I have a general problem with MIDI-controllers based on the standard USB class-compliant driver.The devices get recognized correctly and are shown as available MIDI devices. However, actually selecting them in a program does not work.I tried it with MidiOX (Error message: "There is not enough memory available for this task. Quit one or more applications..."), a .NET programming library (same error) and NI Kontakt (no error, but driver does not work). There definitely is enough memory available (about 1 GB).I think this is a general error with all class-compliant MIDI devices (I tried an Alesis Q25 and a Livid OhmRGB - same behaviour for both).My windows is completely up-to-date and the MIDI devices are not used by any other application.Any ideas?
I have the assumption that this is a general problem with devices that use the USB class-compliant MIDI driver.
I tried a "Livid OhmRGB" as well as an "Alesis Q25" - both do not bring their own driver but instead use the general class-compliant driver. Thus, they do not appear in the compatibility center. However, both are compatible with Windows 7 according to the manufacturer. I also asked in the Livid forum and people have the OhmRGB running without any problems under Win 7. Both devices work under other computers (WinXP, Mac).
Thanks for the reply.

I think this is a general problem with all Midi controllers that use the standard Windows class-compliant driver.
- Livid OhmRGB
- Alesis Q25
- icon iControl
All are based on the standard Windows driver - none of them works. The iControl did work on the very same computer some time ago, but does not anymore. I could not find anything in the Event Viewer. Is there a way to re-install the class-compliant Midi driver?
The error is always the same and already appears when I select the driver:
My system is up-to-date:
