Having problems with RTP Midi and the Startech USB to VGA interface?
If like me you took the plunge and upgraded to Windows 8 then you may have found a few things no longer working.
First I found that my Startech USB to VGA interface was showing a black screen. You could see the mouse arrow but no applications would be seen once dragged across.
Solution – uninstall driver and reinstall from Startechs website and it should all start working again. No promises though, this worked for me not guaranteeing anything.
Second, when I fired up Reaper I found that I could no longer control it with my ipad and AC-Core.
Solution – uninstall completely – this means all RTP midi apps and stopping the RTP service.
Reinstall and it should work again – Once again no promises, yes this worked for me but no guarantees here.
