Anyone using this midi interface with OS 10.2.3? All worked fine until I loaded Finale 2004 for OSX and now no midi. Techsupport both in UK and US blame a fault with the interface or driver - I have downloaded the latest driver availble. Funny how it all worked fine in OS9 and now is faulty in OSX - Help!!!

I couldn't get my 2X2 to work. I downloaded the latest driver and it took quite a lot of goofing around with coremidi to eventually get it going. Can you see the image of the 2X2 in Audio MIDI Setup? I recall it taking CoreMidi a long time to be able to "see" it, and I had to manually configure a New External Device once it finally appeared.

I am using one with 10.2.8 and also had trouble at first. For some reason just switching the USB port worked immediately. If you have an extra port or can swap it try that. Good luck!

I am also using a Midisport 2x2 with OS 10.2.8, but I am only using the OSX demo of Finale, not the full version. CoreMidi would not see the midisport at all at first. I reinstalled the driver, restarted the machine, unplugged and replugged all of my USB cables, and all of a sudden it started working.


Sounds like gremelins!

I have also had difficulties with 2004 and my midiman 2X2. OS 10 .3.2. I have downloaded the latest drivers, etc., but the problem I'm getting is that whenever I use the playback in Finale through my synth (JV-50), and then hit either the stop or pause button, for some reason everything dumps into the synth and fills up the MIDI buff. Then I have to restart the synth. Every time.

It's actually so annoying that I've gone back to using 2003 (without a hitch) until someone addresses the issues and releases an updater. I'm actually pretty annoyed about it. I've paid for every upgrade along the way since version 3. This one was significantly late, and still has significant issues. If anyone has a workaround or solution to this issue, I'd be happy to hear it and get on with things. (Having taken a short sabbatic from my job to study with a Juilliard faculty member privately, I'm particularly vexed because I'm needing to get work done without wasting time on software issues.)

Midiman 2x2 worked fine with me - right from the start...

Using 10.2.8 and now switched to 10.3.2.

I have had the same problems with finale playback through my synth module (jv-1080), but I wasn't sure if it was the midiman 2X2 or finale 04. It won't play multiple instuments, and then it gets backed up and will only play the same part over and over even if I solo another instrument. I can change scores but it still plays my old score! if anyone knows how to fix this it would be much appreciated. freaked

My midiman 2x2 has worked fine in 2k4 (and even in Classic with 2k3a - after a protracted struggle).

My 2x2 works just fine with F2K4 and OS X.3.2, and better than under OS 9. In fact, the computer can go to sleep and still see the 2x2 when it wakes up. Never had that luxury under OS 9. Now, if I could only make QuickTime use the 2x2 instead of it's built-in synth...

I have a Midiman 1 x 1 that works fine with 10.3.2 and 2004 as long as I don't plug it into my USB hub. Could that be the issue for others?

Thanks for the suggestion, which I just tried -plugging directly into the computer instead of the USB hub - and I still get the same result. MIDI Buff full. Have to restart the synth. I didn't have this problem with X.3.2 using Finale 2k3.

I have midisport 2X2, and it's behaving oddly - the 'USB' lite constantly fades quickly in & out, as if the power were fluctuating. What does this mean, is it bad, and how can it be fixed? BTW, it's not working with my Allegro, OMS, and Technics digital piano setup.

I have a midisport 2x2 also. I had the exact same problems. I neede to reinstall the drivers and then run the Coremidi. It was frustrating for about three hours (I lost a lost of hair from pulling). But once the drivers were reinstalled, everything was OK. Also, once it started working, it hasn't stopped working.

Thanks for the info...but...what is 'coremidi'? I haven't run across this in any of my efforts to get things to work. Thanks for any additional information!

This is a normal behavior for midisport 2X2.

...what is 'coremidi'?


CoreMIDI is the MIDI system built into Panther [OS X 10.3.x], eliminating the need for apps like FreeMIDI & OMS. From Finale 2004a, it's selected via MIDI menu > MIDI Setup, "MIDI System" popup menu. The system utility from which you can run scans & tests is at "Your Hard Drive / Applications / Utilities / Audio MIDI Setup"; press the "MIDI Devices" button [top center-right] to access MIDI settings.

ADDENDUM: you can easily access the Audio MIDI Setup utility right from Finale's MIDI Menu [MIDI menu > Open Audio MIDI Setup...].

Boy Oh Boy the bizzare Midisport 2x2. I've had one for years, and while I swear by it because its cheap, it has probably the worst interface out there. While coreMidi is supposed to work for finale 2004, I've never seen it work well. What I had to do to get it to work consistantly, is first install lastest driver in both 9 & X (I don't know why, but installing the 9 driver actually helped). Then I installed the lastest version of OMS. However, before using finale with it I connected the 2x2 and restarted. I think that the way the driver works is that when you start up your computer, the driver searches for the device. If driver cannot find the device, the driver pretends that it doesn't exists. I'm guess the programers thought that this would be a memory saving feature. Its a little counterintutive because of the nature of Mac OS X, but you get what you pay for. I think they actually fix this problem in there large USB-Midi Devices. I heard that the 8x8 works really smoothly. If you restart after you connect the device, then Finale should recognize it. If not, check your hardware profile under "about this mac." If your not seeing the device (I think I just calls it USB device) then I might check your USB card & Cable.

It's not an issue fo the driver not being recognized. It's that I have to restart the synth EVERY TIME I use play feature in Finale because something overfills its MIDI buffer. All of the same hardware works perfectly fine with 2003. I am tempted to return 2004 because it is not usable for me in this way. I am frustrated beyond belief.

I'm new to Finale, but long-experienced in both music notation and computer technology.
I've got a Midiman 1x1 and to date have not gotten it to make a sound. No lights other than
the power, indicating it sees no MIDI data at all. My current gear is ancient. (A keyboard and
sound module, both vintage 1987, but should work.) My question: I installed 2004 before
attempting to attach MIDI gear. Now I have a vague recollection of seeing something about
how 2004 is tempermental about such things and may not like it. I don't like the idea of
reinstalling 2004, but will if there's a reasonable chance that it might solve the problem.
Has anyone heard anything to that effect?
