    I recently bought a MIDI to USB adapter, and am having real problems getting it to work, I tried it out on some drum pads I got given.

    And most notes it wouldn't recognise, and the few that it did were just sustained and kept on going forever.

    I thought it maybe a problem with the drums but I have also tried the adapter with my keyboard which I know the MIDI works on and it has the same problem.

    The adapter doesn't need a driver because it's plug and play, so I don't know what to do now, and I don't want to buy another one when they're like 15 quid.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Cheers

    I'm having the same problem with the same cable. Were you able to fix it? I'm going to try a different cable.

    I have a different cable which is good quality. It once worked then my computer got a virus (my bro went on my computer without permission that basterd) and it won't recognize hits at all. I have a guide on midi and I have midi installed on my computer.

    Suggestion?
