What is your MIDI interface make and model? There are a number of these that don't work properly when SysEx messages are passed through them and this prevents the editor from getting the data from the FPP.

Let us know.

This one?

Iam sorry, but we've never seen that interface before today - The chances are it is unable to handle the System Exclusive (SysEx) messaging generated by FloorPOD Plus and this is why you are not seeing any connection. Many budget USB MIDI interfaces are really only reliable for passing notes, CCs and other performance events as these are short and simple data - SysEx messages are longer and more complex than this. When a MIDI interface fails to pass SysEx messages, the software cannot communicate with the instrument

You should try a different USB MIDI interface such as any of the Cakewalk UM or M-Audio MidiSport (UNO). These are certified to work with heavy volumes of SysEx information traffic and therefore recommended for use with Vyzex and Vyzor editor software.

Please let us know how it goes with a different interface made by a known manufacturer. Good luck!

If you're having issues with an M-Audio UNO interface, the problem is likely the driver:

Ifyou UNO is over four years old, it may have a firmware/hardware problem - I recall there was a bad batch released before 2008 and that a firmware update was necessary (which was automatically applied by the driver package).

Good luck,

ok i looked at the driver and they only have drivers for the uno compatible with mac osx 6.8. i have 7.5. so the solution would be to wait till m-adio comes out with a verson of the driver for osx 7.5 correct? and im impatient so if i wanna get another interface that is compatible with my computer whats a list of acceptable interfaces?

Check out this other thread on the forum for details on the recommended interfaces:

Forthe latest Roland UM MIDI Interface Mac drivers (including Lion and Mountain Lion) go here:

Youcan't go wrong with any of the UM line. They are very good.
