Behringer UMC404HD MIDI Query

Hi
Does this unit transfer MIDI via its USB connection? Or via the MIDI out?
I have just bought one and connected a MIDI keyboard. The MIDI in indicator lights up when I am playing but not the MIDI out. It does not show up as a MIDI device in any of my apps.
I assumed MIDI was transferred via USB but am I wrong? If so what’s the point of having MIDI ports?!!
Thanks
Tim

  • It does do these things, but in the iPad you have to TELL it how you want to route the MIDI ins and outs. I talk about it here, as well as in other videos of mine:

  • Thanks Daveypoo. But surely it must be possible to use the Behringer’s MIDI ports without having to resort to complex, third-party software??!

    Do you mean that the UMC404 is not showing up in your apps? Some apps have very poor settings / controls and basically just send to Network MIDI

    If you mean that the keyboard doesn’t show up then that is the way things work! You just send midi out the MIDI port - and the iPad has no clue what is plugged in!

    If you give some more specifics, it would help.

    What apps are you using?

    Have you configured them to receive external MIDI?

    Does the interface show up in your apps where you configure them?
