2 USB to Midi- One Roland XP80, One Korg NX5r Rack

Hi there,  
I am a bit handicapped with my eyes, so please excuse my typos,
I work with 800x600 and have still the MS-Screen Lens in use
 
Now then...
My Xp-80 connected via Midisport USB worked Rx/Tx all fine
I made Thru Port to the Korg Nx5r=(NS5r+Yamaha XG Module)
Now the Korg doesnt recieve anything, itself, it does seem to send midi ticks - demo songs gives LED indication.
 
BTW
I programme my Synths either in VB.Net or -if it is (really really) necessary- in C#
I prefer the SysExCommands but I use NAudio in VisualStuadio
 
Have you any idea to control both of my Sythies, doesnt matter if it´s
in MS-VStudio, MidiOx, even (yes I bought it 2003) CubaseSX or Cakewalk
 
To whom it may.... Thanks

Hi
You don't say what MidiSport device you are using, but if it is the 2x2 it has a 'Direct Thru' button. Is this what you are talking about or is it a UNO or a different MidiSport (4x4 or 8XCool?
 
I'll assume it is a UNO and you have used the In, Out and Thru On the XP-80
 
PC-> USB-> UNO Out -> XP-80 In
  XP-80 Thru -> NS5r In
 
Either:  
XP-80 Out -> UNO In -> USB-> PC
or
NS5r Out -> UNO In -> USB-> PC
 
If you want both synths connected youw ill need either a MidiSport 2x2 (or greater)
or
A hardware Midi merger like Midi Solutions Merger https://midisolutions.com/prodmrg.htm
Xp-80 Out -> Merger In 1
NX5r Out -> Merger In 2
and
Merger Out (either one) -> UNO In
 
If you are sending or receiving Sysex the header will separate the data.
The M-Audio driver is MultiClient so you can have the two editors running t the same time.
 
Hope the helps
Royce

Sorry for the late reply,
no excusion just MeMyselfAndI missed it.
 
You were right, it´s a MidiSportUno.
I (now) have the USB to the XP80 In and Out - and a single 5PinMidi via Thru
to the Korg. Works good - even sending Sysex to the Korg incl. Sound Definitions-  
I do it all with "full qualified"  SysEx Msgs, giving me the possibility to set up the Channels I need by muting the Korg or the Other when playing or recording.
 
So far, my programs etup ist made for playing, having the Banks/Patches/tones for both (and my Niece´s) little Yamaha in a small SQLExpress (for testing also a SqlLite) with all MSB/LSB.
For receiving what is on the panels the Programm reads the "SYSTEM COMMONS" from the XP80 (or I replug the MdiiUno to the Korg, he is so 'lonelyplugged') getting quite everyting.
 
As I have gotten deeper into the Midi Implementations of Korg/roland (could have been easier) /yamaha(their XG is open)  and akai/oberheim (it is sailing with hopefully well chartered maps) I wrote some Forms with totally unboung Sliders Knobs Pitchers that will adjust to the Instrument what is chosing.
But before/aside the Sound editing, the goal is to get the SysEx´s dumps into the machines
 
1. (Dump/Single/IdontKnow) *.Syx is read (maybe as a BYTESTRAM into BLOB)
-done
2. BLOB will be divided by anything like "F0... F7" "...F7 F0..." must and will(!) do
-nearby
---
{
3. or 1.
Order BLOB by SysX Header (beside F0 F7 because the specific Devices Header differs, maybe a resource-file or even a table for Maufacturer/Devive/InstantceNo.
}
-to do to want
 
4. Turning the "selected" BLOB into a temoprary Table/Stream to prevent owerwrite the original
 
5 Sending out, should be saved (ok. r/w protection check)
 
Am i so far right with my project?
 
There is plenty of stuff out there for free, I know.  
 
But why should I learn Cakewalk or Steinberg editing for hours and days without knowing_
what that and this and tat on slide or knob does?
 
Hope
you can nderstand my crazy thoughts
 
Nice holidays the year end
