list shows active, working MIDI interfaces.


7.
If your MIDI interface is listed here, click Cancel to close the Properties window and then click Cancel to close the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties panel. All is well.
