External Instrument as Midi through Audio Interface??

Post by Samnunez » Tue Sep 25, 2018 3:41 am

Hey y'all peeps, I have a question I am interested in with all external instruments that I think anyone with any DAW will find useful because I haven't found anything online!
I know I can buy a midi cable, but I want to know this: I have a Roland Juno Di and a Zoom H6, and I want to use the Juno as a Midi. I don't know how to set this up at all. I tried many different things that I won't list, but my problem I think is in Ableton not recognising this synth because perhaps it is going through the audio interface, and also it isn't listed in its default choices (another thing I don't know how to fix). Any help on this would be absolutely awesome and would be much appreciated!

You can convert a ts cable into a psudo midi controller by converting audio into Melody/Bass/Harmony/Rhythm and assigning that to a VI or output to another external midi device. lol

But please list your interface and drivers and list your MIDI I/O and we can help you better.
Check out some of my soundtracks. Also Ableton Live Performance video.

Install the correct driver from the roland website to your computer, then connect the juno-di to your computer with usb cable. Midi over usb is a feature of the juno-di.
