I\'d like to use VMPK in combination with ableton, to see clearly on my screen which keys i\'m playing (the way my tutor uses it while explaining musical theory). I\'m working on windows 7 and i\'m unable to set VMPK right:
- If i don\'t tick omni mode, the keyboard stops functioning and there\'s no more midi coming through. If i tick they keyboard with my mouse, i do hear the sounds.
- If i do tick omni mode, the midi signals do get registered (keys get the colored \'ticks\') but i still hear no sound
Now, the fact that VMPK isn\'t working correctly for me this way is not my major problem, because i don\'t want the sounds from VMPK. I want to use the virtual piano\'s in Ableton. The problem i have, is that if i open VMPK first and Ableton after, then VMPK signals my midi movements but Ableton doesn\'t. The other way around, if i first open up Ableton it registers my midi signals from my keyboard but VMPK is not registering my signals anymore?
I compared my VMPK settings with my tutor, and he had a \'blanc\' midi output setting in VMPK. I tried to track all VMPK related files and deleted them, uninstalled the program and reinstalled VMPK but unfortunately, midi output is always entered with Microsoft soundoutput now.
I guess the fact that i\'ll have to tick omni mode currently in order to see the notes i\'m playing is troubling midi with ableton? If yes, how am i able to get a clean \'midi output\' setting in VMPK? :)
