    One at a time.

    The Korg:

    Pro Tools has to be configured to see the Korg properly. Is you midi setup page set as to recognize the Korg and your midi interface?

    Each midi track in the session must have a midi input and a midi output. If your midi setup is configured the input would in most circumstances be set to "Korg All". The output of the midi track should be set to most likely Korg 1 corresponding to the patch you choose in the keyboard.

    The aux track you setup to monitor the keyboard itself will be set to "input" 5 and 6.

    The "Local" on and off switch inside your Korg MUST be set to OFF

    First, I have requested from the webmaster permission for a sticky (a permanent post at the top of the thread) on basic MIDI and the differences in MIDI/audio. I hope he allows it because most of the MIDI questions around here are usually pretty simple and could be easily answered by a simple sticky. Yours is a little more complicated though.

    So you want to be able to:

    1. send sound from the MPC to computer
    2. send sound from the Triton to computer
    3. use the MPC as your main controller
    4. use the Triton to control soft synths/soft samplers from the computer
    5. use the Triton to control the MPC via midi sequences.

    I hope I have that right. Although you said you want to use the MPC as your main controller, you really seem to be using the Triton as your main controller. Maybe I'm missing something here though.

    The short answer is that each device has MIDI in/out capability. You can use any device to control another. For example, you could use the Triton to control the MPC and record the MIDI sequence with Pro Tools with a MIDI track. Upon playback in Pro Tools, the MIDI track will playback the MIDI info which will control the MPC. If the MPC's audio out's are connected to the Digi's audio in's, you can record the sound from the MPC to an audio track in Pro Tools as the MIDI track is playing and controlling the MPC.


    And the long answer..........I would sugguest connecting everything so that you can control all devices with any device. In other words, you could control the MPC and Pro tools via the Triton, control the Triton and Protools via the MPC, and control the Triton and MPC via Pro Tools. You'll be covered all the way around.

    The simplest way I can think of to do that would be to connect:

    1. Digi MIDI out 1 to the MPC MIDI in
    2. Digi MIDI out 2 to the Triton MIDI in
    3. MPC MIDI out 1 to the Triton MIDI thru
    4. Triton MIDI out to the Digi MIDI in
    5. MPC audio out to the Digi audio in
    6. Triton audio out to the Digi audio in

    Optionally, and what most people would probably sugguest is to get an additional MIDI interface for your computer and connect the MPC MIDI out to the interface MIDI in rather than going thru the Triton MIDI thru port. You only need 1 additional MIDI in to avoid using the Triton's MIDI thru. Something like the MIDISport would probably be fine. I would hook up the Triton to the Digi first and get that working properly before adding in the MPC or vice versa.

    In Pro Tools, you will route the Digi's MIDI in/outs to the MIDI tracks and if your using soft synths/samplers you will need to choose those as your MIDI outs. Also, make sure that any MIDI track you are using is on the same MIDI channel as the device that you are controlling or controlling with.

    out of everything that you said to me this is the only thing that made sense to me "The "Local" on and off switch inside your Korg MUST be set to OFF"

    i need a more detailed explination of all of this........like you were talking to a person who has no idea what you are talking about

    Each midi track in the session must have a midi input and a midi output. If your midi setup is configured the input would in most circumstances be set to "Korg All". The output of the midi track should be set to most likely Korg 1 corresponding to the patch you choose in the keyboard.

    No no...to the contrary. What you need is a far less detailed explanation. You're taking on a greater task than is prudent. Lot's of horses before the cart.

    As I said earlier 1 step at a time. If it were me I'd change the angle of attack and work on a fundamental understanding of a very simple Korg/Pro Tools midi setup. Nothing more nothing less. Once you reach that point I suspect your ducks will begin to fall in place as to a larger more complicated midi rig.

    Let's take a few simple steps here..

    1) Have you gone into the Pro Tools midi setup page and configured your rig for midi..........yea or ney?? This is the core building block of Pro Tools midi. Without it all else WILL fail. It is a pull down menu that is simple to find. You simply can't move ahead without it.

    2) Do you feel like yo have a firm grasp on a simple midi track/aux return track scenario in Pro Tools?? Yes or no??? If no we need to talk about that before proceeding.

    Let's start there

    1) One midi track. Input set to "Korg All"

    Output set to "Korg 1"

    2) One Stereo Aux track. Input set to 5 and 6 (where earlier you said you've plugged your korg into)

    Output set to "Main out"

    3) Arm midi track for record

    4)Local control off in Korg
