Generic MIDI driver for Windows?

Post by McAnix » Sun Jul 21, 2019 2:41 pm

Sorry, first time using a DAW on Windows.

I'm trying to connect a M-Audio Prokeys Sono 61 to a Windows 8 32-bit machine. All I could find was a driver for Win 7 64.

Is there such a thing as a generic MIDI driver for Windows? Or anyone have the driver I'm looking for?

Thank you.

Have you looked here: https://m-audio.com/support/download/dr ... .10.0.5131

There is a 32 bit Win7-SP1 driver in it - you could try using that one!

Hey miyaru!

No I'm just trying to setup something for my baby niece to jam on.

Thanks for the link, alas that is the one i tried, no success, I feel like such a noob on Windows and the prokeys is really old too. I tried it on a another Windows machine but I think it couldn't handle trying to process the audio and kept crashing.

Thanks for the help though!

Yeah, sometimes stuff is to old, and Windows is prone to not working in these circumstances.........but:

the driver states to be for Win7-SP1/32bit too, so most of the time Win8.1 "accepts" it, that's why I found it strange it didn't work.

These days really cheap controllers can be found everywhere, so that might be an option.........
