Default which usb midi interface?

I play soft synths through my computer via a keyboard. The only trouble is sticky midi notes! I currently use an m-audio uno midi/usb device. would buying a different one make any difference? If so, which would be the best to go for?

No, your keyboard alaying ability are the things which change this as far as i know. Sort them out first.

Robcore is right but if you do want to get a good midi interface something like the MOTU Midi express will hit the spot, has 8 MIDI ins and 8/9 outs i think.

i use the emo 0404 soundcard for my midi input and its been the best one yet ive had other midi adaptors for my pc but most did the samething once a few instruments started too play in cubase..the notes would hang and samples would go out of time but the emu 0404 has been brilliant ..best place to buy one and cheapest is dv247

Waxxy, I already have the E-MU 0202 soundcard. do you recommend I just forget that and go all out and buy the 0404 or do you think the 0202 + Xmidi would suffice?

you could try updating the drivers of your 0202 car first get the updates from here ..

E-MU Systems - 0202 USB 2.0 - USB 2.0 Audio Interface

click on downloads the choose pc or mac.you could also try changing the latency maybe its too high or too low i have mine set between 10-20 ms anything higher or lower gives me major problems.

if your still having problems but the 0404 card or buy the proteus x bundle its only a few pounds more than the normal priced 0404 but you get the brilliant proteus x vsti with loads of drums and sounds.

also the 0404 has built in fx chip so theres less strain on your computer when working. hope this helps

Hey Waxxy, I think you've solved it! I have increased my latency to 12 and have been playing a while with not one sticking note! Does increasing the latency give more time to process all the digital data?

It increases the buffer size so your CPU chucks more of the info into the Cache at anyone point for fast recall.
