: I bought my 13 year old son a QS7 for Christmas. We have a decent PC (330 MHz Pentium II). I know very little about the synthesizer and the manual might as well be printed in Russian. We hooked up the QS to the PC with the MIDI cable, provided by the dealer, to the gameport of the PC. I called Alesis and got the scoop on the proper setting to connect to the PC. We cannot record, playback, or for that matter, even get sound. The soundcard in my CPU is listed as a 3D PCI (ESS Solo 1). Any tips, tricks or general information on getting this thing up and running would be greatly appreciated. I'm also looking for a good, basic information source for a layman, such as myself, to begin learning. Thanks.
Something you should check in Windows. Goto: Control Panel | Multimedia icon - (Midi tab) This is what Windows is currently using for MIDI. Select Roland MPU-401 (usually) as the midi output port - and not your sound card.
