Anyone trying to use the E-MU 1X1 MIDI - USB cable betwen GT-8 and a computer out there? I am fooling with the Sony SoundForge v9.0a and Sony AcipPro v6.0d trial versions (http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/default.asp) to see if I can use the MIDI capability in these packages to trigger from the GT-8.
I am also trying to get the E-MU MIDI-USB (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/home/navigation?q=e-mu) cable to connect from my laptop to the GT-8 using the GT-8 FX Floorboard software from SourceForge.net (http://fxfloorboard.sourceforge.net/). Unfortunately, the GT-8 MIDI dump from system to temp does not result in a file on this package as the MIDI cable I/O lights remain off and the software reports GT-8 not found error upon setting it to receive MIDI from the GT-8.
My setup is as follows:
Epiphone LP Black Beauty Guitar to GT-8 input socket
GT-8 to headphone via line/headphone socket
GT-8 to Epiphone Blues 30 amp via Left out socket
GT-8 MIDI IN & OUT to E-MU IN/OUT cable
E-MU USB end of cable to laptop USB port
Sony Soundforge v9.0a or AcidPro v6.0d running on laptop and detecting E-MU 1x1 cable on both in & out MIDI ports.
Can someone help with an explanation on what I am missing to make MIDI out from GT-8 work with MIDI IN on laptop? GT-8 is set as OMNI=ON and all default MIDI settings.
If I can make this work, next step is a sound card from GT-8 digital out socket to soundcard Line-in socket and I can record and trigger MIDI effects between my guitar, GT-8 and laptop running AcidPro during gigs and Soundforge during studio recording!
