S61mk2 keyboard is recognized, but keys not sending MIDI
Hi people. My S61mk2 is not functioning correctly with my new Win11 system, after having worked perfectly for many years with my old Win7 system.
I boot Komplete Kontrol stand-alone, which recognizes the keyboard. Under Controller it correctly says KK S61 mk2. In Preferences>MIDI, the KK DAW-1 boxes are ticked for Input and Output, along with my other MIDI devices.
I load up a sound from the software, and it appears on the display of the S61. But playing the keyboard produces no sound. I play my other keyboard, and I'm hearing sound, AND, the blue LEDs light up on the S61 ! And also, the knobs on the S61 are changing the sound as expected. But the keys and wheels of the S61 aren't sending anything.
This is repeated when I boot up Cubase. I can use Play/Stop to control Cubase, and the rotary dial to move tracks up/down, mute/solo tracks with those buttons, etc, but there is no MIDI input from the keys.
I've tried reinstalling the KK MIDI driver several times. I tried downloading the Firmware Updater, but it doesn't recognize that the keyboard is connected.
I'm using the same USB cable that I used on my old system for several years. I read that sometimes a USB2 port works better than USB3, so I changed to that, and the behaviour is exactly the same.
Many thanks for any ideas to try from here....
