Just bought an H7600 and need VSIG setup help...

November 17, 2017 - 06:56 am

Hello, 

I've been cruising around forums and manuals for the past couple of days but so far I haven't been able to find the info I need. Here's my situation: 

I bought the H7600 second hand from a guy who used it with VSIG. He included a USB to Serial adaptor and the cable he *thinks* he used to get it working. He seemed reasonably sure. He told me that it had been a couple of years since he ran VSIG so he couldn't be totally sure. So he included a second cable 'just in case'. So this is one potential curve ball... 

I'm running this all on a fairly new (1 year old?) Asus laptop. I'm using the cable he said was the right one. 

I've got the COM port for the USB/Serial adaptor set to 1 from the Device Manager in Windows and have all the settings here matching the settings that are on the H7600 and in the VSIG app itself.

When I select MIDI>Get Dbase from the menu. I get an irregularly flashing Clock with the arms moving (sorta randomly) with the word "MIDI" on it. Initally I thought this was a good thing, but it just goes on forever. I let it sit for 40+ mins one time and there didn't seem to be any change.

So I spent Tuesday night gradually reducing the baud rate (in all three places) and waiting to see if anything different would happen. I got down to the lowest baud rate the 7600 would do and still got the same result. It ate hours and hours of my time :| 

Can anyone chuck me a lifeline here? VSIG is a huge reason I bought this fella.... 

Thanks in advance for any tips you can bestow.

Sounds like you have a serial problem. You should try it with a different adaptor and cables.

Hi! Thanks for the response. I updated the driver of my USB/Serial adaptor and I think I'm making headway. Now instead of going forever, Vsig now gives an error that my computer is low on memory--which is odd considering my computer is pretty tricked out. Can anyone offer advice on this bit of strangeness? Many thanks, again!
