I have bought Ardour because I assumed that it would be right for my setup… but as they say, to assume is to make an “ass” of “u” and “me”…
I have an Ensoniq ASR-10 which I have resurrected recently (with some new SCSI hardware) to listen to and edit some old MIDI tracks from 20+ years ago. I assumed that Ardour would allow me to use a MIDI keyboard, to output and receive midi, and then play back the music on the ASR-10 through their respective instrument channels, but I don’t seem to be having much luck with my setup, as while Ardour is aware I have a midi interface plugged into my mac, there is no data transfer when i play and hit record on Ardour even though I have set up my ASR-10 to transmit midi data.
Have I simply made a mistake in purchasing this software? Is it all about software instruments now? Or is there something simple that I am missing to make this work? If not, can anyone recommend a program that is more suited to old-school music equipment that is MIDI based, where I can use the ASR-10’s sounds instead of that of those that are software based?
Any constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated.
