no midi proxy
« on: January 25, 2011, 07:43:31 pm »

Hello, I am attempting to learn zenedit, now that I have the z4 upgrade, I downloaded and installed the proxy, when I open zenedit, it says midi unavailable, I go to reconnect... I don't get the box that asks what kind of device I have... and the midi stays unavailable... also how do I hook up my drom module to get the sounds when I am changing trigger sounds thru zenedit, I have a Roland 6, thanks, Rob

Let's start with what type of computer are you using and which OS.  Also, what MIDI device are you trying to connect to?  Have you confirmed that the drivers are installed correctly?  Can you connect to this MIDI device from other applications?

ZenEdit is a sysex editor and does not connect to your drum module.  You use ZenEdit to edit your sysex file and then send it to your Zendrum using a sysex tool.  From there your can connect your Zendrum to your drum module to hear your sounds.

There are plans in the future to update the MIDI proxy in a way that eliminates the need for a sysex tool middleman.  When that happens it will be possible to preview sounds in your connected module/VST, but there are technical hurdles that need to be overcome beforehand and I cannot estimate when such a feature will be made available.

So long as no other applications are using that MIDI device, it should show up in the list of available devices when you launch the MIDI proxy.  If it still is not showing up then that indicates either a problem with the device or driver, that the device is not properly installed or that Java cannot otherwise see the device.

Did you install Mandolane?  That is one thing that would cause Java to not be able to see your MIDI device.  There is a blurb and a link to Mandolane below the proxy download link: http://nebiru.com/zenedit/index.cfm?event=download
