Greetings. This is a simple and straightforward question, and I believe the answer shouldn't be too difficult. Here is my setup and what I am trying to do.
Soundcard #1 is on my PC. It is a cheap soundcard, and it's where all my MIDI commands originate. I am sending MIDI commands starting at Soundcard #1.
KR-277 is my digital piano.
Soundcard #2 is my professional recording soundcard. I want everything to be received here.
I have my Soundcard #1 MIDI Out hooked up into my Piano's MIDI In. The connection works, because when I send MIDI commands from the PC, the piano plays it.
I have my Piano's MIDI Out to my MIDI In on Soundcard #2. This also works, because when I play keys, the commands are sent successfully to Soundcard #2.
Now, the problem, is that when I send commands from Soundcard #1, the MIDI commands don't make it to Soundcard #2. The piano plays them, but the MIDI commands aren't going through the piano into it's MIDI out. They are simply played. Now, my piano doesn't have a MIDI THRU port, but I think that's okay.
Is there anyway to get my piano to use it's MIDI Out port with all the data it receives from it's MIDI In port? As you see, I am just daisy chaining to get to Soundcard #2. The manual had no information on sending MIDI information it receives via MIDI in.
