Hi, I find 2 MIDI in and 2 MIDI out devices and the Editor keeps saying "MIDI communication unsuccessful". Editor downloaded yesterday from the website, controller just purchased. Actually, presets are not saved to / recalled from the controller, regardless of which device I select.

Windows 10 Pro.

Please advise... Thanks!

Tried installing the VI49 Editor on a Windows 7 Pro machine, results are the very same as described above for Windows 10. Do you have a clue on why does Windows see 2 devices? Please leave registry issues as the very last solution on Planet Earth.

For everyone struggling with this issue on Windows: the 2 "shadow" devices have different names on a Mac: "VI49 EDITOR Out" and "VI49 EDITOR In". THE SHADOW DEVICES MUST BE SELECTED IN THE EDITOR'S OPTIONS | DEVICE SETUP DIALOG!!!

Thanks Alesis for the user friendly software.
