Use any keyboard as midi controller with ableton??

Post by baskara » Sun Jun 23, 2019 2:50 pm

So my goal is I want to use any digital keyboard like Yamaha, Korg, Nord, etc (especially Yamaha) as a regular Midi controller in Ableton Live 10.

I bought NI Komplete audio 6 (KA6) as my audio interface (since it has MIDI I/O) and 10ft midi cable to connect any keyboards to my KA6. I already set the midi preference in both of Ableton's preference and each track of my VST (as I post the image below). I've connected the MIDI OUT from the keyboard to MIDI IN on my audio interface (KA6).

But the problem is, as I press the tuts of the keyboard it gets nothing. Until 5-10 seconds later Ableton response with sound randomly and it freezes the sound both in the mixer and piano roll (the picture down below I get after I pressed several keys for like 15 second with Yamaha MX88).

Is there something wrong with my setup? Did I miss something?

Win or Mac?

If win, are you using the asio drivers for the audio interface? What is the buffer setting?
