I already have the <MidiSport 4x4> looking to upgrade to get more midi ports. Having a hard time figuring out how to integrate the 4x4 MidiSport.Had it up and running>
Triggering the Sound Mods/MPC200xl drums is the problem.Do you have to have a midi cable hookup from the Midisport to the Digi002R to get the sequencer software to recognize the MIDI data after opening up a MidiTrack <or> does the MIDI data gets transmitted down the USB Cable?.PS I have the outputs of the Sound Mod's and MPC connected to the audio inputs to Digi002R.Channel5/6 and 7/8.

Connect your MPC200XL, 2 sound mods and M-Audio 49 to the MidiSport via midi in/out and connect the midisport to the mac via USB. You need to make sure AMS recognizes your MidiSport. If you see it in AMS, then manually add your MPC200XL, 2 sound mods and M-Audio 49. You do this by clicking Add Device and choosing the model of the device. Connect them via midi in/out to the MidiSport in AMS by using your mouse. When you open PT, create a midi track and choose the input as your controller and choose a transmit channel. On the output choose which sound mod you want to trigger. I hope this helps.
