I’m a new Podium user. I’ve hooked up my keyboard which has a usb midi interface, and I see that the midi interface light turns green when I play the keyboard. I’ve download several VST instruments and assigned one of them to the source of track 1. I have a master track that outputs to my computer’s speakers. I can’t get track 1 to register anything coming from the keyboard. Please help! Thanks.
First thing to check is if Podium has account of your MIDI hardware device: Setup > Audio/MIDI… > MIDI Devices (tab) > MIDI input interfaces (section)
Ensure your device is listed and that there’s a check mark next to it. Then hit ‘Apply’ and ‘Okay’. Podium will ask if you want to update the mappings, so allow this.
Then, within your arrangement, below a track’s Source selector (drop-down menu), there’s an Input selector. Your MIDI device should be within that menu, probably with a generic label like ‘MIDI In’. Select that device and the track should then be able to receive MIDI input.
Once a MIDI Input is selected, if you Right-Click the slot you will find an option to Auto-Assign to Focus Track. Enabling this option means that when you select a track, the MIDI device will automatically be input of that track.
