can I connect midi keyboard to an onboard ac97 sound card?
Posted on 2002-07-14
I have a motherboard for pentium 4 and it has an onboard AC97 sound card. I want to connect a midi interface to the joustick port , so I can use midi software with my keyboard.
but the midi software won't recognize a "midi in" or "midi out" driver.
I installed the sound driver's in the motherboard cd I got. there are 2 drivers under "sound, video , and game controllers":
1. Avance AC'97 audio for VIA (R) audio controller
2. gameport joystick
in my old computer I had drivers like: sb16 midi in
and sb16 midi out, and everything worked fine.
is it possible to connect midi to this onboard sound card, and if it is where do I find ther drivers?
btw, I'm using windows 98 SE.
