Can't get Miditzer 216 to work with Tyros 5

Post by TechiGeoff » Tue Aug 09, 2016 4:05 am

Hi All
I have been using Miditzer 216 for a few years now with no problems. I have windows 10 and it has been working fine with my Tyros.
I have had to re-install 216 and now can not get it to work from the Tyros.
I get the messages :-
undefined external error
Can't open midi device
Digital Workstation-1 :The specified device handle is invalid.
I have set the keyboard to transmit solo on channel 1 and Miditzer see's the workstation 1 and solo is set to channel 1 but will not work and I get the messages above, when going into Miditzer settings.
Hope someone can help please.

It sounds like the configuration was damaged in the reinstall process. Try using the Miditzer 216 Base Camp item in the Windows Start menu to startup the 216. Accept the offers to reset things as the program starts up. This will wipe out everything you have configured. If that is going to be an issue, don't do the Base Camp start up and ask for help on storing the settings so you can try to recover them once you get the 216 going.
