ES8 not responding to USB Midi?

Post by Julia123 » Wed Jun 26, 2019 3:57 pm

My new Kawai ES8 will not receive recorded midi from Ableton. It sends midi to Ableton 9.7.3 fine. It looks like I have everything correct on the ES8. I tested my AudioMidi from my iMac running 10.13.6 and the ES8 will receive a note from that test just fine. I enabled Midi-USB output in Ableton preferences. I do not see any sort of listing for Kawaii ES8 if that matters. Midi from the Ableton track with the midi is set to all. Any guidance would be very appreciated! Thanks.

Hi Julia123,
I have been thinking about getting an ES8 or ES7 for use with Ableton 9. Have you found any issues with using that combination?
regards
Steve
