I have a Optimus Concertmate 990 and am having trouble setting it up. I am new at midi equiptment and do not know how to set it up in Win95. I have a cable that has a joystick type end which I plugged into my joystick port on my sound card. The other end of the cable splits off into "IN" and "OUT" which I plugged into the back of my midi keyboard into the correct slots. I do not know how to set it up in windows or how to record with it. Also, my soundcard is a general 16-bit SB compatible. It is an IO Majic PnP.
There are several different modes in the keyboard itself:
GM Mode on/off (general midi mode)
I am not sure what these mean and the manual is very vage on them. There are also mentions of keyboard channels, which I am puzzled over.
Finally,I have software in order to record music onto my hard drive? If so, I have downloaded Jazz++ from www.jazzware.com
. Would this work? And how is it used with a midi keyboard?
