Hi, had keyboard for a few years but not had a massive amount of use. I am not getting any midi out through USB for keys, mod wheel and pitch bend. Komplete kontrol software works fine and mixi ox detects midi out from the kontrols but again not keys, mod or pitch bend. I've tried usb cable with my m32 controller and that's fine. I feel the usb port may be broken. Its not loose and has had no damage but I can half pull out the cable and get usb disconnected audio warning but keyboard is still powered. Very disappointing as had little use over the years. Any thoughts as I am about to whip off the cover to see if the port looks dodgy?

    It was only showing komplete kontrol Daw-1 it's now working though. As per above I uninstall the kk mk2 driver and re-installed and it worked. This was the first thing I went to try when having issue but after downloading driver and trying to install, the only option was uninstall so I knew it was already installed and just moved on. πŸ˜…

    Have you tried the 5 pin Midi sockets to output the keys / controls? This would then determine whether it was the keys / controls or the USB socket which is at fault.

    So I took it apart, checked continuity across usb connections to circuit board and all OK. 5 pin midi is not sending any signal. When I hook up to any gear including komplete kontrol, midi ox, cubase ext, the only midi devi e listed is KK DAW-1. Device manager is showing 3 listings for S61 so removed them, restarted windows and they showed up again. So all named after keyboard but second one has suffix DD and third one DFU. Hmm just noticed that it's listing KK MK2 MIDI as driver missing. That wasn't there last time I checked. It's also showing under other devices. My M32 is showing correctly under sound and games. OMG I unistalled the s61 driver, installed again and it's working. I've had the bloody thing in pieces πŸ˜…. Oh well as long as it works

    If you open just Komplete Kontrol standalone software, what is the MIDI Input tab in preferences showing (screenshot)?
