So far life goes on here in Green Bay. Lots of cancellations (including bus service- yikes!), but church is still happening and I will pretty much be needed at work no matter what. We are lucky to have three paper mills, so we are confident that toilet paper will return. I'm running Folding@Home on any computer I can to help fight. Prayers for everyone who has it much worse.

Thanks Mike.

Here in the UK, they seem to be in a rut of following scientific/medical advice. Trouble is all scientific  / medical advice is different between countries.  Even in the UK, we have 4 Chief medical officers for example (England, Ireland, Scotland and wales).

They are now suggesting that those who have reached an age of 70 or more should stay at home for 4 months.


But we seem to be plodding along.

Keep well everybody.

Thanks mates!
Here in my country things have turned a little weird... It's a hard situation because the whole country seems to be stopped. Closed businesses and collective hysteria. Despite all of it I'm (luckily) still not infected, so I'll do my best to remain heathly! ^_^

It has only been mentioned briefly in one thread that I have seen, but I wanted to offer my thoughts and prayers for all of the forum members, especially those in areas especially hard-hit by COVID-19. So far, I've experienced a number of inconveniences (closed businesses, cancelled church services, and a few minor shortages such as toilet paper).  But I need to remind myself that I am still healthy, and things are much worse elsewhere. At this point there isn't much to do but hunker down and weather the coming storm.

I hope everyone who is reading this is doing well. If you are able, please share a few words with the rest of us so we will know how you are doing.

Best,

Mike

Uh? I should have lost something...

Hello Lloyd, and many thanks for your reply.
The Device Manager certainly does see the USB Keyboard.
I had forgotten (after years on Linux Mint) about changing the input. It always worked from the USB cable.
Now I see NoteWorthy Composer is available for Ubuntu Linux. It may well work on KDE, which is what I run on my laptop.
Thank you again for your feedback.
Definitely appreciated.

Hi Ian,
your Evolution MK-249c USB Keyboard is a MIDI controller, it means that it will not produce any sound by itself. You will need to use some virtual instrument to generate sounds and then set EvoMK-249c as a MIDI Input. By the way, this controller was discontinued long ago so connecting via USB could be a problem with W10 drivers etc... If W10 sees the keyboard as a MIDI IN Interface then every software must see it too, but if you are having troubles with NWC to see it you can try connecting it via MIDI (if you have any MIDI ports on your soundcard/audio interface, of course). You will need a standard 5-pin MIDI cable connected from the MIDI OUT from the EvoMK-249c to the MIDI IN port, then set this MIDI IN port as a "Input Device" in NWC and you'll get the keyboard connected to NWC inserting notes in your score... but remember that NWC will not produce sounds by itself (it's just a notation software), so you will need a virtual instrument anyway =(

There's lots of free piano (or organ, synth, etc.) VST/Libraries on the net to achieve a good virtual instrument setup on your computer: i.e. Kontakt Player with some piano library, VSTHost (or an old version of Cantabile Lite) with a decent free piano VST... google it and find the best option for your needs ;)

Good luck,
Lloyd.

In some thread on the internet, an M-Audio person says "we dont know whether it works with Windows 10"; but he points people to the Windows 7 driver site and says "try it, it might work". That site is here: https://m-audio.com/support/download/drivers/usb-midi-series-5.0.1

Hope that helps.
