    hmmm. what is actually chapping? when you play MIDI notes is it showing up on your synth as receving MIDI information? You have got the synth set up right?


    Audio Out 1+2 from your synth going into Input 1+2 of your audio interface.

    MIDI out of your synth going into MIDI input of your audio interface.

    MIDI in of your synth recieving its signal from MIDI output of your audio interface.

    Make sure your audio and MIDI settings are correct in Utilities on the MACHD.

    Make sure your synth is on a patch not demo song etc.

    Apart from that I do not understand why it would not play if you followed them videos to a T, possibly changed the leads get back to me if still no luck and il have anther think.

    hi there i have audio 1&2 from my synth going to my input on my audio interface
    and i just have a usb going from my synth to my mac,
    when i play the keys when i have it on external midi i see key changes on logic just no sound, do you think i need midi from my synth to midi on my audio interface?
    cheers for your time james

    Have you set up an auxiliary channel with the input set to 1+2 (that's if your synth is routed to input one and two on your interface).

    You need MIDI out from your synth going into the MIDI in of your interface and MIDI in coming from MIDI out of your interface, it sounds like you already have MIDI set up correctly though.

    Try setting the aux up and that should slove your problems.

    Go into your mixer go on the 'options' tab chose 'create new auxiliary channel strip' on the input of that channel strip chose input 1 and 2.
