I want to set bed eco up so that I can play it through my midi keyboard. When opened in standalone mode, In i/o settings/ midi ports my keyboard does not show up. I also launched pro tools, opened bfd as a plug in, still the keyboard doesn't show up. How can I get it there?
I'm assuming it doesn't appear in the list when you try to set it up in Pro Tools also.
Is it connected through USB? Make sure you have installed the USB drivers for the keyboard. If the drivers are installed, it should be selectable among the midi devices in all your software setup screens.
If you're not connecting it with USB but with a midi interface (using midi cables) then select the midi port of your midi interface that the keyboard is plugged into.
