I have recently got a sweex 4.1 budget soundcard with a built in
mpu-401 compatible midi port / gate. Sound from the soundcard is
working fine, but midi isenít. There is no communication when setting
up midi at all. I have enabled midi in the bios, but still nothing.
All drivers are installed and XP says the hardware is working
properly. Default midi playback device is MPU-401 (but my motherboard

Have done all i can to try and get the damn thing working properly but
still nothing. Please help, or guide me as to what I should do.
