Installing Miditzer on a Technics sx ex70

Post by chrisn » Wed Jun 04, 2014 7:02 am

HELP!!!!
I am trying to install Miditzer on a Technics SX EX 70 and having lots of issues:

Top keyboard no sound apart from a couple of notes and some of the lower keys on upper manual show on the PC as lower manual notes!
Bottom keyboard appears to work OK
Pedals seem to work

However when a note/pedal is pressed it stays on and doesn't turn off when I take my finger off the note?

Any help would be most appreciated

What make and model of cable are you using to connect the MIDI Out of the Technics to your computer? If it is one those low cost, "no name" cables, the cable is a likely source of your problems.

Hi
I thought that as it is a cheap one, I will order a better one and hopefully it will work!
Thanks, I will report back when I try the new lead

The Emu Xmidi 1x1 is a good, reasonably priced choice. The Roland UX-1 is also well regarded. I'd avoid the M-Audio Uno but the other M-Audio interfaces seem to do a good job. Feel free to post what you are considering for an opinion from the Forum members before you make a purchase.

Chrisn.........I too have a Technics (FA-1).....and from the very beginning I have used the E-MU Midi 1x1 16 Channel USB MIDI Interface which I ordered from Amazon.....It has worked flawlessly and aided me as I stumbled thru learning how to use it and set up my Miditzer system.....Most of the problems you may face (as I did) are simply trial/error experience of determining the peripherals that work with your instrument....Just wait till you get it all set up...you'll enjoy the %$# out of it....
Happy playing'

New lead received and it works fine, however my pc is now playing up!! Miditzer 216 works fine on installation but the next time I try to use it get the following message - Runtime error This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. I'm using Windows 7 and don't know what to do!!
Any help would be most appreciated

Just as a hunch, try right clicking on the Miditzer icon in the Windows Start menu and selecting "Run as Administrator". If the Miditzer starts, do the necessary configuration using the Miditzer's Settings and then exit the Miditzer. Now try starting the Miditzer normally.

If anyone has seen this message and knows of a different way to resolve it, please let us know. I have seen this message but it was so long ago I don't recall how it was resolved.
